Overturning Sentence Examples
Interpreted in the most general sense, these decrees, which enacted that the council of Constance derived its power immediately from Jesus Christ, and that every one, even the pope, was bound to obey it and every legitimately assembled general council in all that concerned faith, reform, union, &c., were tantamount to the overturning of the constitution of the church by establishing the superiority of the council over the pope.
For safety against overturning they considered a factor of 2 sufficient.
With portable cranes means must be provided to ensure the requisite stability against overturning; this is done by weighting the tail of the revolving part with heavy weights, and in steam cranes the FIG.
In the latter case the overturning tendency begins as soon as the load leaves the ground, but ceases as soon as the load again touches the ground and thus relieves the crane of the extra weight, whereas overturning backwards is caused either by the reaction of a chain breaking or by excessive counterweight.
If therefore the outer rail is laid at a level above that of the inner rail at the curve, overturning will be resisted more than would be the case if both rails were in the same horizontal plane, since the tilting of the vehicle due to this " superelevation " diminishes the overturning moment, and also increases the restoring moment, by shortening in the one case and lengthening in the other the lever arms at which the respective forces act.
In no case shall the overturning moment due to wind pressure exceed seventy-five per centum of the moment of stability of the structure.
The next class of dam to be considered is that in which the structure as a whole is so bound together that, with certain reservations, it may be considered as a monolith subject chiefly to the overturning tendency of waterpressure resisted by the weight of the structure itself and the supporting pressure of the foundation.
Masonry dams are, for the most part, merely retaining walls of exceptional size, in which the overturning pressure is water.
As the pressure of water is nil at the surface and increases in direct proportion to the depth, the overturning moment is as the cube of the depth; and the only figure which has a moment of resistance due to gravity, varying also as the cube of its depth, is a triangle.
Then a is the resultant horizontal pressure with an over turning moment of (I) Equating the moment of resistance (2) to the overturning moment (I), we have pxzd =d3 3 6 and x =?2 p ..Advertisement
Next, Rankine pointed out that, in a structure exposed to the overturning action of forces which fluctuate in amount and direction, there should be no appreciable tension at any point of the masonry.
We have hitherto considered only the horizontal overturning pressure of the water; but if from originally defective construction, or from the absence of vertical pressure due to weight of masonry towards the water edge of any horizontal bed, as at ab in fig.
Directly this occurred, the front part of the wall was subject to an additional overturning pressure of about 35 ft.
His refusal united all the Jacobins in the project of overturning the monarchy by force.
This extra cold fresh water could halt the overturning circulation, stopping all this extra heat reaching Northern Europe.Advertisement
Reading bettered this comeback on Sunday, overturning a 2-0 half time deficit, to overcome Germany's Club an der Alster 4-3.
Forklift trucks, compact dumpers, tipper lorries and tractors are all especially prone to overturning.
The circulation consisted of a deep meridional overturning cell and two shallow subtropical cells.
This may be defined as the expectation of an imminent Parousia or overturning of the current state of affairs.
However, Education Minister Charles Clark granted a last-minute reprieve, overturning the County Council's decision.Advertisement
Figure 2. Multiple states and abrupt transitions at critical points The present THC is assumed to be in the upper, strong overturning branch.
If this pressure is not relieved in some way, the train may be derailed either (I) by " climbing " the outer rail, with injury to that rail and, generally, to the corresponding wheel-flanges; (2) by overturning about the outer rail as a hinge, possibly without injury to rails or wheels; or (3) by forcing the outer rail outwards, occasionally to the extent of shearing the spikes that hold it down at the curve, thus spreading or destroying the track.
From consideration of the rigid triangular frame described above, it is clear that the " overturning " force acts horizontally from the centre of gra'Vity, and that the length of its lever arm is, at any instant, the vertical distance from the centre of gravity to the level of the outer rail.
However, Education Minister Charles Clark granted a last-minute reprieve, overturning the County Council 's decision.
Trawler crews often spent days chopping ice off the ship and rigging to reduce the danger of overturning due to Top Hamper.Advertisement
