NASA studies helped scientists observe how the pulses or oscillations in solar flares affect Earth's atmosphere.
The main control objective is to move the trolley to a required position as fast as possible with low payload oscillation (Elbadawy, Shehata 2015; Majid et al.
An analytical solution in the complex form for the dimensionless shear stresses in the fluid is presented in terms of the Hartmann number, the suction/injection velocity parameter, the Reynolds number, the dimensionless velocity amplitude of oscillation in the x- and y- directions, the ratio of the frequency of oscillation to the angular velocity of the disks, and the dimensionless time.
The quasi-biennial oscillation is the stratospheres Old Faithful, said Paul Newman, Chief Scientist for Earth Sciences at NASAs Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, Maryland, and lead author on a new paper about the event published online in Geophysical Research Letters.
The projection of the oscillation rotated in the same direction (counterclockwise) for all conditions (reaching different directions) for all subjects.
Background: To study the characters of high-frequency oscillations (HFOs) in the seizure onset zones (SOZ) and the nonseizure onset zones (NSOZ) in the electrocorticography (ECoG) of patients with neocortical epilepsy.
Two of the data segments show a long-lasting fast oscillation with multiple maxima during the 24-hour interval (recording dates: 20 November 2009 [data segment 1], 21 November 2009 [data segment 2]).
Thornhill (1997) proposed an offline method augmentation to this detection procedure by looking at power spectrums to distinguish between a tuning problem and a limit-cycle oscillation caused due to nonlinearities, such as valve friction.
Stress oscillation is a rare phenomenon and can be triggered only for several semi-crystalline polymers at a certain testing temperature, because it appears to be controlled by strain-induced oriented crystallization and related local heat release [4, 5], Amorphous PET exhibits stress oscillation in air at room temperature, but it presents no oscillation under water.
Oscillation is the repetitive variation, typically in time, of some measure about a central value (often a point of equilibrium) or between two or more different states.
Prior to all oscillation analyses, Pmo(t) data were normalized to the last recorded pressure in order to avoid the possible effect of interruptions, occurring at different flows [18-21].
Peak pressures, contact areas, center of pressure (COP) oscillation areas, anterior-posterior and medio-lateral COP oscillations, and velocities were compared between two shoe conditions (barefoot versus slippers) and among the different poses.
Then with the ground approaching quickly and perhaps even after a bounce, he pulls back and magnifies the oscillation even more.
On some aspects of oscillation theory and geometry.
