Arterialization

Definitions

  • Webster's Revised Unabridged Dictionary
    • n Arterialization (Physiol) The process of converting venous blood into arterial blood during its passage through the lungs, oxygen being absorbed and carbonic acid evolved; -- called also aëration and hematosis.

    • n arterialization The process of making arterial; the conversion of venous into arterial blood, during its passage through the lungs, by the elimination of carbon dioxid and the absorption of oxygen from the air. Also spelled arterialisation.

For no vague end have had their birth.

The large map further contains all minor and ma jor arterials for Dallas and all ma jor arterials for Forth Worth.
Experiences with a simplified microsimulation for the Dallas/Fort Worth area
For the time being, a more detailed evaluation is not reasonable, since the underlying network was not homogeneous: outside Dallas only ma jor arterials were used to hold the traffic which is usually spread over the topmost two or three street hierarchies.
Experiences with a simplified microsimulation for the Dallas/Fort Worth area
We experienced extreme clogging of those arterials. A good estimate for the computational speed of the overall detailed network can be obtained if the overall length (in lane kilometers ) of the network is known.
Experiences with a simplified microsimulation for the Dallas/Fort Worth area
Usually the factor between a high-fidelity and a arterial network is about 3 to 5 which would still result in a RTR of about 0.2-0.3 for this type of architecture.
