shear strain

[′shir ‚strān]
(mechanics)
Also known as shear.
A deformation of a solid body in which a plane in the body is displaced parallel to itself relative to parallel planes in the body; quantitatively, it is the displacement of any plane relative to a second plane, divided by the perpendicular distance between planes.
The force causing such deformation.

shear strain, shearing strain

A deformation in a structural member (measured in radians) resulting from the application of a force in a plane (or line) of a cross section of the member, perpendicular to the length of the beam.

Thus the analysis results show that the MHS not only reduces the weight and also the value of Equivalent (Von-Mises) Shear Stress, Equivalent (Von- Mises) Shear Strain and Total Deformation are lower than the solid shaft at different rpm level.
The damage parameter includes the sum of elastic shear strain energy ([[tau].
Other well-known techniques are the assumed natural shear strain method [5,6], the discrete Kirchhoff approaches [7-9], and the mixed interpolation of tensorial component approach [10].

Considering the influence of shear strain due to deflection, we can express [[phi].
As for the coating and drying processes, the initial internal structure of the particle dispersion film in the drying process is largely determined by the shear rate and/or shear strain in the coating process.
The maximum shear strain rate before step was observed to appear near the wall across the x-axis as depicted in Fig.
The total strain is composed primarily of the tangential strain in the plane of the tire and the shear strain between the radial and tangential directions.
They review the current status of their use in analyzing polymers and composites, covering electron paramagnetic resonance, the spin probes and labels method, studying interface layers in filled polymers by paramagnetic sensors, studying the adsorption of macromolecules on magnetic nanoparticles, studying dispersions of ferromagnetic nanoparticles, arylindandions as specific sensors of shear strain in polymers, and qualitative and quantitative analysis of polymer composites by electron paramagnetic resonance.
