2. Law the passing of title to property or other right from one person to another by act of the parties or by operation of law; conveyance

transfer

[′tranz·fər]
(computer science)
(mining engineering)
A vertical or inclined connection between two or more levels, used as an ore pass.
(navigation)
The distance a vessel moves perpendicular to its initial direction in making a turn of 90° with a constant rudder angle.
The distance a vessel moves perpendicular to its initial direction for turns of less than 90°.

transfer

In pretensioning, the act of conveying the stress in the prestressing tendons from the jacks (or pretensioning bed) to the concrete member.

transfer

To send data over a computer channel or bus. "Transfer" generally applies to transmission within the computer system, and "transmit" refers to transmission outside the computer over a line or network.

Transfers are actually copies, since the data are in both locations at the end of the transfer. Input, output and move instructions activate data transfers in the computer.

The technique is unlike the traditional magnetization transfer imaging method that is sensitive to solid-like proteins in tissue.
Magnetization transfer is excellent at imaging the demyelination process.
Images are acquired with and without pulses that excite this component of the water proton population, and the resultant signal intensities are used to compute a magnetization transfer ratio (MTR).
These considerations do not plague other methods for obtaining T1 contrast, such as RF-spoiled gradient-recalled, magnetization prepared techniques such as inversion recovery (IR), or magnetization transfer (MT) 3-dimensional spoiled gradient-recalled (SPGR) (Figures 3 and 4).
A special pulse sequence called magnetization transfer contrast (MTC) was developed to compensate for this off-resonance limitation.
