A study of the phenomenon of bridging of sugarcane bagasse
This work reports the results of a systematic study of the factors that affect the bridging behaviour of bagasse. It shows that traditional bulk solids theory is inappropriate for predicting bagasse flow mainly because ...
Measurement and thermodynamic interpretation of high pressure vapour-liquid equilibrium data.
.. Detailed experimental and thermodynamic studies of. the isothermal phase equilibria for the
A mechanistic evaluation and design of tunnel support systems for deep level South African mines.
The design of support systems, comprising rock bolt reinforcement and fabric containment components for tunnels in deep level mining environments does not currently cater well for adverse rock mass conditions. This often ...
Performance studies of the tubular filter press.
The tubular filter press is a novel tubular configured filter press for the filtration or dewatering of sludges. The unique features of the filter press are: (i) during the cake deposition cycle, cake is deposited on ...
Evaluating cadastral systems in periods of uncertainty : a study of Cape Town's Xhosa-speaking communities.
Evaluating the effectiveness of a cadastral system in situations where the social, political and economic environments are volatile and there is uncertainty over whether the cadastral system is likely to be used in the ...
Development of sounding equipment for the assessment of the time- settlement characteristics of recent alluvial deposits when subjected to embankment loads.
The whole of this thesis is my work unless specifically indicated to the contrary in the text, and has not been submitted in part or in whole to any other University. Some thirty years ago the author operated a deep ...
Mathematical modelling and experimental study of the kinetics of the acid sulphite pulping of eucalyptus wood.
The chemistry of the batch cooking process at Sappi Saiccor, relating to both the pulp and liquor, was investigated with the aim of using kinetic expressions to develop an improved process control model. The mill produces ...
The hydrological effects of fire in South African catchments.
Stream-flow and storm-flow in four small catchments were analysed by the paired catchment method for a response to fire. Two of the catchments were vegetated with over-mature fynbos (the indigenous scrub vegetation of ...
