A function f [member of] S is uniformly convex if f(z) maps every circular arc y contained in [DELTA] with center [zeta] [member of] [DELTA] onto a convex arc.
n - volume efficiency, Q - actual flow rate, [m.sup.3]/s, Qt - theoretical flow rate, [m.sup.3]/s, [Q.sub.i-j] - leakage from high pressure chamber i (2, 3, 4, 5, 6) to low pressure chamber j (1, 2, 3), [m.sup.3]/s, Ql - the amount of leakage, [m.sup.3]/s, b - clearance seal width, m, h - clearance height, m, [DELTA]P - pressure difference between two ends of clearance, Pa, [micro] - fluid dynamic viscosity, Pas, l - clearance seal length, m, D - equidistant circular arc diameter of stator line, m.
The trumpet shape profile is the combination of a straight line and a circular arc or a parabolic curve.
where R is the radius of the circular arc on the centerline, l is the lane width, and b is the offset between the observer's path and the roadway edge on the inner roadside (Figure 1).
The four parts have similar profile which consists of two pieces of circular arc; the central angle of one piece of circular arc is 240[degrees] and the radius is r, while the radius of another piece of circular arc is R, as shown in Figure 2.
To study an effect of using interpolation to approximate the boundary, we analyze the accuracy and the convergence of the axisymmetric collocation method on a circular arc and on the polygonal boundary interpolation.
For a homogeneous system, only one circular arc can be observed in the curve.
Two-dimensional Euler equations calculate supersonic flow past a wedge, subsonic and transonic flow past a circular arc airfoil, subsonic flow past an ellipse, and supersonic flow past a cone.
The straight side is a triple-story glass face; the back, a circular arc. The restaurant's mid-level entrance descends onto the main floor, revealing large blackened steel columns supporting the ceiling.
Fitted with an in-house manufacture movement, the retrograde action of the second hand and minute hand move from left to right in a circular arc of 45 minutes, with an area for 15 minutes added time.
