Etymology: Gk, elektron + magnes, lodestone; L, inducere, to bring in
the production of electric current in a circuit when it is passed through a changing magnetic field.

Finally, appropriate conditions for the fabrication design of MREs, such as the CIP volume fraction and induced current with respect to the desired shear modulus variation rate for MREs based on NR, are proposed as guidelines.
According to Lenz's Law, which describes the direction of induced currents in the presence of varying fields, the induced currents oppose the change in applied magnetic field and possess a unique field of its own.
This can be explained by the fact that induced current densities are higher also near the electrodes as shown in Fig.
When the magnet achieves terminal speed, the rate at which work is done by gravity on the magnet equals the rate of joule heat production by induced currents in the tube.
It is assumed that the magnetic field produced by the induced currents in the conducting plate do not interfere with the field set up by the conductors.
Induced current and particle charge density tests were conducted on the horizontal pipe.
Just as a trained ear can pick up a familiar voice in a crowd, they suggest, so a cell might respond to an induced current as a signal.
This design causes the induced current to loop around each segment and creates the required magnetic field in the metallic charge.
The maximum induced current in the culture medium was calculated by using either numerical simulation techniques or the analytical expression for an insulated rectangular box (27).
Igneous rock has a high level of electrical resistance, which encourages geomagnetically induced currents to flow in the power-transmission lines situated above the rock.
The interaction of induced currents in the earth with the conductive bodies we hope to image (such as the melt column) affects the electric and magnetic fields over a wide region of seafloor.
The two Perattas (both Wessex Institute of Technology) investigate the behavior of electric fields and induced currents in the human body exposed to different scenarios of extremely low-frequency, high-voltage, low-current electromagnetic fields.
