A ventilation layer (13) having a structure permeable to air at least in the transverse and/or longitudinal direction of the running strip (3) is disposed between the noise dampening insert (9) or noise dampening insert arrangement and connected to the inner side (10) of the running strip (2) supporting the running surface (3).
This film must retain an elongation capability in the longitudinal direction of at least 310% so that a force of less than 6 N is required to stretch the film by 75% in the longitudinal direction.
The study bridge (Koyembedu Bridge) is symmetric, however both the longitudinal and transverse responses are significant because the lateral load may lead to stability problem in the transverse direction and unseating of deck is most common in the longitudinal direction. Modal analysis predicts the dynamic characteristics of structures under vibrational excitation.
A spherical bearing fixed in the longitudinal direction exists for middle girder G3 at interior pier no.
Wood is substantially stiffer in the longitudinal direction than in the other two directions.
cycle time provides extremely high productivity (YP220BX under operating conditions of 50 mm in vertical direction, 150 mm in longitudinal direction, 50 in arch volume, and 1 Kg load).
Xe spins are also polarized in the longitudinal direction. The neutron spins rotate around the neutron beam axis under magnetic and pseudomagnetic fields.
The alternating current creates an expanding and collapsing magnetic field in a longitudinal direction across the coil windings.
Biaxial orientation can be accomplished by using the mold to pull on the tube in the longitudinal direction. This feature will be included in future models.
Under a predetermined extension of 1% in the longitudinal direction of the reinforcements, each bracing ply has a tension of <17,500 N per dm of width, and the bracing bandage as a whole has a tension of >2,000 N per dm of width.
