The three results had all exceeded maximum load and were fully ductile, indicating the welds were on the upper shelf of the ductile to brittle transition curve at -10-degreeC.
The analytical phase transition curve is derived as follows.
Caption: FIGURE 3: (a) [C.sub.p] transition curve of [beta]-HaH in buffer 20 mM HEPES (pH 7.06 at 80[degrees]C), recorded at scan rate of 1[degrees]C[min.sup.-1] and different protein concentrations: 1.01 mg x [ml.sup.-1] (blue line), 1.91 mg x [ml.sup.-1] (red line), and 2.88 mg x [ml.sup.-1] (black line).
One typical segment with curve radius of 490 m and average gradient of 3.1% (-3.1% for downgrade) was selected, and the lengths of the spiral transition curve and circular curve section are 120 m and 305 m, respectively.
The optimal transition curve between one pump and two pump operations is the curve where the wire-to-water efficiencies of two operations are identical in the overlapped region covered by Z2, Z3, and Z4.
The selected level terrain curve section is a one-way traffic roadway with a transition curve of varying radii, located inside the main campus of University of Malaya, Malaysia.
Although we typically think of "denial" as a stage at a later point on the emotional transition curve (originally outlined in Elisabeth Kabler-Ross's grief cycle model), it can often have a "pre-echo" in the sense that people can deny not so much a particular change as a requirement for change in general.
Above the transition curve, the CHS flows in the transition and turbulent states, and under the transition curve, it is in the laminar state.
However, the design of a transition curve complicates the procedure considerably compared to the case of a simple circular arc.
These values are plotted as a transition curve. The point to be noted is that both groups of steel have relatively ductile failures and good shear facet to the fracture.
