With more computational resources at the disposal of researchers, multi-physics simulations are becoming a reality.
The CSIR has developed a green economy project design and implementation framework for the agricultural sector.
The CSIR has developed a train energy optimisation model with the aim of incorporating it into a real-time driver assist programme.
The CSIR has developed a ‘movable type’ high-throughput microarray printing technology that can compress several individual RNA-interference (RNAi) experiments onto a single glass slide.
A CSIR developed lateral flow device that rapidly detects Escherichia coli (E. coli), has been successfully tested in the field at the Tshwane (Daspoort) Waste Water Treatment Works.
The CSIR, in collaboration with Cape Aerospace Technologies and Stellenbosch University, is working on a 200 N (Newton) micro gas turbine engine for the hobby market, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs
The CSIR has developed a robust system to rapidly detect deformation of land surfaces. This is particularly useful in mined areas, where early detection of deformation is pivotal.
The study considered the impacts of climate change and extreme weather events, which impact on coal supply to power stations.
