Therefore, changes of histogram shapes at measurements of light flow fluctuation are again related with axial rotation of the Earth.
Rathonyi and coworkers (17) similarly demonstrated that cage fixation alone provides good stability in flexion and lateral bending, but that translaminar fixation improves stabilization, particularly in extension and axial rotation.
We used customized software (MATLAB 2009b, MathWorks; Natick, Massachusetts) to compute the trunk movement using a Cardan angle sequence (ZXY, along a anterior/posterior axis [x], superior/inferior axis [y], and medial/lateral axis [z] acting to flex/extend [z], lateral rotation [x], and axial rotation [y] with respect to the laboratory coordinate system) and shoulder movement using a Euler angle sequence (YXY along plane of elevation [y], amount of elevation [x], and internal/external rotation [y] for the shoulder coordinate system acting with respect to the trunk coordinate system).
Problems inherent with typical 3D camera rigs such as axial rotation issues can be easily corrected," said Poirier.
The spine functions to provide axial support and motion to the upper body, including flexion-extension, lateral bending and axial rotation.
As the subsequent reduction of pressure does not cause screw to return to a vibration-free axial rotation, it has been postulated that the origin of this behavior is the misalignment of the screw mounting in the gearbox sleeve, once the screw is deeply pushed by the die pressure it stay there independently of the pressure reduction.
Dennis and his colleagues found that mobile-bearing knees allow for a wider range of axial rotation without creating excessive polyethylene stresses.
The heads have axial rotation of 45-degree angles, and the activation arm on rotating lever units can be repositioned at 15-degree angle intervals.
in June 1876 and obtained the doctor's deg ree in 1879 with a thesis on Nieuwe bewijzen voor de aswenteling der aarde (New proofs for the axial rotation of the earth) based on his work with Kirchhoff.
9] Also, the horizontally oriented facet joints and capsules between the atlas and axis can be affected by accentuated axial rotation, which can injure the alar ligaments.
The unique Allpax Stretch 2402 at The NFL offers saturated steam, steam air overpressure, water immersion, water spray, and water cascade processes in combination with seven easily changeable modular agitation modes -- still, end-over-end, swinging, Gentle Motion shaking (low-speed), The Shaka Process([R]) shaking (high-speed), hydrostatic simulation, and axial rotation.
One of the most important features of our products is the final mixing element that eliminates all of the axial rotation of the flow downstream of the mixer," said Nolan Smith/Senior Applications Specialist.
