Definitions for "Coupling"
The act of bringing or coming together; connection; sexual union.
A device or contrivance which serves to couple or connect adjacent parts or objects; as, a belt coupling, which connects the ends of a belt; a car coupling, which connects the cars in a train; a shaft coupling, which connects the ends of shafts.
Used to connect the pump to the driver. It transmits torque and compensates for axial growth, but not for radial misalignment.
Level of dependency that exists between modules. Cross life cycle activities Activities that overlap different phases of the methodology. They are influenced or performed in conjunction with several phases. Cross life cycle activities include fact-finding, documentation and presentations, estimation and measurement, feasibility analysis and project and process management
Describes how strongly two classes are interdependent. If one calls many of the other's methods, they are strongly coupled. If there are few interactions between them, they are weakly coupled. Good designs have weak coupling.
Measure of interconnectivity among software program modules' structure. Coupling depends on the interface complexity between modules. This can be defined as the point at which entry or reference is made to a module, and what data passes across the interface. In application software design, it is preferable to strive for the lowest possible coupling between modules. Simple connectivity among modules results in software that is easier to understand, maintain and less prone to a ripple or domino effect caused when errors occur at one location and propagate through the system.
Attaching the transducer to the ground or foundation in such a way as to ensure there is no jumping or slipping which would mean the recordings would not reflect the true ground motion.
(1) The physical connect of an ultrasonic transducer to the test component. (2) The interaction of the coil's magnetic field with the test sample, which results in the generation of eddy currents in the sample and, in turn, a change in probe impedance.
The condition in which a double heterozygote has received two linked mutations from one parent and their wild-type alleles from the other parent, e.g., a b / + + (as opposed to a + / + b; see also repulsion).
When a certain allele at a particular locus is on the same chromosome with a specific allele at a closely-linked locus.

the act of pairing a male and female for reproductive purposes; "the casual couplings of adolescents"; "the mating of some species occurs only in the spring"
Is the term used to describe the mating process in butterflies. While coupling, the male and female face in opposite directions with abdomens attached. Since the female is larger and stronger than the male, when disturbed while coupling the female will actually carry the male in flight as he is still attached.

Keywords:  loin, pelvis, ribs, part, body
The part of the body between the ribs and the pelvis; the loin.
The extent to which subsystems depend on each other.
Extent to which a system must integrate with other systems. Integration requirements must be defined and appropriate integration controls must be designed.
Coupling is the degree to which groups within a program (e.g. methods or class definitions) depend on each other.
Koppelung The appearance of a (structural) tone at different registers in one voice. Similar to register transfer but is not form generating
a good choice for things like thermometers, sight tubes, etc
a relationship between the evaluation of the condition and the execution of the action relative to transaction boundaries
The relationship of a premature beat and the preceding beat.
The relationship of an object to other objects.

Used for attaching one box to another until you had 34 boxes coupled together. That was called a "round" of coal.
Coupling means that things are linked—that they have dependencies and that there are consequences if they are changed. A sliding scale of how tightly two services are bound together.
A measure of the strength of the interconnections between system components; the degree to which the components depend on one another. Systems are described as "loosely coupled" or "tightly coupled."
a critical component of any drive system
A complete breakdown of contact resistance, which see.
Transferring light into or out of an optical fiber.
