  • Ebertsohn, Nolan Wade (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2005-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Common mode currents are a major source of interference in electrical and electronic systems. A universal solution to counteract common mode interference is to introduce an electromagnetic shield with ...
  • Van der Merwe, Paul Stephanus (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2011-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The Karoo Array Telescope (KAT) will be used by South Africa in its bid to host the international Square Kilometre Array (SKA). As the SKA will have orders of magnitude greater sensitivity than existing ...
  • Lourens, Eliz-Mari (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2006-12)
    The predominately manual, time-consuming and error-prone procedure currently used in engineering offices for the calculation of preliminary column forces in multi-storey buildings constitutes the motive for the research ...
  • Van der Merwe, Joachim Christoffel (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2005-12)
    The two-dimensional flow-field through the stationary blade row of a radial inflow turbine in a torque converter was analysed by means of a potential flow model and a viscous flow model. The purpose was to compare the ...
  • Swiegers, Pierre Brink (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2011-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: When a sailing ship passes a moored ship the moored ship experiences forces and moments. These forces and moments cause the moored ship to move. The resulting ship motions due to the passing ship can ...
  • Wessels, P. (Pieter) (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 1996-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The present network of now gauging stations in South Africa has grown from isolated observations on an ad extensive is to an extensive network of stations across the country. Standardised gauging ...
  • Horn, Etienne (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2012-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: One of the main challenges in using the Discrete Element Method (DEM) is to specify the correct input parameter values. In general, the models are sensitive to the input parameter values and accurate ...
  • Du Toit, Nicolaas Serdyn (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2007-03)
    Electrical energy is continuously transported across the world by high voltage transmission lines. These transmission lines are however subject to losses beside the inherent resistive and dielectric losses. This additional ...
  • Du Preez, Johan Joubert (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2008-03)
    Call centres form an increasingly important part of the modern day business environment and perform an important role in the strategic and operational aspects of organisations. Call centres have emerged and developed to ...
  • Khumalo, Simphiwe (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2008-03)
    A communications protocol is designed for real time control and data handling for a Nanosatellite application. The communication protocol is based on the Controller Area Network (CAN) technology. The protocol handles ...
  • Mantel, Jessica Kirsten (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2011-10)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Additive Manufacturing is a relatively young technology that involves the layer-by-layer addition of material in solid, liquid or powder form to create parts. It is ideally suited for producing complex parts ...
  • Zeeman, Adriaan Siebrits   Booysen, Marthinus J.   Ruggeri, Giuseppe   Lagana, Bruno (IEEE -- Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2013-02)
    The Minibus public transportation sector and road safety remains a significant challenge in Africa. We propose a low cost system to monitor the taxi industry and encourage safe driving. A low cost capacitive proximity ...
  • Riley, Kim (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2012-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Capitalising on South Africa’s innovation resource through entrepreneurship in the creative industries. In light of the current global challenges as well as local needs and opportunities, there is ...
