s] influences value of lateral pressure of three-dimensionally compressed concrete, which creates the so-called "charger clip effect".
The finite element approach has been adopted to predict the performance of the backfill material and the lateral pressure escalation on the wall face;
The use of geofoam backfilling against a vertical structure significantly reduces and/or eliminates lateral pressure on that structure, whether it is a bridge abutment, retaining wall, or foundation wall.
In such cases, a patient may not suffer from an excessive lateral pressure phenomenon.
Located along the shaft of the drill, the actuators apply lateral pressure against the side of the borehole to alter the orientation of the drill head.
Both excellent fuel efficiency and quietness are achieved through the efficient transmission of driving force by optimizing the lateral pressure applied to the belt, along with the durability of the belt.
Cut slowly without lateral pressure and be sure to clear the chips every few thousandths.
Ten chapters (each with references; contributors are based in the UK, France, and the US) discuss methods and parameters for membrane simulations, lateral pressure profiles in lipid membranes, coarse-grained molecular dynamics simulations, models for peptide folding and insertion, membrane sculpting by N-BAR domains, computational approaches to ionotropic glutamate receptors, and active transport across the cellular membrane, among other topics.
Lateral pressure on the midbrain can, however, compress the opposite crus cerebri against the free edge of the tentorium, forming an indentation in the crus known as Kernohan's notch.
