a raised beach, coastal terrace, or perched coastline is a relatively flat, horizontal or gently inclined surface of marine origin, mostly an old abrasion platform which has been lifted out of the sphere of wave activity. thus, it lies above or under the current sea level, depending on the time of its formation. it is bounded by a steeper ascending slope on the landward side and a steeper descending slope on the seaward side. due to its generally flat shape it is often used for anthropogenic str
in slip-critical connections, movement of the connected parts is a serviceability condition and bolts are tightened to a minimum required pretension. slip is prevented through friction of the 'faying' surface, that is the plane of shear for the bolt and where two members make contact. because friction is proportional to the normal force .
urban and suburban areas are a main sources of nonpoint source pollution due to the amount of runoff that is produced due to the large amount of paved surfaces. paved surfaces, such as asphalt and concrete are impervious to water penetrating them. any water that is on contact with these surfaces will run off and be absorbed by the surrounding .

surface runoff. surface runoff, when water runs off impervious surfaces, such as non-porous concrete, can cause severe soil erosion and flooding. urban runoff tends to pick up gasoline, motor oil, heavy metals, trash and other pollutants from sidewalks, roadways and parking lots.
an abrasive is a material, often a mineral, that is used to shape or finish a workpiece through rubbing which leads to part of the workpiece being worn away by friction. while finishing a material often means polishing it to gain a smooth, reflective surface, the process can also involve roughening as in satin, matte or beaded finishes.

teak is also used extensively in boat decks, as it is extremely durable and requires very little maintenance. the teak tends to wear in to the softer 'summer' growth bands first, forming a natural 'non-slip' surface. any sanding is therefore only damaging. use of modern cleaning compounds, oils or preservatives will shorten the life of the teak .
an aircraft fairing is a structure whose primary function is to produce a smooth outline and reduce drag.. these structures are covers for gaps and spaces between parts of an aircraft to reduce form drag and interference drag, and to improve appearance.
floods can be controlled by redirecting excess water to purpose-built canals or floodways, which in turn divert the water to temporary holding ponds or other bodies of water where there is a lower risk or impact to flooding. examples of flood control channels include the red river floodway that protects the city of winnipeg canada and the manggahan floodway that protects the city of manila .
