    A 252m target-aligned research heliostat with closed-loop control, with a theoretical concentration of 80 suns, has been built at CSIR in South Africa. The heliostat has four degrees of freedom: Azimuth, Elevation, Rotation ...
  • Mokoena, Ntabiseng; Djonon Tsague, Hippolyte; Helberg, A (IEEE, 2016-12)
    The ability to recognise face images under random pose is a task that is done effortlessly by human beings. However, for a computer system, recognising face images under varying poses still remains an open research area. ...
  • Pandarum, R; Winnie, Y; Hunter, Lawrance (Taylor & Francis, 2011-09)
    Exploratory retail studies in South Africa indicate that plus-sized women experience problems and dissatisfaction with poorly fitting bras. The lack of 3-D anthropometric studies for the plus-size women's bra market initiated ...
  • Mutorwa, M; Salisu, S; Blatch, GL; Kenyon, C; Kaye, PT (Taylor & Francis, 2009-01)
    Access to a series of truncated ATP analogs, as potential anti-tuberculosis agents, has been explored via alkylation and acylation of 3-aminophenol, whereas chloroacetylation, using chloroacetyl chloride, and subsequent ...
  • Strauss, Hencharl J; Preussler, D; Esser, MJD; Koen, W; Jacobs, Cobus; Collett, OJP; Bollig, C (Optical Society of America, 2013-04)
    We report on a double-pass Ho:YLF slab amplifier which delivered 350 ns long single-frequency pulses of up to 330 mJ at 2064 nm, with a maximum M(sup2) of 1.5 at 50 Hz. It was end pumped with a diode-pumped Tm:YLF slab ...
  • Manzi, MSD; Durrheim, RJ; Hein, KAA; King, N (Society of Exploration Geophysicists, 2012-09)
    Inrushes of ground water and the ignition of flammable gases pose risks to workers in deep South African gold mines. Large volumes of water may be stored in solution cavities in dolomitic rocks that overlie the Black Reef ...
  • Lee, SA; Webb, SJ; Jones, MQW; Durrheim, RJ; Ganerød, M (2013-10)
    The Mesoproterozoic Pilanesberg Complex, South Africa, is the world’s largest alkaline intrusion. While surface field relationships suggest an inward dipping structure, it is unclear how these dips extend to depth. The 3D ...
  • Curle, Ulyate A (2017-07)
    The issue regarding globular grain shape and size has been a topic for semi-solid processing since the discovery of the technique. Semi-solid rheo-processing takes advantage of cooling a liquid metal alloy to the solid + ...
  • De Beer, Morris (2010-10)
    The CSIR’s proprietary Stress-in-Motion (SIM) measurements provide rational descriptions of 1D, 2D and 3D tyre/road pavement stresses for: Road pavement design testing and evaluation, as well as tyre design, testing and ...
  • Duvenhage, B; Delport, JP; Louis, A (2007-10)
    A 3D visual analysis tool has been developed to add value to the SANDF's growing Ground Based Air Defence (GBAD) System of Systems simulation capability. A time based XML interface between the simulation and analysis tool, ...
  • Oxtoby, Oliver F; Malan, AG (2011-01)
    The authors describe the development of a 3D parallel Fluid–Structure–Interaction (FSI) solver and its application to benchmark problems. Fluid and solid domains are discretised using and edge-based finite-volume scheme ...

  • Edwards, A (Southern African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, 2009-09)
    The Occupational Exposure Limit (OEL) for noise is legislated to be 85 dBA. However, owing to the energy of different frequencies the effect on the ear by sounds of different frequencies is known to vary. Also, there is ...
  • Viljoen, N (2012-05)
    The global economic landscape is shifting with increased focus on emerging markets that have been more resilient than their counterparts in developed countries. Countries that never featured as consumer markets in the past ...
  • Mandiwana, Vusani; Kalombo, Lonji; Grobler, A; Zeevaart, JR (Elsevier, 2018-11)
    The aim of this study was to establish the in vivo uptake and tissue distribution of (sup)99mTc-MDP-encapsulated Solid Lipid Nanoparticles (SLNs) post administration. Radioactive (sup)99mTc-MDP encapsulated into SLNs was ...
