    • Acoustic monitoring of DC placma arcs 

      Burchell, John James (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2008-03)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The arc, generated between the cathode and slag in a dc electric arc furnace (EAF), constitutes the principal source of thermal energy in the furnace. Steady state melting conditions rely on efficient ...

    • Clustering acoustic segments using multi- stage agglomerative hierarchical clustering 

      Lerato, Lerato; Niesler, Thomas (Public Library of Science, 2015)
      Agglomerative hierarchical clustering becomes infeasible when applied to large datasets due to its O(N2) storage requirements. We present a multi-stage agglomerative hierarchical clustering (MAHC) approach aimed at large ...

    • Evaluating the applications of spatial audio in telephony 

      Blum, Konrad (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-03)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Telephony has developed substantially over the years, but the fundamental auditory model of mixing all the audio from di erent sources together into a single monaural stream has not changed since the ...

    • Evaluation of active acoustic methodology in diagnosis of pleural effusion 

      Minai Zaiem, Hamed (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2013-03)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Pleural effusion is a common respiratory condition that is characterized by an abnormal collection of fluid in the lung cavity. In this study, an innovation using the transmission of sound into the ...
