The subsequent contact surfaces are often softer drums to give a slightly bigger foot print with k a more shallow scratch, or platens to give huge surface area with much less grain penetration into the wood.
The error in the linear extrapolation results is rather negligible in comparison with those associated with the other methods as the experimental temperatures are used directly and the spatial measurements are extremely close to the contact surface.
Kalker's (1973, 1978) equation based on the dimensions of the contact surface (E--Young's modulus; a--major semi axes of contact ellipse; b--minor semi axes of contact ellipse):
Joined food-contact surfaces that are overlap-welded present a metal-to-metal contact surface and are liable to flex, crack the welds and present a hidden niche for microbial growth.
These best injection conditions are: injection time, mould temperature, melt temperature of the two components and most important the melt temperature at the contact surface between the two components.
in medical practices, phone booths or automated teller machines, the gold contact surface makes the electrical connection between the computer in the terminal and the chip.
The vocal folds had a normal color and mucosal wave, but there was bilateral fullness involving the medial aspect of the vibratory margins, beginning just below the upper edge of the contact surface of the vocal folds anteriorly and extending subglottically (figure 2).
The e-purse is a smart card with a gold contact surface chip.
Krall, President and CEO of PURE Bioscience, stated, "This testing by the University of Arkansas further validates the powerful efficacy and practicality of our SDC-based disinfectant and food contact surface sanitizer in a simulated use setting when compared with traditional toxic chemicals.
The newly developed ULTAGE Cylindrical Roller Bearing features larger rolling elements and a reviewed crowning shape to optimize the state of contact with the rolling surface for a shape that maintains an even contact surface pressure between the roller and the inner/outer rings, even if there is a high load applied or there is a large inclination on the shaft.
Information from their research can be used by restaurants and other food service organizations to minimize the cost of food contact surface cleaning while still meeting FDA mandates.
This side wall intersects the running surface at an edge with a closed geometric outline, this edge delimiting a contact surface via which the block makes contact with the roadway.
