elastic deformation

[i′las·tik ‚dē·fər′mā·shən]
(mechanics)
Reversible alteration of the form or dimensions of a solid body under stress or strain.

Elastic deformation

The deformation that occurs instantly when a load is applied and is instantly and fully recovered when the load is removed.

Elastic Deformation

 

a deformation that disappears when the load is removed. Such deformation requires that the elastic limit not be exceeded. If the limit is exceeded, the deformation is permanent.

elastic deformation

A change in shape without impairment of the elastic properties of a material.

2007) calculated the wedge angle between the friction surfaces using an FEM analysis of the elastic deformation of the cylindrical thrust plate.
Abstract The paper refers to electronic laboratory equipment meant to material hardness testing as well as to other important material characteristics such as: modulus, work of elastic deformation, work of plastic deformation, creep tendency.
Another cause for the larger elastic deformation of the pulley-cable finger is the high cable force that exerts an external force to the finger frame, causing small elastic deformations of the frame.
Subsequently, finite element method (FEM) analysis of the fixed thrust plate was undertaken to determine its elastic deformation as input into the calculation of the wedge angle characteristics as a function of the applied pressure difference.
The pores result in local free-standing regions, which tend to yield more easily under stress and decrease the resistance of the overall structure to elastic deformation.
E--represents the elastic deformation in which the energy is stored as potential energy and used for returning to initial shape
This distinguishes a transition from yielding, combined with crazing, to crazing combined with voiding and then to an elastic deformation mode in which only voiding takes place (stages II - III - IV in Fig.
it is elastic deformation domain, where Poisson coefficient is 0.
Rubin specified an evolution equation for the elastic deformation, including the relaxation effect of plastic deformation, without introducing a plastic deformation tensor explicitly.
We note with Up the energy of elastic deformation at the bending and with [U.
Three types of deformation are accounted for in the proposed model: elastic deformation of the EPDM, elastic and plastic deformation of the iPP struts, and localized elastic and plastic rotation at the strut junction points through the formation of plastic hinges.
