flux

 [fluks]
1. an excessive flow or discharge.
2. the rate of the flow of some quantity (or magnetic field) per unit area.
magnetic flux (Φ) a quantitative measure of a magnetic field.

flux

(flŭks),
1. The discharge of a fluid material in large amounts from a cavity or surface of the body.
See also: diarrhea.
2. Material discharged from the bowels.
3. A material used to remove oxides from the surface of molten metal and to protect it when casting; serves a similar purpose in soldering operations.
4. An ingredient in dental porcelain that by its lower melting temperature helps to bond the silica particles.
5. The moles of a substance crossing through a unit area of a boundary layer or membrane per unit of time. Synonym(s): flux density (1)
6. Bidirectional movement of a substance at a membrane or surface.
7. In diagnostic radiology, photon fluence per unit time.
8. The strength of a field of force (for example, magnetic) orthogonal to a unit area.
9. The rate of chemical or physical transformation or translocation of a substance per unit time.

Medicine The discharge of large quantities of fluid material from the body, especially the discharge of watery feces from the intestines.

flux

An MRI-centric term for the invisible lines of force that extend around a magnetic material, which are the most dense at the two poles of the magnet.

A variety of methods are available for production of aluminum powders and metallic aluminum from the melt but the most significant volumes of fine powders and metallic are prepared by using the high purity salt flux composition during the aluminum recovery process to improve coalescence of the molten aluminum.
The magnetic flux leakage measurement system consists of two main processes such as magnetization and magnetic measurement systems.
where [u.sub.*] = [([<u'w'>.sup.2] + [<v'w'>.sup.2]).sup.1/4] is the friction velocity, u', v', and w' are fluctuations in longitudinal, transversal, and vertical velocity components, respectively, T is air temperature, k is von-Karman's constant, g is the gravitational acceleration, and (w'T') is the covariance between vertical velocity and temperature fluctuations which represents the mean kinematic sensible heat flux. Based on MOST, the air temperature standard deviation can be expressed as follows:
This involves calculating an estimate of the motor's magnetic flux and torque based on the measured voltage and current of the motor.
The Laplace transform of (1) is used to calculate the flux linkages in the frequency domain.
Fluxes greater than 700 W [m.sup.-2] and lower than -30 W [m.sup.-2] for latent heat flux and higher than 500 W [m.sup.-2] and lower than -50 W [m.sup.-2] for sensible heat flux were considered as spurious data.
During the soldering process, flux compositions undergo different temperature gradients, chemical mixtures and reactions.
[Q.sub.c] is the incoming solar radiation flux in W[m.sup.-2] which reaches the water surface when the sky is clear; its Value can be achieved by the equation [Q.sub.c] = 0.7[Q.sub.I] sin[[theta].sub.N] and depends on the radiant angle, atmosphere conductivity coefficient in a clear sky (equal to 0.7), and the extent of the incoming radiation to atmosphere.
CircuitWorks flux remover pens from Intertronics include rosin flux, no-clean flux and lead-free flux removers to complete a series which is expected to be of advantage to prototyping, rework and re-configuring engineers throughout the electronics industry.
noticed that operations below the critical flux may not be sufficient in order to have zero fouling rates.
