Numerical results in Figure 3 suggest that in weak fields ([h.sub.0] < 0.1, [H.sub.0] < [10.sup.2] A/m) the shielding factor preserves a constant maximum value, and the shielding effect is higher for more concentrated ferrofluids.
Define the crack shielding factor between parallel cracks as
In [10] an expression for the shielding factor was written more exactly, and radius of the domain within the circular passive loop in which it is recommended to place equipment was determined.
Beyond the shielding factor, the [B.sub.4C] concrete has density, weight and compressive strength comparable to conventional material," says Essroc Senior Manager, Technical Services Jeremy Betts.
Lack of education on this matter inside Yemen's rural areas is the single most shielding factor. There is a need to create awareness in those rural communities in order to shed light on how detrimental child marriage can be on a young girl's health and society as a whole.
It combines a high shielding factor with easy access to the UUT.
The shielding factor ([K.sub.e]) of the cylindrical shield is calculated as follows:
The axial shielding factor of the shielding (developed and provided by PNPI Gatchina, St.
The Allan standard deviations for integration times exceeding 100 s are due to slow drifts of laboratory fields which are not completely suppressed by the three-layer shield, which has a measured longitudinal shielding factor of [10.sup.3].
The measurement was made with neutral ground-state [Hg.sup.199] atoms, so the diamagnetic shielding factor will be slightly different from that in the ion.
