Advanced modelling of a borehole radar environment with the finite difference time domain method
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2001-12)
Over the last decade, as the mining industry of South Africa is moving to ever deeper mines, the borehole radar is becoming an increasingly important field of research. In December 2000, Burger completed his thesis on ...
Borehole radar system analysis in stratified geological systems applied to imaging of platiniferous reefs in the bushveld igneous
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2003-12)
The imaging of platiniferous reefs in the Bushveld Igneous Complex (BIC) is of great economical and sociological importance. Borehole radar technology has been identified as a viable mapping tool to be used in day-to-day ...
An active receiving antenna for borehole pulsed radar applications
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2002-12)
An efficient radiating strucllire was needed for borehole pulsed radar applications in the 10-100 MHz frequency band. Both resistively loaded and insulated wire antennas were investigated and an active antenna is proposed ...
Implementation of a Low-cost FM-CW Radar
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2008-03)
Modern technology is reducing the cost of electronic devices. The speed of these devices and their reliability is improving. They can be used to implement low cost systems without compromising performance. The design ...
The design of a monostatic, ultra wide band,VHF, pulse radar for detection of close-in targets
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2003-03)
Ground penetrating radar is currently proving itself as an invaluable tool for the prediction of geological structures in the mining environment. Borehole radar is a specific application of this technology, useful in the ...
The design of a hard rock permittivity and loss sensor to be integrated with borehole radar
(Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2004-03)
The use of ground penetrating radar, and especially borehole radar in underground mines, is becoming increasingly attractive. This is due to the improvements in the user friendliness of this system. Borehole radar is ...
