  • Matekenya, W; Mehlwana, MA (2006-05)
    Climate change is emerging as one of the most challenging problems confronting the humankind in the 21st century. Global warming is almost proportionally interrelated with the pace of industrialization over the past 200 ...
  • Dhlamini, MS; Mhlongo, GH; Swart, HC; Hillie, KT (Elsevier, 2011-04)
    Preparation of Er3+, Ho3+ and Tm3+ ions co-doped SiO2 nanoparticle phosphor powders by sol gelmethod is reported. The morphology and the particle size of the SiO2 hostmatrix were confirmed by field emission scanning electron ...
  • Moyo, D (2012-10)
    The hydroentanglement of fibres is achieved by the energy of the high-velocity waterjets. This method is highly energy intensive and costly, hence the attempt to study the energy transfer during the process. Generally, ...
  • Moyo, D; Anadjiwala, R (CSIR, 2010-09-01)
    Nonwoven fabrics are engineered assemblies of natural and man-made fibres bonded together mechanically, thermally, chemically or by a combination of these techniques. The nonwoven industry has a huge growth potential ...
  • Bogaers, Alfred; Botha, N (2016-10)
    The aim of this paper is to outline a preliminary investigation into an energy optimisation model with the aim of eventually being incorporated into a real-time driver assist program. A significant portion of the South ...
  • Mhlanga, MM; Nyandeni, TC; Olwal, TO; Ntlatlapa, N; Adigun, MO (SATNAC, 2009-08)
    The IEEE 802.11s working group has commenced activities, which would lead to the development of a standard for wireless mesh networks (WMNs). The draft of 802.11s introduces a new path selection metric called airtime link ...
