Capacity of vertically loaded piles in low density sands.
The reduction of pile capacity associated with volume contraction of the soil close to the pile surface has been reported in carbonate deposits offshore North West Australia and in residual deposits of Southern ...
The separation of hexafluoropropylene and hexafluoropropylene oxide using toluene and a novel solvent.
ABSTRACT PELCHEM, the chemical division of NECSA, produces the fluorocarbon hexafluoropropylene (HFP) onsite. In 2005 PELCHEM initiated research into the wet oxidation of HFP to produce the higher value fluorocarbon ...
An investigation into the mechanical biological pretreatment of garden waste using forced aeration and it impact on carbon emissions reduction potential
Disposal of garden waste is a major concern globally and particularly in a developing
Survivability stategies in all optical networks.Survivability stategies in all optical networks.
Recent advances in fiber optics technology have enabled extremely high-speed transport of different forms of data, on multiple wavelengths of an optical fiber, using Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM). It has ...
The study of the extraction of pectin from dried lemon peels.
Pectin is a polysaccharide found in plant cell walls. It is a linear molecular chain of D-galacturonic acid units linked by a 1—»4 glycosidic bonds. Pectin is widely used in the food industry. The main sources of pectin ...
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 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
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,
