Sorry, no etymologies found.
I've got to wonder, though, why this study was so focused on axisymmetric nose cones for the cargo orbiter.
…Before the shell is punctured… the symmetry of the hot bubble begins to react to the axisymmetric distribution of the pressure ahead of it.
The latest lens is based on the "axisymmetric free-form-surface lens," which was announced by the laboratory in July 2007.
The AL-37FU engines are configured for thrust vector control, with the axisymmetric steerable thrust vector control nozzle is fixed on a circular turning unit.
The results also require a non-axisymmetric structure of the emission zone, implying a curved trajectory for the emitting material within the jet, with the dissipation region located at a considerable distance from the black hole, at about 10
In addition to the Class D amplification and DSP, the KW122 contains a 12-inch cone transducer and 1. 75-inch diaphragm compression driver, with a 50 Hz to 20 kHz frequency range, maximum SPL (1 meter) of 131 dB (peak) and nominal coverage of 75° axisymmetric.
Likewise, the KW153 three-way system contains a 15-inch cone transducer, 6. 5-inch mid-range and 1. 75-inch diaphragm compression driver, with a 33 Hz to 20 kHz frequency range, maximum SPL (1 meter) of 134 dB (peak), and nominal coverage of 75° axisymmetric.
The KW152 contains a 15-inch cone transducer and 1. 75-inch diaphragm compression driver, with a 44 Hz to 20 kHz frequency range, maximum SPL (1 meter) of 133 dB (peak), and nominal coverage of 60° axisymmetric.
SURFACE TYPE = REVOLUTION is for creating 3-D objects in 3-D space, not axisymmetric objects
Use SURFACE TYPE = SEGMENT for axisymmetric objects
