where [L.sup.S.sub.eff] is the effective length of a sinusoidal waveform which has the area equal to a haversine pulse with effective length of [L.sup.H.sub.eff].
It is possible that, under the effects of haversine traffic loads, the dissipation of forces was primarily depending on the absorption of the structure itself and the reflection of the subjacent layer.
Geographical distance is calculated using the "Haversine formula, which calculates the shortest distance between two points on the surface of a sphere based on their longitudes and latitudes.
While travel time could be calculated from the zip centroid to the SNF, it may not necessarily be more accurate than Haversine distance as patients can live in different parts of a zip code, and travel time calculation with the scale of this study data can be computationally intensive.
