An investigation of a supersonic chemical reactor.
The development of a supersonic chemical reactor is examined. The central concept of such a reactor is that gases can be expanded to supersonic speed which will result in a decrease in their static temperature to the ...
A study of the cane sugar diffusion process.
A mathematical model has been developed to represent the extraction of sugar from sugar cane in the diffusion process. As a consequence of the structure of prepared cane, extraction is postulated to occur via two first ...
A study of the use of statistical turbulence parameters in correlating axial dispersion data in the central core of air flowing in a pipe.
The longitudinal fluctuations at a point in the core of air flowing through a 15 cm. diameter pipe at a mean centerline velocity of 13.4 and 29.5 m/sec. were measured with a hot-wire anemometer. This signal, after analog ...
Real-time interactive multiprogramming.
This thesis describes a new method of constructing a real-time interactive software system for a minicomputer to enable the interactive facilities to be extended and improved in a multitasking environment which supports ...
The lightning ground flash : an engineering study.
The thesis is concerned with a study of the electrical engineering parameters of the lightning ground flash - i.e. the statistical distributions of peak current amplitudes, discharge current waveform characteristics, and ...
The development of instrumentation for the direct measurement of heat loss from man in a normal working mode.
Based on a theoretical analysis of the heat transfer process between the human body and its environment, graphs are presented for determining the theoretical skin surface temperatures and sweat rates as a function of the ...
A study of the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis at elevated temperatures in a shock tube.
The shock tube was used to investigate the product spectrum of the initial stages of the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis carried out at elevated temperatures. Special attention was paid to the relationship between methane ...
Changes in the chemical composition of sugar cane (Saccharum officinarum) during storage.
An outline is given of the South African sugar industry, with particular emphasis on the unit operations which make up the industrial process for manufacturing sugar from cane. Current knowledge of the chemistry of ...
