  • Wright, Tiaan (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2013-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This study focuses on the water demand of selected residential properties with access to groundwater in serviced areas of the Cape Peninsula. This winter rainfall region is typified by hot and dry summer ...
  • Muller, Regardt I   Booysen, Marthinus J. (South African Conference on Computational and Applied Mechanics - SACAM, 2014-01)
    The availability and depletion of natural resources is increasingly punted as the limiting factor for sustainability. A lot of focus, especially in drought-stricken countries, is placed on water conservation. One way to ...
  • Tukker, Mary Jean (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2000-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The processes of monitoring, modelling and managing the water quality of a catchmerit system including all its unique complexities and interrelationships requires an innovative tool or set of tools to ...
  • Wassung, Natalie (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: South Africa has a mean annual precipitation far lower than the global average. This is a fundamental constraint to development, especially when the country has already run out of surplus water and ...
  • Schoeman, Karla (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2011-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The aim of this thesis is to investigate the suitability of TEM (Transverse Electromagnetic) horn antennas for use as feed structures for the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) radio telescope, in particular with ...
  • Harmse, Wynand (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2004-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Speech enhancement is the process of removing background noise from speech signals. The equivalent process for images is known as image denoising. While the Fourier transform is widely used for speech ...
  • Oosthuizen, Gert Adriaan (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Information on the milling of Ti6Al4V is limited; with most studies concluding that it is not possible to obtain a significant increase in the material removal rate (Qw). Tool wear maps can be a diagnostic ...
  • Niesler, Thomas (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2013-11)
    Thomas Niesler’s academic career began at the University of Stellenbosch where he obtained the BEng and MEng degrees in Electronic Engineering in 1991 and 1993 respectively. He moved to St John’s College, Cambridge, in ...
  • Gorgens, Johann F. (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2013-09)
    The pursuit of academic research is internationally considered to be a key deliverable of academic careers, with ever-increasing expectations of demonstrated research capacity and outputs as a means to substantiate ...
  • Van Jaarsveld, Barend Jacobus (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2013-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The objective of this project is to develop an electromagnetic model that can be used to accurately calculate the voltage distribution in a transformer winding structure when excited with standard impulse ...
  • Andriambeloson, Joely Andrianina (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2011-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Through the Karoo Array Telescope, and its extension MeerKAT, South Africa is demonstrating its capabilities to host the most powerful radio telescope ever, the Square Kilometre Array (SKA). This new ...
  • Schilder, Melanie (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2002-12)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This dissertation considers the wideband modelling of capacitive voltage sensors for open-air transmission line applications. Two novel topologies were introduced, namely a differential parallel plate ...
  • Lourens, Jako (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2013-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The successful operation of a man-pack VHF jamming system requires a compact and efficient antenna operating over a wide bandwidth. The design of such an antenna is the focus of this thesis. The antenna ...
  • Agjee, F. M. D. E. (Faatima, Moosa, Dawood, Ebrahim) (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2000-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Recent research has shown that standard substation capacitive voltage transformers (CVTs) and current transformers (CTs) can be used for the measurement of wideband high voltage phenomena by employing ...
  • Kruger, Andries Coenrad (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2011-03)
    ENGLISH ABSTRACT: In South Africa, wind constitutes the most critical environmental loading affecting the design of the built environment. The wind climatic information, which is currently incorporated in structural ...
