The goal of the paper is to carry out the engineering approach refining the existing ones that determines the minimum allowable cross sections [S.sub.lmin] of the cable and conductor producta in industrial power engineering for calculation selection of the maximum allowable cross sections [S.sub.il] of electrical wires and cables in the power circuits of industrial electrical equipment taking into account the flow of three-phase short-circuit current [i.sub.k](t) in emergency mode.
The prestressed beam, simply supported at the ends with the cross section A = 0.3045 [m.sup.2], has the span L = 18.3 m, the width b = 1.22 m, the height h = 0.61 m, and the section modulus [Z.sub.t] = 0.0352 [m.sup.3] and [Z.sub.b] = -0.03869 [m.sup.3]; the limit stresses are [f.sub.tt] = -1.34 MPa, [f.sub.tc] = 17.38 MPa, [f.sub.sc] = 18.6 MPa, and [f.sub.st] = -3.21 MPa; the dead weight is [W.sub.t] = 8.76 kN/m; and 500 kg of TNT exploded 200 m away from the bridge while traffic load [W.sub.tr].
In order to investigate the general average scattering cross sections of nonspherical mineral particles, three aerosols, that is, the feldspar, quartz, and red clay, are studied, and the spheroid model is used to represent the real nonspherical mineral particle.
These mathematical relations provides a systematic set of solutions that can very well describe the behavior of according cross sections at any given depth.
As it can be seen, the strain softening effect exhibited by the concrete in compression ([gamma] > 0) indicates lower bending capacity of cross section and also "snap-back" behaviour for bending-moment-curvature about weak axis; this effect is more accentuated as degree in confinement is decreased.
At LO, there are two Born-level subprocesses contributing to the prompt photon production cross section: the quark-gluon Compton scattering q([bar.q])g [right arrow] [gamma]q([bar.q]) or quark-anti- quark annihilation q[bar.q] [right arrow] [gamma]g.
A 3D model of the intima and adventitia not deformed by the catheter inserted was generated as shown in Figure 19 by applying the result of the sequential triangulation method using each 3D catheter path to each cross section of the intima and adventitia extracted from the IVUS images.
3--The interpolated values are calculated to obtain the adopted cross section which is based on the weighted average calculation according to the following expressions [10]:
The Georgia Tech team built an ultra-high vacuum system that simulates conditions in space, then performed the first-ever reported measurement of the water photodesorption cross section from an actual lunar sample.
In Goksu stream, flood capacity was increased by enlarging of the cross section and straightening of flow direction.

In a previous paper [1] referred to as paper #1, it was demonstrated that the Lorenz-Mie (L-M) cross section for light scattering from monodisperse microspheres suspended in water gave a good description of absorbance measurements with a commercial spectrometer with an integrating sphere (IS) detector for wavelengths greater than 300 nm.
