Numerical simulation of pressure response in partially completed oil wells.
This work is concerned with the application of finite difference simulation to modelling the pressure response in partially penetrating oil wells. This has relevance to the oil and hydrology industries where pressure ...
The development and testing of computer-aided teaching tools - addressing the conceptual and practical difficulties experienced by first year physics students.
There has been a great deal of research, both locally and abroad, conducted on the learning practices of students at school and at tertiary levels. In an attempt at improving the status of education, some educators have ...
Applications of light scattering and refraction by atmospheric gases.
LIDAR, an acronym for LIght Detection And Ranging, is a system used for studying the scattering of laser light incident on a parcel of air. This thesis investigates the atmosphere above the Durban region using two ...
Mossbauer spectroscopy and x-ray diffraction study of (Cd, Zn) substituted mixed ferrites.
The study of magnetic properties and structures of Zn and Cd substituted mixed ferrites has been carried out using Mossbauer spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction on powdered samples at about 300 K. Two series of mixed ...
An experimental investigation of the weak-link problem in granular high-Tc superconductors.
Grain boundary weak-link behaviour in superconductors is investigated using a critical state model (CSM), which has been specifically formulated for the applied field range o ~ Ha ~ Hc1g , where Hclg is the intra-granular ...
