When the tidal forces are superimposed on the global contraction, the combined stresses should cause predictable orientations of the fault scarps from region to region.
The criterion of failure for combined stresses as expressed in equation (2) that satisfies the requirement of stress invariants may be expressed in terms of compressive strength as:
the combined stresses or from dents), resulting in cracks at other orientations.
The subject of the public contract is the delivery of one (1) piece of the universal testing machine for cyclic loading and fatigue, which is a servo-hydraulic machine for mechanical tensile, torsion and combined stresses including software and hardware equipment (the "Equipment").
When a mixer is operating, the shaft is experiencing both bending and torsional stresses, therefore the maximum combined stresses in the shaft were found by the following equation:
In the long term, combined stresses associated with climate change are expected to decrease agricultural productivity in the Midwest.
But, like our immune systems in the case of chronic infections, coral reefs' combined stresses create inhospitable places for fish and other reef inhabitants; damaged reefs are ineffective barriers to waves, which can wipe out whole villages.
The combined stresses of the deep recession, credit quality challenges, and share insurance assessments have triggered more mergers due to financial problems but fewer strategic combinations.
Only 38% of grassland species mirrored the trend, reflecting the constraints of their severely-depleted habitat and suggesting that they now face a double threat from the combined stresses of habitat loss and climate adaptation.
Originally published in 1988 by Springer-Verlag, this reprinted engineering text was written for structural engineers, already familiar with the processes of elastic and plastic analysis and design of framed structures and reinforced concrete, but wishing to understand more about the elastic and plastic behavior of structural elements under combined stresses.
IT'S beginning to look a lot like Christmas and apart from tinsel, turkey and a huge credit card bill that also means the annual office Christmas party But if you're the one trying to organise the get-together, the combined stresses of trying to please everyone without spending a fortune can take the edge off your festive cheer.
