Sheet

 

(in Russian, list), in printing and publishing, the unit of measure of printed output.

The author’s sheet (avtorskii list), which in the USSR is equivalent to 40,000 characters, is used to calculate the length of a manuscript.

The paper sheet (bumazhnyi list) is the unit for calculating the amount of paper required for or used in publication. It is given in terms of width and length—for example, 60 × 90 cm. The trim size of a finished book, magazine, or other publication is 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, or other fraction of a sheet, depending on the dimensions of the paper sheet and the number of folds made in it during production. The sizes of paper sheets have been standardized in most countries. In the USSR, GOST (All-Union State Standard) 1342–68, Paper for Printing: Dimensions, specifies seven sizes for sheet paper (in cm)—60 × 84, 60 × 90, 70 × 90, 70 × 100, 70 × 108, 75 × 90, AND 84 × 108—as well as seven widths for roll paper, between 60 and 120 cm. Gost 6445–53 sets roll widths of 42 to 168 cm.

The printer’s sheet (pechatnyi list) is used to calculate the actual length of a publication; the unit of measure is a paper sheet 60 × 90 cm, printed on one side. For paper of other dimensions (for example, 70 × 90 cm), the term “actual printer’s sheet” is used. In planning and keeping records of publishing output, the length calculated in actual printer’s sheets is usually converted into standard 60 × 90 sheets by means of a factor equal to the ratio of the area of the sheet being used to the area of the 60 × 90 sheet, which is taken as 1.

The publisher’s record sheet (uchetno-izdatel’skii list) is used to calculate the length of a publication and, like the author’s sheet, is equivalent to 40,000 characters of text, 700 lines of verse, or 3,000 sq cm of graphic material. The length of a publication calculated in publisher’s record sheets includes the text of the written work itself, plus all the other textual and graphic material (editorial foreword, column numbers, running heads, and so on). Publisher’s record sheets are used in planning and record-keeping and in measuring the work of editors, production editors, and proofreaders.

The concept of ICSIPs is still based on a sandwich structure, in which a soft light-weight thick core is sandwiched between two strong face sheets. The ICSIPs that are developed and evaluated in this research are composed of low-cost orthotropic thermoplastic GFRP laminate as the bottom face sheet, expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam as the core, and recycled aggregate concrete as the top face sheet (Figure 1).
Interfacial debonding between the top face sheet and core was the dominant failure mode for specimens TS75-75, TS125-75, and TS175-75, all of which have the same lattice-web height (75 mm) but different lattice-web spacing values (75 mm, 125 mm, and 175 mm).
Real-time deformation of front face sheet measured by VIC-3D was shown in Figure 11.
Nowadays, sandwich composites have been adopted in various areas such as aerospace, marine and automotive sectors due to the constructed with two stiff, strong face sheets and a lightweight, relatively flexible core, and a high bending stiffness and strength per unit weight.
Whether electronic or on paper, the uniform face sheet documenting the procurement action is very important.
The booklet of Experiment 2 consisted of a face sheet, six sheets (one for practice and five for scoring) each for two games, and a questionnaire sheet.
The under surface of each type of face sheet was different and this was expected to affect the contact between the honeycomb and the face sheet.
Your collections staff should never have access to medical records because their tasks only require the information typically found on the resident's admission paperwork, commonly called the resident face sheet. This data includes the responsible party, addresses, phone numbers, and insurance information.
These flexible displays are constructed by combining a thin, shatterproof steel foil transistor substrate with E Ink's paper-like electronic ink display material coated onto a plastic face sheet. Steel foil was chosen as the transistor backplane material because of its overall performance from initial transistor processing through final display use.
