The channels selected for analysis in thin sections
were those containing either a decaying root or organic coatings on their surfaces (Fig.
They are relatively small and difficult to recognize in the thin sections
After hardening, thin sections
were prepared in a manner similar to the procedure described by Camuti & McGuire (1999) and Carr & Lee (1998).
These methods were: (1) reading the external rings on the shell; (2) counting the growth rings on thin sections
of the hinge plate (chondrophore): and (3) counting growth rings of whole shell thin sections
One thin section
of each concentration was run on the EDXRF spectrometer and the Cu peak intensity noted, then another was placed on top of the first and the pair analyzed together.
For instance thin sections
are not as energy efficient as thick ones.
This is the only data handbook on the barrier and film properties of polymeric materials in thin sections
The completed thin sections
were examined with a petrographic (polarizing) microscope for the purpose of identifying constituent sand-size (2 to 0.
Using drill core samples from the mine we made thin sections
that could be studied for mineral content and analyzed for valuable information about the location of copper in the mine.
During the design process, CastView can be used to evaluate the possible locations of mold gates, vents, and overflow, and to determine where thick and thin sections
could affect the quality of the finished casting.
Although low-cost carbon granules, not fibers, are used in most applications, no one has yet sliced granules into thin sections
that would show the tiny pores, which are often only a few tenths of a nanometer wide, Mangun says.
