 Transverse and Longitudinal Waves   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
For transverse waves the displacement of the medium is perpendicular to the direction of propagation of the wave.
Transverse waves cannot propagate in a gas or a liquid because there is no mechanism for driving motion perpendicular to the propagation of the wave.
In longitudinal waves the displacement of the medium is parallel to the propagation of the wave.

 Deep Transverse Massage
Transverse massage is applied by the finger(s) directly to the lesion and transverse to the direction of the fibres.
Transverse friction massage imposes rhytmical stress transversely to the remodelling collagenous structures of the connective tissue and thus reorients the collagen in a longitudinal ashion.
Transverse friction aims to achieve a transverse sweeping movement over the longitudinal muscular fibres without pulling on the tear, so preventing (in the early stage) or breaking down (in the chronic stage) adhesion formation between the individual fibres and between individual fibres and the surrounding connective tissue.

 Transverse myelitis definition - Medical Dictionary definitions of popular medical terms   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Transverse myelitis: A disease of the spinal cord in which there is demyelination (erosion of the myelin sheath that normally protects nerve fibers).
Transverse myelitis can cause low back pain, spinal cord dysfunction, muscle spasms, a general feeling of discomfort, headache, loss of appetite, and numbness or tingling in the legs.
Transverse myelitis may be caused by viral infections, spinal cord injuries, immune disorders (including systemic lupus erythematosus, Sjogren's syndrome, sarcoidosis and multiple sclerosis) or insufficient blood flow through the blood vessels in the spinal cord.

 Transverse and Oblique Projections
Transverse and oblique conic projections are almost never used, although transverse conic projections with the apex of the cone centred over the Pacific Ocean might be useful for mapping the Pacific rim.
Oblique and transverse azimuthal projections are quite common and are often used to show routes to and from a particular city or to map small areas with approximately equal spatial extents in all directions..
Oblique and transverse projections are often difficult to produce maually but can be easily produced using computer software that generates maps based on latitude and longitude co-ordinates describing the locations of geographic features.

 Transverse rotation and longitudinal translation during prosthetic gait-A literature review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
They not only found that the amount of transverse rotation of the pelvis was greater with the transverse rotation adapter unlocked compared to when it was locked, but they also found that the relative amount of transverse rotation between pelvis and socket increased and the torque at the adapter decreased.
Transverse rotation of up to 20° in each direction was considered a sufficient range with mechanical stops and a unit to return the adapter to its neutral state that can be customized for each amputee, whereby no reasons were given for these considerations.
However, with a transverse rotation adapter incorporated in the shin section and later in the thigh section, the tests were inconclusive regarding the location of a transverse rotation adapter, possibly because of lack of statistical power having studied the gait of two subjects only.

 Student Research Paper: Transverse Myelitis
Transverse myelitis is a neurological disorder characterized by inflammation across both sides of one level, or segment, of the spinal cord.
From this wide array of symptoms, four classic features of transverse myelitis emerge that are essentially the symptoms used for diagnosis (particularly for idiopathic cases): (1) weakness of the legs and arms, (2) pain, (3) sensory alteration (dysaethesia), and (4) bowel and bladder dysfunction.
Transverse Myelitis may also result from a spinal injury or, as in a recent case, subsequent to an epidural or spinal anesthetic given during childbirth.

 Transverse waves
The amplitude of a transverse wave is half the distance measured vertically from the crest to the trough.
Water waves are known as transverse waves because the motion of the water is up and down, or at right angles to the direction in which the waves are traveling.
Unlike transverse waves, which travel at right angles to the direction of propagation, sound waves travel back and forth in the same direction as the wave motion.

 The Sector
Each of these may be again bisected by taking the transverse distance at 2½ or 2·5, that is, at the middle division between the 2 and the 3 upon the line of lines, and the line will be divided as required.
For, taking the given line between the compasses, open the sector till that extent becomes the transverse distance of 10 and 10, then the transverse distance of 6 and 6 will be the length of each of the two equal sides of the isosceles triangle.
For a tangent, make the given line a transverse distance at 45 on the lower tangents; then take the extent of the given radius, and apply it to the lower tangents; and the complement of the degrees at which it becomes a transverse distance will be the number of degrees required.

 Transverse Myelitis Information Page: National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS)
In people with transverse myelitis, inflammation usually occurs at the thoracic (upper back) level, causing problems with leg movement and bowel and bladder control, which require signals from the lower segments of the spinal cord.
The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) conducts research related to transverse myelitis in its laboratories at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and also supports additional transverse myelitis research through grants to major medical institutions across the country.
The knowledge gained from such research should lead to a greater knowledge of the mechanisms responsible for transverse myelitis and may ultimately provide a means to prevent and treat this disorder.

 OVERVIEW OF TRANSVERSE RANGES GEOLOGY, CALIFORNIA   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
The Transverse Ranges of southern California represent one of the most complex, diverse, and enigmatic geological provinces in the United States.
The San Gabriel Mountains are bounded on the north by the San Andreas fault, and to the south by the east-west-trending left-lateral faults that separate the range from the San Fernando Valley, the Los Angeles basin, and the Pomona Valley.
The east-west trending transverse fault system bounding the southern margin of the range is, like the San Andreas fault, active; one of these faults caused the 1971 San Fernando earthquake (magnitude 6+) that caused 2 m of uplift and 2 m of left-lateral translation in the western part of the San Gabriel Mountains.
