Fracture properties of fibre and nano reinforced composite structures
(2007)Interlaminar cracking or delamination is an inherent disadvantage of composite materials. In this study the fracture properties of nano and fibre-reinforced polypropylene and epoxy composite structures are examined. These ...
Diesel engine performance modelling using neural networks
The aim of this study is to develop, using neural networks, a model to aid the performance monitoring of operational diesel engines in industrial settings. Feed-forward and modular neural network-based models are created ...
Controller performance assessment of servomechanisms for nonlinear process control systems
Splitting vacancy voids in the grain boundary region by a post-cascade shock wave
Correlation between elastic and electric properties for cyclically loaded metals
Hybrid motion detection system using DSP and ANN ensembles
Effect of nanoclay in HDPE–glass fiber composites on processing, structure, and properties
The synthesis, structure and properties of polypropylene nanocomposites
Polymer nanocomposites may be defined as structures that are formed by infusing layered-silicate clay into a thermosetting orthermoplastic polymer matrix. The nanocomposites are normally particle-filled polymers for ...
Utilisation of Maqalika Reservoir as a source of potable water for Maseru city in Lesotho
Lesotho is a land locked country, entirely surrounded by the Republic of South Africa. Maseru is the capital of Lesotho and the country’s main centre for commerce and industry. The study area is located on the North-Eastern ...
