R&D Journal

The Journal contains a selection of technical papers submitted on varied topics relating to mechanical engineering.

The R&D Journal is a peer reviewed engineering science journal, the first issue of which was published during 1985. The Journal is presently fully accredited as a subsidised research journal with the South African State Department of Higher Education. Click here to read more and access the various publications issued to date.

The Journal is available ‘open access’ in electronic format only, from 2009 onwards, with recent and earlier papers accessible on the R&D Journal pages on this site as free downloable files in PDF format. The journal covers the full spectrum of South African mechanical engineering research, both academic and industrial and is supported by South African leading academics and has one of its aims to promote such research and its proponents in a constructive manner. 

The decision to publish the R&D Journal electronically is aimed at broadening the exposure of South African mechanical engineering research. It is envisaged that free access to the journal will increase readership, both locally and internationally. All electronic editions from Volume 25 onwards (2009 issue) will remain available on the website for future reference.

We hope that you will continue to read and enjoy the Institution’s publications in the way that suits you best.
