 barrier
Installing a solid barrier to interrupt the direct radiation of sound to the listener is a frequently used method for controlling many noise sources.
The most effective form of barrier, the full enclosure, is widely used on fixed noisemakers such as generator sets, compressors, heavy machinery, engines etc. In many cases, where ventilation is required, openings must be provided in the enclosure walls.
To be effective, an open barrier must be positioned close to the noise source and be as high as possible.

 Radiant Barriers: A Question and Answer Primer (FSEC-EN-15)   (Site not responding. Last check: )
A radiant barrier is a layer of aluminum placed in an airspace to block radiant heat transfer between a heat-radiating surface (such as a hot roof) and a heat-absorbing surface (such as conventional attic insulation).
The most effective way to install a radiant barrier in an existing attic is simply to staple the foil material to the underside of the top chord of the roof trusses or to the underside of the roof decking.
Attach the radiant barrier to the roof deck or truss chords after the roof decking is installed, but prior to the installation of the ceiling drywall.

 SOFIA - Pleistocene Barrier Bar Seaward of Ooid Shoal Complex Near Miami, Florida
Although the barrier is composed of the same material as the ooid shoal and has identical porosity and permeability characteristics, it is separated from the shoal to form a separate sand body of reservoir dimensions.
The barrier bar—back-barrier channel—ooid shoal morphology continues north beyond the areas which are outlined by the 7-ft and 9-ft (2.1 and 2.7 m) contours, and is illustrated in profiles A, B, and C of the coastal ridge in Figure 4.
Although the barrier bar was analogous morphologically and physiographically to quartz sand barrier islands, it probably formed essentially in place and should retain sedimentary structures indicative of bar formation rather than of bar migration.

 Israel's "separation barrier" in the occupied West Bank: Human Rights and International Humanitarian Law ...
The complexity of the barrier's planned route in the Jerusalem area is perhaps the most obvious example of how the barrier is being constructed in a manner to incorporate and make territorially contiguous illegal government-sponsored civilian settlements in the West Bank and occupied East Jerusalem.
The separation barrier, in its present and planned construction, imposes long-term and severe restrictions on freedom of movement, causing extensive and disproportionate harm to Palestinians and worsening conditions of access to the essentials of civilian life.
The separation barrier constitutes a serious further encroachment on the land and resources of the occupied West Bank, causing extensive harm to the Palestinian inhabitants and threatening to impose permanent changes to the detriment of the local population.

 Galactic barrier - Memory Alpha, the Star Trek Wiki
The barrier was found to have a negative density, negative radiation, and negative energy.
Shields could not block all the energies of the barrier; the leakage was sufficient to damage systems (warp drive was particularly vulnerable) and cause physiological changes in certain individuals, typically those with high esper ratings.
During an attack by the Calamarain, the Enterprise-E was forced to hide in the barrier, but Lieutenant Reginald Barclay managed to come up with the idea of using the bio-neural gel packs to absorb the psychic energy from the barrier to enhance their shields, providing some improved protection from the barrier's psychic influence.

 barrier
If the backfilled soil is not packed in tight, when the rhizomes contact with the barrier, they may be able to travel down through the loose soil and escape beneath the barrier, undetected.
Avoid digging too close to the barrier with a sharp tool or anything that could potentially damage the barrier, and never allow a mower or any other machinery to damage the protruding edges.
It is recommended that you annually prune any rhizomes that track along the edges of your barrier as, over a several year period, they can build up a tremendous amount of pressure which, in some cases, can eventually cause the barrier to fail.

But the wavefunction associated with a free particle must be continuous at the barrier and will show an exponential decay inside the barrier.
The wavefunction must also be continuous on the far side of the barrier, so there is a finite probability that the particle will tunnel through the barrier.
As a particle approaches the barrier, it is described by a free particle wavefunction.

This means that when the Fire Barrier II is applied it can be dried with the aid of heat i.e., clothes dryer, hair dryer, oven baking, hot air gun, etc. and the polymer base will adhere to the fibers of the material be it wood or fabric.
Depending upon the application, Fire Barrier II works in concert with water saturation and dispersion to blend with the polymer ingredients and attaches itself around the wood, paper or fabric fibers and provides a retardant non or semi-durable protection of flame retardancy.
