Definitions for "DIAPHRAGM"
A muscular partition separating disorders of the chest from disorders of the bowels.
A dividing membrane or thin partition, commonly with an opening through it.
The muscular and tendinous partition separating the cavity of the chest from that of the abdomen; the midriff.
A thin membrane that can vibrate back and forth either to sense sounds or to make them.
The part of an acoustical transducer that responds to or creates sound waves. A microphone has a diaphragm that vibrates in response to the sound waves striking it. A speaker's diaphragm actually pushes and pulls the air to create a sound wave.
The surface of a loudspeaker driver that moves, creating sound.
In a camera, a diaphragm adjusts the size of the opening for light, the aperture. A diaphragm is analogous to the iris of the human eye.
The thin metal leaves that can be adjusted to control the size of the lens aperture.
a mechanical device in a camera that controls size of aperture of the lens; "the new cameras adjust the diaphragm automatically"
A plate with an opening, which is generally circular, used in instruments to cut off marginal portions of a beam of light, as at the focus of a telescope.
A sensing element consisting of a thin, usually circular, plate which is deformed by pressure differential applied across the plate.
A thin plate or partition across a bridge member to stiffen the same.

Neutrophil Topotecan
Niacin Thyroxine
Niacin Synaptophysin
A horizontal structure-such as floor or roof connected to walls able to transmit lateral loads to walls in respect of their stiffness
The "skin" of material that forms a rigid wall, roof, or floor and is usually of OSB, plywood or other structural panels. The diaphram provides diagonal stability and helps resist movement caused by wind loads, earth movements, etc.
Wall running up to the roof-ridge.
Keywords:  girder, trolley, bridge, tying, evenly
A structural member that runs across the width of the bridge tying the girders together. Its purpose it to evenly distribute the load.
A vertical plate (or channel) between the girder webs, which serves to support the top cover plate and bridge rail and to transfer the forces of the trolley wheel loads to the webs.
Diaphragm compressor Diaphragm cooling
A stationary element between stages of a multistage centrifugal compressor. It may include guide vanes for directing the flowing medium to the impeller of the succeeding stage. in conjunction with an adjacent diaphragm, it forms the diffuser surrounding the impeller. ( 020)
the side wall or bottom of an ultrasonic cleaning tank or the active surface of an immersible transducer or other radiating acoustic device that transmits ultrasonic energy from the stack or transducer into a liquid bath (analagous to the diaphragm in an early telephone), in effect thus forming the radiating surface - use of term in this fashion coined by Berliner - see text).
a mechanical pressure transducer that is used to detect slight changes in pressure

Generally a composition material, whose primary purpose is to sense the outlet pressure, and in combination with the pressure adjusting spring and linkage or other loading element, to position the valve disk. Also none as "Sensing Element". (See Figure 3)

acts as an iris within the condenser which opens and closes for sensitive light control

a member placed within a member or superstructure system to distribute stresses and improve strength and rigidity; see BRACING
a packing attached between rigid members in relative motion which absorbs the motion through its own deformation.
a metal collar at right angles to a drain pipe for the purpose of retarding seepage or the burrowing of rodents

Used instead of a stem washer, this cap is found on compression faucets.

Generally a five hole disc placed under the stage on a high power microscope. Each hole has a different diameter. By turning it, you can vary the amount of light passing through the stage opening. This helps to properly illuminate the specimen and increase contrast and resolution. The diaphragm is most useful at the higher powers.
the device in a camera or microscope that lets in variable amount of light.
The structural supporting member that is placed perpendicular between stringers for added support and stability. Example.
