twip

(unit, graphics)
(TWentIeth of a Point) 1/20 of a Postscript point, or 1/1440th of an inch. There are thus 1440 twips to an inch or about 567 twips to a centimeter.

Twips are used in Microsoft formats and products, notably Rich Text Format, Visual BASIC, Visual C++, and printer drivers; and in IBM AFP products.

Twips were devised in the olden days to describe the sizes of characters produced by dot matrix printers that were constrained to multiples of either 12 or 10 dots per inch.

The Fe-0.07C-18Mn-2Si-2Al steel showed transformation-induced plasticity effect (TRIP effect) as the major deformation mechanism from 25[degrees]C to 200[degrees]C, whereas deformation twinning (TWIP effect) started from 200[degrees]C to 300[degrees]C.
The occurrence of the transformation-induced plasticity effect (TRIP) or twinning mechanism (TWIP) is common at relatively low test temperature.
Within 5 days of the close of the reference week, weekly data are made available to the public on the EIA's internet web site (http://www.eia.doe.gov) through the WPSR and TWIP. Except when holidays delay data processing schedules, weekly data are available via the internet at 10:30 a.m.
Therefore, the TRIP and TWIP steels can be studied in situ for the effect of strain, strain rate, and temperature on the stability of martensite to relate to its strength.

Here we note that the high Mn contents in TWIP steels allow for high Al additions without destabilizing the austenite.
