Finescale temporal and spatial dynamics of epigaeic ants in Fynbos: Sampling implications
(2007)Conservation and management strategies are dependent on reliable species richness information. Accurate species richness counts, especially for invertebrates, are almost impossible to obtain from sampling alone, due to the ...

Fingerprinting and identification of bacteria present in UASB granules used to treat winery, brewery, distillery or peachlye canning wastewater
(2007)The effective operation of the anaerobic digestion process in an upflow anaerobic sludge blanket (UASB) bioreactor is dependent on the microbial composition of the UASB granules. The granules contain a consortium of bacteria, ...



Finite element analysis of a waveguide filter
(2002)The implementation of a vector element FEM code in MATLAB using brick elements is discussed. The code is designed for waveguide analysis, and it is used to analyze a waveguide filter. The results of this FEM code are ...

Finite element analysis of a wing type structure with experimental verification of results.
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 197606)INTRODUCTION: The advent of the high speed computer has revolutionized structural design in all spheres of Engineering. Up till then structural stress analysis was limited to oversimplification of the structure in ...

FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS OF STRESSES AND MOVEMENTS IN AN EARTH DAM.
(Univ of Stellenbosch, Inst for Structural Engineering, Stellenbosch, S Afr, 1985)A number of plane strain finite element analyses were performed on a somewhat simplified structurefoundation combination, each analysis investigating a possible solution to the problem. The first analysis, that of the ...

Finite element analysis of tubular track system
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 201212)ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The Tubular Track (TT) railway system is a twin beam modular railway system consisting of two reinforced concrete (RC) beams on which steel rails are continuously supported. The beams are linked with ...

A finite element based optimisation tool for electrical machines
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 201103)ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Knowledge of the magnetic fields in the domain of electrical machines is required in order to model machines accurately. It is difficult to solve these fields analytically because of the complex geometries ...

Finite element based simulation of the current waveform of the switched reluctance machine
(2002)The paper investigates the viability of using finite element time step analysis directly in the simulation of the current waveform of the switched reluctance machine under dynamic single pulse conditions. A method for ...

Finite element modelling of shielded metal arc welding
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 200512)This study involved the modelling and verification of the Shielded Metal Arc Welding of mild steel with the focus on displacement and temperature distribution prediction of welded plates. The project was divided into ...


Finite element tearing and interconnecting for the electromagnetic vector wave equation in two dimensions
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 200703)The finite element tearing and interconnect(FETI) domain decomposition(DD) method is investigated in terms of the 2D transverse electric(TEz) finite element method(FEM). The FETI is for the first time rigorously derived ...

Finite Land: Challenges Institutionalising Land Restitution in South Africa, 1995  2000
(Carfax Publishing, Taylor and Francis Ltd CARFAX PUBLISHING, RANKINE RD, BASINGSTOKE, ENGLAND, HANTS, RG24 8PR, 2012)


A finite volume method for the analysis of the thermoflow field of a solar chimney collector
(Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 200012)ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This study investigates the implementation of the finite volume numerical method applicable to nonorthogonal control volumes and the application of the method to calculate the thermoflow field within ...

Finiteset model predictive control of a flying capacitor converter with heuristic voltage vector preselection
(2011)This paper presents a finiteset model predictive strategy for current control of a resistiveinductiveactive load with a threephase threelevel flying capacitor converter. A heuristic method is used to reduce the ...
