root-mean-square value

[′rüt ‚mēn ′skwer ′val·yü]
Abbreviated rms value.
(physics)
The square root of the time average of the square of a quantity; for a periodic quantity the average is taken over one complete cycle. Also known as effective value.
(statistics)

root-mean-square values of the electric field strength are determined near a plain which is perpendicular to the PTL wires' direction in the area of the maximal wires approaching to the earth.
Comparison of root-mean-square values obtained by using this software with data from [11] are presented in Fig.
The maximum input root-mean-square value of the ADC is about 255/6 = 42.
In addition, the root-mean-square value of the detected wave increased in accordance with the cut-off cycles, and this tendency became clearer with more termites.
The relationships between the number of termites and the root-mean-square value of the detected wave for experiments 1a and 1b are shown in Figure 5.
The relationships between the plywood thickness and the root-mean-square value of the detected wave are shown in Figure 7.
