People can automate their maps to record traffic problems, hazardous conditions, or other transient phenomena.
The goal of this research was to provide methodologies for avoiding these transient phenomena.
Her numerous contributions to the fields of astronomy and astrophysics have expanded scientific understanding of fleeting, transient phenomena in the Milky Way galaxy and throughout the universe.
With its 28-metre size mirror and height of a 20 storey building when pointing up, the new telescope will be able to slew twice as fast as the smaller telescopes to immediately respond to fast and transient phenomena such as gamma ray bursts anywhere in the sky.
Cataloged as PTF 10fqs, and visible as a yellow-orange star in the top-left corner of this image, it was first spotted by the Palomar Transient Facility, which scans the skies for sudden changes in brightness (or transient phenomena, to use astronomers' jargon).
Pan-STARRS, short for Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System, scans the entire night sky for all kinds of transient phenomena, including supernovae.
Therefore, it may be expected that dynamical transient phenomena may be identified not only in rotating parts but also in vertical oscillations.
A telescope such as SALT frequently operates in a 'target-of-opportunity' mode, whereby observations are triggered by transient phenomena.
This work is of great importance in refining the accuracy of the historical record and helping us to understand the true nature of reported transient phenomena.
The simplest CFD approach typically used in building airflow simulations is the Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) method, which filters all of the transient phenomena and solves each building airflow pattern as a quasi-steady-state problem.
Then he discusses such aspects as equations for transient phenomena, fossil fuels and their technology, chain efficiencies from capture to utilization, energy and its sequels, and the future as a moving green target.
Hence Wavelet has advantages over traditional Fourier Transfor in analyzing accurately the power system transient phenomena where signals contain low power frequency and transient such as discontinuities, sags and sharp spikes.
