the vertical stability is lower than the lateral one with the vehicle with the same velocity and mass.
Vertical stability was estimated using the Brunt-Vaisala frequency ([N.sup.2] = [g/[rho]]*[d[rho]/dz], where g = gravity, p = water density, and z = depth).
Overall, the application of the FRP wraps enhances the vertical stability of a pier system due to the major improvement in the stiffness.
Variable Equation APSI [square root of ([SIGMA][(0 - GRFx).sup.2]/Number of data point)] / Body Weight MLSI [square root of ([SIGMA][(0 - GRFy).sup.2]/Number of data point)] / Body Weight VSI [square root of ([SIGMA][(0 - GRFz).sup.2]/Number of data point)] / Body Weight DPS [square root of ([SIGMA][(0 - GRFx).sup.2] + [SIGMA][(0 - GRFx).sup.2] + [SIGMA] [(Body Weight - GRFz).sup.2]/Number of data point)] / Body Weight DPSI : Dynamic Postural Stability Index ; APSI : Anterior-posterior stability index; MLSI: Medial-lateral stability index; VSI: Vertical stability index ; GRF : Ground Reaction Force Table 2.
The material's thixotropic properties enable it to dispense easily, avoid slumping on vertical surfaces during assembly, and--after curing--maintain its vertical stability, even after long use, the company adds.
The material's excellent thixotropic properties enable it to dispense easily, avoid slumping on vertical surfaces during assembly, and, after cure, maintain its vertical stability even after long use, according to the company.
The time step was set equal to 120 seconds to fulfil the Courant-Friedrichs-Lewy (CFL) condition for horizontal and vertical stability and the first 24 hours were discarded as spin-up time of the model.
Pending the adoption of the STAC proposal by the ITER Council on 20-21 November, the ITER di-vertor will be equipped with tungsten (W) targets right from the start of operations, and two in-vessel coil systems (the ELM control and the vertical stability coils), will be in the ITER Baseline.
The ultrasound sensors analyze the flight altitude (up to 6 meters), while the pressure sensor provides vertical stability. With the 3D magnetometer, the device knows its precise orientation with respect to the smartphone, which becomes its reference point.
This fast, reliable clear coat also offers excellent vertical stability improves results in the spray booth; its high gloss gives vehicles an outstanding finish and long-lasting durability.
However, it is noted that vertical stability should also be considered at comparison of the stability of roadheaders, since the longitudinal-head-type roadheader can cut vertically as well [5].
