Figure 6 is a combined plot of the extensional data for pure HDPE, and 1, 5, and 10% dPE in HDPE blends compounded at 150 rpm for 30 min.
La primera es causal, la segunda, normativa; la primera es no conceptual, la segunda, si; la primera es extensional, la segunda, intensional.
The term "intensional" means that they violate the principle of extensionality, the principle that extensional equivalence implies identity.
By mixing in the extensional mode the higher (3X) viscosity greatly increases the dispersive effect, breaking down the lesser component with three times the shear stress.
(i) (A, =, [not equal to], x) is a semigroup, where the semigroup operation "x" is strongly extensional in the following way
However, there is another type of viscosity called extensional or elongational viscosity.
From 3D seismic-structural interpretations and well data integration, a set of inverted structures were identified, which allowed to establish the relationships between extensional and compressional deformation in the central-south regiOn ("B" and "VIII" blocks) of the Maracaibo Basin, starting with the recognition of a group of inverted structures.
According Lay, as the leading edge of the oceanic plate sinks into the mantle, it pulls on the rest of the plate, bending it downward and causing it to break along the extensional fault.
As polymers are viscoelastic materials, extensional viscosity (also known as elongational viscosity) as well as shear viscosity should be measured for a more complete understanding of a polymer's properties.
They characterized the extensional rheology of dough prepared using a lubricated squeezing flow technique and a texture analyzer under constant strain rates.
Previous studies (1-4) from our group have examined fluid properties (surface tension, high and low shear viscosities, storage moduli (G') and dynamic uniaxial extensional viscosities (DUEVs) of water-soluble polymer blends and fully formulated waterborne coatings.
In each of these figures, the first region of the signal is the initial portion of the symmetrical extensional mode followed by a higher amplitude anti-symmetrical flexural mode.
