  1. Learner mobility and learning and teaching : a case study at a secondary school in Pretoria
    Krishnan, Komala, 2021-01-18T06:19:11Z
    The aim of this study was to determine the impact that learner mobility has on teaching and learning. Although many factors affect teaching and learning, these factors need to be looked at in the context of the present situation. In South Africa, parents have freedom of choice to quality schools for ...
  2. An empirical analysis of bank performance and regulatory requirements in South Africa
    Khoza, Mpucuko Armstrong Ezekiel, 2021-01-18T06:06:22Z
    This study examined the nexus between bank performance and regulatory requirements in South Africa. The panel regression approach was used, which applied panel data from 12 banks that were registered in terms of the Bank Act 94 of 1990 over the period 2009 to 2019. A quantitative research approach w ...
  3. Performance of microstructural finite element models in predicting the effective modulus of trabecular bone
    Lawrence, Claire, 2021-01-18T09:33:44Z, Faculty of Engineering and the Built Environment
    Trabecular bone is made up of an irregular, interconnecting framework of rod- and plate-like struts [1], therefore the mechanical properties of the bone may only be determined through experimental testing or detailed Finite Element modelling. Experimental testing requires a sample to be removed from ...
  4. Desulfurization of waste tire pyrolytic oil (TPO) using adsorption and oxidation techniques
    Mello, Moshe, 2021-01-17T22:09:04Z

  5. The rise of populism within the Economic Freedom Fighters in South Africa: a theoretical case study of anti-establishment, economic inequalities and cultural backlash
    Carstens, Joshua, 2021-01-15T09:53:14Z, University of Cape Town
    Populism is on the rise in many developed and developing countries and uprooting established party systems. In South Africa, research has shown that the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) can be seen as our turn towards populism, but what fuels the rise of the party? This dissertation argues that an an ...
  6. Motivation and behaviour change in Parkrun participants in Western Cape, South Africa
    Chivunze, Edgar, 2021-01-15T09:53:14Z, University of Cape Town
    Background: Participation in physical activity is a cost effective way to reduce the risks of over 25 chronic diseases. Despite the many dangers of physical inactivity, more than a quarter of the South African population remains inactive. One initiative aimed at increasing engagement in physical act ...
  7. A deep learning algorithm for contour detection in synthetic 2D biplanar X-ray images of the scapula: towards improved 3D reconstruction of the scapula
    Namayega, Catherine, 2021-01-15T09:53:14Z, University of Cape Town
    Three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction from X-ray images using statistical shape models (SSM) provides a cost-effective way of increasing the diagnostic utility of two-dimensional (2D) X-ray images, especially in low-resource settings. The landmark-constrained model fitting approach is one way to obt ...
  8. Unbearing burden of the refugee crisis on developing countries: Is the global compact on refugees the solution?
    Rimber, Kimberly Wangeci, 2021-01-15T09:53:15Z, University of Cape Town
    This research analyses the Global Compact on Refugees("GCR"), adopted in 2018 by the United Nations General Assembly. It aims to discuss whether the document, a non-legal document offers durable solutions to developing countries who host more than 80% of the world´s refugees and asylum seekers popul ...
  9. The use of port state measures as a tool of combating illegal unreported unregulated fishing: Is there a need for expansion of coastal state jurisdiction?
    Ogega, Peris B, 2021-01-15T09:53:15Z, University of Cape Town
    This dissertation examines the scope and limitations of port state jurisdiction with respect to the enforcement of international conservation and management measures established under international and national instruments. The current fisheries regulatory regimes rely primarily on flag states to en ...
  10. In vitro modelling of cellular haemozoin and inhibition by β-haematin inhibitors and their derivatives
    Openshaw, Roxanne, 2021-01-15T09:53:37Z, University of Cape Town
    The discovery of new β-haematin inhibitors has become one focus for researches in response to the resistance of P. falciparum malaria parasites that emerged towards well-known antimalarials. While hundreds of new β-haematin inhibitors have been discovered using detergent mediated high-throughput scr ...
