Definitions for "Sinking"
Keywords:  excavation, shaft, luice, winze, trap
Controlling oil spills by using an agent to trap the oil and sink it to the bottom of the body of water where the agent and the oil are biodegraded.
The process of downward excavation. LUICE. A long inclined (one in twelve drop) trough through which water flows with gravel and dirt. If all works well gold is trapped by obstructions called riffles.
The process by which a shaft is driven.
The hammering of a flat piece of metal into a concave hemispherical shape in the top of a tree stump or any dished form.
Sinking is a metalworking technique whereby two-dimensional sheet stock is formed into a three-dimensional object by hammering it into a concave form. The technique is often used as a precursor to further raising. While sinking is a relatively fast method, it results in stretching and therefore thinning the metal, risking failure of the metal if it is 'sunk' too far.
Keywords:  whereat, mandrel, die, diameter, tool
In this procedure, the tube is drawn through a die without inner tool, whereat essentially only outside and inner diameter is reduced and the wall thickness can increase or decrease to a low extend depending on the reduction ratio.
A cold finishing operation to obtain exactly the desired diameter and/or to improve mechanical properties. Performed by pulling a tube through a hardened die without using an interior tool (mandrel).
a descent as through liquid (especially through water); "they still talk about the sinking of the Titanic"
Losing enough buoyancy to settle below the surface of the water.
Keywords:  npn, ouput, equivalent, solid, circuit
The term is used here to describe the way a switch is connected in the circuit. If the switch completes the electrical circuit by connecting the load to ground/(-) it is considered to be sinking the load. In a solid state device this is equivalent to a NPN ouput.
a feeling caused by uneasiness or apprehension; "with a sinking heart"; "a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach"
The absorption of paint medium by a lean underlayer to produce a matte or dead surface.
a slow fall or decline (as for lack of strength); "after several hours of sinking an unexpected rally rescued the market"; "he could not control the sinking of his legs"
