• tend
  • Newer plants tend to have significantly higher availability factors, but preventive maintenance is as important as improvements in design and technology. (wikipedia.org)
  • open
  • A simplified version of the definition is: The kv factor of a valve indicates "The water flow in m3/h, at a pressure drop across the valve of 1 kg /cm2 when the valve is completely open. (wikipedia.org)
  • In 2015, the same RSA-129 number was factored in about one day, with the CADO-NFS open source implementation of number field sieve, using a commercial cloud computing service for about $30. (wikipedia.org)
  • nuclear
  • The yield required of a nuclear weapon to destroy a hard and deeply buried target is reduced by a factor of 15 to 25 by enhanced ground-shock coupling if the weapon is detonated a few meters below the surface. (nap.edu)
  • For urban targets, civilian casualties from a nuclear earth-penetrator weapon are reduced by a factor of 2 to 10 compared with those from a surface burst having 25 times the yield. (nap.edu)
  • Originally the term availability factor was used only for power plants that depended on an active, controlled supply of fuel, typically fossil or later also nuclear. (wikipedia.org)
  • thus
  • Thus, the capacity of enzymes responsible for the activation of the carcinogenic PAHs has been regarded as one of the factors affecting the risk to chemical carcinogenesis. (aacrjournals.org)
  • Units for volume, however, can be factored into the base units of length (m3), thus they are considered derived or compound units. (wikipedia.org)
  • water
  • After a series of trials undertaken by the Swiss Laboratory for Horology in Neuchâtel in May 1937, the watch was certified as being able to withstand a pressure of 1.37 MPa (13.5 atm), equivalent to a depth of 135 m (443 ft), without any water intake whatsoever. (wikipedia.org)
  • problem
  • This Asiacrypt 2007 paper (link is to a preprint version) proves that solving the RSA problem using an oracle to some certain other special cases of the RSA problem is easier than factoring. (wikipedia.org)
  • When that decision is wholly motivated by factors other than age, the problem that prompted the ADEA's passage inaccurate and stigmatizing stereotypes about older workers' productivity and competence disappears. (cornell.edu)
  • system
  • In fact, a factor system constitutes a realisation of the cocycles in the second cohomology group in group cohomology. (wikipedia.org)
  • A cocycle or (Noether) factor system is a map c:G × G → L* satisfying c ( h , k ) g c ( h k , g ) = c ( h , k g ) c ( k , g ) . {\displaystyle c(h,k)^{g}c(hk,g)=c(h,kg)c(k,g). (wikipedia.org)
  • several
  • In Western practice, decisions on the selection and prioritization of news are made by editors on the basis of their experience and intuition, although analysis by J. Galtung and M. Ruge showed that several factors are consistently applied across a range of news organizations. (wikipedia.org)
  • plants
  • Everything else being equal, plants that are run less frequently have higher availability factors because they require less maintenance and because more inspections and maintenance can be scheduled during idle time. (wikipedia.org)
  • time
  • The availability factor of a power plant is the amount of time that it is able to produce electricity over a certain period, divided by the amount of the time in the period. (wikipedia.org)
  • But efficient factoring algorithms had not been studied much at the time, and a lot of progress was made in the following decades. (wikipedia.org)
  • cannot
  • A wind turbine cannot operate in wind speeds above a certain limit, which counts against its availability factor. (wikipedia.org)
  • list
  • Focusing on newspapers and broadcast news, Galtung and Ruge devised a list describing what they believed were significant contributing factors as to how the news is constructed. (wikipedia.org)
  • difference
  • The distinction between the formal, publicized policy in Thurston and the undisclosed factor here is not such a difference, since an employer's reluctance to acknowledge its reliance on the forbidden factor should not cut against imposing a penalty. (cornell.edu)
  • The difference arises when the plant is run at less than full capacity, in which case the capacity factor is less than the availability factor. (wikipedia.org)
