For example, research into the nighttime legibility of traffic signs was performed with 24 participants [12]; research into the use of diagrammatic signs was conducted with 13 participants [13]; and a study aiming at the effects of eco-driving training courses on driver behavior and comprehensibility was performed with 22 participants [14].
The experimental results could be explained by the formulae considered in this paper 16,17] and physical intuition for the quantum dynamics of an electron in solids could be provided using the present diagrammatic method.
Note that the EMF is a modelling framework with code generation facilities for defining structural data models, but the functionality for creating diagrammatic DSMLs is not in the scope of the EMF.
This notion of 'drawings that work' is the leitmotif in a recent study by John Bender and Michael Marrinan, The Culture of Diagram, an examination of the role of diagrammatic expressions in eighteenth century France.
By providing a before-after comparison, they do however serve to demonstrate what Wuthrich identifies as the decisive conceptual advance brought along by Feynman diagrams: The effective isolation of the problematic parts of the theory (the appearance of infinite results had been plaguing calculations in quantum electrodynamics for two decades), made possible by reducing all physical processes to a few elementary building blocks in the diagrammatic representation.
A 'diagrammatic outline' is used by Docker as a framework for identifying cases of genocide based on work by Raphael Lemkin, without casting a critical eye over Lemkin's taxonomy.

"Thus, each leaf is an aide-memoire and as such contains the minimum text on explanation and derivation; instead it relies on graphical and diagrammatic presentation."
Reading the book as a 'mature' Australian intensive care unit specialist, I was unimpressed by several aspects of the content and structure; one or two of the diagrams are a little too simplistic and diagrammatic, the content is cut short without in-depth discussion of the evidence on several important topics, the multiplicity of authors often leads to overlap of content and the order of chapters is illogical, with the anaesthesia section before the resuscitation section.
Students participated in group activities in which they teamed up to develop a specific ecoMachine prototype through the mapping of environmental processes and the application of dynamic process technique, via a process of diagrammatic abstraction, which leads to the formation of digital modeling and physical modeling through rapid prototyping techniques.
