Related Terms

FATIGUED

A structural failure of the filter medium due to flexing caused by cyclic differential pressure.

FIXED DISPLACEMENT PUMP

A pump in which the displacement per cycle cannot be varied.

Surface fatigue wear

the formation of surface or subsurface cracks and fatigue crack propagation. It results from cyclic loading of a surface.

CYCLE

A series of processes in a system which always returns to its initial state.

DEFROST CYCLE

Refrigerating cycle in which evaporator frost and ice accumulation is melted.

SIMPLE CYCLE

Referring to the gas turbine cycle consisting only of compression, combustion and expansion.

AMPHIDROMIC REGION

An area surrounding a no-tide point from which the radiating cotidal lines progress through all hours of the tidal cycle

CHRONOMETER TIME

The hour of the day as indicated by a chronometer. Shipboard chronometers are generally set to Greenwich mean time. Unless the chronometer has a 24-hour dial, chronometer time is usually expressed on a 12-hour cycle and labeled AM or PM.

CURRENT ELLIPSE

A graphic representation of a rotary current in which the velocity of the current at different hours of the tidal cycle is represented by radius vectors and vectorial angles. A line joining the extremities of the radius vectors will form a curve roughly approximating an ellipse. The cycle is completed in one half tidal day or in a whole tidal day according to whether the tidal current is of the semidiurnal or the diurnal type. A current of the mixed type will give a curve of two unequal loops each tidal day.

CYCLE

A single complete operation consisting of progressive phases starting and ending at the neutral position.
