    • Mass transfer in structured packing 

      Erasmus, Andre Brink (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2004-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Structured packing is a popular column internal for both distillation and absorption unit operations. This is due to the excellent mass transfer characteristics and low pressure drop that it offers ...

    • A mass transfer model for structured packing 

      Kawesha, David Mukuma (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2002-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The distillation process is the most widely used separating process in the chemical process industry. The optimal design of the distillation units can lead to reduced capital costs and improved energy ...

    • Material characterisation and response modelling of recycled concrete and masonry in pavements 

      Barisanga, Fabrice (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2014-04)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The global quest for sustainability has intensified the requirement for waste recycling in a number of countries. Waste recycle includes Construction and Demolition Waste (CDW), which emanates from the ...
