  • Bischof-Niemz, T (CSIR, 2015-02)
    South Africa’s power system is currently under severe constraints, with power generators meant to be the “barely-ever-used” safety net for the system (diesel-fired gas turbines) running at > 15% average annual load factor, ...
  • Bischof-Niemz, ST (CSIR, 2015-10)
    South Africa’s power system is currently under severe constraints with load shedding that occurred during 82 days in the first half of 2015. The Department of Energy is procuring new generation capacity and has already ...
  • Herling, MC; Cupido, CF; O'Farrell, PJ; Du Plessis, L (Wiley-Blackwell, 2009-11)
    Nonsustainable ostrich farming practices have degraded large areas of the Little Karoo, a semiarid region in South Africa. The Little Karoo lies within the Succulent Karoo biome, a recognized biodiversity hotspot. A financial ...
  • Reyers, B; Polasky, S; Tallis, H; Mooney, HA; Larigauderie, A (American Institute of Biological Sciences, 2012-05)
    Recently, some members of the conservation community have used ecosystem services as a strategy to conserve biodiversity. Others in the community have criticized this strategy as a distraction from the mission of biodiversity ...
  • Nortje, R; Britz, K; Meyer, T (2009-12)
    Module extraction plays an important role in the reuse of ontologies as well as in the simplification and optimization of some reasoning tasks such as finding justifications for entailments. In this paper the authors focus ...
  • Venter, CP (CSIR, 2015-10)
    This presentation discusses how laboratory experiments and results regarding technology solutions to secure South African borders are linked to real life security solutions.
  • Godfrey, Linda K (CSIR, 2015-10)
    Moving the South African waste sector away from landfilling provides recognised social, environmental and economic opportunities for the country. This paper presents some of the key findings emerging from research undertaken ...
  • De Korte, GJ (SME, 2012-10)
    Dense medium cyclones have been used for many years in a number of countries to beneficiate fine coal. The use of cyclones in this application is, however, not widespread and at present, the process is in use only in South ...
  • Sililo, OTN; Tellam, JH (Ground Water Publishing Co, 2000-11)
    Unstable unsaturated zone flow (fingering) is a potentially important process in recharge, pollution, and surface water/ground water body interactions. Extending previous workers ' studies on homogeneous systems, sand tank ...
  • Dorasamy, K; Webb, L; Tapamo, J; Khanyile, NP (IEEE Xplore, 2015-07)
    The use of directional patterns has recently received more attention in fingerprint classification. It provides a global representation of a fingerprint, by dividing it into homogeneous orientation partitions. With this ...
  • Shabalala, MB; Moabalobelo, T; Van der Merwe, T (ICCWS, 2015-03)
    As cybercrime is on the rise, individuals would like to rest assured that their authentication information cannot be stolen, and then used to gain access to their privileged information. Smart cards can and have played a ...
  • Moolla, Y; Singh, A; Saith, E; Akhoury, S (Springer, 2015-12)
    Fingerprint recognition is an important security technique with a steadily growing usage for the identification and verification of individuals. However, current fingerprint acquisition systems have certain disadvantages, ...
  • Msiza, IS; Leke-Betechuoh, B; Nelwamondo, FV; Msimang, N (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (IEEE), 2009-10)
    The problem of Automatic Fingerprint Pattern Classification (AFPC) has been studied by many fingerprint biometric practitioners. It is an important concept because, in instances where a relatively large database is being ...
  • Mngenge, NA; Nelufule, NN; Nelwamondo, FV; Msimang, M (IEEE Xplore, 2012-11)
    Automatic Fingerprint Recognition Systems (AFRSs) rely on minutiae position and orientation within the fingerprint image for matching. Minutiae information is highly accurate provided that the fingerprint image matched is ...
  • Molale, P; Twala, B; Seeletse, S (South African Statistical Association for 2011, 2011-11)
    In this study, the application of classifiers to problems in fingerprint prediction is investigated. Six supervised learning and two statistical fingerprint classification methods (classifiers) are considered: linear ...
  • Msiza, IS; Leke-Betechuoh, B; Malumedzha, T (IEEE, 2011-02)
    Fingerprint re-alignment is an important aspect in the subject of fingerprint biometrics because a fingerprint that has been rotated, voluntarily or involuntarily, can have negative impact on the functionality of an automated ...
  • Msiza, IS; Mathekga, ME; Nelwamondo, FV; Marwala, T (ICIC International, 2011-09)
    Fingerprint image segmentation plays an important role in any fingerprint image analysis implementation and it should, ideally, be executed during the initial stages of a fingerprint manipulation process. After careful ...
  • Marwala, T; Sibisi, S (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2005-01)
    Finite element (FE) models are widely used to predict the dynamic characteristics of aerospace structures. These models often give results that differ from measured results and therefore need to be updated to match measured ...
  • Botha, N; Kok, S; Inglis, HM (SAAM, 2012-12)
    Corneal biomechanical properties are an important element in the study of corneal biomechanics. There are currently two techniques to obtain these properties; an inflation test and the strip extensiometry test. As the ...
  • Mc Dougall, I (2007)
    Finite element models were generated of two submerged arc furnaces of different geometries. A 48MW circular furnace and a 68MW 6-in-line rectangular furnace were studied. The electrodes, raw material, slag and molten metal ...
