(sī′nŭs-oyd) [″ + Gr. eidos, form, shape]
1. Resembling a sinus.
2. A large, permeable capillary, often lined with macrophages, found in organs such as the liver, spleen, bone marrow, and adrenal glands. Their permeability allows cells or large proteins to easily enter or leave the blood.

Caption: Figure 4: Generation of high ER pulses for a high SNR [phi]-OTDR using the nonlinear Kerr effect [20]: (a) schematic of the generation, (b) CW light from laser, (c) sinusoidally modulated signal, (d) signal after pulse modulation, (e) signal after nonlinear Kerr medium, and (f) after filtering the nth order sideband (P(t) in all cases stands for the power of the signal).
The time series SPL data of the actual aeroacoustic noise was measured with only the airfoils operated sinusoidally over [+ or -]15[degrees] and compared with those for quasi-steady predicted SPL (Fig.

It is known (Hyndman and Athanasopoulos, 2013) that the process is ARMA(p,0) at p>0 if the ACF drops down exponentially or sinusoidally and the partial autocorrelation function (PACF) has a significant spike at p, and that the process is ARMA(0,q) at q>0 if the PACF drops down exponentially or sinusoidally and the ACF has a significant spike at q.

In oscillatory shearing in between two parallel disks the shear strain, [gamma], varies sinusoidally with time, t, at a frequency of co, i.e., [gamma] = [[gamma].sup.0] sin([omega]t), where [y.sup.0] is the strain amplitude, i.e., [[gamma].sup.0] = [theta]D/h([theta] is the angular displacement, D is the disk diameter, and h is the gap in between the two disks).
