In two dimensions, potential flow reduces to a very simple system that is analyzed using complex analysis (see below).Potential flow theory can also be used to model irrotational compressible flow.…

As part of her work in this direction, she studied differential geometry and Hodge theory eventually proving a nonlinear Hodge-DeRham theorem with Robert Sibner based on a physical interpretation of one-dimensional harmonic forms on closed manifolds.The techniques are related to her prior work on compressible flows.They kept working together on related problems and applications of this important work for many years.…

Deep foundations are used for structures or heavy loads when shallow foundations cannot provide adequate capacity, due to size and structural limitations.They may also be used to transfer building loads past weak or compressible soil layers.While shallow foundations rely solely on the bearing capacity of the soil beneath them, deep foundations can rely on end bearing resistance, frictional resistance along their length, or both in developing the required capacity.…

This is not of practical importance, because the body is mostly composed of barely compressible materials such as water.People often wonder whether scuba divers feel their body being crushed by the pressure, but divers would have to reach depths of thousands of feet before their flesh began to suffer significant compression.…

Also, square-profiled bumpers, which became standard until the end of the T2 in 1979, were introduced in 1973.Crash safety improved with this change because of a compressible structure behind the front bumper.This meant that the T2b was capable of meeting US safety standards for passenger cars of the time, though not required of vans.…

If the flow field is compressible, the above equations act as the standard temperature and density equations and pressure can be found as it is a function of them both.If, however the flow is in-compressible, the pressure is independent of density.Hence, coupling is necessary to induce a constraint on the solution.…

Hence, we see that the materials of the interior of the earth must be either metallic or very compressible.To assign a metallic nucleus to the earth, is repugnant to analogy; and it is not rendered even probable by facts, as we find volcanic emissions to contain no heavier elements than the sedimentary layers.…Cited from Outlines of a Mechanical Theory of Storms, by T. Bassnett

However, in order to allow a uniform air pressure even with only some nozzles, air bearing manufacturers take constructive techniques.In doing so, these air bearings cause dead volumes (non-compressible and thus weak air volume).In effect, this dead volume is very harmful for the air bearing's dynamic and causes self-excited vibrations.…

Generally, a block containing text information will be compressible.Archived, ZIPPED, or other compressed files will likely not be further condensed by this technique.…

An incompressible string is one that cannot be compressed because it lacks sufficient repeating sequences.Whether a string is compressible will often depend on the algorithm being used.Some strings are incompressible by any algorithm -- see Kolmogorov complexity.…

In the case of an incompressible flow the velocity potential satisfies Laplace's equation, and potential theory is applicable.However, potential flows also have been used to describe compressible flows.The potential flow approach occurs in the modeling of both stationary as well as nonstationary flows.…

The problem is then an incompressible low-speed aerodynamics problem.When the density is allowed to vary, the problem is called a compressible problem.…

Her hands and feet were not like Grace's, long and slender.They were tiny, but her hand was plump and white and might be compressible.It was undeniably pretty, and her foot was always so stylishly shod that its shape was outlined most attractively.…Cited from Marion's Faith, by Charles King

"No; if it had been compressible you would not have had that exhibition at the air pocket."Cited from The Wonder Island Boys: Exploring the Island, by Roger Thompson Finlay

In this case the flow can be modelled as an incompressible flow.Otherwise the more general compressible flow equations must be used.…

The fluid equation of state, often unimportant for incompressible flows, is vital in the analysis of compressible flows.Also, temperature variations for compressible flows are usually significant and thus the energy equation is important.…

Quantization, involved in image processing, is a lossy compression technique achieved by compressing a range of values to a single quantum value.When the number of discrete symbols in a given stream is reduced, the stream becomes more compressible.For example, reducing the number of colors required to represent a digital image makes it possible to reduce its file size.…

A system is considered to be a simple compressible one in the absence of certain effects which are uncommon in many engineering applications.These are electromagnetic and gravitational fields, surface tension, and motion.…

Gas is compressible and the density changes significantly with changes in pressure.Liquids, on the other hand, are considered to be incompressible and so their density does not tend to change with a change in pressure.…

The b direction of the crystal is the most compressible and the c direction is the least compressible.This can be explained by the orthorhombic structure.…
