A place where anything is kept in store; especially, a place where water is collected and kept for use when wanted, as to supply a fountain, a canal, or a city by means of aqueducts, or to drive a mill wheel, or the like.
a natural or artificial lake that stores water. Click here for a map showing our Reservoirs, Treatment Plants & Wellfields. From there, you can click to learn more, or visit Where Does Your Water Come From?, where you can click on your neighborhood to find out where your water comes from.
water collected in a natural or artificial containment that may be used as the water supply for a town, agricultural crop, etc. (Oswego Lake is a reservoir that provides water for several cranberry bogs in Burlington County, New Jersey.)
a cylinder attached to a shock either by hose or tube, which flows the same rate of oil the shock displaces. The reservoir body has an internal floating piston which divides the oil and nitrogen it holds inside. The additional oil allows the shock to maintain cooler temperatures due to the extra volume, and the additional nitrogen helps keep pressure on the oil to prevent cavitation, or foaming/thinning of the oil, which will ruin the shock's performance. Here is a picture of the shock components.
Large bellows, used to help even out the pulses in suction made by the pumping bellows or motor operated bellows; also stores reserve suction for times when the player mechanism demands it; some pianos will have a suction reservoir and a pressure reservoir, particularly in orchestrions outfitted with pipes or other instruments that use pressure instead of vacuum.

a region that is capable of holding and perhaps processing a certain mass of a substance of interest. Examples would include: the stratospheric reservoir of ozone; nutrient reservoirs in the deep ocean; the carbon dioxide atmospheric reservoir; the deep sea carbon reservoir of shells and detritus of dead sea organisms. Clearly a reservoir has a finite capacity - it can be full, in which case no more can be added.
This is a spring-loaded, expandable box for storing wind. Weights and springs are used on the expandable part to keep the air under a constant pressure. If the wind going to the pipes is not under the same, constant pressure, the sound will waver.
A basin that is deliberately constructed for collecting and storing large amounts of water. In ancient times, Pueblo people built reservoirs in places where water from melting snow and rainstorms would drain naturally.
A pond, lake, tank or basin (natural or human made) where water is collected and used for storage. Large bodies of groundwater are called a groundwater reservoir or aquifer; water behind a dam is also called a reservoir of water.
A porous and permeable underground formation containing a natural accumulation of producible oil and/or natural gas that is confined by impermeable rock or water barriers and is individual and separate from other reserves.
This is a storage container for the wind. The top part of the container is expandable, like a fan or accordian. Weights or springs are used on the expandable part to keep the air under pressure. If the wind going to the pipes is not under the same, constant pressure, the sound will waver and the note will warble.
Reservoir (Groundwater) - For any given area, the subsurface storage space between the water table and the base of the principal aquifer--includes one or more aquifers and any associated fine-grained material (usually excludes any perched aquifer).
A porous, fractured or cavitied rock formation with a geological seal forming a trap for producible hydrocarbons. A common exploration maxim is that a prospective target must possess a related Source rock, Structure and Seal.
A reservoir rock hosts the hydrocarbon accumulation in the sub-surface and may consist of any number of rock types (although is often sandstone). Also includes permeable and porous fractured rock and coal seams.
A porous and permeable underground formation, including a coal seam, containing a natural accumulation of producible natural gas that is confined by impermeable rock or water barriers and is separate from other reservoirs.
A carbon reservoir is an area, other than the atmosphere, where carbon has accumulated in appreciable amounts as a result of past or present carbon storage activities (sequestration). A reservoir has the capacity to store, accumulate or release a substance of concern, such as carbon, a greenhouse gas or a precursor. Oceans, soils, and forests are examples of reservoirs of carbon.

A subsurface, porous, permeable rock body in which oil or gas or both can be trapped. Most reservoir rocks are limestones, dolomites, sandstones, or a combination of these. The three basic types of hydrocarbon reservoirs are oil, gas, and condensate. An oil reservoir generally contains three fluids: gas, oil, and water, with oil the dominant product. In the typical oil reservoir, these fluids occur in different phases as a result of the variation in their gravities. Gas, the lightest, occupies the upper part of the reservoir rocks; water, the lower part; and oil, the intermediate section. In addition to occurring as a cap or in solution, gas may accumulate independently of the oil. If so, the reservoir is called a gas reservoir. Associated with the gas, in most instances, are salt water and some oil. In a condensate reservoir, the hydrocarbons may exist as a gas, but, when brought to the surface, some of the heavier gases condense to a liquid or condensate. At the surface, the hydrocarbons from a condensate reservoir consist of gas and a high-gravity crude (i.e., the condensate). Condensate wells are sometimes called gas-condensate reservoirs.
1. A space capable of storing a fluid. 2. A supply of a substance, especially a reserve or extra supply. 3. A natural or man-made lake that serves to store water; often the release is controlled so that withdrawals can be managed.
Most often, a reservoir refers to an artificial lake, used to store water for various uses. Reservoirs are created first by building a sturdy dam, usually out of cement, earth, rock, or a mixture of all three. Once the dam is completed, a stream is allowed to flow behind it and eventually fill it to capacity.
Any person, plant, animal, insect, soil, or substance (such as water), or any combination of these, in which an infectious agent usually lives and multiplies, or which it depends primarily for survival
A place where something such as water is kept in reserve. The part of a device in which something is kept in reserve or stored, as an Ommaya reservoir. For an infectious agent, an animal, person, plant, soil, or other substance in which the agent normally abides. See: Reservoir of infection. From the French réservoir, from réserver meaning to reserve.
a population or group of populations of vertebrate or invertebrate hosts in which the pathogen is endemic (i.e., permanently maintained). Although human populations can form reservoirs of this kind, the concept is usually applied to non-human populations from which the pathogen periodically escapes, causing individual infections or epidemics in humans or epizootics in other animals. From Middle French, reserver (1690).
Any person, animal, arthropod, plant, soil, or substance (or any combination of these) in which an infectious agent normally lives and multiplies, on which it depends primarily for survival, and where it reproduces itself in such a manner that it can be transmitted to a susceptible host.
An animal (but sometimes human) population where a disease is widespread and hosted before being transmitted to other animals or humans. In the case of West Nile Virus, the reservoir is wild birds which are bitten by mosquitoes. These infected mosquitoe bites pass the disease along from one species to another.
Chamber connected to the master cylinder (usually by hoses) and used for storing hydraulic fluid. ROTOR Alternative name for brake disc. RUN-OUT Rotors which are warped or out-of-true have excess "run-out", meaning the surface varies or wobbles as it rotates around a fixed point. Scrap Thickness The thickness at which a disc rotor must be discarded. Through wear and machining, a disc rotor becomes thinner over time. As a result it becomes less able to dissipate heat and more prone to warping. Scrap Thickness is usually determined by the vehicle manufacturer.
A cylindrical container for the storage of air under pressure. Main reservoir of large capacity are located in locomotives and under all motor cars having air compressors; auxiliary and emergency reservoirs are located under the cars. Reset Lockout Prevents the Pro Link Diagnostic Data Reader from resetting DDEC Trip information. Without this lockout feature, trip data can be accidentally erased when a Pro Link is used to service the DDEC ECM. ( Detroit )
