Rallies were taken out from different parts of the city and assembled at clock tower cross-section where parliamentary secretary on information and culture Muhammad Nadeem Qureshi addressed the participants.
(see Table 2), taking into account (1), the refined numerical values of the allowable cross-sections [] of the current-carrying parts of the considered CCP in the power circuits of general-purpose electrical installations can be found.
To do this, a dimensionless cut-off [r.sub.cut] is introduced which renders all cross-section pieces separately finite and the power-suppressed contributions vanish in the limit [r.sub.cut] [right arrow] 0 .MATRIX simultaneously computes the cross-section at several [r.sub.cut] values and then the extrapolated result is evaluated, including an estimate of the uncertainty of the extrapolation procedure, in an automatic way.
More difficult predictive calculations are provided for the unsymmetrically reinforced members, when the restrained shrinkage strains should be accounted for both cross-section edges requiring the development of the set of recurrent algebraic equations that allows avoiding solution Volterra equations using relaxation functions.
The presence of residual stresses in conjunction with high values of axial loads affects the spread of plasticity throughout the height of the steel section and hence may significantly influence both the ultimate strength capacity and inelastic deformability of the composite steel-concrete cross-section. The distribution of residual stresses is self-equilibrated (i.e.
In this section, the vertical dynamic response of variable cross-section and variable modulus pile is systematically investigated, which can provide the theoretical basis for various methods of dynamic pile testing.
Cross-sections of 14 MeV neutron induced reactions on some isotopes of chromium, zirconium and tin.
The downstream conditions include checking of cross-section and longitudinal profile of stream.

Codes do not provide calculation methods suitable in all cases to evaluate the strength (shear strength) of circular cross-section elements of reinforced concrete (AC/ 318-05:2005 Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete; BS8 100:1985 Structural Use of Concrete: Part I: Code for Practice for Design and Construction; EHE 1998:1998 EHE Instruction for Structural Concrete; CEB-FIP 1990:1993 CEB-FIP Model Code; SNiP 2.05.03-84:1985 Building Code.
Information about fibre orientation in composite space is used in further calculations of fixing the number of fibres and their distribution in the composite crack failure cross-section. An assumption has been made that a plane perpendicular to x-axis would run through composite space (150 mm cube).
