An offset distance of [lambda]/4 was maintained between the ground plane and the antenna, as shown in Figure 5.
Thus, the tension of the gluteus muscle after BS-THA would be relatively increased when the leg length and offset distance between the pelvis and femur would be longer than those before surgery.
The minimum and maximum torques due to the force from the AFM probe (500 nN) on the unbalanced part at corresponding offset distance of 2.5 [micro]m and 7.5 [micro]m from the centre of rotation are 1.25 pN*m and 3.75 pN*m which are almost six orders of magnitude greater compared to the added torque due to the unbalanced weight on the torsional springs.
The robotic manipulation of the blast nozzle maintains the optimum surface speed, blasting angle and the exact offset distance from blast nozzle to component.
The offset distance between the anatomic CoR and the implant CoR was measured with positive x-axis in the medial direction and positive y-axis pointing superior.
The offset distance can be computed as the difference from the initial right and left points (20).
It is designed to enable tasks such as removing debris or installing capping, containment or related equipment at a safe offset distance from an incident site.
The comparing results show that the inconsistencybetween the mode shapes derived by the undeveloped method become larger with the increasing offset distance. However, after improvement, the mode shapes derived by two developed methods are in extremely good agreement with each other even the offset distance between the gravity center of the tip-mass and the attachment point is large.
If there are obstacles on the line, a new turning point with a random offset distance d perpendicular to the line segment would be generated from the middle of the line.
In this paper, a strict definition of generalized offsets, which have the variable offset distance and direction, is given.
