In this work, the fracture toughness
of rotationally molded PE and PP was measured for the first time.
Resilience, mental toughness
, "grit" is a quality worth striving *for and celebrating, even as we at times fall short.
by sportsmen and coaches, to achieve excellent performanceis considered to be one of the important psychological features (Bull, et al.
Fortunately good science has now unpacked the ingredients of mental toughness
and we know it is a learned skill, not a matter of being lucky when the genes get handed out at birth.
The Sport Mental Toughness
Questionnaire (SMTQ) was used to measure mental toughness
In view of the above considerations, the present study a) verified whether mental toughness
discriminates winner and loser in a kickboxing competition and b) examined the relationship between mental toughness
and muscular power performance.
In once-tempered specimen, the lower hardness decreased the wear resistance, whereas the improved toughness
decreased the worn piece size (Table 2, Figures 7(b) and 7(e)); consequently, the weight loss was decreased, and the wear resistance was improved (Figure 6).
is commonly viewed as a combination of innate characteristics and a set of context-specific cognitive skills that can be developed (Gucciardi & Gordon, 2011; Gucciardi, Gordon, Dimmock, & Mallett, 2009; Jones et al.
One of the objectives of the STTR programme was the development of an inexpensive, ultra-strength steel with high fracture toughness
that could be used in Navy aircraft applications.
measurements were carried out on four rocks types:
Overall specimen size and normalized specimen thickness requirements of CS test for practically evaluating the fracture toughness
of bone are addressed [11-13].
Though general research already carried out on participants in a variety of sports types facilitates the administration of many tests, researchers have recently conducted more specialized studies so as to discover more specific components of mental toughness
or other psychological aspects (4, 12, 14 & 20).
