warp:

see weavingweaving,
the art of forming a fabric by interlacing at right angles two or more sets of yarn or other material. It is one of the most ancient fundamental arts, as indicated by archaeological evidence.

Warp

Distortion in the shape of a plane timber surface, due to the movement of moisture; may be caused by improper seasoning.

Warp

 

in weaving, the parallel threads running lengthwise in a fabric. A fabric is formed on a loom by sucessively interweaving two perpendicular systems of threads, the warp and the weft. During weaving, the warp threads are stretched and bent much more than the weft threads. They also are abraded more by the loom. Therefore, the yarn for the warp must be stronger, have more twist, and be made from higher quality fibers than the weft. It is often treated with a glue solution, or sizing, before weaving.

warp

[wȯrp]
(geology)
An upward or downward flexure of the earth's crust.
A layer of sediment deposited by water.
(navigation)
To move a vessel or other waterborne object from one point to another by pulling on lines fastened to a fixed buoy, wharf, or such.
(textiles)
Yarn extending lengthwise, under tension on a loom. Also known as end.

1. See carpet warp.
2. Distortion in shape of a parallel plane surface; in lumber, usually results from a change in moisture content.

To study the accuracy of simulation results, warpage was defined as the maximum deviation minus the minimum deviation.
The simulations were unable to replicate the large warpage that was actually observed in the gate area of geometries three and four.
The simulations predicted the warpage along the back wall of Part 3 to within 0.
rel] of x-direction shrinkage, y-direction shrinkage and z-direction warpage is 9.
6) is obtained by considering one parameter at a time (x-shrinkage, y-shrinkage, and warpage separately) and does not optimize for an objective function taking into account the effect of all three parameters.
Comparing the results in Tables 6 and 7, we find that the shrinkage and warpage determined by the BPANN under the optimal process conditions are smaller than those by Taguchi's method.
This study uses a BPANN to successfully predict the shrinkage and warpage of thin-wall injected products and investigates the effect of structure parameters on network training quality.
Product warpage caused by inappropriate mold design and/or processing conditions is a recurrent problem during the injection molding of thermoplastic materials.
These proposed changes will increase the sophistication of the current models to provide an improved understanding of the influence of material characteristics as well as part geometry on the formation of thermally induced stress and warpage in plastic products.
Hence, the aim of this study is to investigate the effects of injection-molding parameters during the post-filling stage (packing pressure, packing time, mold temperature, and cooling time) and to determine the optimal selection of parameters for three different types of lignocellulosic polymer composite materials with respect to in-cavity residual stresses, volumetric shrinkage, and warpage properties.
Measurement of In-Cavity Residual Stresses, Volumetric Shrinkage, and Warpage
Similarly, the volumetric shrinkage and warpage were measured at the center of the surface.
