walking dandruff

Cheyletiellosis, a contagious skin disease affecting dogs and cats cause by an infestation of parasitic Cheyletiella mites. The condition causes excessive dandruff, but the euphemistic name also refers to the fact that the mites are large enough to be seen moving on the top layer of the animals skin. The poor animal was crawling with walking dandruff by the time his owners brought him in for treatment. That's not just dandruff on your cat—that's walking dandruff. You'll need to see a vet about that.

Based on Sections 2.1, 2.2, and 2.3, the model of conductor galloping with three DOFs (out of plan) can be constructed by using the Hamilton principle [24], which is
Then, employing the Galerkin procedure, the motion equations of conductor galloping can be discretized to a three-DOF model.
The motion in the horizontal direction is much smaller than in the vertical direction for the conductor galloping movement trajectory from the field observations in transmission lines.
In some studies, only the vertical vibration is considered in order to discuss the galloping characteristics more conveniently for the more complex nonlinear dynamic problem after the conductor galloping has appeared.
Contrast Analysis of Different Models on Galloping Amplitude
In this section, without loss of generality, a typical conductor is selected to analyze the galloping characteristics by using the different models under the different factors.
Numerical integration method which is used to solve the galloping equations can be considered as a quantitative method, which may obtain more accurate results [27].
Galloping does not happen after every meeting, but at this time of year we do get regular requests."
