The soil expansivity, which was "moderate" for the clayey soil, was also improved to "negligible" with 20% proportion of the marble powder when clayey soil was tested for free swelling ratio.
If density is independent of pressure, and therefore volume expansivity is also independent of pressure (that is, the fluid is "incompressible"), Equation (9) simplifies to
The relationship of Lyapunov exponents to expansivity and sensitivity were studied in Finelli et al.
Such allegories of reading, while pre-empting Paul de Man's catchy by-words and virtually conceding, along with the Barthesian anatomy of pleasure (Le Plaisir du texte [Paris: Seuil, 1973]), that "erotic literature" is, by definition, tautological, still grope beyond the "erogenous" expansivity of self to posit the "first-person," not merely as dual subject and object of text, but, too, as verbal agent, the actant which effectuates any dynamic, which propels any passage from nominative to object-ive, any gravitation towards complement or predicate.
This means that thermal expansivity will drive the phase separation process.

This is a healthy development in the ride-hailing sector, as such expansivity provides opportunities for women to earn a livelihood and increases female participation in the economy.
So different degrees of thermal expansivity are generated in different components of the machine tool, and the original relative positions between the components are altered.
That is because of the residual stress of heterogeneous polymers which produced by the differences of the physics properties (thermal expansivity, mechanics), internal structure and inter-solvating performance.
PVT experiments can provide key aspects of a polymer's physical properties by relaying the concepts of compressibility, expansivity and free volume (46).
Because the physical constraint of the material by the mold will convert thermal contraction strain into thermal stress, both the Young's Modulus and the expansivity of the material are important to characterize.
The anisotropic expansivity of the blends shows a strong dependence on PLC concentration and orientation direction.
