Measuring the Pitch of Door Closing Sounds - The Sound Quality Issue of Door “Thump”

The impetus for the investigation was a paper by Gardner and Magnasco. Their paper described an instantaneous frequency decomposition method that they used in the study of bird song and human speech. ...Two questions that immediately arise are can Gardner and Magnasco's technique resolve the low frequency components that occur in door closing sounds and, if so, do they relate to human perception of thump?

Zone of Influence of Porous Suction Tubes in Condensing Heat Exchanger for Space Systems

The model is based on the Richard's equation simplified for the zero-gravity conditions. The half-saturation distance or the zone of influence of the porous annular suction tubes on the cold-plate porous material will be in the range of 1 to 10 cm for the time scales ranging from 100 to 10,000 seconds and moisture diffusivity in the range of D = 10-4 to 10-6 m2/s.
