(n.) A pin or peg used to stop the vent in a cask; also, the plug of a faucet or cock.
(1) For Araldite photoelastic models of an alumina head on a Vitallium spigot, as-cast taper surfaces lubricated with silicone grease gave consistent friction of typically mu = 0.14.
(2) Nevertheless the character of these spigots undoubtedly reflects phylogenetic relationships between the spider taxa.
(3) Static axial push-on and lift-off, and push-on and twist-off experiments were designed and performed to measure the effective, room-temperature coefficient of friction mu for different design femoral prosthesis cone taper joints comprising a universal head on a stem spigot.
(4) We compared the efficacy of ozonation, UV light, hyperchlorination, and heat eradication using a model plumbing system constructed of copper piping, brass spigots, Plexiglas reservoir, electric hot water tank, and a pump.
(5) Short-duration, cyclically loaded, axial, fretting corrosion tests were designed and performed to compare the fretting behaviour of different metal Howmedica universal heads connected to coated and uncoated metal cone taper spigots.
(6) The global supply glut of about 1.5m barrels per day is the driving factor behind the lower oil prices, with much of that overproduction because of Opec’s opening the spigots.
(7) Three practices were evaluated: the securing of catheters, presence of kinking and the use of urinary bags with a drainage spigot.
(8) The comparative observations enable me to create a hypothesis dealing with the existence of several evolutionary lines of spiders, each of which is represented with their own form of spigots.
(9) Alumina and metal heads were tested on metal spigots using either distilled water, Ringer's solution, blood or no lubricant.
(10) If the financial spigots of the City of London were turned off, it would be Russia that has the most to lose: since 2002 Russian companies have raised $406bn on London's capital markets.
(11) The values measured were typically mu = 0.2 for an alumina head on a Co-Cr-Mo or Ti-6Al-4V spigot, mu = 0.15 for a Co-Cr-Mo head on a Co-Cr-Mo or Ti-6Al-4V spigot and mu = 0.13 for a stainless steel head on a stainless steel spigot.
(12) "Once the spigot is turned on, once the preponderance of water comes out of a pipeline instead of the Colorado river, do you think for one minute it will ever be turned off?"
(13) The axial displacement of model heads on their spigots were compared with predicted values and previously measured values for prosthesis heads.
(14) The present paper reviews the results from the study of spigots, i.e.
(15) I think most pragmatists realise that we can’t close the spigot on the oil wells and close the coal mines immediately without some other energy source to shift to.” Climate change petition sign up
(16) Colonization of the catheter and its sequelae, including cystitis, result from a creeping adherent biofilm of bacteria ascending the luminal and external surfaces of the catheter and drainage system from a contaminated drainage spigot or from the urethral meatus.
(17) The Fed chairman refused to be drawn on precisely what signs would have to emerge before he turns off the spigot.
(18) A frosted glass cubicle contained a squat toilet, basin and a hot water spigot for showers.
(19) There’s Oprah and there’s the rest of us, that’s the real message – and we should be grateful merely to receive the sacramental balm that now gushes from her benevolent spigot.
(20) The robot hands are used to deliver solvents from pressurized spigot lines and to pipet amino acid solutions from reservoirs to an array of reaction vessels.
(n.) A small plug or wooden pin, used to stop a vent, as in a cask.
(n.) A small tube or spout inserted in a tree for conducting sap, as from a sugar maple.
(n.) A large stake driven into the ground as a support for some superstructure; a pile.
(v. t.) To supply with a spile or a spigot; to make a small vent in, as a cask.
