Data analysis was carried out using the general linear model procedure [20] to determine the effect of cut height and diameter on shear force.
Yet to date it's been difficult or impossible for most robotic and prosthetic hands to accurately sense the vibrations and shear forces that occur, for example, when a finger is sliding along a tabletop or when an object begins to fall.
Such loading produce deformation of transverse bending under constant shear force.
The exception was on the assessment of accuracy through deflection, rotation, bending moment and shear force profiles, in which only the results obtained using the DSG beam elements were presented.
therefore, the ratio of shear force, bending moment and torsion for both 2 lane and 4 lane I and Box girder is generated and a graph is plotted against the varying span length and given in figure 2 to 8.
Given the high prevalence of knee OA and the importance of the knee joint in running, studies are needed that examine strategies to reduce the biomechanical factors implicated in the development of knee OA: the external KAM and LM shear force at the knee.
In the 8th span, the bending moment and shear force in bearing 8 and coupling C5 meet the following relation:

The corresponding functions for shear force and for the repair probability level are similar.
In order to visualize the shear stress distributions in two layer systems subjected to surface shear force, numerical integrations were carried out on Eqs.
You can knock a jamb sideways out of its opening, but the nails or screws holding it in place put up strong resistance to the shear force you apply.
Although the spine A/P shear forces recorded were greater than the compression forces, the thoracic and lumbar spine joint A/P shear forces for the three anthropometric cases were also below the most commonly cited spine tolerance of 1 000 N for shear force, as stipulated by McGill.
