simple shear

[′sim·pəl ′shir]
(geophysics)
Strain caused by differential movements on one set of parallel planes which results in internal rotation of fabric elements.
(mathematics)
A transformation that corresponds to a shearing motion in which a coordinate axis in the plane or a coordinate plane in space does not move, having the form x ′ = x, y ′ = ax + y, z ′ = z, where a is a constant, for a suitable choice of axes.

Pressure overcomes simple shear, making for a combined flow of drag and pressure flow, which then inhibits what simple shear might accomplish for mixing.
In the first part of this work on PP/PA6-carbon nanotube (CNT) blends [24], it was evidenced by several methods that the selective localization of CNTs in the PA6 dispersed phase changed the deformability of droplets under simple shear flows.
The transient deformation of a liquid-filled elastic capsule in simple shear flow was studied by Sui et al.
Finally, the uniaxial stretch and the simple shear are analyzed by using these generalized models; the stiffening or softening behaviors of such materials are discussed.
Estimation of the dynamic properties (shear modulus, G, and damping ratio, D, of soils has become the scope of many studies in the field of geotechnical earthquake engineering using devices such as resonant column, cyclic simple shear, cyclic torsional shear and cyclic triaxial (e.
