The theoretical air flow rate can be calculated with equation (3).
Very high flow rate may cause ineffective fluid warming due to short transit time.
Figure 3 shows transmittance spectra of the ITO thin films deposited under different oxygen flow rates. The transmittance of the ITO thin films is not a function of the oxygen flow rate, but all samples are over 85% in the visible region.
The objectives of this work were as follows: (a) to evaluate operational characteristics of PRVs based on requirements stated by ISO 10522 (1993) and (b) to model the regulated pressure as a function of inlet pressure and flow rate through the valve considering hysteresis.
For microtube length and diameter, defined according to characteristics of the project or availability of material, one must calculate the pressure necessary at the inlet of the last emitter of the lateral line to obtain a pre-defined flow rate (Eq.
A literature search on the effect of blood flow rate on dialysis clearance, dialysis adequacy contributors, and the implications of dialysis adequacy on patient morbidity and mortality was conducted using a computerized search of peer-reviewed research studies, opinion articles, and literature reviews within the health and medicine databases of ProQuest.
In the first test, which was considered standard, six flow rate tests were performed in the same drippers, previously identified, every 100h.
In standing position the maximum flow rate was 32.4+-9.6 ml/sec, average flow rate 8.8+-16.9 ml/sec, and post-void residue was 8.8+-16.9ml.
Salivary flow rate can be obtained with or without stimulus, that is the stimulated and the unstimulate salivary flow.
Therefore, an experimental investigation in the influence of coolant air flow rate, inlet water flow rate and temperature, and type of utilized packing has been accomplished.
The correlation between the main flow rate and the horizontal flow rate is graphically represented in Figure 2, and it was found that as the horizontal flow increases, the primary flow rates also increase.
