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)

The Gener8 Hercules is currently loading for Shell while the Baltic Glory and Desimi loaded earlier in the month for Glencore and Vitol, respectively.
For opacity and tint strength, Optiwhite and Optiwhite MX permit up to 50% reduction in Ti[O.sub.2] loadings. Burgess No.
The fatigue properties of limestone samples subjected to multilevel amplitude cyclic loadings were investigated using an MTS815.02 rock mechanics test system.
According to (43) and (44), the exact expression of [omega] (z, t) is the key to obtaining excess pore-water pressure and average degrees of consolidation for different time-dependent loadings. The following sections will discuss each of [omega] (z, t) under suddenly imposed constant loading, single ramp loading, and trapezoidal cyclic loading.

In this study, two loading conditions were tested on each FE model: a vertical load on the incisal edge of the midline to simulate vertical loading while biting and lingual loading from the labial surface of the teeth to simulate protrusive jaw movement during mastication.
The lower September loading programme largely reflects a drop in the number of cargoes of benchmark Bonny Light crude oil, with six cargoes loading in September versus 10 cargoes of varying sizes in August.
Results of the study also indicated that the number of loadings noticeably affected soil sinkage.
In order to have a better prediction on the service life of the concrete structures under marine environment, the effect of loading on the chloride penetration into concrete needs to be studied.
This correlation could have been better: however, from examination of the capillary rheometer raw data, there was some "slip stick" and slippage that occurred with these loadings, even at 125[degrees]C.
Key words: rotating excavator, cantilever beam, dynamic loadings, deformity state.
Consistent concentrate is essential to getting higher loadings into film, says Heritage Bags' Ruiz.
