breakers

listen to the pronunciation of breakers
İngilizce - İngilizce
a wave that crests or breaks into foam
waves breaking on the shore
A wave that approaches shallow water, causing the wave height to exceed the depth of the water it is in, in effect tripping it The wave changes from a smooth surge in the water to a cresting wave with water tumbling down the front of it
Waves that break, displaying white water Depends on wave steepness and bottom bathymetry
plural of breaker

breaker
A wave breaking on a shore, over a reef, etc Breakers may be classified into four types: SPILLING--bubbles and turbulent water spill down front face of wave The upper 25 percent of the front face may become vertical before breaking Breaking generally occurs over quite a distance PLUNGING--crest curls over air pocket; breaking is usually with a crash Smooth splash-up usually follows COLLAPSING--breaking occurs over lower half of wave, with minimal air pocket and usually no splash-up Bubbles and foam present SURGING--wave peaks up, but bottom rushes forward from under wave, and wave slides up beach face with little or no bubble production Water surface remains almost plane except where ripples may be produced on the beachface during runback

breaker
{i} large wave, wave that breaks into foam
breaker
A wave that has become too steep to be stable As water becomes shallower waves become steeper When the steepness (ratio of height to length of wave) exceeds 1/7, the laws which govern surface-wave motion are no longer satisfied and the crest outpaces the body of the wave to form a turbulent white mass called a breaker There are three types: spilling-break gradually over distance; plunging-peak up, curl over with tremendous mass, and then break with a crash; surging-do not spill or plunge, but surge up the beach face
breaker
A machine which combines coal crushing and screening Normally consists of a rotating drum in which coal is broken by gravity impact against the walls of the drum
breaker
waves breaking on the shore
breaker

breaker
A wave that has become so steep that the crest of the wave topples forward, moving faster than the main body of the wave Breakers may be roughly classified into four kinds, although there is much overlap (see Figure 2): Spilling – bubbles and turbulent water spill down the front face of wave The upper 25 percent of the front face may become vertical before breaking Breaking generally across over quite a distance Plunging – a crest curls over air pocket; breaking is usually with a crash Smooth splash-up usually follows Collapsing – breaking occurs over lower half of wave Minimal air pocket and usually no splash-up Bubbles and foam present Surging – wave peaks up, but bottom rushes forward from under wave, and wave slides up beach face with little or no bubble production Water surface remains almost plane except where ripples may be produced on the beach face during backwash

breaker
An often large building located close to a mine shaft, housing machinery to break-up large pieces of mined coal into different sizes and grades of coal (from small to large: rice, buckwheat, pea, chestnut, stove, egg and grate) and remove impurities The sorting of these different kinds of coal is done by a system of screens which lie in tiers Each succeeding screen projects farther out than the one next above it The finest coal falls into the first row of bunkers, the next in order falls into the next row of bunkers, and so on The finished product is then loaded onto hopper cars for delivery (click here for a schematic)

Procedures established to forestall the market from spiraling down Circuit breakers will "kick-in" when the market has dropped by a specific amount within a certain period At that time, the major stock and commodities exchanges will temporarily stop trading in stocks and stock index futures to give floor traders time to rebalance buy and sell orders Circuit breakers were introduced in 1987 after Black Monday The levels were revised when the market had another steep drop in October 1989
circuit breakers
Circuit breakers are the switches found in the electrical service box of homes Each circuit breaker protects a specific group of electric devices (outlets, overhead lights, appliances, etc ) If the devices draw too much power, the circuit breakers will shut-off ("trip") the power to all the devices to which it supplies electricity Once the problem has been fixed, the circuit breaker can be "reset " When working on home automation projects that involve the home's wiring the respective circuit breakers should always be turned off manually to avoid electrocution Caution: some wall boxes contain more than one switch or outlet, and these may receive their power from different circuit breakers Always turn off all electric current to the wall box being worked on
circuit breakers
over-current components that trip to open the circuit and protect other electrical/electronic components from excess current flow; see fusesCircuit breakers can be reset after they "trip" to continue protecting the circuit
circuit breakers
Cut off the current if it reaches dangerous levels

circuit breakers
Measures instituted by the major stock and commodities exchange to halt trading temporarily in stocks and stock index futures when the market has fallen by a specified amount within a specified period Circuit breakers were instituted after Black Monday in 1987 and were modified following another sharp market drop in October 1989 Their purpose is to prevent a market free-fall by permitting a rebalancing of buy and sell orders
