For instance, blue, flag, greenblotched, halfbanded, pinkrose, squarespot, and vermilion rockfishes, and bocaccio were all significantly less abundant in areas with either no horizontal beam or where that structure was not well exposed (exposures 0 and 1).
Substitution (1) in (2) establishes connection between reactions on horizontal beam and cable with abutments on different heights: [R.sub.B1] = [R.sub.B] - H x tg[beta] Reaction on abutment A : [R.sub.A1] = [R.sub.A] + H x tg[beta] From cross-section C follows:
What lets the CR-Z down are tiny rear seats with such little leg space that they are useless even for small kids and a frustrating horizontal beam separating the two rear windscreens which obstructs vision.
A second horizontal beam is then seen in the plane of the crystalline lens (Figure 2a).
On the down side, the rear seats are only big enough for young children as leg and headroom is very restricted and the horizontal beam separating the two rear windscreens obstructs vision.
4), was applied as a distributed load on 80% of the beam length (laterally, on one side, on the superior horizontal beam, parallel to the longitudinal axis of the cabin).
Loads are supported by two parallel horizontal steel supports bolted to four vertical supports, one at each end of the horizontal beam. The height of each bay is determined by the maximum height of the loads that will be stored in them.
Unlike traditional horizontal beam saws that have a pusher equipped with multiple grippers in fixed positions to accommodate complex cutting patterns, the PM System employs two types of optimized, self-positioning grippers.
This apparent contradiction is resolved once it is seen that this is really a cross - the vertical part of it represents life and the horizontal beam stands for death.
There are also planar arrays in which the antennas are arrayed both vertically and horizontally to provide control of both the vertical and horizontal beam width and steering by the phase shifters.
