Figures 11 to 14 show the thermal patterns for [T.sub.a]=23[degrees]C, E=0.48 x [10.sup.-3] gm/[cm.sup.2]min, case I and stage V for different eccentricities [d.sub.1]=0, 0.
Changes at the surface and crown were noted for varied building storeys, 2, 4, and 8, at different eccentricities of 0 m, 5 m, 10 m, 15 m, and 20 m, from the tunnel centre line, for all three types of strata.
It explains not only the similarity of eccentricities and companion masses, but also their values.
Liberalism, in fact, is a similarly comedic project, aspiring to form or else return to a society in which all individuals behave innocently, attuned to their basic goodness, and have their eccentricities not only tolerated but welcomed and embraced.
It is shown that near-circular orbits can reach eccentricities with values up to 0.9.
MAD ROLE 3 Nanny Toni Collette tried to convince her young charges their eccentricities are to be celebrated
Furthermore, the FFT has been applied to the waveform of resulted RF when different eccentricities occur in the machine and is shown in Fig.
We have to be careful not to use cliches when talking about eccentricities, but basically it's looking at skills and attributes and natural resources and using them in a completely different way to the way that they have been used before and being really creative.
In addition to the Berlin event, where he may screen "Eccentricities," he wants to shoot another film, "The Strange Case of Angelica," in time for Cannes.
Obviously there are other ways to convert a measurement between 0 and 30 to a useful range of eccentricities. This method ensures that we do not have to cope with situations where e approaches zero and gives smoother control for the values of e between 0.5 and 2.
This behaviour is illustrated in Figure 9 where images are shown at different shaft eccentricities for a dimensionless time of [N.sub.R] = 1500 at Re = 7.5 (similar to the case presented in Figure 8).
