The transducer then produces sound wave trains into the liquid inside the cell.
The significance of this analysis is in that some time patterns of the wave trains can be considered as periodical plots and/or as a superposition of periodical plots.
Featuring a catamaran hull and a water jet propulsion system, the Wave Train is the first boat of its kind to be produced for the oil and gas industry.
There is apparently some hope that the careful shaping of the underwater hull can suppress the bow wave, at least at particular critical speeds, by creating interfering wave trains.
An initially small hump in a nearly monochromatic wave train corresponding to finite values of [absolute value of [eta]] is thus amplified significantly as [absolute value of [eta]] [right arrow] 0.
When large numbers of waves are generated by the same phenomenon--a strong storm, say, or an ocean current--they travel in groups called wave trains.
The Wave Train has been tested with the Water Bridge since October and trials are almost complete.
x) Opposing waves and currents: When a swell wave train opposes a wind wave train and these converge ffith a strong ocean current, then very dangerous overall wave conditions ire possible.
Alnmaritec - the aluminium work boat specialist - developed the 60ft Wave Train 1600 vessel to ferry crews to offshore oil rigs.
If we accept, that the amplitude of minimum measurable wave train can be about N = 100 bits, then it follows that described sensor SR4 can be used for monitoring the rotation vibration with amplitude at least [10.
