English term or phrase: influence quantity
Definition from
Quantity that is not the measurand but that affects the result of the measurement. EXAMPLES: a) temperature of a micrometer used to measure length; b) frequency in the measurement of the amplitude of an alternating electric potential difference.

Example sentence(s):
  • The effect of an influence quantity on the measurement process is an interference that generates a systematic error. In clinical chemistry, depending on the molecular entity responsible for an interference, influence quantities may be classified as endogenous or exogenous. Clinical Chemistry
  • This means that there has to be a specified relationship between the influence quantities and the measurand. This relationship is known as the mathematical model. This is an equation that describes how each influence quantity affects the value assigned to the measurand.
  • By using the measurement model built to approximately compute the sensitivity coefficient that reflects the uncertainty propagating law of each influence quantity, it is possible to evaluate the result of indirect measurement and its uncertainties. CAT.INIST

Example sentence(s):
  • 讨论了桥梁、工业厂房和大型公共建筑中较多采用的单层多跨刚架在移动荷载作用下影响量的计算方法。以工程中计算连续梁的一次力矩分配法的概念和思路为基础,建立了结构中杆端真实抗转刚度和结点转角传递的概念及其相应计算公式,提出了一种单层多跨刚架超静定结构影响量的精确计算方法。算例表明,该方法较之传统的计算方法简捷,且既便于手算,也利于编制通用程序用于电算。 - 维普资讯
