• The time-dependent cracking behaviour of strain hardening cement-based composite 

      Adendorff, Christo Johan (Stellenbosch: University of Stellenbosch, 2009-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Strain Hardening Cement-based Composite (SHCC) is part of the High Performance Fibre Reinforced Cement-based Composite (HPFRCC) family and is a relative new concrete composite. This Fibre Reinforced ...
    • Sediment yield prediction based on analytical methods and mathematical modelling 

      Msadala, V. P. (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2009-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: A study of the state of reservoir sedimentation in South Africa based on reservoir sediment deposit data, has shown that a considerable number of reservoirs have serious sedimentation problems. The ...
    • Rocking shear wall foundations in regions of moderate seismicity 

      Van der Merwe, Johann Eduard (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2009-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: In regions of moderate seismicity it has been shown that a suitable structural system is created when designing the shear wall with a plastic hinge zone at the lower part of the wall, with the shear ...
    • The cross-shore distribution of grain size in the longshore transport zone 

      Soltau, Christoph (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2009-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Calculation of longshore sediment transport rates is a typical part of coastal engineering work. One of the important inputs to such calculations is the sediment grain size. A single, representative ...
