Depending on the selected technology for installing a suspension structure (applying or omitting the strain of the bearing component), the cross-sectional area of the bearing component can be calculated thus selecting the initial geometric length of the component so that in each case sag should not exceed the condition of the allowable gradient of the current part and should meet requirements for the safety and appropriateness of the limit state.
Cross-sectional blood lipid levels: The cross-sectional TG, HDL-C, ApoAI, ApoB, ApoE and Lpa levels were similar in the two groups (p>0.05).
Cross-sectional surveys also are relatively inexpensive compared to experimental or other types of research.
Using a coagulation bath of 45-49% solvent and coagulation bath temperatures ranging from 10 to 70[degrees]C, the fiber cross-sectional shape is best described as nonuniform or unsymmetrical at coagulation bath temperatures of 10[degrees]C, oval at 45[degrees]C, and nearly circular at 70[degrees]C.
The cross-sectional area of a via should have at least the same cross-sectional area as the conductor or be larger than the conductor coming into it.
At that location, the cross-sectional area decreases and the velocity of the flow increases.
Measurements of muscle cross-sectional area were obtained using a 5 cm-wide linear-array transducer (15 MHz, HFL50x, SonoSite; Bothell, Washington) and a 6 cm-wide curved-array transducer (5 MHz, C60x, SonoSite).
In addition to the positive results in cross-sectional studies linking rice consumption with healthier diets, a human clinical trial found that having white or brown rice at a meal increased satiety and feelings of fullness more than a calorically equivalent glucose solution control.4 Considering the cross-sectional and clinical findings, both enriched white rice and whole grain brown rice should be recommended as part of a healthy diet.
We ended the last part of this article with a partial formula that consisted of kinetic energy divided by the cross-sectional area of the expanded bullet to reflect the bullet's potential as inhibited by terminal drag.
To address this problem, two different approaches are followed in the literature on testing the hysteresis hypothesis: first, the use of unit-root testing techniques that allow for the presence of structural breaks, such as the tests of Zivot and Andrews (1992) and Lee and Strazicich (2003) and, second, the application of panel unit root tests that allow for cross-sectional correlation in the error terms and help to avoid severe size distortions (O'Connell 1999; Leon-Ledesma 2002; Christopoulos and Leon-Ledesma 2007; Liu et al.
