The sail has an uninterrupted lens of uni-directional fibres in the luff of the sail, taking the load from the tack all the way to the head, along its natural load path, instead of requiring many tons of cable tension to try and keep the luff tight.
The total natural load of P reaches 23.9 t.[year.sup.-1] (13.7 kg.[km.sup.-2].[year.sup.-1]), with 55% from soil loss and 45% from atmospheric deposition.
The obtained results are primary for ongoing development of the loading unit, and the law of channel diameter variation for natural load on the oar simulation will be defined in the next investigation.
Amidst this, the launch of the latest revolution in mitigating seismic risks and other demanding natural loads by Emirates Building Systems, or EBS, a subsidiary of Dubai Investments, assumes far greater significance.
Copper had a mean distribution of about 80 to 130 mg/kg in beach sand, and Cu natural loads were found to be higher than Izmit Bay, where Cu ranged from 20 to 77 mg/kg [16].
For example, sediment from Nea Chora port breakwater had about 7 times higher Cu, 40 times higher Zn and 20 times higher Pb concentration, than their respective natural loads.
In an ideal course aimed at increasing strength, we will therefore assist in the phase of 6/9 year-olds a workout purely of coordination, for the 9/12 year-olds we would expect stimulation of rapid strength, in the youngsters from 12 to 15 years old a workout based on general strengthening with natural loads, after 15 years old a first stimulus of maximal strength, destined ad increasing gradually only at the end of the pubertal age.
