The plate is considered asymmetric in the tangential direction which means that the displacements, stresses, and strains are functions of the tangential component. A semianalytical method which is a combination of DQM, state space, and the Fourier series methods is applied for solving the governing equations of motion.
As shown in Figure 2(a), the tangential component of an incident electric field wave is zero at the bottom of a corrugated surface, which indicates zero resistance, according to the boundary condition.
From the Cartesian components of [??], its normal component [B.sub.n] and tangential component Bt can be obtained as follows (Figure 6):
Similarly the displacement [u.sup.[alpha]] on the boundary [[GAMMA].sup.[alpha]] can be decomposed into a tangential component [u.sup.[alpha].sub.T], and respectively a normal one [u.sup.[alpha].sub.n] = [u.sup.[alpha].sub.i] [n.sup.[alpha].sub.i], [u.sup.[alpha].sub.T] = [u.sup.[alpha].sub.i] - [u.sup.[alpha].sub.n] [u.sup.[alpha].sub.i]
The interface conditions must satisfy the continuity of the radial component of the flux density and the continuity of the tangential component of the magnetic field.
It is well known that assuming the classical hypothesis of [[mu].sub.Fe] to be infinite, the tangential component of the magnetic field intensity [??] at any point of the stator (or rotor) surface equals the linear current density at this point ([15] page 47, [17] page 244, [18] page 342).
Generally the presumption is made, that surfaces of the colliding bodies are smooth and both the direction and magnitude of tangential component of the velocity remain constant during the impact.
A method was developed for the determination of the distribution of the electric field, which develops between the interior surfaces of the applicator--on the interior metallic surface of the applicator there is a tangential component of the magnetic field and a phase different perpendicular component of the electric field which develop in space (Leuca, 2007).
(26) allows the determination - the friction force in the guidebars between the movable two-blade block and tool-holder depends on the tangential and axial components of the cutting force and on the length of the guidebars of the tool-holder as the influence of tangential component is stronger.
Tangential component of the grinding force consists of constant and variable component and can be rate taking into account of damping on the following formula:
Tangential component of the AM magnetic field is described by inhomogeneous Bessel equation [22], which right-hand part [F.sub.b](r) is determined by the electron beam that moves above the plasma column.
For y-polarized incident plane wave [[bar.E].sup.(inc)] = exp(i[k.sub.0]x)[[bar.e].sub.y] and [[bar.H].sup.(inc)] = exp(i[k.sub.0]x)[[bar.e].sub.z], the tangential component of transformed electric field [bar.E] = exp(i[k.sub.0]x)(f[[bar.e].sub.y] + df/dx y[[bar.e].sub.x]) at interface x = a equals zero.
