The tangential plane contracts more than the radial plane that, which following, contracts more than the axial plane, to mention the averages of 19%, 15%, and 11% respectively, to the studied species.
[A.sub.x], [B.sub.x], [C.sub.x], and [D.sub.x] are the standard ray matrix elements in the tangential plane (xoz plane).
Conveniently, we take ray's propagation in one tangential plane as an example as shown in Figure 1.
However, accumulating evidence suggests that certain types of neurons exhibit migration in all directions, usually on the tangential plane. This phenomenon could be viewed as a sort of tangential migration, but the behavior of these neurons is quite distinct from those that migrate in specific directions.
Imaging spectrographs are optical instruments used to disperse and sharply focus light in the plane of dispersion, typically the horizontal or tangential plane of the instrument, onto a focal plane array detector.
At tangential plane, higher temperature is found on the front wall, rear wall, and the side walls.
Since [f.sub.T] arises at the tangential plane at the contact point (Arimoto et al., 1992), see figure 1, it is then function of joint velocity [??], in terms of [??] = J[??] as follows
Then it is rotated such that the tangential plane g(x, y) = [t.sub.1]x + [t.sub.2]y + [t.sub.3] can be written as ax + s which is established if the negative gradient of g, - [nabla] g = (-[t.sub.1], -[t.sub.2]) is rotated into ([MATHEMATICAL EXPRESSION NOT REPRODUCIBLE IN ASCII]).
This is achieved by that the belt press is provided with the additional rotor installed in housing parallel to the first rotor, and the additional comb with working faces placed in tangential planes of the rotors and forming the molding chamber.
However, it's more likely that you'll see ellipses because you'll still need to adjust the tilt of the primary somewhat on the sagittal or tangential planes, or both.
Symmetry cells were placed along the axis of the model to produce the effect of having 20 tangential planes over 360 degrees.
