Rolf Proske, Joanne Arendse, Siviwe Bangani, Phillipa Campbell, Zulaiga Davids, Edene Du Toit, Lynn Kleinveldt, Thundeza Mafungwa & Veliswa Tshetsha
Poster presented at the 34th Annual IATUL Conference in Cape Town International Convention Centre. Cape Peninsula University of Technology (CPUT) has during the last decade moved from being a vocational institution to a fully-fledged university, and has consequently also moved to strengthen its research profile. In publication counts of South African institutions drawn from Web of Science, in the periods 1990-1994 and 2004-2008, CPUT, while not recorded in the earlier statistics, ranked 39th out of...

Types of metrics and statistics from library systems

Veliswa Tshetsha
This data contain types of metrics and statistics from library digital systems. This determines if researchers are making use of the library systems. Libraries can use these metrics and statistics to motivate for continuous subscriptions. It cost libraries to subscribe to these digital platforms therefore usage should bring value in research and education.

Collaboration on LibGuides in public universities in South Africa

Siviwe Bangani & Veliswa Tshetsha
Purpose
This paper uses co-ownership as a proxy for determining the extent of collaboration on LibGuides in public universities in South Africa.Design/methodology/approachThis is a quantitative study that uses webometrics techniques to establish collaboration on LibGuides among librarians in public universities in South Africa. The LibGuide pages of all public universities in the country are visited. Co-ownership of those LibGuides is established by going through the list of co-owners usually situated on the right-hand side menu bar....

Cardiovascular effects of edible oils: a comparison between four popular edible oils

D. Bester, A. J. Esterhuyse, E. J. Truter & J. Van Rooyen
Edible oils form an essential part of the modern diet. These oils play a role as an energy source, and provide the diet with many beneficial micronutrients. Although a popular conception may be that fat should be avoided, certain edible oils as a dietary supplement may play an important role in the improvement of cardiovascular health. CVD has become one of the leading causes of death worldwide. Dietary supplementation with different oils may have beneficial...

Figures of the numerical analysis of the hydrodynamic mixing characteristics of a rectangular versus a cylindrical mixing crystallizer tank for a membrane distillation apparatus using Ansys Fluent CFD implementation of the Eulerian granular multiphase model

Everhardus Johannes Smith, Graeme John Oliver & Jeeten Nathoo
The CFD cross-sections from the simulations were extracted from two positions. The CFD data needed for the comparison to the experiment were taken at the outer wall of the model to match the perspective of the video. The second position used in the CFD comparison of a rectangular versus a cylindrical tank were at the center of the impeller where the dynamics were most clear. The zero point was at the center of the 3D...

Figures of experiments conducted to support the numerical analysis of the hydrodynamic mixing characteristics of a rectangular versus a cylindrical mixing crystallizer tank for a membrane distillation apparatus

Everhardus Johannes Smith, Graeme John Oliver & Jeeten Nathoo
Clear polycarbonate replicas of the rectangular tanks were manufactured to visually observe the mixing process in the tanks. Silica particles were used to represent the calcium carbonate crystals in the experiment. The data gathered from these experiments showed that the tanks should be operated between 600 to 750 rpm.
The figure names contain the speed of mixing in RPM either 600 or 750 and the time elapsed from the start of agitation. The .1 represents a...

The Deployment and Impact of LibGuides at Public Universities in South Africa

Siviwe Bangani & Veliswa Tshetsha
Webometrics techniques were used to establish the extent of deployment and impact of LibGuides at public universities in South Africa using their content, usage, and views. There are 1,166 LibGuides hosted by 16 universities, and published by 299 owners in South Africa giving the country a 0.22% of the world's share of LibGuides, and a 0.22% share of the world's LibGuides owners. Each LibGuide owner in the country owns almost four LibGuides. Close to 70%...

Videos of experiments conducted to support the numerical analysis of the hydrodynamic mixing characteristics of a rectangular versus a cylindrical mixing crystallizer tank for a membrane distillation apparatus

Everhardus Johannes Smith, Graeme John Oliver & Jeeten Nathoo
The development of the suspension of the silica particles inside the clear polycarbonate mixing tanks was captured on video. Software was used to extract data at one second intervals from the experimental videos. Autodesk AutoCAD was used to create 1:1 scale models of the captured images. The images were superimposed to accurately measure and compare the CFD imaged to the experimental cloud height. The file names contain a RPM value that represents the rotational velocity...
