model (oneself or something) on (someone or something else)

To use something or someone as the basis, inspiration, or example for how something or oneself should be. They're modeling the experimental plan on similar systems already being used to great effect in Norway and Sweden. I've always tried to model myself on Albert Einstein in how I organize my life and work.

model (something) on (something else)

To use something as the template or model for the way in which something else is created or developed. The mayor's ambitious social security plan is modeled after a similar system already in place in Sweden. You can model your lesson plans after ones from previous teachers.

model (something) after (something else)

To use something as the template or model for the way in which something else is created or developed. The mayor's ambitious social security plan is modeled after a similar system already in place in Sweden. You can model your lesson plans after ones from previous teachers.

model (someone or something) in (something)

To create a model figure of some person or thing in a given substance or medium. The artist models various characters from literature, film, and pop culture in scrap metal he collects from the junkyard at the edge of town. We'll model you with clay, and then use that model to create the statue.

In the modeling, the downward velocity of the upper piece started with a constant speed of 3.28 ft./second (1 m/second), then linearly decreased to zero at the end of the process.
The third question was, "How can models best represent the process by which an infectious agent may be transmitted?" The classic method of modeling considers a population to be divided into distinct subpopulations: susceptible, infected, infectious, and removed (i.e., dead or recovered and immune).
We have also neglected the effects of paint application in our modeling. Nevertheless, the rapid developments in computer graphics--where the turn around time between theoretical formulation and practical application is so short--make significant progress on these problems in the near future an exciting and likely possibility.
Changes that RMS made to its models included reflecting climate variability in the modeling of event frequency, increasing the differentiation between individual risks, and driving toward models that are as comprehensive as possible, VanderMarck said.
"Agent-based modeling has only come into its own with the arrival of really powerful computers sitting on people's desktops, within the last 10 or 15 years," he notes.
The emphasis of each test is on modeling and applications with only 30% of each test devoted to skill problems.

(Modeling agencies take a 20% commission.) A good client will book a model at least four hours weekly.
As new TB vaccines and other control strategies become available, their potential benefits to TB control efforts can be evaluated by mathematical modeling. Mathematical models can be used as health policy tools to evaluate strategies for controlling TB (30-35); mathematical models also provide insights for predicting the potential public health impact of imperfect HIV vaccines (36 39).
There is general agreement that traditional 2.5D midplane modeling is best suited for thin-shell parts that require fairly short analysis times.
Working with dynamic system modeling tools such as MATLAB / Simulink and MATRIXx / SystemBuild, the product allows real-time simulations of dynamic systems to be quickly created and used throughout the design cycle--from initial concepts to controller design, test and validation using hardware-in- the-loop.
This suggests the importance of modeling networks of sufficiently large size when studying the effects of collective dynamics.
