The seals are formed from folded stacks, discrete segments, or pleated material arranged to provide a resiliently compressible seal that can be located at one or more locations within the absorbent article, e.g., along a central portion of the rear waist region of a diaper.
Abstract: In this paper we present a calculus algorithm for the study of the compressible fluid's stationary motion through profile grids, on an axial-symmetric flow-surface, in variable thickness of stratum.
