For the fluid motion along the prescribed flow geometry, as depicted in Figure 4, the component along the sinusoidal corrugations (u/cos[theta]) provides this reference velocity, [V.
The main reasons of unconventionally complicated load-bearing behaviour of such panels are: a complicated geometry that includes the transverse corrugation, an effect of cold deformation on the materials properties of the panel and, possibly, the complex loads during the service life of the structure.
The objective of this article is to present a systematic optimization method and results for the optimal designs of PHEs with sinusoidal-shaped corrugations by adopting a multi-objective genetic algorithm (MOGA) based approximation-assisted optimization (AAO).
As an added benefit, contact points between offset corrugations in the VORTEX design are resistance-welded throughout the catalyst element for superior strength and durability.
The answer is simply to make the short ends of the hall transparent, infilled with huge panels of vertically corrugated glazing (the corrugations soften the glass for acoustic purposes).
The dirt highways are graded at least once every year but the harsh conditions and convoys of 150 ton Road Trains rip up the surfaces and create deep chasms and mile after mile of eyeball-jarring corrugations.
The result is regular corrugations every 1 to 2 in.
It also has corrugations on the sides and the top for added strength while maintaining backward compatibility with our previous design.
The popularity of the tiny corrugations has risen at an impressive rate in recent years and according to the experts, it still has a long way to go.
5oz, is crafted from sheet metal with horizontal corrugations.
Featuring corrugations that allow small bend diameters, this flexible tubing can operate continuously up to 200[degrees]F.
