Ultrasonic Reference Block Study

Non-Linear Fit with Non-Homogeneous Variances This example illustrates the construction of a non-linear regression model for ultrasonic calibration data. This case study demonstrates fitting a non-linear model and the use of transformations and weighted fits to deal with the violation of the assumption of constant standard deviations for the errors. This assumption is also called homogeneous variances for the errors.
