the finite element method fem is a powerful technique originally developed for numerical solution of complex problems in structural mechanics, and it remains the method of choice for complex systems.in the fem, the structural system is modeled by a set of appropriate finite elements interconnected at discrete points called nodes. elements may have physical properties such as thickness .
conodonts greek kōnos, 'cone', odont, 'tooth' are extinct agnathan chordates resembling eels, classified in the class conodonta.for many years, they were known only from tooth-like microfossils found in isolation and now called conodont elements.knowledge about soft tissues remains limited.
the glass cone. the only surviving element of the former glassworks site is a large english bond brick-built glass cone, standing over 35 m 115 ft high, and 21 m 69 ft in diameter. this particular cone was built in 1797 and was the largest of the works' four cones, having been constructed from an estimated 1.75 million bricks. in the south .
in mathematics, given a vector space x with an associated quadratic form q, written x, q , a null vector or isotropic vector is a non-zero element x of x for which q x = 0.. in the theory of real bilinear forms, definite quadratic forms and isotropic quadratic forms are distinct. they are distinguished in that only for the latter does there exist a nonzero null vector.
elements is the oldest extant large-scale deductive treatment of mathematics. it has proven instrumental in the development of logic and modern science, and its logical rigor was not surpassed until the 19th century. euclid's elements has been referred to as the most successful and influential textbook ever written.
bone healing, or fracture healing, is a proliferative physiological process in which the body facilitates the repair of a bone fracture. generally bone fracture treatment consists of a doctor reducing pushing displaced bones back into place via relocation with or without anaesthetic, stabilizing their position to aid union, and then waiting for the bone's natural healing process to occur.
absorbing man carl 'crusher' creel , a marvel comics villain; crusher, the name of an earth-element character in skylanders: giants; beverly crusher, jack crusher, and wesley crusher, in the television series star trek: the next generation and in some cases the related films; crusher, a recurring character in tv show the simpsons
the cone megastrobilus, seed cone, or ovulate cone contains ovules which, when fertilized by pollen, become seeds. the cone structure varies more markedly between the different conifer families, and is often crucial for the identification of many species of conifers. 1 cone of the conifer families. 1.1 pinaceae cones.
the two elements required for mechanized earthmoving, then as now, were an independent power source and off-road mobility, neither of which could be provided by the technology of that time.' container cranes were used from the 1950s and onwards, and made containerization possible.
the back cone of a bevel or hypoid gear is an imaginary cone tangent to the outer ends of the teeth, with its elements perpendicular to those of the pitch cone. the surface of the gear blank at the outer ends of the teeth is customarily formed to such a back cone.
