MODEL CHECKING real value To check the adequacy of the mathematical model which describes the relationship between FD and the yield of each paddy spikes, 20 spikes of same species were collected as a checking specimen. 8. 01 . It is also shown in the plot of error distribution that 80% of errors in the specimen are limited in 20%. 57%, and 93% of errors in the specimen are limited in 20%. 01 6. CONCLUSION From the investigation on fractal properties of paddy spikes and the analyses of the relationship between the yields of paddy spikes and their fractal dimensions, the following conclusions can be drawn.

Finite Element Model of brushless DC motor. The most valid method to study the motor’s Transient Behavior is timestepping finite element method, which has high degree of accuracy for it can involve every factor of the motor, such as: slot effect, skewed slot effect, saturation effect, vortex, skin effect and so on. Then definiting the characteristic of each subdivision part of the mode and subdividing the grid are done. When frequency changes, system can change the part automatically and realize adaptive subdivision.
