Current code R-values only consider thermal resistance for conductive heat transfer and exclude air leakage resistance (convective heat transfer) and energy losses associated with it.
w.g.) or a building enclosure requirement to meet an air leakage resistance of 2.0 L/s-[m.sup.2] at 75 Pa (0.39 [ft.sup.3]/min x [ft.sup.2] at 0.3 in.
The harmonics argument differences (obtained from PC) can be further used for signalizing of the decrease in the leakage resistance as well as for tripping faulty line.
Their most significant advantages are extended shelf life, good low-temperature operation, high operating voltage and excellent leakage resistance. The 20 mm-diameter lithium button batteries, however, have brought new challenges to pediatric health care providers.
However, to be useful, their capacitance value, voltage rating, temperature coefficient and leakage resistance must be characterized.
A 1-G[ohm] leakage resistance has been assumed that, without the guard, would cause an additional 15 nA to flow through the ammeter.
The current of surface leakage is determined by a certain equivalent leakage resistance [R.sub.12] Consequently, the total current through the collector junction can be written as
* IV Infusion Filters--Ventilation and high leakage resistance, for efficient dissipation of air bubbles in the IV solution stream and for effective air evacuation during filter reprimes
R2 is the leakage resistance that represents forgetting.
The leakage resistance of the stator inductive [x.sub.l] value is not normally determined with the tests.
