This is for the laboratory to characterize the evolution of surfaces and interfaces, during fast and very fast transient phenomena, thermal, thermomechanical and vibratory.
In other words, grasping the three-dimensional total picture of the transient phenomena is difficult, although we were able to partially elucidate some of the symptoms.
An investigation found that transient Adjoint theory is mathematically feasible and can be applied to calculate the design variable sensitivity of cost functions for transient phenomena over designated time periods.
There are various numerical TD methods such as finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) or TD integral equation approaches, but these numerical solutions for analyzing transient phenomena become intractable when the pulse width of transient incident field is very narrow compared with the geometrical dimensions of scattering object.
People can automate their maps to record traffic problems, hazardous conditions, or other transient phenomena. Building GPS into phones and adding a Wi-Fi location service, subscribers can locate each other in crowded downtowns and easily rendezvous at the nearest Starbucks.
The goal of this research was to provide methodologies for avoiding these transient phenomena. The authors reviewed of two-phase flow regimes, analyzed the generic causes and resulting pressure surges of CIS, and reported the critical flow regimes that may occur in industrial refrigeration systems.
This is useful for examining transient phenomena and in the design of periodically controlled equipment.

With its 28-metre size mirror and height of a 20 storey building when pointing up, the new telescope will be able to slew twice as fast as the smaller telescopes to immediately respond to fast and transient phenomena such as gamma ray bursts anywhere in the sky.
Cataloged as PTF 10fqs, and visible as a yellow-orange star in the top-left corner of this image, it was first spotted by the Palomar Transient Facility, which scans the skies for sudden changes in brightness (or transient phenomena, to use astronomers' jargon).
Pan-STARRS, short for Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System, scans the entire night sky for all kinds of transient phenomena, including supernovae.
Therefore, it may be expected that dynamical transient phenomena may be identified not only in rotating parts but also in vertical oscillations.
