This work analyzes the effects of Dwell Time variations on pollutant emissions and combustion noise for a 4 cylinder light duty Diesel engine run at relatively low load: 2 injections (Pilot, Main) and 3 injections (Pilot, Pre, Main) strategies have been investigated.
In Case 3, the increase in the bus travel time at road sections exceeds or equals the total increase in the travel time spent at intersections and in the dwell time at stops.
The median dwell time for PICCs was 11 days, compared with 25 days for the tunneled catheters, a significant difference.
In order to depict the switching signal [sigma](t), we introduce the definition of dwell time.
(b) Dwell Times. The same analyses were conducted to assess whether COG fixations would reduce the dwell times of stimulus fixations into the same cluster.
If there exist a set of positive definite symmetric matrices [P.sub.i], i [member of] I, such that [A.sup.T.sub.i] [P.sub.i] + [P.sub.i][A.sub.i] < -[lambda][P.sub.i], [for all][P.sub.i], [for all]i [member of] I, and [P.sub.i] [less than or equal to] [mu][P.sub.j], i [not equal to] j, [for all]i, j [member of] I, then, system (1) is GUAS for any switching law [sigma](t) [member of] [D.sub.[tau]], where dwell time satisfies [tau] > [[tau].sup.*] = ln [mu]/[lambda].
That is proportional to the user's dwell time, and is inversely proportional to the page size.
Casey, who originated the imperative to balance the force, said that changes to the Army--the drawdown in Iraq and growing the force--have helped to improve the Army's balance and to increase dwell time. However, he said more work is needed in order to "prepare for the next decade of persistent conflict against a persistent enemy."
"This innovation helps our customers reduce total cost by substantially decreasing necessary dwell time to obtain required seal strengths," said Bob Flaherty, innovation engineer for Ampac.
THE process of drawing down and resetting equipment in Iraq to meet the 2011 pull-out deadline set by the president must not affect Soldier dwell time, according to the Army's top logisticians.
Multiple drum driers are ideal for applications requiring high line speed, extended dwell time and in-line temperature profiling for drying, thermal bonding or cooling.
Additionally, the device controls individual blade temperature, closed and open diameter and dwell time. Custom-designed and interchangeable fluting and wrapping modules accommodate a wide range of balloon diameters and lengths for increased production capacity.
