Physical perturbation of a plant canopy brought about by wind is a ubiquitous phenomenon and yet its biological importance has often been overlooked. This is partly due to the complexity of the issue at hand: wind induced movement (or mechanical excitation) is a stochastic process which is difficult to measure and quantify; plant motion is dependent upon canopy architectural features which, until recently, were difficult to accurately represent and model in 3 dimensions; light patterning throughout a canopy is difficult to compute at high resolutions, especially when confounded by other environmental variables. Recent studies have reinforced the expectation that canopy architecture is a strong determinant of productivity and yield; however, links between the architectural properties of the plant and its mechanical properties, particularly its response to wind, are relatively unknown.
We used X ray computed tomography (CT), microscopy and hardness measurements to study Al “Si10 “Mg produced by selective laser melting (SLM). Specimens were subject to a series of heat treatments including annealing and precipitation hardening. The specimen interiors were imaged with X ray CT, allowing the non destructive quantification and characterisation of pores, including their spatial distribution.
At all. Being supportive to someone doesn mean you can fucking grab them, scream sexual shit at them or film them in public trying to live their damn lives and function normally. They don know you as well as u know what they present to the public. Waves is yet another movie in the A24 stable that shows filmmakers playing with unconventional storytelling devices as well as interesting technical components. Schults leverages lens swaps and mixed aspect ratios to create a moviegoing experience that physically changes in a way few others do. I mentioned in my review of The Lighthouse that while ratio twists have become all the rage in indie filmmaking, they rarely feel motivated.
Of course, this is a risky strategy if you fall in love with a certain item. There is also the chance that someone else will grab up the deal or beat you to the clearance and you won’t get the item. So try not to get too attached to one thing. He worked in a string of highly respected establishments in Europe but here, his absolute vision is realised from crockery that is designed by him, to sculptures and decor. He is clearly relishing the creative autonomy afforded to him here. Andre very generously invited me for dinner and the experience was nothing short of divine delicious, evocative, challenging, emotive, elusive every morsel was pure magic and deserving of his listing on the top 50 restaurants in the world.
