b) the value of the repulsive force averaged in the transverse dimension on the interval y[member of] [-b, b] and in phase [psi][member of] [0, 2x]
Consideration of Taylor series consistency also reveals an existence of artificial repulsive force in gradient model of MPS method (Tsuruta et al., 2013).
Fruchterman and Reingold [8] improved the force-directed method by introducing the attractive forces and the repulsive forces. This improved force-directed method is called the F-R method in the following.
If the PFM employs only the repulsive force of the closest obstacle in numerical implementation, the robot may oscillate at the points where it is between multiple obstacles.
Similarly, the mechanical worldview taking natural external force and natural repulsive force as the core also considers and includes various situations and combinations related to "gravity", "repulsion", and the like.
When particle size increases, the increase of repulsive force is bigger than attractive force resulting in smaller critical point and difficult aggregation.
where d(i, j) is the Euclidean distance between sensor node i and sensor node j; [F.sub.exc] is the repulsive force between sensor node i and sensor node j, also known as the exclusive power; r is the perception radius of any sensor node.
(2) a new artificial repulsive force to resolve tensile instability issues on account of inaccurate density estimation, which can nicely avoid particle clumping near the fluid surface.
On the other hand, the Coulomb repulsive force among the liquid droplet was another reason for the satellite dots.
Magnetic levitation systems use the repulsive force between magnetic flux for motion, whereas Olev uses magnetic flux which is converted into electrical energy to drive motors.
