delay time

[di′lā ‚tīm]
(control systems)
The amount of time by which the arrival of a signal is retarded after transmission through physical equipment or systems.
(electronics)
The time taken for collector current to start flowing in a transistor that is being turned on from the cutoff condition.
(industrial engineering)
A span of time during which a worker is idle because of factors beyond personal control.

delay time

The amount of time an arriving aircraft must lose to cross the meter-fix at the assigned meter-fix time. This is the difference between ACLT (actual calculated landing time) and VTA (vectored time of arrival). See also actual calculated landing time and vectored time of arrival.

Meanwhile, studies also found that delay time may be magnified when two subsequent flights are sharing the same aircraft (Kondo [10]).
However, the demands to develop optical delay approach with large delay time, high tenability, and easy integration for optical communication are ever increasing.
The characteristics examined included delay time, throughput, and rear-end and lane-changing conflicts.
In our previous work, peak amplitude and delay time were employed to gauge paper basis weight in a least squares [28].
Usually, an empirical threshold is used to develop a reduced mechanism first, and then the validation of the reduced mechanism is conducted by the comparison of the simulation result and experiment or other researchers' reduced mechanism on ignition delay time, laminar flame speed, important species, heat releasing rate, and so forth.
