Determination of phase equilibria for long-chain linear hydrocarbons by Monte Carlo simulation.
The focus of this study was to determine the coexistence phase equilibria for three groups of long-chain linear hydrocarbons (n-alkanes, 1-alkenes and 1-alcohols) using Monte Carlo simulation. Three common transferable ...
CFD modelling of a novel clarifier design for use in sugar cane juice clarification.
The purpose of clarification in the sugar industry is to remove soluble, insoluble and colloidal matter from cane juice. Efficient clarification is required to produce high quality sugar and to prevent entrainment of solids ...
Feasibility study of a neural network current controller for a boost rectifier.
During the past two decades, Quality of Supply has become a serious problem for Variable Speed Drives in the industrial and commercial sectors. Quality of Supply problems can trip Variable Speed Drives, which results in ...
Designing optimisation of a cane haulage vehicle.
The sugar industry transports in excess of 20 million tons of sugarcane per annum, equating to approximately 800 000 road consignments. This entails substantial expenditure on vehicle capital and operational costs. There ...
Robust equipment for the measurement of vapour-liquid equilibrium at high temperatures and high pressures.
In this work VLE data was measured on three different pieces of equipment. Measurements were undertaken in the laboratory of Professor Gmehling in Oldenburg, Germany using two different static cells and in the Thermodynamics ...
Vapour-liquid equilibria studies for binary systems containing 1-hexene and n-hexane
Experimental vapour-liquid equilibria (VLE) data is required for the design of separation
Experimental and theoretical analysis of heat transfer on a transonic blade.
This dissertation involves the experimental and numerical analysis of heat transfer on a transonic high turning angle gas turbine blade, which has been performed on the supersonic cascade experimental facility at the ...
Autonomous mobile materials handling platform architecture for mass customisation.
In order to facilitate the materials handling requirements of production structures configured for Mass Customisation Manufacturing, the design of requisite materials handling and routing systems must encompass new conceptual ...
Modelling of the Marianridge wastewater treatment plant.
One of the consequences of the social and economIc change due to industrialisation is the generation of industrial wastewater which requires treatment before being released into the natural aquatic environment. The ...
Continuous on line relative tan delta monitoring of high voltage insulation.
The thesis discusses the findings of an investigation into the use of novel condition monitoring techniques for oil-paper insulated high voltage equipment as used on the Eskom Main Transmission System. This research into ...
