Problem example with phased array being distance d with scanning line: a--having planar surfaces it is not tricky to calculate focus point; b--from algorithmic point of view real transducer can be transformed into transducer having infinite elements with fixed aperture (in this paper it will be called scan line).
At the outcrop scale, where bedding plays a primary role and usually defines mechanical layer boundaries, the stratabound fracture systems are the principal target of the scan line survey.
As shown in Figure 3, the starting points for connecting two scan lines are [l.sub.k](l) and [l.sub.k+1](1); the end point are [l.sub.k](t) and [l.sub.k+1] (t).
ABSTRACT: This paper analyzes the scan line survey data of the geological discontinuities collected from three quarry sites of West Malvern in Malvern Hills UK which remaine done of the major resource of geological materials for building stones and aggregates in the area.
While standard pulsed-wave Doppler echocardiography provides the temporal distribution of blood flow velocities in a specific location, color M-mode propagation velocity provides the spatiotemporal map of these velocities of the blood flow along the scan line from the mitral annulus to the left ventricle (LV) apex.
For example, a typical command could set the number of data points in a scan line, the step size per pixel, or the sample rate for the ADC.
Unlike other spectral imaging systems that scan line by line, the Arrow behaves like an ordinary camera in that data is collected in snapshot format rather than scanning format.
The total number of sound pulses needed to make 1 image depends upon number of pulses per scan line, the sector size, and the line density.
(3) 4:2:2:A method of representing video that records the luminance signal and corresponding color signal for a single scan line in a 4:2 ratio, ensuring excellent color fidelity and limiting color degradation during multiple encoding and decoding steps.
A vertical scan line is used in order to pass through the document starting from the right-most column.
The net result is a 10X magnification of the vertical scan angle, converting the diffraction fringes' linear motion into rotational motion, yet stabilising the fringes as a stationary pattern, to create a horizontal scan line with the requisite 3D information, albeit only with horizontal parallax.
The head was then repositioned to the left side of the target area and the y-position incremented by one unit (moved up by one unit) and the process repeated to obtain the second scan line. This process was then repeated until the entire target area was systematically scanned and then a pseudo-three-dimensional picture was made by displacing adjacent line scans vertically and plotting them as shown in Fig.
