Figure 4 (right) shows that to reach low condensation qualities (< 0.3 for instance), the triangular channels require the minimum heat transfer length, while the maximum heat transfer length is required for the horizontal ellipse/circle ([D.sub.h] = 1.187 mm (0.0467 inch)).
According to Meier and Schroder [18], the selection of contact size depends on the current transfer length. The current transfer length depends on contact resistivity and sheet resistance; its impact on the parameters of solar cells is not fully understood.
This reason is related to the fact that contact size changes the current transfer length, which affects contact resistivity.
The length of each block falls into specific interval [l.sub.tr] [less than or equal to] [l.sub.cr] [less than or equal to] 2[l.sub.tr], where [l.sub.tr] is transfer length. It is reported (Bigaj 1999) that the average block length (crack spacing) could be in the range of 1.3 [l.sub.tr]-1.5 [l.sub.tr].
These linked-list engines offer a unique acquisition Gate Driven mode in which the gate duration determines the transfer length, eliminating the need for pre-set transfer lengths.
As part of its "Investigation of Development Length of Uncoated and Epoxy-Coated Prestressing Strand" project, the Federal Highway Administration recently concluded a series of experiments to determine the temperature at which epoxy softening causes slip, the effect of that slip on the stress in the strands and the transfer length, and the effect of cyclic temperature variations.
In reported literature, common definitions of length include "heat transfer length", "port to port length", "length between ports", "length of channel", "chevron area length", "distribution region length", and just "length".
A new approach based on the bond stress distribution through the transfer length between the zero-slip and the cracked sections is proposed.
The development length is made up of two components: transfer length and flexural bond length.
This results in increased performance, especially in environments that use extended transfer lengths or have many devices on a single bus.
