Bearing in mind this possible realization of such an inhomogeneous metamaterial, further we demonstrate considerable enhancement of the radiation absorption in the film with spatially varying orientation of the optical axes.
For the Y-shape system, the increase in radiation absorption occurred up to 11:00 am (515 W [m.sup.-2]), with a sharp fall from this time to only 120 W [m.sup.-2] in the period from 11:00 am to 12:00h, remaining with means below the other training systems until 1:00pm.
Radiation absorption (negative when radiation is absorbed) shows a peak in concomitance with the soot region and moderate values outside the sooty region with increasingly smaller absorption towards the pure ambient composition.

(A "gray" is a radiation absorption measure interchangeable with a sievert in terms of gamma and x-rays.) Since the discovery of radioactivity and x-rays in the late 19th century, lower exposures were known to produce beneficial health outcomes.
This fact showed one of the best advantages of orientation toward south-east which omit the afternoon non beneficial beam solar radiation absorption (afternoon [I.sub.T] ) on the vertical surfaces.
[41] studied the heat and mass transfer in unsteady free convection flow with radiation absorption past an impulsively started infinite vertical porous plate subjected to strong magnetic field including the Hall effect.
So far, the theoretical studies dealing with the combined effects of thermal radiation absorption and magnetic field on the transient flow of blood in a large artery with viscous dissipation have received very little attention.
Radiation absorption analysis for a given substance can be done for a single absorption line (dispersive methods) or for wide spectrum (non-dispersive methods) [2], [6].
One of the factors which influence the interaction of transfer processes is radiation absorption of semi transparent droplets.
The radiographic contrast of the exposed subject depends on its structural nature, with different thickness and radiation absorption indices.
