melting rate

melting rate

[′melt·iŋ ‚rāt]
(metallurgy)
In electric arc welding, the weight or length of electrode melted in a specified unit of time. Also known as burn-off rate; melt-off rate.

Although that's not of general benefit, the crossing barriers require many more calculations to accurately calculate the melting rate and output.
The recent melting rate is 15 percent higher than what a study found last year.
the melting rate has tripled in the last five years.
While addressing a round-table conference on 'the state of Food Security and Nutrition in the World', the Secretary said that high melting rate would result into floods and decrease in the ice cap.
The area of declining glaciers has already been studied, the acceleration of the melting rate of ice has been estimated, and the cracks in the glacier appeared as a result of this process.
He explained that the drought situation had arisen from less rainfall in the catchment area from December to March and poor snow melting rate poor because of low temperatures.
And the melting rate in Greenland is also grandiose - just in somewhere remote that doesn't grab headlines.
To investigate the effect of melting rate on high-resolution melting, we studied melting rates over a 250-fold range from 0.13 to 32[degrees]C/s.
The forced convection in the whole melt is instrumental in generating a homogenous temperature distribution and high scrap melting rate. The melt velocity achieved is roughly ten times faster, as compared to just having natural convection in the bath, and results in less power on time.
The Model DC-950 electric resistance crucible-type aluminum melting furnace from Rayteq LLC, Healdsburg, Calif., has a melting rate of 1,000 lbs./hour and a capacity of more than two tons.
The purpose is twofold: (i) isolate the solid bed from the melt pool during melting and thus develop a more stable process (in conventional screws, the local transversal melt pressure may cause rupture of the solid bed) and minimize surging; (ii) increase the contact area between solid bed and channel metal walls (with high heat conductivity) and achieve higher melting rates. Other solutions were gradually proposed, usually focusing on increasing the melting rate, minimizing flow instabilities during the transition between the feed or metering zones and the barrier, or improving the positive drag capacity of the solids and/ or melted material.
In [9] the research results from a study of anode and cathode melting rates are presented and in [10] the characteristic of melting rate as a function of current, type of gas, and other parameters is reported.
