Values of other OC tangents no effect on the inspected result in the case of OK method 1, but can significantly affect the use of other techniques.
i[not equal to]j(k)] indicate that any increase in the value of the tangent at any OC would reduce the calculated values on other OC tangents.
When using 3 methods calculated tangents differ from the actual not only in <<healthy>>, but also in <<damaged>> OC--not at the moment of change, but starting from the next measurement.

Up to now the proof of the method for constructing tangents using a straightedge only was based on special tools and properties from Projective and Synthetic geometry [2], [3, p.
In the following we shall also present the construction problems that implement the method of construction of tangents to a circle using a straightedge only.
The number of operating speed prediction models on tangents set out in the literature generally is lower than on circular elements because driver speed behavior is more complex to analyze.
They subsequently calibrated predictive speed models on tangents and curves which are not restricted to a specific percentile, but for all percentile speeds from the 5th to the 95th in increments of five.
