radial displacement

On vertical photographs, the apparent "leaning out," or the apparent displacement of the top of any object having height in relation to its base. The direction of displacement is radial from the principal point on a true vertical, or from the isocentre on a vertical photograph distorted by tip or tilt.

They found that no graft reconstruction limited proximal radial displacement as effectively as the native IOM.
The radial displacement of cam presented as [U.sub.1] in Abaqus, is one of the main criterion of dimensional precision.
In this paper, the radial displacement would be divided into two parts, i.e., the random displacement and the unbalanced displacement; the inverse system decoupling control strategy is adopted to control the random displacement, and a vibration compensation controller is adopted to suppress or eliminate the unbalanced displacement.
where [u.sub.r] is the radial displacement and [[epsilon].sub.r] and [[epsilon].sub.[theta]] represent the radial and hoop strains, respectively.
Figure 2 shows a curve for the radial displacement and hoop stress amplitude with a dimensionless frequency for the two models of a uniform elastic medium.
Changes in the deformation, radial displacement, and circumferential stress of the PTCL with gradual decreases in the tunnel crown thickness are investigated.
The curves of radial displacement [u.sub.r] at the inner side of the drainage hole changing with distances from the gas drainage hole center are given in Fig.
The uniform radial displacement of shroud/case and the rotating components created by the uniform loads such as centrifugal, thermal, and internal pressure always bring about axisymmetric clearance changes; centrifugal and thermal loads are responsible for the largest radial variations in tip clearance [1,16-19].
On the other hand, as for the precision of radial displacement estimation, both methods (with and without learning) are similar, shown in Figure 5.

For the part of suspension force control, the traditional method is by detecting the radial displacement of the rotor, and the given value of suspension force is obtained by the PID modulation, which can realize the closed-loop control of the suspension force [17].
The spatial position of any point on the drill string can be determined by the axial displacement, radial displacement, and angular displacement.
