    This paper presents the findings of a case study with building simulation using EnergyPlus dynamic thermal simulation software, in which wall insulation was varied together with cooling set-point temperature in a hot and ...
  • Inambao, F.L.; Mosweu, M. (University of Botswana, 2001)
    Diesel engines are used in heavy duty applications because of their high effeciency an reliability. However, oxides of nitrogen emissions remain a major concern. In diesel engines, fuel combustion is responsible for a major ...
  • Gandure, Jerekias; Ketlogetswe, Clever (David Publishing, http://www.davidpublishing.com/, January 31, 2014)
    Biodiesel derived from indigenous feed stocks such as Tylosema esculentum kernel oil is deemed a feasible alternative to petroleum diesel for the diesel engine. This paper presents results of investigation of performance ...
  • Uziak, J.; Loukanov, I. A. (CIGR Journal http://www.cigrjournal.org/, 2007)
    The ram-press technology for oil expression has received a lot of attention in many African countries during the last two decades. The technology is based on manually operated mechanical presses, which employ a slider-crank ...
  • Mothibi, J.; Kutua, S. (University of Botswana, www.ub.bw, 2001)
    One of the critical elements that determine the competitiveness of nations is the population density of, and quality of its engineers. This view has been corroborated by researchers such as Biluch (1989), Garelli et al ...

    One of the critical elements that determine the competitiveness of nations is the population density of, and quality of, its engineers. This view has been corroborated by researchers such as Bilich (1989), Garelli et al ...
  • Kiravu, C.S.A.M. (University of Botswana, 2000)
    Computer models are used to replicate the essential performance features of a physical element using convenient modeling and simulation programs. Within SPICE, an acronym for the Simulation Program with Integrated-Circuit ...
  • Matshediso, I.B. (University of Botswana, http://www.ub.bw, 2004)
    Although most SADC countries have or were in the process of liberalizing their legislation and fiscal regimes some member states seemed to levy exorbitant tax rates. SADC members’ states need to note that in designing the ...
  • Ketlogetswe, C.; Fiszdon, J.K.; Seabe, O.O. (Elsevier Science Ltd. www.elsevier.com/locate/rser, 2007)
    Import of a huge proportion of electrical energy from the Southern African Power Pool, and the geographical location and population distribution of Botswana stimulated the need to consider renewable energy as an alternative ...
