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.

Then the elastic deformation throughout the journal surface under that load condition will be calculated and plugged into Eq.
Such magnitudes of clamping forces obviously correspond to predominantly elastic deformations - except in a very narrow pressure zone caused by the tip of the clamping element - which was confirmed by FEM analysis (Fig.
The orbiting thrust plate, made of aluminum alloy, undergoes an elastic deformation because of the axial loading along the axis of rotation.
e]) that corresponds to elastic deformations and modulus of deformability (Ed) corresponding to total deformations (elastic and plastic) were calculated using the following formulae:
The Deformable Objects have two basic forms of reaction before the presence of external forces: By means of elastic deformations, when the object is able to recover its original form, these forces are called internal forces and its magnitude is proportional to the level of deformation of the object, these forces will stop when the internal forces compensate the external ones giving a null total result.
The footplate deflection corresponding the displacement of crosshead of the machine and the resistance force arising due to elastic deformation of the footplate were measured synchronically by internal measurement system of the machine (1000 N capacity force sensor THE-1000N was used).
Assuming that the contact points at ball-screw/nut interface do not change during deformation of screw/nut and ball, the elastic deformations of the screw and nut at their contact points with the ball should equal the elastic deformation of the ball; i.
Various combinations of the elastic deformation elements, as well as combination of viscous deformation with the elements of damping or plasticity permit us to visualise the mechanical interpretation of the chip making process.
This can be attributed to the decreased elastic recovery because plastic deformation becomes the dominant deformation instead of elastic deformation.
Core-shell latexes with built-in coalescents are reducing the need for coalescing solvents, but many formulations still require them to provide the flow and elastic deformation that is necessary for smooth, continuous films.
It begins with an introduction to basic solid mechanisms, including discussion of what holds a solid together, stress and strain, elastic deformation, plastic deformation, and strength resilience.
14) It should be noted in passing, though, that this effect is particularly noticeable at purely elastic deformation and is significantly reduced at predominantly plastic conditions.
