High temperature fatigue crack growth behaviour of TIMETAL 21S in an oxidizing environment.
The high temperature fatigue crack growth behaviour of the newly developed, metastable titanium-based alloy, TIMETAL 21S, was investigated in an inert and an oxidizing environment. The investigation adopted a two pronged ...
A study of comminution in a vertical stirred ball mill.
A 20 litre experimental batch and continuous test rig and 5 litre batch and 50 litre continuous test rigs for stirred ball milling were built at the University of Natal and Mintek respectively. All the mills featured a ...
Optimized digital signal processing algorithms applied to radio communications.
The application of digital signal processing to radio communications has come of age with the advent of low power, high speed microprocessors and over the past five years, various transceiver architectures, utilizing ...
Comparison between air drying and steam drying in a fluidized bed.
No abstract available.
Process and modelling studies in forest hydrology.
The demand for timber products in South Africa, and consequently afforestation, is increasing. There exists, however, abundant experimental evidence that trees utilise more soil water than other dryland crops. Because ...
Computer-aided design of RF MOSFET power amplifiers.
The process of designing high power RF amplifiers has in the past relied heavily on measurements, in conjunction with simple linear theory. With the advent of the harmonic balance method and increasingly faster computers, ...
Non-stationary responses on hoisting cables with slowly varying length.
Cables in hoisting installations, due to their flexibility, are susceptible to vibrations. A common arrangement in industrial hoisting systems comprises a driving winder drum, a steel wire cable, a sheave mounted in headgear, ...
A packet radio system for an industrial data network.
This project was undertaken for a commercial electronics company, CONTROL LOGIC (CONLOG) which is involved in the research, design, development and manufacture of data acquisition, control, energy management and automotive ...
A comparative study of various speech recognition techniques.
Speech recognition systems fall into four categories, depending on whether they are speaker-dependent or independent of speaker population and on whether they are capable of recognizing continuous speech or only ...
Investigation into on-line optimization of cutting tool geometry.
Metal cutting is an important process used to manufacture components with machined surfaces or holes. Due to the wide usage o f this manufacturing process, research with the aim to optimize the cutting processes is ...
