The fluid resistance can be enhanced with higher VA content.
Numerous computational fluid dynamic (CFD) simulations were performed in order to quantify the dependence of fluid resistance on nozzle angle.
The author developed a finite element program of control rod's drop-down, built a collision model, and could calculate fluid resistance not relying on the experiment, while the author only simplified the force of the fluid on the control rod as added mass, having made a limited analysis on the fluid-structural model, without taking into account the impact from the gap between control rod guide tube and control rod assembly.
"This improved performance may reflect the fact that the aquatic treadmill exercise involved the fluid resistance of the water environment," Dr.
Goodrich pneumatic de-icing systems satisfy a variety of performance and aesthetic criteria for the aviation community, offering fluid resistance and built-in protection against ozone, weathering, oxidation and erosion.
The standard includes a requirement for fluid resistance according to Test Method F1862: Resistance of Medical Face Masks to Penetration by Synthetic Blood (Horizontal Projection of Fixed Volume at a Known Velocity), in addition to requirements for particulate filtration and bacterial filtration."
In head-to-head fluid resistance tests with other competitive single-use surgical gowns currently available, Aero Blue delivered four times greater fluid protection than other non-reinforced gowns in the AAMI Level 3 category, and two times greater protection than fabric-reinforced gowns.
Furthermore, the XF-641 (white) and XF-647 (yellow) products have passed the stringent Boeing 1347J specification for fluid resistance. This method includes exposure to harsh fluids such as low density aviation hydraulic fluid, jet fuel and lubricating oil.
There's a fluid resistance in the way she dodges and dips; her small but sturdy frame pushes through space like a paddle against a heavy current.
Reduction in drag means less fuel would be required to overcome the fluid resistance encountered by the moving vehicle.
Good fluid resistance makes the sleeves suitable for rail and mass transit, automotive and truck aftermarket, industrial machinery, commercial and military electronics applications.
Therefore, the required heat to cooling fluid resistance [R.sub.sa] can be determined.
