To describe nonsolitonic pulses, we break the link between peak amplitude and inverse duration by introducing an amplitude scaling parameter M.
where [H.sub.i] means the peak amplitude, [N.sub.i] means the peak time position, and [W.sub.i] means the half-width of each Gaussian wave, as shown in Figure 1.
The PEC A-scan response can be obtained and then the peak amplitude can be extracted.
Distinct peak amplitudes of HVSRs for the stations located on the Baltic Shield, the southern slope of the Baltic Shield and the sedimentary cover of the northwestern part of East European Platform were revealed.

To detect the onset and offset time of each swallowing event, we considered 10% of the peak amplitude as a threshold level.
Vertical cursors were placed on the onset and offset of the swallow sound for each task as shown in Figure 3 and the outcome measurements such as maximum peak amplitude ([micro]V) and total time duration (msec) were measured.
The circuit in [9] used traditional analog envelop detector for gain adjustment, so it can only realize simple peak amplitude control and can not be used in high-resolution multifrequency input condition.
It can be seen that relative velocity feedback can also reduce the resonance peak amplitude of the vibration system.
