Among these productions in these bi-syllabic suffixed words, only ten accurate stresses were placed on the second syllable in Maltese, Burmese, blockade, and crusade.
However, since the thickness stresses are not known, traditional edge stress measurement gives no information about the real surface stresses in the area A and no information is obtained about the thickness of the compressive layer near the surfaces of the panel.
The simulations show in "live" animation the horn's amplitude and stresses during a weld through the use of visual indicators such as color and line patterns, as well as numeric values.
Since all of the testing for CSR and compression set begin with an initial deflection and involve both physical and chemical relaxation that could be affected by internal stresses and their distribution, it would be good to know the extent that each test reflects a material's response and what range of configurations might skew this response.
Electroplating introduces stresses into films, but whiskers research has focused largely on stresses created by chemical reactions in the films, such as those between tin and copper.
The residual stress measurement also can be used to eliminate problems, such as the distortion of parts during machining, which often is caused by redistribution of the residual stresses in the component after material removal or introduction of residual stresses by the machining process.
In addition, researchers have identified four occupational demands that can trigger alcohol use by law enforcement officers, namely depersonalization (reacting unemotionally to the everyday stresses of the job), authoritarianism (officers' behavior governed by a set of regulations, making them feel as if they are not in control), organizational protection (the structure in place to protect law enforcement agencies from criticism), and danger preparation (the stress related to officers knowing that their lives potentially are in constant danger).
Persons with disabilities, in addition to being made aware of the work environment and its stresses, should also be encouraged to explore their ability to deal with both physical and psychological stress to insure that they will be ready for the challenges posed to them by work.
The apparatus can resolve surface stresses on the order of 0.
Muscles, joints and bones need time to adapt to the repeated impact stresses placed on them.
A few scientists, on both sides of the Atlantic, continued to use breakdown to heighten their defense of psychology as science, testing nervous stresses in terms of cellular damage in a machine-like human animal.
