dAMP

Abbreviation for deoxyadenylic acid.

damp

(damp),
1. Humid; moist.
2. Atmospheric moisture.
3. Foul air in a mine; air charged with carbon oxides (black or choke damp) or with various explosive hydrocarbon vapors (firedamp).

damp

Etymology: AS, vapor
a potentially lethal atmosphere in caves and mines. Black damp or choke damp is caused by absorption of the available oxygen by coal seams. Fire damp is composed of methane and other explosive hydrocarbon gases. White damp is another name for carbon monoxide.

Patient discussion about damp

Q. Can I catch pneumonia, if I go outside with wet hair? My Mother used to tell me when I was a kid that if I go outside with wet hair, I will catch pneumonia. Is this true?

A. Are you seiously, Ann? I mean, I'm sure y're wet hair make Pneumonia?...I sorry this is not true.

Q. why is it bad to walk outside with wet hair after you have taken a shower , when it's clod out side? what can happen to me if i will do it ?

A. I've done this several times. The few times, my mother told me not to, I caught a cold.

Q. My brother is a heavy alcoholic. He has very recently been diagnosed with wet brain. My brother is a heavy alcoholic. He has very recently been diagnosed with wet brain. I am wondering what this wet brain is all about?

A. It known as Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome also referred to as wet brain often is seen in later stage alcoholics. This condition shows up on an MRI as a smaller less functional brain. The symptoms such as short term memory loss, inability to learn new things, inability to concentrate or focus could apply to a lot of things. I have never known people actually diagnosed with this. This knowledge I gained through surfing the net.

Table 8 shows the dimensionless frequencies of shearrigid Beck's columns subjected to follower forces 1% more or less than the damped flutter loads, which are [P.
It is apparent from the sign of the real part of frequencies in Table 8 that the system is stable under a follower force less than the damped flutter load but unstable under a follower force more than the damped load.
Lastly, three damped Beck columns subjected to a lateral impulse force are analyzed under the same conditions as in Figure 8, except that the shear parameter S is increased and the damping ratio is fixed at 2%.
A dimensionless frequency equation of shear-flexible and damped Beck's columns under a subtangential follow force was analytically derived in a closed form.
2) To construct a dimensionless stability map of shear-flexible and damped Beck's columns, external and internal damping can be estimated from Case 3 without introduction of additional parameters.
5) Dimensionless stability maps of shear-flexible and damped Beck's columns can be constructed using an analytical approach or a FE approach.
