close coupling

[¦klōs ′kəp·liŋ]
(electricity)
The coupling obtained when the primary and secondary windings of a radio-frequency or intermediate-frequency transformer are close together.
A degree of coupling that is greater than critical coupling. Also known as tight coupling.

This begins to explain the ancestral origins of the neural basis for the close coupling between vocal and pectoral/gestural signalling that is observed among many vertebrate groups, including humans.
The experimental setup for the single duct field and the close coupling installation is diagrammed in Figures 1 and 2, respectively.
For these experiments, duct velocity was the experimental noise condition, either inlet duct velocity for the single duct field testing, or main duct velocity for the close coupling testing.

CombiMagBloc close-coupled pumps incorporate a self-centering 'Taper Lock' close coupling feature which enables the outer rotor to be directly mounted onto the motor shaft and this eliminates the potential for any 'flexible' coupling or bearing frame mis-alignment.
Although Linux is not seen as a universal remedy, the report apparently concludes that Linux removes the need for close coupling between the OS and specific hardware.
Our complete close coupling calculations show: 1) that [a.sub.f=0] is actually near [a.sub.f=2], crossing it as the inner ABO potentials are varied, and 2) that [F.sup.vJ'.sub.s2](E) [much greater than] [F.sup.vJ'.sub.s0](E) is valid for the transitions we study.
This nodal pattern is confirmed by full multi-channel close coupling calculations for a variety of realistic [X.sup.1][summation over (g)] and [a.sup.3][summation over (u)] potentials.
'There is certainly a conflict between requirements for independents and requirements for close coupling with the industry.
"The finding that nicotine metabolism rate has an impact on the brain's response to smoking cues supports our hypothesis that individuals with fast nicotine metabolism rates would have a greater brain response to smoking cues because of close coupling in everyday life between exposure to cigarettes and surges in blood nicotine concentration," said clinician-scientist Dr.
