Note that the curvature effect on radiation is more in spherical surfaces (the curvature is in all directions) than in cylindrical surfaces, and the effective area exposed to the horn antenna is smaller.
When plastic shrinkage is taken into account (that is, an air gap is present), two new dimensionless groups appear, namely, the air gap curvature effect ([[Pi].
Consequently, the mold and plastic curvature effects can be ignored.
Figure 9 shows that for small curvature effect the dimensionless powder-end times for the plane and sphere using the differential model converge to the same value, whereas the larger the curvature effect the larger the deviation between the sphere and the plane predictions.

Given this definition, our attention was focused on the investigation of the baffle curvature effects on the power consumption.
Authors claim that the actual values and CFD model results indicated that CFD model can be successfully used for the determination of heating and cooling performances of curvature effects on Ranque-Hilsch vortex tube.

The 60 papers examine such topics as cold compressed baryonic matter with hidden local symmetry and holography, topological and curvature effects in a multi-fermion interaction model, continuum superpartners from supersymmetric unparticles, new regularization in extra dimensional model and renormalization group flow of the cosmological constant, and critical behaviors of sigma-mode and pion in holographic superconductors.
The RAT theory complements the conventional turbulence mechanics by accounting for the curvature effects of the velocity fluctuation streamlines on the formation of the average flow properties.
The suggested modified Ekman model explains the observed deviations from the point of view of the turbulence mechanics in Heinloo (2004) accounting for the curvature effects of the velocity fluctuation streamlines on the formation of the average flow properties.
Examples include his insights on magnetic island healing, curvature effects on island evolution, and convective instability of drift waves.
