Some men, cutting wood near the base of one of these volcanos, did not perceive the shock of the 20th, although the whole surrounding Province was then trembling; here we have an eruption relieving and taking the place of an earthquake, as would have happened at Concepcion, according to the belief of the lower orders, if the volcano at Antuco had not been closed by witchcraft.
Nevertheless, a poor lame old man, who had been in the habit, during trifling shocks, of crawling to a certain doorway, was this time crushed to pieces.
The shock had been so slight that no one had been alarmed, had it not been for the shouts of the carpenter's watch, who rushed on to the bridge, exclaiming, "We are sinking
Suddenly a dreadful shock was felt, and the projectile, under the force of six billions of litres of gas, developed by the combustion of pyroxyle, mounted into space.
The harvest-men rose from the shock of corn, and stretched their limbs, and extinguished their pipes.
Some such collapse had been probable, so tender and puny was its frame; but the event came as a shock nevertheless.
The harvesters ceased working, took their provisions, and sat down against one of the shocks.
Instead, the shock pulse can be processed with an analytical routine that plots the response of an infinite number of progressively tuned, single-degree-of-freedom, spring-mass resonators to the shock.
Its transfer rate has a rotational speed of 10,025 RPM and a load/unload technology that allows the drive to achieve a non-operational shock specification of 250G at 2ms.
Non-MR shock absorbers use engineered orifices to adjust the speed of the fluid inside the unit, and thus control ride motions along a predefined curve.
Nathan Shock will have had a greater impact than all the regulatory and reimbursement changes of recent years combined in shaping the future of long-term care.
To measure shock waves, the subjects ran on a treadmill at speeds near their anaerobic threshold for 30 minutes with an instrument called an accelerometer attached to the bump of bone just below the knee where the patellar tendon attaches.
