However, this test cannot describe the mechanical anisotropy of the normal human cornea accurately.
Dielectric analysis of the samples is conducted in two directions, normal (Figure 5(a)) and parallel to the bedding plane (Figure 5(b)), to investigate the dielectric anisotropy.
The chosen parameters were as follows: saturation magnetization [M.sub.S] = 1700 x [10.sup.3] A/m, exchange constant A = 21 x [10.sup.-12] J/m, anisotropy constant [K.sub.1] = 48 x [10.sup.3] J/[m.sup.3], Gilbert damping constant [alpha] = 0.1, and mesh diameter d = 5 nm.
Further, since the universe has now started accelerating, any kind of anisotropy will remain small in the late phase of cosmic acceleration.
In this paper, PFC2D was used to establish several sets of irregular sand particles, to reveal the formation and development mechanism of soil anisotropy, by simulating the biaxial compression numerical test of standard sand, and loading from the horizontal and vertical directions, respectively.
This is why it is so important to determine the anisotropy parameter, because it can be used to pin down the distribution of dark matter in this galaxy, which in turn depends on the nature of dark matter itself.
It is assumed that the anisotropy axis is orientated in the incidence plane under an arbitrary angle [beta] with the normal to the interface (Figure 1).
In this paper, we describe a 3D algorithm for modeling resistivity structures with arbitrary anisotropy. We used a tetrahedral element which can be easily implemented in the inversion program and investigated the effects of grids schemes and coarse meshes on the accuracy of numerical solutions.
Well known that for the glulam beams the scheme of orthogonal anisotropy, i.e.
Jason 9.5's Anisotropic Inversion product offers more options to improve anisotropy property estimates calibrated to well control for effective well design and optimum production.
Dry-blended carbon fiber-filled materials for Laser Sintering (LS) in particular, although incredibly strong and dense, can exacerbate anisotropy.
