We have applied the method derived by (Imshennik and Popov 1994) of determination the elliptical orbits evolution due to gravitational wave emission on PSR1913+16. Our results are highly comparable with the latest analysis of that system based on published timing observations from 1974 through 2006 (Weisberg, Nice and Taylor, 2010). The comparison is shown in the next table. We plan to extend the system data analysis up till 2016.
