drift

1. The lateral deflection of a building, due to wind or other loads.
2. In a water spray device, the entrained unevaporated water carried from the device by air movement through it.
4. A deposit of loose materials such as gravel, rock fragments, clay and other soils which have been driven together by water, wind, or ice.

Control of lateral drift distribution through global elements
To calculate lateral drift, the well-known Paulay model as explained in previous section was adopted.
The residual drift is taken as the drift at the point of zero lateral force at the end of the first cycle of each imposed lateral drift level [32], as shown in Figure 12(a).
A proper CA model that can precisely depict bicycles' lateral drift manner and ensure realism of the simulation in different traffic conditions thus needs to be put forward.
(HARI), a partner for the third straight year, the vision of Lateral Drift Productions to grow the motorsport has become a reality.
where [[DELTA].sup.OP] is the lateral drift in center of gravity at roof level and [[DELTA].sup.-OP] is the allowable lateral drift in center of gravity at roof level both in operational level.
So, the engineers came up with the Rite-Trac keel, which keeps more of the hull in the water and out of the wind for incredible side-to-side stability and straighter tracking with less lateral drift. Having a beam near 8 feet also makes the Z118 proportionally wider than most boats, for more room and stability.
Development work in the 1920s and 1930s, which consisted of a near-vertical 30-metre shaft and 50 metres of lateral drifting on the Kingston vein, yielded historical values averaging approximately 15 grams per ton gold over approximately one metre of width continuously along the vein for the depth of the shaft and the length of the 50 metres of lateral drift.
However, some lateral drift development within lower grade Pense material was required to reach the EJF.
In hallux valgus deformity the first metatarsal head shifts medially allowing lateral drift of the sesamoid complex into the interspace.
P-delta effects, resulting from the magnification of member forces due to building lateral drift, were important for this project due to the potentially destabilizing effects of the cantilevered zone.
It is a judged event where the most crucial element is being able to kick the side of the car into a lateral drift, holding a smoky burnout throughout the entire course.
