Loading refers to the amount or percentage of magnetic material present in a slurry prior to coating. Higher loadings produce more amplitude but may reduce the percent of binders; less binders may reduce durability.(empty) NIST- NIST (National Institute of Standards & Technology) used to be named NBS (National Bureau of Standards) and provided secondary reference tape to the magnetic card industry. This function is now performed by PTB (Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt, Braunschweig Germany). Oersted- See coercivity. POS terminal- POS (point of sale) terminals are magnetic card (and/or IC card) readers with accessory display, keypads and microprocessors. These terminals are used to charge and/or authorize retail merchant sales.
The build-up of sanding debris between the abrasive particles on sandpaper or sanding discs during use. Loading reduces the cutting effectiveness of the abrasive. Return to top of Glossary
Deposits of workpiece material of the surface of a grinding wheel or coated abrasives that reduces contact between abrasives and workpiece. Loading typically leads to workpiece burn from frictional heating and loss of cutting efficiency. Load is reduced or eliminated by altering parameters such as feed rate, wheel speed, type of abrasive, etc. Dressing also is used to remove material accumulated on the wheel or coated abrasive.
The quantity of a substance entering the receiving waters.
a quantity of a particular chemical entering the environment, calculated over time (e.g., tonnes per month)
The quantity of a substance entering the environment (soil, water, or air). MAXIMUM EVENT RECURRENCE INTERVAL: Largest storm event (as measured by recurrence interval - e.g. 1 year storm, 10 year storm) that was used to evaluate BMP in this study. MICROPOOL: A small permanent pool used in a stormwater pond due to extenuating circumstances, i.e. concern over thermal impacts of larger ponds, impacts on existing wetlands, etc. MULCH: Any substance spread or allowed to remain on the soil surface to conserve soil moisture and shield soil particles from the erosive forces of raindrops and runoff.
The insertion of impedance into a circuit to change the characteristics of the circuit. In multichannel communications systems, the insertion of white noise or equivalent dummy traffic at a specified level to simulate system traffic and thus enable analysis of system performance. In telephone systems, the load, i.e., power level, imposed by the busy hour traffic.
Providing or connecting an electrical device capable of accepting power to match the impedance of an antenna to a transmitter so that maximum power is radiated from a generating device, such as a transmitter.
In telecommunication, the term loading means the insertion of impedance into a circuit to change the characteristics of the circuit.
The point of maximum energy buildup in a shaft as it is swung. Locktite Shaft Holder: Type of shaft holder, made of aluminum or steel, used to tightly secure a club in a vise, usually for steel reshaft procedures. It holds a shaft very securely, but may damage the shaft due to the high pressure at which it is designed to work. Not for use with graphite shafts.
The amount of stationary phase coated or bonded onto a solid support. In liquid-liquid chromatography, it is the milligram amount of liquid phase per gram of packing. In BPC, the loading may be expressed in mmol/m2 or in percent C. See Coverage.
term for the process of packing-up products and display setup into the vehicle after a show.
The total amount of material (sediment, nutrients and oxygen-demanding material) brought into a lake by inflowing streams, runoff, direct discharge through pipes, groundwater, the air (aerial or atmospheric load) and other sources over a specific period of time (often annually).
the amount of a material entering a system over a given time interval.
The amount (concentration multiplied by flow rate) of a substance being emitted or discharged.
weight to be borne or conveyed
the ratio of the gross weight of an airplane to some factor determining its lift
(see also Risk Load): A factor incorporated into a capitation rate to adjust for coverage of individuals and groups with certain characteristics used in conjunction with straightforward discounting.
more info The addition of weight on top of a snowpack, usually from wind drifting, new snow or rain.
Generic term for the various loads, where relevant, exerted on a structure or elements of a structure including wind loads, snow loads, imposed loads for example those associated with accidental human impact, and dead loads such as self weight.
Keywords:  kaolin, mixer, opacity, receptive, pulp
In paper making, the addition of kaolin or similar substances to the pulp at the mixer stage, to give opacity and a receptive surface for printing.
