    • Investigation into backup bearing life using delevitation severity indicators 

      Gouws, Jacob Marthinus (North-West University (South Africa) , Potchefstroom Campus, 2016)
      Active magnetic bearings (AMBs) are inherently flawed in terms of possible failure from either mechanical, electronic or software components. Component failure could induce a rotor delevitation event (RDE) during operation ...
    • Procedure for conveyer-belt dryer sizing using dehydration-rate curves 

      Lombard, Benjamin (North-West University, Potchefstroom Campus, 2015)
