SSlbc: Self-Starting Nls Load Bearing Capacity Model

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

A selfStart model that evaluates the Load Bearing Capacity (Dias Jr., 1994) function and its gradient. It has an initial attribute that creates initial estimates of the parameters b0 and b1.

Usage

1
 SSlbc(theta, b0, b1) 

Arguments

theta

a numeric vector of soil moisture values at which to evaluate the model.

b0

a numeric parameter.

b1

a numeric parameter.

Value

a numeric vector with the same length of theta. It is the value of the expression 10^{(b0 + b1 * θ)}. Also, the gradient matrix with respect to the parameters is attached as an attribute named gradient.
