where [[gamma].sub.s0] = 0.9 and M, [h.sub.0], [f.sub.y], j, k, and As are the bending moment of the section, the effective height of the foundation slab, the design value of the tensile strength of the steel reinforcement, the slope correction coefficient, the effective width correction coefficient, and the area of the tensile steel reinforcement, respectively.
Ulander [25] proposed a radiometric slope correction method based on the angle between the slope surface and the image plane, and proved that the former correction algorithms that based on local incidence angles or surface tilt angles were approximations to his correction method.
It uses a variable speed fan to detect grain-kernel size and density, using the fan speed information to adapt the throwing angle and amount of lateral movement for more precise slope correction and amount of sideways shaking action.
