loading

[′lōd·iŋ]
(chemical engineering)
Condition of vapor overcapacity in a liquid-vapor-contact tower, in which rising vapor lifts or holds falling liquid.
(electricity)
The addition of inductance to a transmission line to improve its transmission characteristics throughout a given frequency band. Also known as electrical loading.
(engineering)
Buildup on a cutting tool of the material removed in cutting.
Filling the pores of a grinding wheel with material removed in the grinding process.
(engineering acoustics)
Placing material at the front or rear of a loudspeaker to change its acoustic impedance and thereby alter its radiation.
(fluid mechanics)
The relative concentration of particles in a flowing fluid.
In particular, the ratio of particle mass flow to fluid mass flow.
(metallurgy)
Filling of a die cavity with powdered metal.
(nucleonics)
Placing fuel in a nuclear reactor.
