The result has implications for our understanding of the strength of the Alpine Fault and fault zones in general, as failure properties
of fault rocks are influenced by temperature and geothermal fluids.
for both materials and their contaminated derivatives were characterized by means of the Videotraction[C] tensile method.
The curing bladder compounds mixed in this study were tested for filler dispersion, shear viscosity, tensile properties, failure properties
(fatigue life and tear) and thermal conductivity.
That said, however, there are ductile failure properties
associated with the material, which would come into play should vehicle occupants collide with the parts during an accident.
The force and 'distance to break' are measured by their Texture Expert Exceed software and used as indicators of tensile strength and ultimate failure properties
Quasi-static elastic, plastic, and failure properties
of solid, molded materials were measured by uniaxial tensile testing of molded specimens using a servohydraulic test frame and wedge-action grips (MTS).
Fatigue to failure properties
were determined using a fatigue to failure tester at a constant energy deformation of 3.
He has made numerous contributions to understanding the mechanical and failure properties
of elastomers, particularly in the context of rubber engineering design, such as developing one of the standard hyper-elastic models widely used in commercial finite element analysis, known as the Yeoh Model.
Also, a crazing stress of 40 MPa was found to cause a much larger degree of degradation of failure properties
than a crazing stress of 45 MPa.
When coupled with failure properties
, the results of this type of testing can be used to predict the failure behavior of elastomeric bushing compounds.
Since the residual yield stress of crazed polycarbonate has already been quantitatively modeled and no correlation was found for the elastic modulus, the remainder of this paper attempts to model the failure properties
of crazed polycarbonate.
This also leads to an improvement of failure properties
such as tensile strength, tear strength and abrasion resistance.
