Seven prestressed strands retrofitted short columns and 1 control columns were prepared, investigated the influence of axial compression ratio, spacing of steel strands and prestress level on the seismic performance of short RC columns.
The CFST members confined by CFRP fabrics sustained higher ultimate load and larger axial deformation compared to control column. And also, it was noticed that columns confined with three layers of CFRP have more ability to control the axial deformation compared to columns confined by one and two layers of CFRP.
- Control column (CSB1) showed less deformability as compared to other columns.
The control column reached its maximum respiration rates (l.61 [micro]mol C[O.sub.2]-C/([m.sup.2].s)) at days 12 and 22, and reached its minimum efflux rates (0.0 [micro]mol C[O.sub.2]-C/([m.sup.2] s)) at days 3, 25, and 28 (Fig.
The ANG is a large part of why the control column actuated brake program met its goals for cost, schedule, and performance throughout my tenure with the program.
Balance weights on the opposite side of the pivot reduce the pilot's control column forces and eliminate flutter by changing the center of mass.
With the large power addition and the rapid roll to wings level, I did not program enough nose-down input with the control column. The nose of the aircraft pitched up.
A captain allowed flight attendants and a female ground staff member to touch the aircraft control column of a plane operated by a subsidiary of All Nippon Airways Co.
The winged pogo stick finally stopped at the end of the runway, when the pilot noticed he had "no elevator control." Oddly enough, the nose gear never collapsed, but the pilot-induced turbulence on the runway was so severe that it not only got the prop and the firewall but bent the forward cabin floor up, stuck the elevator full down and jammed the control column. In retrospect, we'll bet the passenger preferred turbulence of the airborne kind after all.
Euroflow's ultrasound technology is used to monitor and control column packing, which Pall commercialized for process chromatography.
After tightening the bracket and the stab-trim chain under the center control column, the rudder-handle movement was reduced to a minute amount.
