The electrical resistivity percolation behavior was investigated as a function of conductive filler content for the ternary polymer blends and single phase systems.
According to percolation theory [8-9], if we assume p as the average degree of connectivity between various sub-units of some arbitrary system, there exists a percolation threshold [p.
With knowledge of the crop type, planting and harvest dates, soil type, typical applied water depths and local reference ET and rainfall, a daily root zone water balance can be developed to compute daily irrigation requirements as well as deep percolation (root zone drainage) depths.
54 cm depth, for this case water traversed 32 m (half length) and water deep percolation depth was decreased to 0.
A number of alternative techniques for making a percolation test have been proposed (Mulqueen & Rodgers, 2001; Rodgers & Mulqueen, 2004; Schmidt et al.
Therefore it is important to know the percolation threshold of the layer in various directions, as a function of the microstructure.
Another important observation is the fact that percolation was not always achieved by the largest clusters, there were instances where the percolating clusters were unsuspected thin clusters far from being the fattest ones.
Percolation theory has been used extensively to model various aspects of flow through porous media to describe the dependence of large-scale flow phenomena on heterogeneities found at the pore scale (Hunt 2001).
A council spokesman said they planned to install a new percolation area for the tank but they wouldn't be able to do the work until March or April when the weather improves.
6), filler percolation thresholds of N234 CB in unbrominated BIMS or IMS (poly(isobutylene-co-paramethylstyrene), no bromine) and in IR were determined based on changes in rheological properties and changes in particle spacing, as measured from tapping phase AFM morphologies.
percolate--program to assess the percolation or connectivity of a "phase" in a 3-D segmented image (18);
232) and recently argued about whether evidence of fluid movement through the rocks there reflects an ancient upwelling of brine or the ongoing percolation of rainwater down through the mountain (SN: 6/12/99, p.
