Definitions for "Flashing"
Pieces of metal, built into the joints of a wall, so as to lap over the edge of the gutters or to cover the edge of the roofing; also, similar pieces used to cover the valleys of roofs of slate, shingles, or the like. By extension, the metal covering of ridges and hips of roofs; also, in the United States, the protecting of angles and breaks in walls of frame houses with waterproof material, tarred paper, or the like. Cf. Filleting.
Metal sheeting used to waterproof between two different areas of construction.
Connecting materials that seal the roof membrane at expansion joints, drains, gravel stops, and other places where the roof membrane is interrupted. Base Flashing forms the upturned edges of the watertight membrane at curbs and walls. Cap or counterflashing shields the exposed top edges of the base flashing.
Keywords:  reheat, dipped, glory, molten, glass
The reheating of an article at the furnace aperture during manufacture to restore its plastic condition; esp., the reheating of a globe of crown glass to allow it to assume a flat shape as it is rotated.
A mode of covering transparent white glass with a film of colored glass.
Heating the glass briefly in the glory hole, it evens out the temperature of the working glass, including the punty, when working mostly on the rim, reheating at the door. Also part of the decorating technique of striking where the air is blocked (or gas added) in the gloryhole before flashing, producing a flaring yellow reducing flame that pulls oxygen from the metal oxide decorations, leaving shiny metal at the surface.
Keywords:  modchip, tsop, bios, rewritten, bin
putting a bios on a bios chip (modchip or TSOP)
literally uploading or transfering a new BIOS file (usually ending in .bin) to the BIOS hardware on a modchip or TSOP.
Updating the flash memory on a system. Flash memory is non-volatile memory that is used to hold control code such as BIOS information. It is also very fast because it can be rewritten block by block, rather than byte by byte.
The creation of an artifical flood by the sudden letting in of a body of water; -- called also flushing.
The process of producing steam by discharging water into a region of pressure lower than the saturation pressure that corresponds to the water temperature
Liquidtight rail on top of a tank which contains water and spillage and directs it to suitable drains, and may be combined with the overturn protection.
uneven gloss with shiny or dull spots on painted surfaces. Usually caused by: improper or lack of priming of porous surfaces; poor painting techniques; painting over fresh paint or primer before it's dry; uneven film thickness; drying during excessive high/low temperatures.
(1) A paint defect in a paint film in which patches glossier than the general finish develop, especially at joints or laps in the coating. (2) The non-uniform appearance, including spotty differences in color or gloss, usually due to improper or non-uniform sealing of a porous substrate.
fish behaviour shown by rapid, glancing contact with an object in an effort to displace an external parasite or irritation. "Flashing" refers to the fact that the lighter underbelly is seen momentarily.
A quick twist-like movement made by a fish to scrape part of its body against an object in the tank, usually done to eliminate parasites or other sources of skin irritation.
when fish turn their bodies sideways and quickly rub themselves on something, normally a rock or something hard on the bottom. The fish appear to be scratching themselves. This may be indicative of a skin irritant, perhaps an external parasite such as ick or fish lice, but healthy fish may "flash" on occasion. Anything that makes the fish itchy may result in flashing.
Pre-exposing the paper to a very diffused white light in order to reduce the contrast level between the highlights and shadows and extend the tonal range.
Briefly and evenly exposing photographic materials to white light.Often used to lower contrast of printing paper, when the flashing exposure is made in addition to the regular exposure.
to openly display or flaunt one's nudity (partial or fully exposed) in public
emitting light in sudden short or intermittent bursts; "flashing lightning and roaring thunder"
A short burst of light that can be harmful to the eye.
Keywords:  seam, seepage, mold, pouring, excess
Seepage when pouring a liquid or molten material into a mold with a seam. The excess is referred to as the flashing and should be trimmed before completion of the cast.
1. Excess clay on an object left by the seam lines of a mold. 2.The resultant color change on clay or glaze left by direct flame during a fuel firing.
Where some hot plastic has run between two injection mould halves during the manufacturing process. Flashing manifests as very thin wafers of plastic that can be easily removed with a modelling knife.
Extra plastic usually found in openings of a mold.
Also known as flame treating. Flashing is a method of surface preparation for many low surface energy plastics, such as polypropylene or polyethylene, that will allow an adhesive to make a good or better bond to the plastic. Flashing involves passing a flame over the surface of the plastic to oxidize a very thin layer of the plastic for the adhesive to adhere to.
The release of gas from a fluid, caused by the pressure of the fluid falling below the fluid vapor pressure. See cavitation.
A condition when liquid changes to the vapor state caused by pressure reduction inside a valve.
The process whereby a drop in pressure or increase in temperature cause vaporization.
Small peaks appear around the tableting periphery, where the land meets the band. These usually flake off during the de-dusting process.
A mode of operation in which a traffic signal indication is turned on and off repetitively. (MUTCD) Full-actuated operation. A type of traffic control signal operation in which all signal phases function on the basis of actuation. (MUTCD)
Keywords:  swept, vivid, warning, emotion, him
a short vivid experience; "a flash of emotion swept over him"; "the flashings of pain were a warning"
A lip of extruded feedstock that penetrates along the parting line of a die cavity due to excessive pressure, poor tool tolerances, or binder separation from the powder.
The process through which the firmware on compatible remote controls is upgraded to a newer revision. See also: firmware, PC interface.
description of a light-fixed on a navigation aid-that flashes on and off. The period of light is always briefer than the period of darkness.
Keywords:  shingle, sorts
a shingle of sorts
Technique for lowering contrast by giving a slight uniform exposure to film before processing.
Keywords:  rapid, gas, liquid, change
A rapid change in liquid state from a liquid to a gas.
