The present study was aimed at determining the effect of glucose, ethanol and sulphur dioxide on the growth and volatile phenol production by Brettanomyces bruxellensis in red wines using a response surface methodology approach. Sulphur dioxide proved to have a significant (p < 0.05) negative linear and quadratic effect on growth and 4-ethylphenol… (More)
This paper describes a simulation study made of a production system to determine the percentages certain types of defects must be reduced during production in order to reduce the manpower needed in reworking defective produced units.
The research on recognition of hand written scanned images of documents has witnessed several problems, some of which include recognition of almost similar characters. Therefore it received attention from the fields of image processing and pattern recognition. The system of pattern recognition comprises a two step process. The first stage is the feature… (More)
A fluorometric method developed for measuring low concentrations of ammonium in marine and freshwater ecosystems was adapted for the analysis of ammonia in ambient air. The modified method entails collection of samples on an acid-treated solid adsorbent followed by analysis using a fluorometer. Optimal results were obtained using a commercially available… (More)
