  • Patanaik, A; Anandjiwala, RD (SACAM 2008, 2008-03)
    This paper presents the results from a study on the water permeability behaviour of nonwovens produced from the hemp fibres. Three different types of needle-punched nonwovens are produced by varying the feed rate of fibres ...
  • Loveday, PW; Long, CS; Forbes, A; Land, K (South African Conference on Computational and Applied Mechanics, 2008-03)
    An intra-cavity adaptive mirror is required to compensate for time-dependent phase aberrations to the laser beam, such as those caused by thermal lensing. A piezoelectric unimorph design can provide a small, low-cost ...
  • Cannoo, BR; Gledhill, Irvy MA; Cooper, Antony K; Greben, JM (South African Conference on Computational and Applied Mechanics SACAM08, 2008-03)
    The protection of coastal structures is important to South Africa. The dynamics of breakwaters is a topic that is becoming amenable to numerical study, in terms of the motion of multiple interlocking structures under wave ...
  • Shatalov, M; Fedetov, I; Tenkam, HMD (South African Conference on Applied Mechanics (SACAM) 2008, 2008-03)
    Modern theories of one-dimensional bar vibrations account for lateral effects, which are substantial in the case of relatively thick bars. For example, in the Rayleigh-Love and Rayleigh-Bishop models the lateral displacements ...
