dwell time

The period for which a dye penetrant should remain on the surface of the component being inspected for any surface-defect-by-dyepenentrant inspection method. The dwell time is a direct function of the size of the surface defect and the temperature of the part. See also dye penetrant inspection.

Finally, the RCP system is capable of communicating with the ECU via CAN bus to read or overwrite the values of the injection parameters of interest (Dwell Time, Energizing Time and Start of Injection).
In Case 3, the decrease in the bus travel time at road sections exceeds or equals the total decrease in the travel time spent at intersections and in the dwell time at stops.
With an overall rate of 0.93 CLABSIs per 1,000 catheter days, the researchers did not find a positive correlation between dwell time and CLABSI risk from PICCs.
[[tau].sub.l] ([t.sub.k]) = [t.sub.k+1] - [t.sub.k] is called the dwell time of system (1) under topology [N.sup.l], l = [sigma] ([t.sub.k]).
The results listed above clearly show that an additional fixation into void regions reduced the number of stimulus fixations and the dwell times of these stimulus fixations in the same cluster, testifying to the fact that fixations into empty regions aided stimulus processing.
Lemma 3 provides us a method to compute the admissible dwell time of switched linear system (1); however, the parameters [mu] and [lambda] often need to be chosen manually in advance, and moreover, as the main disadvantage of Lemma 3, the estimation of admissible dwell time by [tau] > [[tau].sup.*] = ln [mu]/[lambda] is nonconvex in nature; thus, the obtained minimal admissible dwell time [tau] is usually significantly conservative by some inappropriate choices of parameters [mu] and [lambda] in the framework of MLF approach.
To rule out the negative impact of user's browsing behavior to the calculation of user interest, an exception handling strategy is introduced for the abnormal dwell time. When user's dwell time on a page exceeds a predetermined threshold, the value of the dwell time will be set to the maximum.
Bolger, the Army deputy chief of staff for operations, plans, and programs, said that the ability to conduct full-spectrum training depends on dwell time. As dwell time improves, more training can take place.
The new Flexi-Free HS Laminates heat seal at temperatures 40[degrees] lower than standard laminate materials, allowing machine operators to shorten dwell times and increase speed.
"Take the equipment back early and then redeliver it back at the end of their dwell time. Knowing what units are in reset, knowing which units are in training and available, and knowing which ones are deployed, allows us to focus the resources we have based on where they are in the ARFORGEN cycle."
The titanium samples were processed from titanium powder with 1OO[micro]m particles via spark plasma sintering technology at (1000-1100) [degrees]C with a dwell time of 10 and 20 min for each temperature.
