From the cumulative frequency curve of the nose landing gear's three directional loads, the sinking speed [V.sub.V] = 5.41 m/s, the pitching angle [[theta].sub.P] = 0.62[degrees], and the rolling angle [[theta].sub.R] = 3.93[degrees] under the condition that the largest course load of the nose landing gear is 133 kN.
This latter curve (the RPM frequency curve) was recently introduced in Dal Moro et al.
Caption: FIGURE 5: (a) Phase versus frequency curve of the readout coil when the Q factor [Q.sub.1] increased and (b) the influence of [Q.sub.1] on the value of [DELTA][[theta].sub.1] and [DELTA][[theta].sub.2].
These characteristics of the frequency curve can be used for classifying the type of image (for a given radiological position) and extract the texture of the organ.
Figure 9 shows the simulated impedance versus frequency curve. The real component of impedance (Z) is nearly equal to 50 Q and an imaginary component of around 0[degrees] at both frequencies.
If we draw the frequency of particles in relation to size over a logarithmic scale we obtain the characteristic frequency curve of the Particles Size Distribution (PSD).
It is found that when the radius r changes the antenna resonant frequency curve has a slight change, that is to say, the changes of r has little effect on the antenna resonant frequency.
The flood frequency curve, typically estimated from observed flood records and widely used in flood estimation practice, is the culmination of complex interactions between climatic inputs (rainfall intensities, evaporation demand) and those landscape properties that have a bearing on the rainfall to runoff to flood peak transformation, presented within a stochastic framework [4, 5, 6, 7, 8].
The model is rerun for generating the flood frequency curve for each four distributions with two different methods.
Washington, May 8 (ANI): Making computer-generated vocals a success has been a distant dream, since the tweaking of the frequency curve is labor intensive and prone to human error.
frequency curve. There are many high frequency circuit materials to choose from but finding the right circuit material, which fills all of these requirements, will reduce the available choices.
