In addition to a trophy modeled after the Jefferson Disk wheel cypher and a Cryptex (coined from the fictional writings of author Dan Brown's "The DaVinci Code"), award recipients receive a cash prize of USD 10,000 each.
Tenders are invited for Abrasive Rail Cutting Disk Wheel As Per Rdso Spec.
Pedaling with his body curled up in a tight ball, with the aerodynamic rear disk wheel bearing the rainbow-colored stripes earned by the world champion, he maintained a steady pace on the flats, hugged the edge of the road on curves, and squatted on his bike's top tube to reduce wind drag on the descents.
The book is filled with a wealth of useful information, for example rubbing a thin film of toothpaste on the inside of swimming goggles and rinsing it allegedly stops the goggles fogging up, and that a disk wheel on a bike results in less resistance and turbulence and effectively propels the rider forward to a small degree in a tailwind or sidewind.
The first idealization is a metal reinforced polymer disk wheel that is examined analytically to develop general warpage formulae relating disk temperature to warpage initiation, and its subsequent increase as the thermal load on the disk is increased.
The first, a circular polymer disk wheel is useful for analysis of the warpage mechanism and is referred to as the disk wheel.
The disk wheel model [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 2 OMITTED], designed to minimize the impact of radial stress, is shaped like a circular disk wheel with metal spokes that are contoured into flat strips, laid in the plane of the disk and emanating from a very small rigid circular metal disk placed at the wheel center.
When the disk wheel model is heated or cooled, the annular polymer strips covering its surface attempt to expand or contract.
This strain-energy decomposition is a key to understanding the warpage mechanism; it will be applied to the disk wheel model where the rate of increase in bending energy with warpage remains constant, but the rate of reduction of in-plane extension-compression energy with possible warpage increases with "temperature load.
It was a shiny, black single-seated model, with solid disk wheels, a hard, black top, and a sun visor spread across the windshield.
When we got to San Francisco, The Flivver looked as if it had crossed the Sahara Desert--the glossy black frame and disk wheels were covered with dust.
Remains of disk wheels found in their graves suggest that these outsiders introduced carts and chariots to the Chinese, he theorizes.
