From the equation above, we know that the curvature and torsion expression of general spiral line is too complicated.
Malek Salhab, senior manager of projects at Damac, commented: "The curvature of structure makes it unique, and it is perhaps the second or third-highest building in the city.
The tool, in the standard configuration, targets measurement of the 3D topography, and radii of curvature of X ray and optics having radii of curvature in excess of 100 m, however samples of smaller radii of curvature can be also measured.
Using a transition curve with a gradually changing curvature instead of a circular curve with a constant curvature allows the high speed vehicles to enter the curves more safe without decreasing their velocities.
n] (since the conformal curvature tensor vanishes identically for n = 3, we assume the condition n > 3 throughout the paper) and proved that such a manifold is of quasi-constant curvature.
The set of solutions of this equation is also called the curvature diagram or the W-diagram of the surface.
Due to seam curvature and a certain accuracy with which the seam should be joined, the number of required reactions will become greater than the maximum number of reactions.
They all have well-behaved distance functions which give rise to the curvature of the space and these curved spaces provide the link to understanding such geometrical ideas as geodesics, curvature, topology, embedded surfaces in Euclidean 3-space, and abstract surfaces with Riemannian metrics.
A less commonly observed and diagnosed cause of nasal obstruction is extreme internal curvature of the lower lateral cartilage (LLC), in which the natural horseshoe-shaped curvature of the LLC is so acute that the LLC itself curves into the nasal airway and thus contributes to the reduction of nasal airflow through the vestibule.
The female backbone is so flexible that the curvature of a woman becomes more pronounced when she's pregnant.
Children with cancer have a higher prevalence of body abnormalities, such as asymmetric lower limbs and curvature of the spine, suggesting that the genetic defect responsible for the abnormality may play a role in the development of cancer, a study has concluded.
