Implementation of a proprietary CAD graphics subsystem using the GKS standard interface.
This project involved porting a Graphical Software Package (GSP) from the proprietary IDS-BO Gerber CAD system onto a more modern computer that would allow student access for further study and development. Because of the ...
Combustion stress in compression-ignition engines.
South Africa produces alternative fuels from a number of different sources. The properties of a fuel are known to affect the nature of combustion in compression-ignition engines significantly, and have occasionally ...
Modelling and analysis of turbogenerators in single machine and multi- machine subsynchronous resonance studies.
Subsynchronous Resonance (SSR) is a condition which occurs when turbogenerators are connected to series capacitively compensated transmission systems and it can cause large scale damage to the turbogenerators. The ...

An Epidemiological study of gentamicin resistant gram negative bacteria with particular reference to pseudomonas aeruginosa at King Edward V111 Hospital, Durban
The sources of gentamicin resistant pseudomonads and enterobacteria were studied in detail. A total of 1703 gentamicin resistant gram negative bacilli (GRGNB) isolated from patients, staff and their immediate environment ...
Gas residence time testing and model fitting : a study of gas-solids contacting in fluidised beds.
This work is concerned with the effect of vessel geometry on the hydrodynamics of fluidisation of a bed of milled iron oxide. The effect of going from a cold model representative of a typical pilot plant reactor to one ...
