An important issue in the experimental implementation of the methodology is the synchronization of the acceleration record and the sinusoidal function to minimize the effect of the phase lag.
When the parameters in the sinusoidal function are estimated, then the cycle or period ([OMEGA]) can be computed as [OMEGA] = [absolute value of 2[pi]/[rho]], if 0 < [rho] < 1 (Brockwell & Davis 2010).
In this part, the teacher discusses, in detail, the critical components of the sinusoidal function such as amplitude, period, horizontal, and vertical shift, and how these quantities can be identified and measured in the experiment.
In this paper, a hardware solution for generating sinusoidal function in samples instead of the look-in tables and D/A converters is proposed [5], on this way all advantages of the synthesis given in [4] are kept (preserved).
The changes of output mass flow rate and output composition fluctuation with time were predicted for various time dependent input modes such as step function and sinusoidal function inputs into the second feeder and other ports part way along the length of the machine.
As shown in Figure 2c, plots of orientation rates (d[theta]/dt) against orientation angle ([theta]) fit well to the sinusoidal function of Equation 11.
For example, with M = 20, results obtained with Tchebychev polynomials are in poorer agreement compared to Bessel and sinusoidal functions, even though the residuals of the Bessel function are less than the sinusoidal function.
