parameterization

[pə‚ram·əd·ər·ə′zā·shən]
(science and technology)
The representation, in a dynamic model, of physical effects in terms of admittedly oversimplified parameters, rather than realistically requiring such effects to be consequences of the dynamics of the system.

In addition, they feature special functions such as starting time monitoring, automatic parameterization depending on motor startup, pump stop to avoid pressure peaks in piping systems, and condition monitoring with warning and alarm limits.
Stochastic parameterization is the approach to represent uncertainty in the model formulation with stochastic terms.
High-resolution numerical modeling has specific issues to deal with, as the choice to include or not cumulus parameterization schemes (CPS), and explicit microphysics.
Furthermore, numerical problems may arise if one wants to apply the same parameterization algorithm to a marine-, truck-, or a small automotive-size compressor, since mass flow and compressor speed values are very dependent of the compressor size.
Experimental testing of tires on ice can illustrate the influence of operational parameters on the tractive, braking, and handling performance of a tire, and can provide the necessary validation data for tire-ice interaction models, as well as for the parameterization of these models.
Optimal Time Parameterization. Obviously, the problem ([TOCP.sup.h]) is a problem with unspecified terminal time.
Combining with the thought of feature parameterization [14], the main contribution of this paper lies in the development of a rapid method for the plate design from the fractured femur of a specific patient.
Great values of the intrinsic curvature [c.sup.l] indicate the nonlinearity intensity of the response function and the high value for the parametric curve [c.sup.[theta]] indicates that the parameterization of the model is responsible for higher distance from the linear form.
(2009), the discrepancies might be caused by poor representative of the convective parameterization and hydrological cycle.
Instead, we determined the correspondence in an indirect manner with the help of parameterization techniques, which consists of establishing a one-to-one mapping between the mesh surface and a common 2D domain.
Pepperl+Fuchs introduced Series IO Ultrasonic Sensors with pushbutton programming that provides fast and easy on-site sensor parameterization without any software.
Once installed, the Counter Module's high I/0, operational mode and parameterization flexibility allows engineers and machine builders to set up sophisticated counting applications with minimal effort.
