Despite this, this study has shown that the relationship between both the major and minor axis length and power output in an oscillating water column wave energy device and the how the length of the major and minor axes changes with forcing period ratios produced theoretically with WAMIT and OrcaFlex in the numerical analysis (Stanham, McCarthy, and Stappenbelt 2016) can be reproduced experimentally.

where [L.sub.M] and [L.sub.N] are the major axis length and the minor axis length, respectively.
In particular, features of highest between-class statistical differences at the 5% level (p < 0.005 and p corrected <0.05) and of good correlation (r > [absolute value of 0.4]) with the advancing CIN grade were found in eight features: three morphological features (nucleus solidity, nucleus minor axis length, and nucleus equivalent diameter) and five textural features (4 Tamura coarseness and gray-level nonuniformity).
The change in the magnetic field when the alignment is changed by moving the transmit coil by 0 mm to 25 mm in the minor axis direction of the ellipse is shown in Figure 4(a).
Mean (SD) 15.13 <0.01 0.002 0.003 Range Table 3 Number of eggs of Argentine anchoita (Engraulis anchoita) sampled (AD, frequency of occurrence (FO), and mean and standard deviation (SD) values of abundance, egg volume, egg major axis, and egg minor axis, obtained during summer and winter of 2001 and 2002 in the northern area of the Southeastern Brazilian Bight.
Features namely maximum length of the detected edge, the ratio major and minor axis, number of pixel, maximum convolution, and the number of intersection were analyzed and used to create a prediction model to identify the surface of dorsal and ventral.
The excited plasmon hybridization modes at different frequencies under major axis and minor axis polarized incidences are shown in Figure 3.
[3] measured the basic physical parameters of eggshells with the following results: the egg size and egg-shape index (the ratio of the major axis to the minor axis of an egg) had an impact on the static compressive strength of an egg; the smaller end of the egg, which served as the compression end, was able to bear a larger load under static compression [4]; the thickness of the eggshell greatly affected the maximum loading capacity; the curvature radius at the vertex of each end of the egg correlated significantly with the maximum loading capacity, which increased as the curvature radius increased [5].
According to the major axis and minor axis' lengths of each original segmented nucleus, the corresponding ellipse is obtained and we select 12 boundary points with the same interval ([pi]/6).
The features included Perimeter, Area, Major axis length, Minor axis length, Filled area, Orientation, Equiv diameter, Euler number, Solidity, Extent, Eccentricity and Convex Area (Russ, 1999).
The major and minor axis angles (the smallest angle between the arm cranking and the major or minor axis, respectively) were 96.5[degrees] and -3.5[degrees], and the angle between the major and minor axes was fixed at 80[degrees] (for technical information, see Horvais et al., 2007 or Ratel et al., 2004).
ellipse(81,70,16,32); // Draw the left eye with an ellipse at coordinates (x,y) = (81,70) and minor axis of length 16 and major axis of length 32
The length of the probe's minor axis was, respectively, at 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 10, and 20 cm, while that of its major axis along the z-direction was 52 cm.
