On-center

As used in house construction, the distance from the center of one framing member to the center of another. In wood-frame construction, studs are typically 16 or 24 inches on-center.

In Figure 3 we compare the curves of the energies dependencies on the external magnetic field calculated for on-center donor in the circular QR (e = 0) in the effective mass approximation and in the framework of the Kane model.
The steering systems torsion bar stiffness has been increased by 12 per cent to improve steering responsiveness, and new steering calibration further improves on-center feel.

To move items, it uses a System Plast 2253RT motorized drive roller top belt with a 1-inch, on-center sphere array to handle very small packages.
Yes, he admits, the tuning is harsher and there's more road noise than is the case on a standard TLX, but on the spider diagram the handling (initial response and turn-in confidence) steering (on-center feel and gain level) and gross body motion are all much better than the standard car provides.
Graphics (a) and (b) correspond to the case without the presence of the impurity atom, and in the graphics (c) and (d) the system with on-center donor impurity atom is taken into account.
To counter this, Infiniti's Rack Electronic Power Steering precisely increases the steering effort required as the vehicle's yaw rate changes, before adjusting to provide more assistance when the wheel returns towards on-center. This all-new system provides a linear and in-control driving experience that can be tuned through the Drive Mode Selector.
If a customer needs to make sensitive steady state measurements to evaluate on-center handling properties, the company offers its steady-state systems.
In this research, the influence of tire force and moment (F&M) characteristics on vehicle on-center steering performance was analyzed and then how to improve vehicle on-center performance was studied through controlling tire structure design parameter, tread pattern shape and tread grip characteristics.
Steering was responsive but not touchy, with good on-center feel.
