Die Gap Opening. Die gap openings of 4 and 6 mm were also set on the dies in Table 3.
The numerical prediction of the area swell for the die IV at different die gap openings is presented in Fig.
where [D.sub.parison] and [D.sub.die] are the parison and die diameters, [h.sub.parison] is the parison thickness, and [h.sub.die] is the die gap opening. The final part thickness distribution is directly related to both the diameter and the thickness swell.
A die gap opening of 2 mm was used for all these die geometries.
Die Gap Opening. These series of experiments demonstrated that the dies III and IV were the most sensitive to the changes in the die gap opening in terms of the resulting parison swell while the die II was found to be the least sensitive.
The application processes will include brush, roll velocity and gap openings, and spray applications with different nozzle geometries.
Sanford (1990) suggested that gap size, decomposition of fallen trees, and the pregap root growth rates should be considered to determine fine root growth patterns following the formation of light gap openings. However, one aspect that has received relatively less attention is the dynamics of plant litter decomposition following gap formation by treefall.
These ideas are supported by Sanford's study on fine-root growth dynamics under light gap openings in an Amazon rain forest (1990).
