D-value


Also found in: Wikipedia.

D-value

i. The difference between the actual height of a certain pressure surface over sea level and the height of the same pressure surface of the International Standard Atmosphere. It is the difference between the reading of a radio altimeter and a pressure altimeter while flying over the sea. Also known as a D-factor.
ii. The amount (positive or negative) by which the altitude (Z) of a point on an isobaric surface differs from the altitude (ZP) of the same isobaric surface in the ICAO Standard Atmosphere (i.e., D-value = Z—Zp) (ICAO).

The silage analysed at DM 27.9%, D-value 76.7%, ME12.3 MJ/kg and CP 15.9%.
wgo ms This silage has been analysed and has come back with dry matter content at 43 per cent, protein 19.9 per cent, and D-Value 71.7 per cent.
Other advantages include a smaller D-value, allowing the H145 to operate in more confined areas, simplified maintenance, and an increased availability rate.
However, the permeability D-value ([K.sub.3] - [k.sub.0]) decreases monotonously as soil LL increases.
The average linear distance between the lens equator and ciliary process, the difference value (D-value) between the same cross section of the above bilateral linear distance in the normal subjects and the lens subluxation in the most significant direction, the diagnostic accuracy, and the testing times obtained with 25 and 50 MHz UBM were compared.
The mean D-value for each survival curve was determined by each inactivation rate.

(2) The larger is the distance, the smaller are both the RSSI value and the RSSI D-Value between a value measured at a place and the value at the adjacent place.
Thus the D-value will be an apparent diffusion coefficient value.
The speed of [p.sub.2] can be concluded by distance and time d-value between [p.sub.1] and [p.sub.2].
In this study an attempt was made by studying the comparison between the design results of a multi-storied moment resisting frame structure in Karachi using the D-value method and ETABS software.
Many fingerprinting algorithms take the D-value of RSSI signatures to average a user and a reference location received as the basic parameter to compute the weights in an inverse correlation way.
