In the AMS definition, "critical" is defined by whether waves can propagate upstream, or if the flow is faster than all wave speeds. The more atmospheric relevant internal wave can arise in a stratified flow when a light fluid, resting underneath a reference atmosphere of remarkably larger depth, is intruded by a dense fluid or a solid obstruction.
5, the experimental results of square wave speed and trapezoidal direction angle references under load of 20 kg are given to investigate the performance of the proposed controller.
The model's parameters are [alpha] = [beta] = [gamma] = 1, [omega] = 1.5, and wave speed c = 0.5 and the fundamental period is L [approximately equal to] 25.13.
Users are prompted to enter several parameters that will be tested: that is, the width of the gate time, the minimum source wave speed, and the maximum source wave speed.
The precision of our method could be influenced by several factors including sensor installation errors, structural damage (corrosion, rust, and crack), environmental conditions, errors of wave speeds, and errors of the time differences.
We examine the posterior distribution of the wave speed to analyze the SFD by giving the state sequence and cell density, as shown in Figure 9.
The wave speed is high at lower frequencies, and the distance between these two beads is small.
where ([[phi].sub.1], [[phi].sub.2]) [member of] [C.sup.2](R, [R.sup.2]) is the wave profile and c > 0 is the wave speed. Therefore, ([[phi].sub.1], [[phi].sub.2]) and c satisfy

Other works use this method to obtain estimates on the combustion wave speed, temperature, and oxygen concentration; see [3-5, 9] and references therein.
where [f.sub.max] is the highest frequency under consideration and c is the lowest wave speed in the elastic materials.
