Based on the preliminary study, we define the mechanical phenomenon as "rock creep disturbance effect"; that is, the rock can produce the corresponding creep strain increment after the external impact load is applied.
To study the dynamic characteristics of a rock in the rheological state, a new type of equipment known as a testing system for rock creep perturbation effect (RRTS) was developed.
A lot of love and care has been put into making these little creeps a joy to play with, and there are many more to come," the developer continues.
Spooktacular Creeps is developed by Ben Walker, an independent developer who's goal is to make games players enjoy and want to keep playing for a long time to come.
Mushy, Gritty: A trigger pull with inconsistent, unpredictable creep and steps.
14 were extracted from the short-term creeps (Table 2); the remaining inputs were identical with those used in the superposition procedure.
This project team has surveyed the electronics manufacturing industry to identify leading factors in creep corrosion and is working to understand the sensitivities of those factors.
has been used successfully to describe tensile creep in amorphous plastics arising from the glass-to-rubber relaxation process (1), (2).
creep. While shrinkage generates tensile stress, creep will relieve it and may prevent cracking.
The blended strings have very little creep and they resist "fuzzing" far better than pure Vectran, but they are less durable and a little slower than pure Dyneema.
Tested samples were prepared according to the standard ASTM A370 test method, and round bars were made (d = 6 mm) for tensile and creep tests.
Creep testing is useful in evaluating materials used in jet engines, gas turbines and other high temperature applications under load to prevent failure.
Numerous mathematical expressions and models have been proposed to describe creep behavior of polymers.
Creep experiments were performed on a TA Instruments DMA 983 interfaced to a TA 2000 Thermal Analyst System.
A number of empirical functions are currently being developed to accommodate the influence of physical aging on the creep rate of plastics (1, 2), where physical aging involves slow structural changes in both amorphous and semicrystalline polymers as a result of the material being quenched from the melt to form a solid that is not in structural equilibrium.
