Definitions for "Calibration"
The process of estimating the caliber a tube, as of a thermometer tube, in order to graduate it to a scale of degrees; also, more generally, the determination of the true value of the spaces in any graduated instrument.
Determination of the experimental relationship between the quantity being measured and the output of the device that measures it; where the quantity measured is obtained through a recognized standard of measurement.
a set of operations that establish, under specified conditions, the relationship between the values of quantities indicated by a measuring instrument or measuring system … and the corresponding values realised by standards. See difference between calibration and adjustment.
Becoming tuned-in to another's state and internal sensory processing operations by reading previously observed noticed nonverbal signals.
The process of learning to read another person's unconscious, nonverbal responses in an ongoing interaction by pairing observable behavioral cues with a specific internal response.
PCA or Program Calibration Area. Space at the beginning of the CD for calibrating the laser to read or write to the CD.
The process by which values of the normalizing (or free) parameters are determined so as to replicate the observed flow values incorporated in the social accounting matrix (SAM), assuming all the equations describing the equilibrium in the system (model) are met in the benchmark period. This process is augmented by literature search (and on occasion econometric estimation) for key model parameters, whose values are required before the calibration can proceed. In practice, due to the wide spread use of CES functions in applied models, "key" parameters are more or less synonymous with elasticities (Mansur and Whalley).
The process of developing the model parameters using observed transportation data.
(model application): Process of refining the model representation of the hydrogeologic framework, hydraulic properties, and boundary conditions to achieve a desirable degree of correspondence between the model simulation and observations of the ground-water system.
Hypersensitivity Resorption
Keywords:  cama, sprayer, tablet, cursor, droplet
adjusting the configuration and operation of a sprayer so that the desired volume of spray is applied per acre and the droplet size and spray pattern provides for the best spray coverage.
Fixing fuel delivery and speed adjustments to specified engine requirements. The setting of the delivery of an injection system.
Setting up or otherwise getting ready a piece of electronic equipment; primarily used in regard to calibrating or properly adjusting video displays and audio equalizers.
Keywords:  refractory, intravenous
Intravenous Refractory
Scientific hallucination
The setting tolerance is the maximum allowable deviation from the nominal frequency at 25°C. It is normally specified in parts per million (ppm).
A set of frequency (Hz) and K-factor (dB) pairs that define the gain characteristics of the antenna. Linear interpolation is used to obtain K-factor values for intermediate frequencies
A system component that captures heat, smoke and particulate and conducts them into the exhaust ductwork hood.
Keywords:  misused, validation, synonym
(often misused as a synonym for validation)
Keywords:  sphincter, inflammation
Inflammation Sphincter
Keywords:  gage, emotionally, ask, him, assessing
Assessing where the client is emotionally. For example: We will ask the client what the feeling is about a particular memory and ask him/her to gage it on a level between –10 and +10. We feel it's important to always leave the client on a +10 level.
The act or process of calibrating or the state of being calibrated.
The process of quantitatively defining the system responses to known, controlled signal inputs.
The process of lining up tape recorders or any equipment in terms of frequency response and level.
any exposure other than actual science exposures taken to determine the characteristics of the instant.
(CALIB) Setting-up a machine to a known reference condition
The act of relating X and Y pixel spacing to a known or predetermined pixels per unit length (i.e. inch, mm) factor.
Conversion from sensor digital counts to physical units
