A study of hydrodynamics and mass transfer in small bore deep shaft reactors.
The phenomenology of vertical two phase flow was examined
Autonomous materials handling robot for reconfigurable manufacturing systems.
The concept of mass producing custom products, though extremely beneficial to the commercial, and retail industries, does come with some limitations. One of these is the occurrence of bottlenecks in the materials handling ...
A comparison of the effects of tillage on soil physical properties and microbial acitivity at different levels of nitrogen fertilizer at Gourton Farm, Loskop, KwaZulu-Natal.
Long-term food security and environmental quality are closely linked to maintaining soil quality. Therefore, the assessment of the effect of agricultural management practices on soil chemical, physical and biological ...
A study and implementation analysis of an anti-sagging device for power transmission lines using shape memory alloys
Shape memory alloys (SMA’s) are a family of metals that exhibit properties of pseudo-elasticity
An assessment of scale issues related to the configuration of the ACRU model for design flood estimation
There is a frequent need for estimates of design floods by hydrologists and engineers for the design of hydraulic structures. There are various techniques for estimating these design floods which are dependent largely on ...
The study of the kinetics of degradation of mechanical-biological pretreated waste using test cells.
This research was carried out at the Bisasar Road Landfill site, Durban, South Africa,
Spatial and reproductive ecology and population status of the Nile crocodile (Crocodylus niloticus) in the Lake St Lucia estuarine system, South Africa.
The Lake St Lucia estuarine system, Africa’s largest and oldest protected estuary, also contains the largest Nile Crocodile (Crocodylus niloticus) population in a single waterbody in South Africa. We investigated the ...
Biological and molecular characterization of South African bacteriophages infective against Staphylococcus aureus subsp. aureus Rosenbach 1884, casual agent of bovine mastitis.
Bacteriophage therapy has been exploited for the control of bacterial diseases in fauna, flora and humans. However, the advent of antibiotic therapy lead to a cessation of most phage research. Recently, the problem of ...
Development of a pilot scale black liquor gasifier.
The use of black liquor gasification as an alternative to conventional chemical and energy recovery systems for spent liquors is an area of particular interest to the pulp and paper industry. The motivation to explore this ...
