An Empirical Model of Slope Ratio Comparisons

Justin Talbot, John Gerth, Pat Hanrahan
2012 IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics  
s experimental design, we develop an empirical model of slope ratio estimation that fits more extreme slope ratio judgments and two common slope ratio estimation strategies.  ...  We conclude with an application of our model to aspect ratio selection.  ...  Based on insights gained from a series of pilot studies (Section 4), we develop an empirical model of human slope ratio judgments (Section 5). 2.  ...

Estimating sediment delivery ratio by stream slope and relief ratio

Kieu Anh Nguyen, Walter Chen, C. Hamontree
2018 MATEC Web of Conferences  
Because steep terrain is a characteristic feature of the study area, two SDR models that depend on the slope of the mainstream channel and the relief-length ratio of the watershed are chosen.  ...  It is found that the Maner (1958) model, which uses the relief-length ratio, is the better model of the two.  ...  In order to clarify this problem, we further compare the two models in this study. Research method The two empirical models are described below.  ...

Empirically Derived Biplane Lift as a Function of Gap and Stagger

Hantae Kang, Nicola Genco, Aaron Altman
2013 Journal of Aircraft  
This model has a gap of 0.84c, an averaged stagger of (—) 0.6c, and no décalage. The aspect ratio was 2.63 for the model seen in the figure.  ...  As the models were sidewall (floor) mounted they have an effective aspect ratio twice their geometric aspect ratio.  ...
