The effect of thermal drying on the mechanical strength of South African coal
(SAIMM (The South African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy), 2008)
The development of a flexible rotor active magnetic bearing system
A design process comprising aspects of modelling and analysis is developed, implemented and verified for a flexible rotor active magnetic bearing system. The system is specified to experience the first three critical ...
Linear model of a closed three-shaft Brayton cycle
A linear model of a closed three-shaft Brayton cycle at normal power operation is developed. The model is intended to give an understanding of the dominant dynamic behaviour in a nuclear power system ...
The global galerkin finite element method as applied to the 1d beam equation: a systems approach
The paper focuses on the finite element solution of the fourth-order differential for an EulerBernoulli beam. In this approach the point point loads and concentrated moments are treated in a natural way as part of the ...
Developing esco procedures for large telecommunication facilities using novel simulation techniques
(Energy Research Centre, University of Cape Town, 2008)
Peak electricity demand in South Africa will exceed the available operational generation capacity in 2007. The state utility, Eskom, is addressing this challenge, inter alia, with the implementation of a national Demand-side ...
Optimisation of a storage facility used to effect power control in the PBMR power cycle
This article presents the optimization of a gas storage facility used to effect power control in South Africa's PBMR power cycle. It was shown in the article, a multitank storage facility to affect power control in the ...
A current analysis and correction system for vibration forces on the rotor of a rotating active magnetic bearing system
In this paper, an on-line detection, correction and identification system for vibration forces on the rotor of a rotating active magnetic bearing is proposed. The on-line detection system performs current analysis by ...
The continuous depolymerization of filled polytetrafluoroethylene with a continuous process
A new method for beneficiating unfilled as well as filled polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) waste has been developed. This process does not use any carrier gas while forming the depolymerization products. It enables polymer ...
