cartesian coordinate system

[kär′tē·zhən kō′ȯrd·nət ‚sis·təm]
(mathematics)
A coordinate system in n dimensions where n is any integer made by using n number axes which intersect each other at right angles at an origin, enabling any point within that rectangular space to be identified by the distances from the n lines. Also known as rectangular cartesian coordinate system.

In Figure 6, it shows that the ratio of 5 m diameter and the wavelength is D/L = 0.5; it uses the spectrum analysis method and then obtains the wave response curve of diffraction wave force in X direction of which the wave force values are Pmax =221 KN (f = 1.2 Hz) and Pmin = 81 KN (f = 0.21 Hz); frequency ranges from 0.21 Hz to 141 Hz, wave diffraction angle in XY plane ranges from -88[degrees] to -83.5[degrees], and frequency varies from 0.21 Hz to 1.41 Hz.
