    • Automatic discovery of subword units and pronunciations for automatic speech recognition using TIMIT 

      Goussard, George; Niesler, Thomas (PRASA, 2010-11)
      We address the automatic generation of acoustic subword units and an associated pronunciation dictionary for speech recognition. The speech audio is first segmented into phoneme-like units by detecting points at which ...

    • Distributed binary decision diagrams 

      Fasan, Mary Oluwasola (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Binary Decision Diagrams (BDDs) are data structures that have been used to solve various problems in different aspects of computer aided design and formal verification. The large memory and time ...

    • GPU acceleration of matrix-based methods in computational electromagnetics 

      Lezar, Evan (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2011-03)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This work considers the acceleration of matrix-based computational electromagnetic (CEM) techniques using graphics processing units (GPUs). These massively parallel processors have gained much support ...

    • A MEMS based valveless micropump for biomedical applications 

      Van der Merwe, Schalk Willem (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-03)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The valveless micropump holds great potential for the biomedical community in applications such as drug delivery systems, blood glucose monitoring and many others. It is also a critical component in ...

    • Modelling subject-specific patellofemoral joint dynamics 

      Muller, Jacobus Hendrik (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: A methodology to facilitate analysis of dynamic subject-specific patellofemoral function is presented. An enhanced understanding of patellofemoral biomechanics will enable orthopaedic surgeons to identify ...
