  • Christelis, L; Smit, AG (South African Chapter of the International Council on Systems Engineering (INCOSE SA), 2012-08)
    Most of us are familiar with the concept of Lean (a way to do more and more with less and less). The principles have been applied by the Japanese as part of the Toyota Production System from as early as the 1950's. ...
  • Rosman, Benjamin S (University of Edinburgh, 2014-06)
    Recent trends in robotics have seen more general purpose robots being deployed in unstructured environments for prolonged periods of time. Such robots are expected to adapt to different environmental conditions, and ...
  • Richardson, DM; Blanchard, R (Elsevier, 2011-03)
    One of the environmental concerns associated with producing biofuels from alien plants is the risk of these species becoming invasive. We explored whether insights from commercial forestry and agroforestry could inform ...
  • Krige, PD; Leong, B; Manganye, J (2001-12)
    The brief of this research was to identify the hazards associated with underground track bound transportation on Gold and Platinum mines, describe the learning that is necessary to recognize these hazards and then to ...
  • Van Huyssteen, GB; Davel, MH (Association for Computational Linguistics, 2010-06)
    In this research, the authors use machine learning techniques to provide solutions for descriptive linguists in the domain of language standardization. With regard to the personal name construction in Afrikaans, the authors ...
  • Barnard, E; Van der Walt, Christiaan M; Davel, M; Van Heerden, C; Senekal, FP; Naidoo, T (PRASA, 2009-11)
    Bayesian networks have shown themselves to be useful tools for the analysis and modelling of large data sets. However, their complete generality leads to computational and modelling complexities that have limited their ...
  • Alexandre, Kabamba B; Gray, ES; Mufhandu, Hazel T; McMahon, JB; Chakauya, E; O'Keefe, BR; Chikwamba, Rachel K; Morris, L (Elsevier, 2012-02)
    It is generally believed that during the sexual transmission of HIV-1, the glycan-specific DC-SIGN receptor binds the virus and mediates its transfer to CD4(+) cells. The lectins griffithsin (GRFT), cyanovirin-N (CV-N) and ...
  • Tuling, S; Dala, L; Toomer, C (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2013-12)
    A numerical and experimental investigation was performed to study the dominant flow structures in the lee side of a cruciform wing–body configuration at supersonic speeds in the + orientation. The wings or strakes are of ...
  • Lundt, M; De Korte, GJ (south African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy (SAIMM), 2010-11)
    Exxaro installed their first ultra fines treatment plant at Leeuwpan Coal mine. The plant is now fully operational and results already show that the plant has great potential. The plant was designed and installed by DRA. ...
  • Dlodlo, N (2011-04)
    Cloud computing is a sufficiently new research area. Since it is in its development stages, the information on the field is slowly being compiled by the researchers and practitioners from their experiences. Some of the ...
  • Smith, Andrew C (CSIR/UKZN, 2009-11)
    This paper describes an alternative programming system which can be constructed with minimal mechanical and electronic knowledge in an environment such as FabLab. This sytem, dubbed GameBlocks, makes use of tangible ...
  • Harrison, TD (Blackwell Wissenschafts-Verlag GMBH, 2001-02)
    Fish length + or - weight relationships, which describe mathematically the correlation between fish length and weight, are useful for converting length observations into weight estimates to provide some measure of biomass ...
  • Hugo, S; Naidoo, T; Swart, H; Potgieter, S; Van Rooyen, P; Land, K (Southern African Institute for Electrical Engineers, 2012-03)
    Optical microscopy is widely accepted as one of the gold standards in disease diagnosis. However, factors such as cost and the need for a trained eye limit the prevalence of such equipment, particularly in resource-limited ...
  • Hugo, S; Naidoo, T; Swart, H; Potgieter, S; Van Rooyen, P; Land, K (SAIEE, 2011-09)
    Microscopy is widely accepted as one of the gold standards in disease diagnosis. However, factors such as cost and the need for a trained eye limit the potential usefulness of such equipment, particularly in resource-limited ...
  • Ampofo-Anti, NL (Alive2green, 2012-02)
    This chapter examines the international state-of-the-art of environmental labelling of buildings and construction products; and discusses ways in which the emerging South African framework for environmental labelling could ...
  • Woodborne, S (Bureau for Scientific Publishers, 1999-04)
    This paper discusses an overview of research which was conducted for more than 25 years on dating and isotopes by the Quaternary Dating Research Unit (QUADRU) under the supervision of Dr John. Vogel in Pretoria (South Africa).
  • Paige-Green, P (2009-07)
    An investigation into the temporal variations of various pavement properties has been carried out in South Africa with regular monitoring over a period of one year. This involved the measurement of moisture content, in ...
  • Holtman, B (Pretoria News, 2007-11)
    Violent times do not call for violent measures but for pragmatic ones South Africans are in need of more compassion not hate.
