The lowest values of half-life time were obtained for grains of the hybrids GSS 41499 and GSS 42072, which stand out for having longer saturation time, as demonstrated in Table 1.
The numerical simulation results show that (1) when the magnet is charged in different rates, the magnetic field saturation time and excitation loss are different, so it is necessary to choose an appropriate charging rate to meet the engineering requirements and control the heat load; (2) when the magnetic field of PF coils affects the TF coils, the components of the thermal losses of the magnet are different from traditional insulating magnets.
The saturation time for different types of desiccants coated on the metal foam is presented in Figure 7b.
The saturation time was about 30 days, which was longer than that of distilled water immersion because of the ionic content of seawater, which can suppress the moisture transport process (Rangaraj 1999).
By saturation time in a decade or two, there could be a billion users.
The use of C|O.sub.2~ as a supercritical fluid instead of in its gaseous state is said to reduce saturation time, increase cell nucleation density, and improve control of foam cell size.
Therefore, this study aimed to determine the concentration and the saturation time of the ozone gas in rice grains and define the effective ozonation time for microbiological disinfection.
In (7), ETR is the energy throughput ratio and [t.sub.sat] the saturation time which describes the level of compensation.
The oil-absorbing resin structure, oil-absorption rate, oil-absorption saturation time, submicroscopic structure, and oil-absorption kinetics were studied by using such methods as infrared (IR), TGA, and scanning electron microscopy (SEM).
This study reports the effects of saturation time (ST), saturation pressure (SP), and NaCl/polymer mass ratio (NaCl/PMR) on the scaffold density, porosity, average pore size, pore density (PD), and Young's modulus in compression using the biodegradable polymer 85/15 poly(DL-lactide-co-glycolide) acid.
