It was demonstrated that for the 60/40 PP/PA6 blend, the PM domains are transformed from large particles to short striations and to small droplets finally in shear mixing, whereas the morphology develops through transitions from lamellas to thick striations and finally to a partially continuous structure in chaotic mixing.
Key words: edge detection; firearms identification; morphology; topography; striation mark.
Five ultrasculpture types, and a smooth condition of the surface have also been documented (Marss accepted): (1) fine striation on Thelodontiformes, Shieliiformes, Phlebolepidiformes, and Barlowodidae, (2) wavy transverse lamellae on Furcacaudiformes, (3) irregular polygons on Oeselia, (4) irregular micronodules, and (5) short v-shaped slits, both on the scales of yet undescribed Canadian thelodonts.
Further, the initial abrasive wheel used for scarf-grinding tends to leave striations that could lead to the development of cracks.
It is important to note that, despite its "continuous variation," jazz begins in or develops out of striation, out of the common melody upon which it improvises.
The ballasts are also designed for stable output, providing smooth dimming with minimal flicker or striation.

Most frequently used to measure the degree of mixing in a system are gross uniformity and intensity of segregation [1], scale of segregation [26], and striation thickness [27].
For example, the layer formation law for the Kenics static mixer is based on the idea that the Kenics behaves just as a Baker's map in which the number of striations doubles through each mixer element and the thickness of each striation is cut in half.
