By applying the adjusting factors for shield loss and tail loss estimation obtained from the down-track tunnel analysis, upper, medium, and lower values of settlement were estimated for the up-track tunnel case using the actual operation data recorded in the down-track TBM and trough width factor ([i.sub.x]/H) obtained from the Gaussian curve fitting for the down-track tunnel.
The odds of us being right are 25 percent on the near end and 25 percent in the far end of the Gaussian curve.

Equation (2) is the Gaussian curve which will be used in the simulations to demonstrate the performance of the GRCM-PSO method; (3) is a 5-parameter curve which will be used in the experiments to show the practicability of our method:
Based on previous studies [17, 18] and the curve-fitting results (Figure 5(b)), peaks of Gaussian curve were ascribed to [beta]-sheet, [beta]-turn, [alpha]-helix, and disordered structure, respectively.
The quantitative methods which work well in statistics, including the bell curve or Gaussian curve, can accurately predict the future income of a dentist--but not the value of the future work of someone named Bruce Springsteen when he is 17 years old.

Analysis with the GcTm algorithm of the dissociation data gave Tms with higher resolutions than those reported by the SDS software, based on a gaussian curve fitted to multiple data points (on average 5.25, Fig.
The Gaussian curve can be considered as the intensity distribution expected for binder surface reflections, without any contribution from pigment particles or pits.
The data were fit to a non linear Gaussian curve with 3 parameters;
The plateau in growth rate implied by the logistic dose-response curve or the maximum in growth rate for juvenile urchins well after settlement implied by the Gaussian curve suggests that urchin growth is not at its maximum when sea urchins first settle.
