Line strength is another consideration when fishing, and plays a role in how far you can cast.
This tie will consistently provide close to 100 percent of line strength if the first uni-knot is snugged completely tight, and if final tightening is done carefully and with steady hard pressure.
Inflections identified in key metrics including Assortment Size and Assortment Strategy, as well as Wedbush Search Data signal robust top line strength, she adds.
In 1984, Pisipati and Baird [3] studied the correlation between the nonlinear Theological properties of polymer melts and the weld line strength, and, they stated that "Although the reduction in strength of a part as the result of a weld line is a widely recognized problem, a review of the literature reveals that there is very little fundamental understanding of the mechanism which accounts for the formation of a weld line." At present, the problem remains.
The quantities [[PHI].sub.0] and [PHI] are the incident and the transmitted radiant powers; [S.sub.T] is the molecular transition line strength of the probed absorption line at gas temperature T which is matched to the actually present isotopic abundance by means of [r.sub.iso], which is the ratio of the abundance in the sample compared to the value for which the line strength is reported.
Comparison of the resulting A-values with the accurate data discussed above shows that there is a strong dependence of the accuracy of the calculated A-values on the line strength S.
The hospital downsized its capacity in 1975 after the RAF completed the reduction of its front line strength in Cyprus after a wave of defence cuts, but the downsized facility played an instrumental role in treating US Marines from Beirut in 1983 who were seriously injured in a suicide bomb attack.
The pieces were collected to be reviewed by judges according to rules such as their flow, line strength and angles.
I was on double red maggot and a line strength of just over 3lbs with a size 16 hook.
The paper said it understood that the SAS - which has planned a key role in Afghanistan and Iraq as well as in anti-terrorist operation - had a one third shortage of its front line strength.
Most of the action had been confined to the airfields in Kent and the South-east and, although the German losses had been heavy, the RAF was extremely hard-pushed to keep up its front line strength. The Germans were aware that they were exacting a heavy toll on our defences, but typically the Nazi high command over-estimated their success.
* A design to improve staple line strength while decreasing bleeding, leakage and the subsequent risk of infection.
