Caption: Fillers can upset the balance of frictional drag between the barrel and screw, hindering movement of the material down the barrel, unless compensating measures are taken.
It is of interest that virtually all the indicators of equilibrium vacancy rate exceed 5%, which is the industry standard for frictional vacancy.
When, the steel plate starts sliding over steel platform, then the force of gravitational pull is equal to the frictional force between steel plates [1-3].
Inertial and frictional forces are the major reasons that shotshell propellants are engineered for the short, fast push and rifle propellants are designed to create the long, slow push.
As previously mentioned, dynamic friction or slip of the polymer melt at the die wall may produce an increase in its temperature, which has been recognized by some authors [9, 19, 20] as frictional or slip heating to distinguish it from the well-known viscous heating.
Part of the frictional torque arises in engine timing systems when the timing chain moves over an element that keeps it under tension.
2) Standardize, standardize, standardize: Improving the consistency of catastrophe-bond structures would help lower frictional costs by cutting the time and effort needed to structure and market a deal.
In a typical laboratory experiment to measure the frictional coefficient of ice, cylinders of ice are rotated against one another and their resistance to rotation is measured.
Our analysis demonstrates that this feature places limits on catastrophe bond penetration, even if the structure possesses frictional cost advantages over reinsurance.
Therefore, the aim of this study was to compare frictional resistance obtained by low-friction elastomeric ligatures and conventional ligatures in the presence of artificial saliva, and observe whether this variable changed after 21 days.
Frictional resistance among the members of the joints caused by pretension substantially increased the initial slip resistance and hysteretic damping.
This technology makes it possible to reduce frictional losses by at least 30%, even when compared with the most efficient traditional bearings, and by as much as 50% or more, when the comparison is with older product designs.
