A cylindrical pipe fitting, having a number of lateral outlets, for connecting one pipe with several others; as, the exhaust manifold of an automobile engine.
Chamber or pipe with several openings.
A pipework or header system, usually inter-connected by means of valves.
Piping of a number of cylinders or tubes into a common inlet or outlet. ( 0301)
A topological space that is "locally Euclidean" in the sense that every point is contained in an open set that is homeomorphic to an open set of Euclidean n-space . Additional conditions such as differentiability are often imposed. The manifold is the primary object of study in differential geomentry.
a mathematical space which is constructed, like a patchwork , by gluing and bending together copies of simple spaces
a space such that small pieces of look like small pieces of Euclidean space
a space that looks, locally, like a Euclidean space of some fixed dimension
Various in kind or quality; many in number; numerous; multiplied; complicated.
make multiple copies of; "multiply a letter"
combine or increase by multiplication; "He managed to multiply his profits"
a conductor that provides multiple connection ports.
A copy of a writing made by the manifold process.
To take copies of by the process of manifold writing; as, to manifold a letter.
A paper form made up of a number of sheets interleaved with carbon paper.
a stiff nib, used for making copies with carbon paper
A main channel providing equal flow distribution to lateral channels.
a subsea assembly that provides an interface between the production pipeline and flowline and the well. The manifold performs several functions, including collecting produced fluids from individual subsea wells, distributing the electrical and hydraulic systems and providing support for other subsea structures and equipment.
The device that distributes fluid and/or air.
A fitting that connects a number of branches to the main; serves as a distribution point.
