    Advantages of using Finite Element Method (FEM)in structural engineering practice are presented in this paper.A brief description of the method is given with the aim to illustrate the rich solid mathematical basis that ...
  • Gandure, J.; Parasuram, Kommula V. (University of Botswana, http//www.ub.bw, 2011)
    Operating without definite strategy for competitiveness is becoming a common practice in small to medium enterprises, especially those with manufacturing functions. This has seen many potential businesses failing to survive ...
  • Ngowi, A.B. (Taylor and Francis, http://www.pdfserve.informaworld.com/940578_73138570, 1997)
    This paper examines the strategy of employing a hybrid combination of indigenous and modern housing construction technologies. Using a Botswana village as a case study, this paper examines four traditional house types ...
  • Ngowi, A.B. (MCB University Press, http://www.emerald-library.com, 2000)
    Total quality management (TQM) as an integrated approach to management that represents a holistic management philosophy, rather than a series of techniques, is embedded with cultural values and assumptions that are ...
  • Ngowi, A.B. (MCB University Press; Emerald Publishing Group Ltd; http://www.mcbup.com/research_registers/quality.asp, 2000)
    Total quality management (TQM) as an integrated approach to management that represents a holistic management philosophy, rather than a series of techniques, is embedded with cultural values and assumptions that are consistent ...
  • Sahu, B.K.; Mathur, S.; Kemsley, B. (University of Botswana, 2004)
    The national road network continues to play a fundamental and catalytic role in the promotion of social and economic development of Botswana. However, a combination of adverse climatic and geological factors, such as ...
  • Ngowi, A.B. (Elsevier, 1997)
    The traditional developed earth as one of the most important construction materials by taking cognizance of the strength requirements, durability of resulting structures and the environmental concern in processing and using ...
  • Malumbela, G.; Moyo, P.; Alexander, M. (Elsevier http://www.elsevier.com/locate/conbuiltmat, 2011)
    Corrosion crack widths are often used by structural engineers in the field to predict level of steel corrosion as well as residual load-bearing capacities of corroding RC structures. This paper presents further work on ...
  • Ssegawa, J.K.; Samman, J.; Kgatlegang, J. (University of Botswana, 2001)
    Without cost information, project planning is difficult for clients just as pricing of tenders is difficult for construction firms. No agency or organization in Botswana has endeavoured to collect, compile and analyze ...
  • Muatjetjeja, B.; Chalique, C.M. (Elsevier http://www.sciencedirect.com/science?_ob=ArticleListURL&_method=list&_ArticleListID=1120288190&view=c&_acct=C000043160&_version=1&_urlVersion=0&_userid=778200&md5=2911144ac0b419d4936d24596384b313, 2009)
    This paper aims to classify a generalized coupled Lane–Emden system and to compute the Noether operators corresponding to a Lagrangian for a generalized coupled Lane–Emden system which occurs in the modelling of several ...
  • Ketlogetswe, C. (Bentham Open http://www.bentham-open.org, January 1, 2009)
    A number of photovoltaic pilot projects have been started in Botswana since 1990. The first photovoltaic project was Manyana PV project which started in 1992. The Japanese International Cooperation Agency (JICA) PV solar ...
  • Khalique, C.M.; Muatjetjeja, B. (Elsevier http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.amc.2009.01.008, 2009)
    We carry out the Lie group classification of the generalized Lane–Emden equation xu00 þ nu0 þ xHðuÞ ¼ 0, which has many applications in mathematical physics and astrophysics. We show that the equation admits a three-dimensional ...
  • Ganesan, C.T. (University of Botswana, 1999)
    Water scarcity in arid and semi-arid countries such as Botswana; call for judicious planning and economic use. In this connection many water saving components and appliances have been devised. One such system for example ...
  • Garg, A.K.; Joubert, R.J.O.; Pellissier, R. (College of Economic and Management Sciences, University of South Africa. http://www.unisa.ac.za/default.asp?Cmd=ViewContent&ContentID=16434, 2004)
    Most studies consider business performance to be a multidimensional construct. Four dimensions (namely, business growth, profitability, image and customer loyalty, and product service innovativeness) were hypothesised ...
  • Malumbela, G.; Alexander, M.; Moyo, P. (Elsevier http://www.elsevier.com/locate/conbuildmat, 2011)
    Cracking of the cover concrete due to steel corrosion is considered by many researchers to indicate the end-of-service life of corrosion-affected reinforced concrete (RC) structures. Numerous models have been developed ...
