Other issues may exist with the barrier mass, stiffness, THOR dummy or test oblique angle.
Figure 3 shows the envelope curves extracted from fractured long bones with different fracture degrees and fracture oblique angles. The envelope amplitude is depicted in different colors with maxima in red and 0 in gray.
The effect of M number is different when the oblique angle is large or small: when the oblique angle is relatively smaller, the increase of M number would decrease the absolute growth rate; while the oblique angle is relatively large (close to [pi]/2), the variation of M number has no influence on the absolute growth rate.
To examine the effects of substrate rotation speed and deposition rate on the surface morphology and WCA, Si[O.sub.2] nanostructures were fabricated using a GLAD technique under the following conditions: substrate rotation from 0.2 to 20 rpm, deposition rates of 5 and 10 [Angstrom]/s, a fixed thickness of 500 nm, and a fixed oblique angle of 82[degrees].
Therefore the power of this wave propagates under an oblique angle in an anisotropic medium.

Silver (99.99% purity) helical pentagon shaped nanosculptured thin films were deposited at 75[degrees] oblique angle deposition on glass (15 x 15 [mm.sup.2] microscope slide) substrates, using resistive evaporation from tungsten boats with an outlet of 6 mm diameter at room temperature.
The oblique angle of his Portrait pictures might relate to Uglow's own position in the New York art world: a subtly transgressive artist who realized that embodiment does not necessarily require the direct depiction of bodies.
Nine eye-witness reports were collected, which would seem to indicate the bolide entered the atmosphere at an oblique angle, and after a passage of perhaps a few seconds, exploded leaving a persistent cloud visible up to one hour after the explosion.
The accelerated patch hits the substrate at an oblique angle where the high impact velocity induces plastic flow at the film-substrate interface.
But until recently I never realized that the projectile that formed Aristillus may have hit the lunar surface from an oblique angle. The evidence is there for the discerning eye, in the distribution of ridged and furrowed material that makes up the continuous ejecta deposit closely surrounding the crater.
The oldest definitive structure on the Moon, the crater is between 3.9 and 4.5 billion years old, and is slightly elongated, suggesting it was formed by an object that struck the moon at an oblique angle.
