Stiffness as a function of position along the radial fiber direction is plotted as a line profile shown in Figure 3(a).
If the above frequencies enter into a model collision integral explicitly, then the line profile derived from the respective muster equation for a density matrix will contain these frequencies as adjustable parameters [9, 10].
The cross-sectional line profile along the red line in the AFM topographic image of Ag NDA is shown in Figure 5(a), with an average height of 20 [+ or -] 5 nm corresponding to the dots on the line.
The following analytical expression, introduced in [4] to model the feeding line profile, has been employed:
The actin network structure along the cell edge still existed, which is represented with the wide plateau in the line profile of actin staining.
The paper extracts the five feature elements of high-speed train via the eye-movement experiment, then uses shape grammar rules to make the line profile of the product modeling to get the planar elements from the front and side view, and make the quantitative analysis on 40 design elements of four kinds of high-speed train with the Fourier decomposition.
