The primary objective for resin producers is to produce consistent pellet geometries to a target length and diameter with no contamination from fines or foreign material.
For example, in a road traffic surveillance application, the classification thresholds "x-type car" may be: maximum and minimum distance (within the range in which the road exists), maximum and minimum speed (if into the section under surveillance it is feasible to define the range of the allowed speed limits), maximum and minimum target length (this may be the most reliable parameter), and finally, the pattern of the association algorithm from the integrated range profiles, and the integrated range-Doppler images.
Designed as an entry-level automated system with upgradable features to expand as needs develop, the A301 can be equipped with Automated Parent and Cut Core Handling, Auto-Indexing Knife, Extended Cut-off Target Length, Digital Length Measurement, and other features.
I suggested that they start again with a 50-page target length. The final version was the seventh draft and was not ready for distribution until early October.
Although she gave me a general target length for both stories, her main message was to write whatever I had, and we'd deal with the stow size later.
The target length is constrained by the scattering systematics and set to one mean-free-path of 20 cm.
These right-wing vanes are said to produce 10 times more arrow rotation than four-inch helical vanes, in lighter and shorter 1.5- and 2.75-inch lengths, allowing lightweight, target length vanes to be used for bowhunting applications.
The standard deviation of the chopping error from the target length (expected length) is also very important as a measure of overall performance and is calculated in a similar fashion as shown in Equation (4).
This localization software has been purposefully designed with game localization teams in mind, bringing the following features to the table: the contextual WYSIWYG translation, images, target length control and superior ID-based matching for more efficient localization.
Hence the measures -70 mm and +70 mm express, in fact, deviations from a target length that can be attributed to the harvester's length measuring device.
Target length and primer concentration affect the gain of c-erbB-2 and p53 amplicons.
