The polar part of the total surface clearly increases with the length of the silicone chains due to better surface orientation of the structure 5 and 6 additives (Figure 7).
The fields arising from quadrupole, spatial dispersion, and EFISH are linearly mixed together with the surface dipolar SHG field contribution; hence, they may be hard to distinguish in low symmetry lattices although it is possible in some cases to separate their contributions for certain surface orientation using arbitrary polarization [11].

Effects of surface orientation and slurry coating on settlement of Sydney rock, Saccostrea commercialis, oysters on PVC slats in a hatchery.
To clarify the effect of the surface orientation on an injection molding sheet, we made oriented sheets by uniaxial extension, and we examined the tensile characteristics in the orientation direction and the direction perpendicular to the orientation direction.
For a piece that is processed into a technological system, generalized workpiece contain all intermediate and final surfaces, surfaces that may be, at the same time or successively: functional surfaces; surfaces to be processed, controlled, washed; surface orientation and/or fixing; surfaces of semi-handling (workpiece).
The surface orientation diagrams were drawn on the base of crack orientation data.
The effects of oriented strandboard (OSB) furnish properties, including strand length, width, thickness, and surface orientation, on the concentrated static load (CSL) and other mechanical properties of OSB were evaluated using a mixed level experimental design.
Applications include powder diffraction for bulk nanomaterial identification, glancing incidence diffraction for the analysis of deposited structures, small angle X-ray j scattering (SAXS) for determining general morphology and particle size distributions in liquids and solids, and in-plane diffraction for surface orientation and analysis of ultra-thin layers.
The customizable parameters include the size and locations of the source and receptor apertures, the specular angle, the surface orientation, and the reflection model.
Newer spatial insolation models provide better accuracy, faster calculation, broad availability and improved flexibility using a calculation algorithm called "upward-looking viewshed analysis." These models account for elevation, surface orientation, sky obstruction by surrounding topographic features and atmospheric conditions.
Each data station may contain S1, L1, F1-F4, or axial surface orientation data that must be oriented on the map with dip/plunge attributes attached.
