Definitions for "Scaling"
Keywords:  calculus, tartar, plaque, gumline, gum
Adapted for removing scales, as from a fish; as, a scaling knife; adapted for removing scale, as from the interior of a steam boiler; as, a scaling hammer, bar, etc.
Removal of plaque, calculus, and stains from teeth.
The art and function of making the ground safe using a scaling bar to locate and remove loose rock from the walls, face and backs of the workplace. Loose or potentially unstable rock is prised off the rock surface with a scaling bar. Also referred to as barring down.
Ability to enlarge or reduce a design. In expanded format, scaling should be limited 10 to 20 percent because of the fact that the stitch count will remain constant. In outline or condensed format, scale changes may be more dramatic as stitch count and density may be varied, but unlimited resizing is not practical and should be limited to 10 to 30 percent.
Changing the size of the reproduction without changing the dimensions.
This is reduction or enlargement of artwork which can be proportional or disproportional. In desktop publishing the term optimal scaling of bitmaps refers to the reduction or enlargement that will avoid or reduce moiré patterns.
separation and flaking off; initial surface disintegration as in concrete pavements
Salt deposits on the interior surfaces of a desalination plant.
The breaking away of a hardened concrete surface, usually to a depth off/IS' to 3/16'. Screed Firmly placed grade strips or side forms which are set as guides for a straight edge to bring the surface of concrete to the required elevation. To strike off concrete above the desired level.
Abnormal shedding or accumulation of an upper layer of skin (the stratum corneum ). See the entire definition of Scaling
Scaling or hyperkeratosis is an increase in the dead cells on the surface of the skin (stratum corneum).
Keywords:  quantify, log, lumber, volume, defecs
Determination of the gross and net volume of logs using the customary commercial volumetric units for the product involved. OR Logs are measured (or scaled) for the purpose of estimating the amount of lumber that can be obtained. Once logs have been processed into lumber it is again necessary to quantify volumes produced.
Logs are measured (or scaled) for the purpose of estimating the amount of lumber that can be obtained. Once logs have been processed into lumber it is again necessary to quantify volumes produced. The process of measuring lumber is called lumber scaling. The volume lumber yielded from a log may be greater than the estimated volume of lumber. Also see Yield.
Determining the volume of wood in a log, group of logs, or a tree.
Serving as an aid in clambering; as, a scaling ladder, used in assaulting a fortified place.
ascent by or as if by a ladder
Heavy surface oxidation on metals caused by heating in air or in other oxidizing atmospheres.
(1) The formation at high temperatures of thick corrosion product layers on a metal surface. (2) The deposition of water-insoluble constituents on a metal surface.
Oxidation of metal due to heat, resulting in heavy oxide layers. Also, the removal of scale bears the same name.
The reformatting of video or digital pictures to occupy a different number of scan lines or a different horizontal or vertical pixel count. Also referred to as "resampling". This is done to zoom an image on the screen without spreading out the existing scan lines, or to change the video from one format to another, for example HDTV to NTSC or NTSC to SECAM.
Another word for Zooming.
This is a term used to describe the formation of scale (or lime) on the inside of water heaters and associated pipework or fittings. It is a result of minerals such as calcium carbonate being deposited out of the water when the water is heated. The propensity of water to scale is defined by the saturation index.
A type of propagation that separates bulb scales from the mother bulb to induce the formation of bulblets.
Precipitation of chemicals dissolved in formation waters.
Fouling and clogging of heat exchangers due to deposition of inorganic and organic compounds; typical problem in evaporation of alkaline pulping liquors; reduces the operation efficiency and increases maintenance costs of pulp mills; in alkaline nonwood pulping dissolved silica is the main reason for scaling; hinders the chemical recovery of alkaline nonwood pulping; not a problem in the Chempolis process.
When you open your doors on the web, you're available to many more prospective customers. So it can be a problem if your systems can't cope with a 300% or more increase in traffic. This isn't just your web hosting service either: your back office systems may have to process more orders and then, of course, there is the question of delivering the goods. Scaling down is also an issue. If you have a sudden drop in search engine rankings as a result of a software change their end, you may find that you've fallen off the bottom of the results list. In this instance, you need to be able to scale back quickly and efficiently so that you don't find your costs running away with you while you stage a recovery. Back
A geometric transformation. Involves multiplying the coordinates by numeric factors.
Multiplying calculated results by an empirical fudge factor in the hope of getting a more accurate prediction. Very often done for vibrational frequencies computed at the HF/6-31G* level, for which the accepted scaling factor is 0.893 ( 17).
applying a factor and an offset to a signal
a mathematical set of relationships determining how to shrink an MOS transistor to improve performance while controlling electric fields preventing hot carrier effects.
A transformation of the number line or plane that takes each point the same fraction towards or away from the origin in a given direction (e.g., stretching or shrinking).
The process of making an image larger or smaller on the fly. Usually used for video playback.
is the process of converting resolution.
An operation performed by a digital signal processor to fill the screen with an image not being displayed in the native resolution of the display.
Giving numbers, in order, to information which was in words or ideas; for example, showing a person’s opinion by a number from this list: 1) strongly agree; 2) agree; 3) disagree; 4) strongly disagree. Scaling always uses numbers.
1. Format used for a fixed-point number of a given word length and signedness. The slope and bias together form the scaling of a fixed-point number. 2. Changing the slope and/or bias of a fixed-point number without changing the stored integer. See also bias, fixed-point representation, integer, slope
type of equivalence between modes in cancelling the dependence upon ordered degrees (there is not a hierarchic structure, a beginning or an end). It can also be defined as the group of modes of a scale. For example, two different scalings are the white and black keys in the piano. In the equal tempered gamma there is a total of 351 possible scalings. There is an isomorphisme between scalings and chord-mode classes.
A means of defining a system for transforming raw scores to reported (scaled) scores for a test or testing program.
Converting raw data into types of scores more readily interpreted, such as ranks, centiles, standard scores.
Keywords:  opto, pac, volts, liters, easy
Setting an analog input or output point to show values in a form more significant to you than the signal of the point. For example, you could scale an analog input to read from 0% to 100% or 0 liters to 10,000 liters, rather than from -10 to +10 volts. Most Opto 22 brains let you scale analog values. Also, scaling is easy to do in PAC Control software when you program control applications.
(1) In test construction, the process of setting rules for assigning numbers in measurement; (2) the process by which a measuring device is designed and calibrated and the way numbers (or other indices that are scale values) are assigned to different amounts of the trait, attribute, or characteristic measured; (3) assigning numbers in accordance with empirical properties of objects or traits, 16, 193-198
A procedure for assigning numbers to a subject's responses. See also categorical scale, interval scale, nominal scale, ordinal scale, ratio scale.
