An admissible curve of a pseudo-Galilean space is said to be of constant-ratio if the ratio of the length of the tangent and normal components of its position vector function is a constant. In this paper, we investigate and characterize a spacelike admissible curve of constant-ratio in terms of its curvature functions in the pseudo-Galilean space G13. Also, we study some special curves of constantratio such as T-constant and N-constant types of these curves. Finally, we give some computational examples for constructing the meant curves to demonstrate our theoretical results.
