transmissibility

[tranz‚mis·ə′bil·əd·ē]
(mechanics)
A measure of the ability of a system either to amplify or to suppress an input vibration, equal to the ratio of the response amplitude of the system in steady-state forced vibration to the excitation amplitude; the ratio may be in forces, displacements, velocities, or accelerations.

Figure 3 shows the relationship between the vibration transmissibility ([a.sub.2]/[a.sub.1z], the responses [a.sub.2x], [a.sub.2y], and [a.sub.2z] in directions x, y, and z were used), phase angle (only in direction z), and the vibration frequency in a vertical excitation drive (in direction z, [a.sub.1z]).
* Transmissibility is around 0.35, after some time it reduced to 0.08, which is indicating the loosening effect of nut and bolts.
In SHM, transmissibility has been used directly [9], or incorporated with other approaches, such as neural networks [10], discriminant analysis [11] and so on.
All the results in this study are illustrated in transmissibility plot.
Therefore, WHO has offered its assistance to mobilize international expertise to Saudi Arabia and UAE to investigate the current outbreaks in order to determine the transmission chain of this recent cluster and whether there is any evolving risk that may be associated with the current transmissibility pattern of the virus.

The 15 selected papers discuss such topics as hydraulic testing, flow rate measurement, water vapor diffusion through polymeric barriers, measuring interface transmissibility, peel and shear test comparison and geosynthetic clay liner shear strength correlation, boundary effects of the gripping system on internal shear strength tests, and the geosynthetic concrete composite mat.
Based on published formulas, our estimated increase of 0.4 [log.sub.10] copies/mL in viral set point corresponds to a potential 44% increase in transmissibility," Dr.
The Lens Profiler instrument is unique in that it measures thickness, oxygen transmissibility and power of hydrated contact lenses in one instrument, and sets a new standard for soft contact lens metrology.
