Any overheated motor may of course "seize" without warning; but so many complaints have reached us of accidents similar to yours while shooting the Aurora that we are inclined to believe with Lavalle that the upper strata of the Aurora Borealis are practically one big electric "leak," and that the paralysis of your engines was due to complete magnetization of all metallic parts.
In addition to the abstracts, eight full papers report original research into positron annihilation in ion-implanted zinc oxide, optical characteristics of tungsten oxide thin films prepared by the sputtering technique, magnetization mechanisms of nano-magnetic fluid, the clustering of arsenic atoms in silicon during low-temperature annealing, effects of current density on the composition and microstructure of an electrodeposited silicon diffusion layer, positron annihilation and micro-hardness measurement of 6063 and 6066 alloys with compromise in ingot aluminum, the stress-induced migration and trapping of hydrogen in AISI403 steel, and electromigration force on a proton with a bound state.
Figure 1 represents magnetization of PAAm (1), PAAm-Co (2C), PAAm-POH (3) and PAAm-Co-POH (4C) gels as function of the mass ratio, m/[m.
STT MRAM uses memory storage elements that take advantage of the effect inwhich a current that is passed through a magnetic material - such as a magnetic tunnel junction (MTJ)(3) - reverses its direction of magnetization (Figure 1).
While the intensity of magnetization needed for both is almost the same, the directions of magnetization differ: the values being -74 and 172 degrees respectively.
While in many cases the physical modeling has been limited to the properties related to the rolling directions, the use of computational methods in magnetic cores call for the knowledge of magnetization curve and hysteresis loops in directions that are different from rolling directions possibility of defining an intrinsic magnetization behavior in a [001](110) Fe Si (GO) single crystal is limited to the [001] and [0[bar.
The application-specific solvers can be used for design work on rotating machinery, superconducting magnets, particle beams, dielectric insulation, and magnetization or demagnetization processes.
Called DEMAG, the solver allows designers to optimize equipment designs by accurately simulating both the magnetization process, and the subsequent demagnetization effects that might be encountered.
The magnetic deformation signal is the product of the low magnetization signal minus a "scaled down" high magnetization level signal.
Plastalloy material can be magnetized using various magnetization methods including conventional, two-poles each side, multiple-poles, or custom solution to suit many medical and dental applications.
Plastalloy[TM] from The Electrodyne Company can be magnetized using various magnetization methods including conventional, two-poles each side, multiple-poles, or with custom magnetization patterns.
For nearly 50 years, the disk drive industry has focused nearly exclusively on a method called longitudinal magnetic recording, in which the magnetization of each data bit is aligned horizontally in relation to the drive's spinning platter.
