English: Top: Estimated gravitational-wave strain amplitude from GW150914 projected onto H1. This shows the full bandwidth of the waveforms, without the filtering used for Fig. 1. The inset images show numerical relativity models of the black hole horizons as the black holes coalesce. Bottom: The Keplerian effective black hole separation in units of Schwarzschild radii ( RS=2GM/c2) and the effective relative velocity given by the post-Newtonian parameter v/c=(GMπf/c3)1/3, where f is the gravitational-wave frequency calculated with numerical relativity and M is the total mass (value from Table I).
