Design of a paper slitting and rewinding machine for a developing country, Zimbabwe
This paper is on the design of a paper slitting and rewinding machine for a developing economy which targets small to medium enterprises (SMEs). The current problem is the high cost of such machines on the market hence ...
Finite element analysis of ROM silo subjected to 5000 tons monotonic loads at an anonymous mine in Zimbabwe
(International Institute of Engineers, 2014-07)
This paper introduces finite element analysis of Run off Mine (ROM) silo subjected to dynamic loading. The proposed procedure is based on the use of theoretical equations to come up with pressure and forces1 exerted by ...
Quality delivery service as a strategy: Profile and perspectives for excellence achievement within OPRAG
The use of human experiments in operations management is still fairly novel despite a small stream of publications (Bendoly, Donohue and Schultz, 2005). Hence, this study was conducted with the ultimate interest of advancing ...
Machinery maintenance yesterday, today and tomorrow in the manufacturing sector
(International Association of Engineers (IAENG), 2015-07)
Maintenance is what is done in machinery to prevent failure or breakdown. In ancient times no proper planning was carried out to do maintenance with the idea behind being simple machines and easy to control. As time ...
Design of an automatic tyre pressure inflation system for small vehicles
The advent of the tyre/automotive industry brought to a halt the savage days of long journeying by foot and suddenly introduced quick inter-city visits whilst the traveler is seated. In a bid to improve and perfect this ...
Bagasse Energy Cogeneration in Zimbabwe: The Technology, Possible Improvements and Setting the Right Environment
Zimbabwe has suffered electrical power shortages resulting in electrical energy imports rising to between 30% and 50% of total energy needs. Electricity generation capacity has stagnated at around 2000 Megawatts (MW) since ...
Analysis of a gear train using finite element modelling
(Industrial Engineering and Operations Management Society (IEOM Society), 2015-09)
Here the theoretical maximum contact stress is calculated by Hertz equation. Also the finite element analysis of spur gear is done to determine the maximum contact stress by ANSYS 14.5. It was found that the results from ...

(African Energy Policy Research Network, 2001-10)
Design of a sawdust pelleting machine
(IEOM Society International, 2017-04-11)
This paper seeks to carry out the design of a pelleting machine with a capacity of 900kg per hour for the Company X. Apparently the boilers at the plant are using wood chips, a by-product from the milling operations as ...
Green manufacturing/Cleaner Production in Zimbabwe: Learning from Japanese Experiences
This paper discusses environmental issues in Africa and deals with the situation in Zimbabwe in more detail. Most people in Sub Saharan Africa live in the rural areas and make a living from agriculture and forest resources. ...
