Therefore, it can be inferred that the smaller the particle size of granular gouge is, the shorter the elapsed time for compaction and equidistribution is.
It was widely believed that particles self-organize to form force chains, which carry the shear traction across a gouge layer, and stress transmission in a granular layer is accomplished through the formation and destruction of force chains, which consist of an anastomosing network of contacting particles that extend between the layer boundaries [20, 36-38].
Based on the comprehensive consideration of particle sizes, shear velocities, and maximum shear stresses of Samples 1-4, it can be extrapolated that the smaller the particle size of granular gouge is, the larger the friction coefficient is (the bigger the actual contact area between both gouge layers is), and therefore the higher the simulated fault strength is.
Therefore, it can be inferred that the smaller the particle size of granular gouge is, the higher the released total energy generated by the stick-slip is, and the larger the stick-slip event count is.
In summary, the systematic differences due to particle size and shear velocity of gouge layers were observed, and the following three points can be concluded:
Although the first two chapters contextualize these women among other female revolutionaries and frame their ideas within eighteenth-century scientific and medical discourses of femininity and deviance, the focus of Beckstrand's book is on the textual strategies that de Gouges and Roland used to challenge gender norms.
Beckstrand offers a fresh and sophisticated interpretation of the works of de Gouges and Roland.
Finally, Beckstrand's last chapter title promises to explore de Gouges' and Roland's "legacies for the twenty-first century," yet the bulk of the chapter recounts each woman's trial and execution; only two brief paragraphs are allotted to feminism in the twenty-first century.
Mousset's biography of Olympe de Gouges could be assigned in its entirety, whereas Moore's and Beckstrand's work would be more effective as excerpts or integrated into lecture material.
The fittings allow repair without removing the damaged or defective section, whether it is a suspect butt fusion joint or a pipe gouge greater than 10% of the wall thickness.
The single sleeve is approximately 16 inches long and can repair a gouge length of up to 10 inches long.
#5 gouge. These first three gouges are used a lot for the general shaping of projects, especially in larger sizes.
#8 gouge. As you get deeper with the gouges, they gain in their versatility.
Many instructors use these as it saves a lot of precious class time by not having to remove all the waste wood with a knife or gouge. One drawback is the cost.
#3 gouge, starts the series of tools that have a slight curve to the cutting edge.
