University of Cape Town, CERECAM Cerecam aims to provide a point of interaction at UCT for research and applications in mechanics by promoting and supporting fundamental research, applied research, and industrial interaction in computational and applied mechanics and associated disciplines.
University of Pretoria, Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering
University of Pretoria, Chemical Engineering The Department of Chemical Engineering at UP has several groups which are interested in modelling physical systems. Here are a few examples: The Process Modelling and Control group focuses on dynamic models which can be used to support or understand control systems. The Carbon Chair models systems which use carbon materials. Graphite and composite systems have been modelled sucessfully and related to real world results. The Fluorine Chair has deep investment in quantum theoretic modelling of fluorine chemicals. Many of these models use free/open source software.
