In this paper, four independent parameters, namely, clay mineral content, volume percentage of mobile fluid, throat radius, and start-up pressure gradient, are used to determine the locations of advantageous reservoirs.
According to the definition of permeability, the slope of the curve at each point stands for the permeability at the corresponding pressure gradient. The permeability rises with the increase of the pressure gradient under a low pressure gradient condition while it maintains constant when the pressure gradient is higher than a critical value.
Similar to the Newtonian calculation there is an additional mid-lip pressure gradient [DELTA][p'.sub.23] for bilayer coatings.
This led to a decrease of the pressure gradient in the log and reduced the amount dye that permeated into it, resulting in reduced color change and dye uptake with longer vacuum time.
The time derivatives of the internal pressure and pressure gradient were obtained from the CSA dataset as described in the appendix.
Zhang and Sarica [21] developed a model called unified model to predict the flow pattern and pressure gradient of three-phase gas-oil-water which was an improvement on the earlier unified model of Zhang et al.
TABLE 2: Changes in intraocular pressure, intracranial pressure, translaminar pressure gradient, and optic nerve disc structure.
We limited our echocardiographic analysis to mean pressure gradients and EOA, given their common use in surgical studies of this kind.
The obtained exact solutions have been applied to study effects of the slip parameter, thermophoresis, Brownian motion parameters, and many other parameters on the pressure rise, velocity profiles, temperature distribution, nanoparticle concentration, and pressure gradient. These exact solutions were proved to reduce to the results in the literature at special cases when [[beta].sub.2] = 0.
"As a result of an extension of surface low pressure from the east, with the presence of high pressure on Saudi Arabia, a strong pressure gradient between the high and low pressure has been created, which will accelerate the northwesterly winds from North Arabian Gulf," a statement from the NCMS said on Saturday.

Key and coworkers noticed that a pressure gradient, not exposure duration determined the extent of the epithelial cell damage in a model of pulmonary airway reopening [7].
