Finite element and durability modelling of roller shells and shafts : final report JCU6S
The technology that has been adopted by the Australian raw sugar industry for roller shells and shafts has evolved over the past 40 years. Apart from Crawford's theoretical calculations on shell design and Cullen's factory ...
Crack detection and durability assessment of low speed sugar mill gears : final report JCU2S
Heavy low speed gearing used by the Australian Sugar Industry is manufactured according to code specifications. These gears fail in several ways with the most common failure modes being the gradual surface fatigue of ...
Intelligent adaptive control in an on-line cane transport scheduler : final report UCQ2S
The vast majority of the Australian sugar crop is transported from the field to the sugar mill by privately owned cane railways. The total length of the permanent way exceeds 3000 km and approximately 500 x 106 tonne ...
Hygroscopic water in sugarcane : final report 114
At the 1989 Workshop on Cane Analysis conducted by the Sugar Research Council it emerged that the best technical method of cane analysis for the Australian industry was the direct cane analysis method (DCA) employing ...
Towards functional specifications of a sampling scheme for commercial sampling of prepared cane : final report V89/17
Payment by Australian sugar mills to sugar can growers has for many years been based on samples of "first expressed juice" - the juice squeezed from prepared cane at the number one mill. This basis for payment is ...
Determination of fracture properties of cast steels : final report JCU9S
Technology currently exists to estimate the structural durability of cracked sugar mill gears and mill roller shafts. Both SRDC projects JCU2S (Crack detection and durability assessment of low speed gears) and JCU6S (finite ...
Hardening of raw sugar : SRDC final report CSR8S
Australia has a long term contract to supply the Soviet Union with raw sugar. While the contract seeks to avoid delivery in the coldest months, the long transport from Black Sea ports and possible delays can lead to ...
High grade sugar recovery using a continuous centrifuge : final report BSC25
(Bundaberg Sugar company Limited, 1990)
This project report describes the conversion of an existing batch high grade centrifuge to a continuous unit (termed a hybrid fugal) and an assessment of its performance characteristics.
Monitoring cane at the mill to improve nitrogen management on the farm, a pilot study : final report CSC21A
The project examined variation in amino-N in cane supply at the Macknade Mill during the 1996 crushing season. This variation was related to factors such as crop class, variety, time of harvest, ccs, and farm supplying the ...
Developing a framework for advancing road transportation of sugarcane : SRDC final report SD98013
An objective of this project was to initiate a research program for the road transportation of sugarcane. Future research projects will be undertaken with the knowledge and cooperation of key parties and therefore have ...
