The pressure-time history and the total impulse for each charge were recorded using pressure transducers which were installed at different locations on the test setup.
Instead, to keep reliability high, the thrusters feature solenoid values that simply open and close to control the total impulse on the vehicle.

Therefore, the purpose of the present study was to evaluate the acute effects of unilateral ankle plantar flexors SS on (1) the sEMG (integral EMG {IEMG}, [IEMG.sub.pre.activition]) and jump performance (jump height, total impulse, time to peak force, contact time) of nonstretched lower limbs during SBDJ tasks, and (2) time course and extent of sEMG (IEMG, [IEMG.sub.pre-activation]), passive ROM and jump performance (jump height, total impulse, time to peak force, contact time) of the stretched lower limb with healthy adult males.
It would be a toss up between a Wispa Gold chocolate bar and my cute purple billabong hoody which was a total impulse buy.
Frequency tailoring also enables the sensors to capture both peak pressure and total impulse calculations.
Applications include measuring blast pressure in free-field or closed bunker arenas to obtain peak pressure, total impulse, shock wave and time-of-arrival measurements often used to study blast effects on structures, vehicles and humans.
