By Patrick Dougherty

Utilizing minimum instruments and an easy means of bending, interweaving, and fastening jointly sticks, artist PatrickDougherty creates artistic endeavors inseparable with nature and the panorama. With a blinding number of varieties seamlesslyintertwined with their context, his sculptures evoke fantastical photos of nests, cocoons, cones, castles, and beehives. during the last twenty-five years, Dougherty has outfitted greater than 2 hundred works during the usa, Europe, and Asia that diversity from stand-alone buildings to one of those sleek primitive architectureevery piece enthralling in its skill to fly via timber, overtake constructions, and almost defy gravity. Stickwork, Dougherty's first monograph, good points thirty-eight of his natural, dynamic works that twist the road among structure, panorama, and paintings. developed on-site utilizing in the neighborhood sourced fabrics and native volunteer exertions, Dougherty's sculptures are tangles of twigs and branches which were remodeled into whatever unforeseen and wild, stylish and crafty, and sometimes funny. occasionally freestanding, and different occasions wrapping round timber, constructions, railings, and rooms, they're developed interior and in nature. As natural subject, the stick sculptures finally fall apart and fade again into the panorama. that includes a wealth of images and drawings documenting the development technique of every one striking constitution, Stickwork preserves the legend of the fellow who weaves the easiest of fabrics right into a singular creative triumph.

Permanent magnet is entered into the tube of stainless steel surrounded by by-pass ring of armco steel (Fig. 16, a). The magnet axis is coincident with the tube diameter being at right angles to the flow (we are dealing with the axial direction). At the external surface of the tube the neck is made where the cooper shield ring enclosing the magnet is fitted to. The ring has the cut filled with insulator, in which two electrodes being in contact with the coolant and reading longitudinal component of velocity are fixed.

To calculate £k for fast reactor pins the following relations can be used: ^•(l-*,)-* ___ V -X, I Jti -r jin ! where ' *i -X, / \ X, +Xf a + ^——2. (i + x)_ v __ -V / + x.

Number of the main harmonics in Fourier series is accepted to be equal k=k0=6 for the regular part of bundle and k=k0=l for the edge pins. 3 10~2(m2K)/W. An internal structure of the pin has no effect on the value of £k for the most part, as shown in [30].

To find the best construction to be followed, some variously of the sensors constructed were investigated, which differ in shape and in size of the magnet, in material and number of electrodes, in technique of the electrodes embedded into the tube surface, in an angle between the electrodes, in extent to which a magnetic field to be located at the magnet end (the availability or the absence of shield rings) and so on. Experiments were carried out in the channels of various sharp, (Fig. 2) and non-standard edge channels (hexagonal models are extensively used).
