## What is/are Wedge Model?

Wedge Model - ABSTRACT The strain wedge model effectively performs nonlinear analyses of the lateral response of piles by using a nonlinear stress-strain relationship to describe soil behavior in the strain wedge.^{[1]}A double wedge model has been proposed to compute seismic sliding displacements of cantilever retaining walls.

^{[2]}The back-scattering characteristics of breaking waves compared with those of the wedge model are also investigated to justify the validity of wedge model approximation.

^{[3]}To simulate large nanostructured WGM resonators, we developed a new approach known as FloWBEM, which is an efficient and compact 3D wedge model with custom boundary conditions that accurately simulate the resonant Fano interference between the traveling WGM waves and a nanorod array.

^{[4]}Mutations of this residue to M or K led to similar effects, in accordance with the so-called wedge model for explanation of the sweet protein-receptor interaction.

^{[5]}Besides, the wedge model trial and practical applications suggest that the proposed inversion algorithm is stable, in addition to having good noise robustness and lateral continuity; moreover, the vertical resolution of λ/8 is realized under the noise and outliers interference.

^{[6]}A geometric wedge model of the near-earth nightside plasma sheet is used to derive a wave equation for low frequency shear flow-interchange waves which transmit $\vec{E} \times \vec{B}$ sheared zonal flows along magnetic flux tubes towards the ionosphere.

^{[7]}The contribution of each excited wave to the transmission coefficient is evaluated, the distribution of the transmission coefficient is analysed and application to an engineering wedge model is performed.

^{[8]}Thrust faulting has been studied within the framework of a tectonic wedge model.

^{[9]}We combined kinematic restitutions with the classic critically-tapered Coulomb wedge model, following the assumption that at times when thrusting is triggered, the surface slope was less than the angle required to reach self-similar growth, i.

^{[10]}Four different slot-opening models were selected—the basic model, hairpin coil model, magnetic-wedge model, and QSC-slot model—and 2-D finite-element analysis was performed under open-circuit and load operations for each of the four models.

^{[11]}Moreover, the shadowing effect has been modelled using an approach similar to that described in the Strain Wedge Model.

^{[12]}However, the relation between calculative sand thickness and seismic attribute is normally derived from a wedge model, which does not take into account the interferences of different sand bodies.

^{[13]}In order to describe this physical process macroscopically, a continuum wedge model based on the Coulomb model is established to predict drag and lift forces.

^{[14]}As such, a modified soil passive wedge model for near-slope laterally loaded piles is presented to consider the weakening effect in this paper.

^{[15]}The facies distribution is consistent with the infralittoral prograding wedge model.

^{[16]}The parameter of wedge model is more affected.

^{[17]}Our workflow begins with building a relationship between the parameter set of the GST and IF using a synthetic wedge model.

^{[18]}In the sequence, the chapter analyses the green wedge models derived from the initial idea, namely the belt–wedge, the polycentric city and the corridor–wedge.

^{[19]}The experiments were performed in the X2 expansion tube by using a stainless steel wedge model designed with a provision to mount a graphite ablation source on its compression face.

^{[20]}Meanwhile, several types of silo-wedge models were established according to different assumptions proposed by previous studies and this paper.

^{[21]}This paper proposes a modified strain wedge model for the analysis of laterally loaded piles in sloping ground.

^{[22]}By using the method of theoretical analysis, we optimized the prism in the traditional wedge model to chamfer platform with different opening angles to make it closer to the actual situation, and calculated the critical support pressure of shield tunnel face when it passes through the built tunnel.
