Mold filling and packing have a significant influence on the pressure distribution in the cavity.
Nuclear physicists from the Department of Energy's Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (Jefferson Lab) accomplished, for the first time, the feat of measuring the pressure distribution inside a proton - one of the three larger subatomic particles, along with the electron and the neutron, that makes up all atoms.
The precession motion of the journal is induced by residual unbalance of the rotor and generates a hydrodynamic squeeze film pressure distribution that applies reaction forces over the journal, providing the damping force to attenuate the transmitted forces and in turn reducing the rotor vibration.
Kiparissides and Vlachopoulos [7] calculated the pressure distribution numerically using finite element method for the symmetric and asymmetric calendering process for Newtonian and non-Newtonian fluids.
But drug delivery has many problems such as two factors that inhibit the effective delivery of drugs within tumors: non-uniform blood supply and non-uniform interstitial pressure distribution (Jain & Baxter, 1988; Jain, 1988).
However, if at a certain scale amplitude of the cosine harmonic is much smaller than its period, full contact on this scale occurs, and a continuous oscillating pressure distribution on a larger scale will be observed [33, 38].

The roadway stability is dramatically influenced by the abutment pressure distribution [1-3].
The total area of the contact plateaus, which are known to affect squeal generation, was estimated using pressure sensitive films, which indicated the pressure distribution of the contact plateaus [15].
Figure 2 shows the difference between the basic theoretical pressure, as calculated by the theory of elastic contact, and a more realistic contact pressure distribution obtained by Finite Element Analysis (FEA).
