  • Leakage

    A leakage occurs when fluid is lost through a leak.

  • Duct leakage testing

    A duct leakage tester is a diagnostic tool designed to measure the airtightness of forced air heating, ventilating and air-conditioning (HVAC) ductwork. A duct leakage tester consists of a calibrated fan for measuring an air flow rate and a pressure sensing device to measure the pressure created by the fan flow. The combination of pressure and fan flow measurements are used to determine the ductwork airtightness. The airtightness of ductwork is useful knowledge when trying to improve energy conservation.

    Reverse leakage current in a semiconductor device is the current from that semiconductor device when the device is reverse biased.

    Sensory leakage

    Sensory leakage is a term used to refer to information that transferred to a person by conventional means (other than Psi) during an experiment into Psi.

  • Leakage (retail)

    Retail leakage occurs when local people spend a larger amount of money on goods than local businesses report in sales, usually due to people traveling to a neighboring town to buy goods. Retail sales leakage occurs when there is unsatisfied demand within the trading area and that the locality should provide extra stores spaces for such type of businesses. After all, retail leakage does not necessarily translate into opportunity. For instance, there could be a tough competition in a nearby locality that leads the market for same type of product. Many small - to medium-sized communities experience leakage of retail expenditures as local citizens drive to neighboring towns to shop at national retail chains (e.g. Tesco, Asda ) or eat at national restaurant chains (e.g. Slug and Lettuce, Harvester ). Attracting such national retail chain stores and restaurants to a community can prevent this type of expenditure leakage and create local jobs.

  • Anal leakage

    Anal leakage may refer to:

  • Wet leakage current test

    The wet leakage current test is an electrical withstanding test carried out on electrical appliances to test the electrical isolation of the housing. The test is carried out by submersing the appliance into water with one lead attached to the electrical leads of the appliance, and the other lead connected to the water. It is often carried out on photovoltaic modules in order to qualify them for IEC61646 or IEC61625 certification.
