The relationship of mass reduction to flux reduction has been modeled by many
researchers recently [Rao et al., 2001; Rao and Jawitz, 2003; Parker and Park, 2004; Jawitz et
al., 2005; Falta et al., 2005a,b; Enfield et al., 2005; Wood et al., 2005; Basu et al., 2006]. A
modified version of this is described in Eq. 1-15, where fractional mass reduction (1-M/-1..) is
plotted against fractional flux reduction (1-C/Co).
(1-15)
Figure 1-3 presents the relationship described in Eq 1-15.

Fractional Mass Reduction
Flux reduction to mass reduction relationship. The black line down
the middle (3 = 1) represents a situation where equal amount of flux reduction is
produced from a mass reduction. The lines to the right (P3 < 1) indicate the
conditions where larger amounts of mass must be removed to realize reductions in
flux. In the left region (3 > 1) smaller mass reductions produce greater flux
reduction.
