Definitions for "Sizing"
Keywords:  rosin, starch, stiffen, glue, abrasion
A weak glue used in various trades; size.
A generic term for compounds which are applied to yarns to bind the fiber together and stiffen the yarn to provide abrasion-resistance during weaving. Starch, gelatin, oil, wax, and man-made polymers such as polyvinyl alcohol, polystyrene, polyacrylic acid, and polyacetatates are employed.
This process can be applied on the surface of the sheet or in the sheet: in the first case starch is applied to the surface to increase its strength and to resist the penetration of oil-based inks (this process is carried out at the size press, which is about two-thirds of the way down the dry end); in the second case chemicals are added to the stock at the pulping stage before the sheet is formed: this is called internal or engine sizing and its purpose is to stop penetration of water-based inks into the sheet.
A final pressing of a sintered compact to secure desired size.
A preliminary guess with a wider degree of tolerance than an Estimate. The tolerance could be as wide as ± 50 percent.
Secondary forming or squeezing operations needed to square up, set down, flatten, or otherwise correct surfaces to produce specified dimensions and tolerances. See restriking. (2) Some burnishing, broaching, drawing, and shaving operations are also called sizing. (3) A finishing operation for correcting ovality in tubing. (4) Final pressing of a sintered powder metallurgy part.
Calculation of the heat loss and heat gain for a building at "design temperatures" (those close to the maximum and minimum temperatures anticipated for a given location) in order to select heating and cooling equipment of sufficient capacity. Installing excess equipment capacity, or oversizing, is common but leads to inefficient operation and, for air conditioners, decreases the dehumidification. Calculations are most often done according to the ACCA Manual-J (or similar) procedure.
Since piece is cast oversized to allow for shrinkage, the 1st sanding grinds piece to size with wet coarse grit sander belt. In the 2nd sanding step, sizing process continues with medium grit belt. The purpose of the 3rd sanding step with fine grit belt is to properly prepare piece for a smooth, flawless finish.
The procedure a heating contractor goes through to determine how large a system is needed to heat a house efficiently. Too small a system will not deliver enough heating; too large a system increases energy costs and can have an adverse effect on comfort. Sizing depends on the square footage of a home, the amount of ceiling and wall insulation, the window area, use of storm doors and storm windows, etc.
Refers to the procedure a heating contractor goes through to determine how large a furnace (measured in btuh) is needed to heat a house efficiently. Too small a furnace won't deliver enough heating; too large a furnace increases energy costs and can have an adverse effect on comfort. Sizing depends on the square-footage of the home, the amount of ceiling and wall insulation, the window area, use of storm doors, storm windows, and more.

Enlarging or reducing of original art.
A technique used to calculate and mark illustrations or photos for reduction or enlargement to fit a predetermined space, or "window," of a manuscript. Sizing is expressed as a percentage.
An instruction by the designer or dummier to the compositor or printer about how much to reduce or enlarge a photo or piece of line art.
Keywords:  shibori, batik, garment, tie, dyeing
Measurements of body used as guide for cutting garments to fit a variety of body types.
Any method by which part of the garment or fabric is kept from absorbing dye -eg tie dyeing, batik, shibori.
A fabric finish that adds weight, stiffness, and firmness.
A term used for materials used to give a fabric stiffness, luster, or firmness. Different types of material are used on different fabrics.
Materials used to give a special appearance or texture or set to a fabric. A good example would be the finish on glazed chintz.
Also resizing. Reducing a fired cartridge case to dimensions that allow easy chambering in a firearm of the appropriate caliber. May be full length, partial, or neck sizing. Bullets are also sized or reduced in diameter by forcing through a die.
Keywords:  cove, lathe, benchmark, bead, depth
In lathe turning, the process of making a series of initial cuts (usually with a parting tool) to the approximate final depth along the length of your turning. These sizing cuts are usually made for each bead or cove and serve as a “benchmark” or guide-line to follow as you proceed with your shaping cuts.
The process of designing a solar electric system to meet the required operating loads based on the total wattage of all appliances in the system.
The process of designing a solar system to meet a specified load given the solar resource and the nominal or rated energy output of the solar energy collection or conversion device.
A category of structure tuning. Oracle Expert makes recommendations for some of the default storage parameters of a tablespace. These parameters provide default initial allocation and growth rate of segments created within that tablespace. See also placement.
Trimming the side panels after they have been sewn together, to assure uniformity in the pleats from panel to panel. Also the treatment used on linings to give them a specific feel or look.
