The higher the ratio of the disturbing frequency to the natural frequency of the isolators, the lower the percent transmissibility of the vibratory forces.
Because the reassortment that he claims with no basis whatsoever will not occur in nature can be accomplished in the laboratory--yielding a wide variety of potential combinations (such as a pathogen with the lethality of Ebola and the transmissibility of the common cold)--biological defenses are obviously a very important part of the war, even if fatal to his argument.
Factors such as temperature change can cause changes in transmissibility, which can result in false reports of damage.
Stiffer pallet decks, for example, can minimize the potential for product damage by reducing the transmissibility of the vibration at resonance.
2] values at equilibrium and claims that this relationship shows that higher transmissibility leads to the evolution of increased virulence.
The typical curve of transmissibility is given in figure 5.
Because public fears are unrelenting in this regard, NHF continues to work with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to further document lack of transmissibility of HIV in households, which can be extrapolated to the school setting.
Moreover, we have few predictors of potential human-to-human transmissibility.
A reduction in the natural frequency from 14 Hz to 7 Hz was achieved by using the magnets, and the measured transmissibility from a displacement input showed that the device behaved approximately linearly.
Polycarbonate glazing has many advantages over conventional glass glazing, but high heat transmissibility remains a problem.
Therefore, WHO has offered its assistance to mobilise international expertise to Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates to investigate the current outbreaks in order to determine the transmission chain of this recent cluster and whether there is any evolving risk that may be associated with the current transmissibility pattern of the virus.
Another 29 reviews consider such topics as mechanisms of acid resistance in Escherichia coli, microbial contributions to phosphorus cycling in eutrophic lakes and wastewater, wall teichoic acids of Gram-positive bacteria, biological consequences and advantages of asymmetric bacterial growth, prions and the potential transmissibility of protein misfolding diseases, and the wonderful world of archaeal viruses.
