Sterrett considers the way Wittgenstein employs the development of sound recordings in discussing logical form in the Tractatus (Wittgenstein does not use examples in which similarity is based on visual or geometrical similarity): the features of the symphony from the standpoint of logical structure are those features of the symphony that are used in applying the rule by which the score is obtained from the symphony.
For K to be material constant it is necessary to maintain geometrical similarity by increasing the depth of foundation h in proportion to the contact width a.
In the modelling process the principle of geometrical similarity with the scale factor m = 1/100 is used.
How can we study multiple batch sizes and blade designs quickly and efficiently while retaining geometrical similarity in blade design?
It is also desirable to have the capability for maintaining geometrical similarity or providing for specific changes in geometrical characteristics upon scaleup.
The modular nature of the blades either preserves geometrical similarity or provides for geometrical variation at different batch sizes.
Starting from the geometrical similarity of turning process, where cutting tools with radius in the tool centre are used and from the mathematical model (2) of roughness (Braha et al., 2003) one will analyze figure no.
