The aim of this study was to determine the frequency, origin and variations of the PCBMN and its clinical implications during surgery while evaluating its anatomical relations to the FDS, FCR and the fourth metacarpal axial line.
Figures 11 and 12 describe the effect of particle motion on the pressure distribution in two investigated lines, the LCA-LAD axial line and the LCA-LCX axial line as shown in Figures 6(b) and 6(c).
Although section AB of the buried pipeline is stretched by the subsidence zone, subsidence deformation exerts no influence to the surrounding soil mass; accordingly, the pipeline-soil frictional force pointing to the nonsubsidence zone along the axial line of the buried pipeline is generated (Figure 7).
The distributions of temperature, velocity, and reaction rate in the exhaust plume flow field on the different distance cross sections of the axial line and the symmetrical plane are shown in Figures 6(a), 6(b), and 6(c).
However, we are concerned with the deflections on x-axis (center line or axial line) as shown in Figure 1(b), and the deflections can be read by FEM directly.
