Schroeder [5] noticed a low peak factor of the frequency-modulated signals and his formulas are based on intuitive concept concerning an asymptotic relationship between the power spectra of signals and their instantaneous frequencies.
The response peak factor is defined as the ratio of the maximum value of acceleration to its RMS values and is taken as a parameter to represent the fluctuations in the structural response (Adhikari, Yamaguchi 1997).
The correlation between cable acceleration response peak factors and mean wind velocity are also discussed.
Relation between response peak factors and mean wind speed
6, the peak factors for wind-rain excitation event at deck level during 16:51 to 21:36 of 1 April 2003 show no clearly increasing tendency with increase in the mean wind speed when the averaging time is 10 min or 1 min, the peak factors are not affected by the increase in mean wind velocity.
However, it was not detected significant variation of the peak factor for the epoxy phase, that is, in samples containing up to 17 wt% PBzMA, [GAMMA] takes values between 25 and 32[degrees]C and in neat epoxy [GAMMA] - 32[degrees]C.
sp] is the secondary peak factor, whose value depends to a large extent on configuration of daily load curves.
A common tool for evaluating a signal's peak factor characteristics is the complementary cumulative density function (CCDF).
Multicarrier phase-aligned signals can be used to simulate a range of peak factors and CCDFs.
Also, this will translate into lower peak factors for our customers.
