The RWTs at the inner concave and outer convex side of the curved section were measured at the bisector of the bending angle, that is, D30, D60, D90, and D120, as shown in Figure 2.
In Case I, relay [U.sub.R] is located on the perpendicular bisector between [U.sub.1] and [U.sub.2] and starting from PB, and the location of [U.sub.R] can be denoted by [D.sub.R], as shown in Fig.
According to theDaily Mail, Prince Edward, who called himelf "the Magical Bisector", apparently sawed nephew Peter Phillips - the son of Princess Anne and her first husband Captain Mark Phillips - in half.
When given after students learn how to construct an angle and perpendicular bisector, such a task can enable students to discover the usefulness of drawing both bisectors while strengthening their conceptual understanding of each bisector.
Thus, in [4] the connection of the strength and gradient of the magnetic field around the acute angle of the magnetic matrix with the direction of the bisector of this angle with respect to the direction of the external field is substantiated.
The bisector of the angle [angle]EAB is drawn through the vertex A, which intersects the side BC at the point F (see Figure 9).
Especially the symmetric axes u is just the angle bisector of the right angle between the positive x- and y-axes, and this indicates that the x and y axes are completely symmetrical in the metasurface structure, so [t.sub.yy] = [t.sub.xx], [t.sub.xy] = [t.sub.yx], and the same LP-to-CP polarization conversion can be realized at x- and y-polarized incidences.
The following options of fuzzy operators and defuzzification methods were tested: for input aggregation [MIN (minimum) and PROD (product)], for implication [MIN (minimum) and PROD (product)], for rule aggregation [MAX (maximum), SUM (sum of each rule's output set), and PROBOR (probabilistic OR)], and for defuzzification [CENTROID, BISECTOR, MOM (middle of maximum), LOM (largest of maximum), and SOM (smallest of maximum)].
L is the width of the obvious deformation zone at the surface, P is the horizontal distance from the maximum inclination point on the ground to the perpendicular bisector of the fault model, S is the horizontal distance from the midpoint of the shear zone to the model's perpendicular bisector, H is the thickness of the overlying soil, B is the fault dip angle, and d is the vertical displacement of the fault.
It can be seen that the grooves were skewed; that is, the bisector of any groove cross-sectional area is not perpendicular to the rock surface in the YZ plane.
The angle bisector is shown as a blackline and the regression line as a red dashed line.
