Comparison of Two Detailed Models of Aedes aegypti Population Dynamics
(John Wiley & Sons, 2016-10)
The success of control programs for mosquito-borne diseases can be enhanced by crucial information provided by models of the mosquito populations. Models, however, can differ in their structure, complexity, and biological ...
Comparison of Empirical and Kinetic Modeling of the Photocatalytic Oxidation of Cyanide
(De Gruyter, 2007-12)
An intrinsic kinetic model based on the reaction mechanism of the photocatalytic oxidation of cyanide with TiO2 has been developed and applied to the results of experiments carried out using different catalyst concentrations, ...
Comparison of friction models applied to a control valve
(PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTD, 2008)
Eight different models to represent the effect of friction in control valves are presented: four models based on physical principles and four empirical ones. The physical models, both static and dynamic, have the same ...
Linear and Poisson models for genetic evaluation of tick resistance in cross-bred Hereford x Nellore cattle
Cattle resistance to ticks is measured by the number of ticks infesting the animal. The model used for the genetic analysis of cattle resistance to ticks frequently requires logarithmic transformation of the observations. ...
EMPIRICAL MODEL COMPARISON AND MODEL TUNING FOR ESTIMATING a(CDOM) IN A TROPICAL RESERVOIR IN BRAZIL
The aim of this work was to fit an empirical model for estimating the Colored Dissolved Organic Matter (CDOM) absorption coefficient (a(CDOM)) at 412 nm [a(CDOM)(412)] and 443 nm [a(CDOM)(443)], in Itumbiara reservoir ...
