forward estimation

forward estimation

A formulaic estimation of a person’s likely blood alcohol concentration after consuming a known amount of alcohol, which may be of interest in a medicolegal context (e.g., drink driving-related accident/injury).

Sources of error
Exact amount of alcohol consumed, amount absorbed, individual Widmark factor.

Forward estimation formula
CT = CO - (beta x T)

CT = Time of interest
CO = Known time
Beta = Rate of elimination mg alcohol/100 ml blood/hour
T = Time since drinking began

Because the STS model is designed for forward estimation of 25 seconds, the worst-case propagation method is also calculated with forward estimation of 25 seconds.
The STS and WCP errors are similar to the manned aircraft flight log test in Figure 8, and there is 10.5% increase in accuracy at forward estimation of 25 seconds.
But ratios can used in these sectors to put forward estimations. In this way, it is evaluated that approximately 6,840 people are working full-time in the biofuels sector (including both agricultural jobs as well as those linked to the process of transforming crops into biofuel) in the case of France.
