They saw the robin carry food to his mate two or three times, and it was so suggestive of afternoon tea
that Colin felt they must have some.
The gloomy gardener happened to be ill in bed, and the assistant was at vespers-- as Lutheran Germany calls afternoon tea
or its equivalent-- so the nurse filled up the holes as well as she could with mould, burying the crushed and mangled roses, cheated for ever of their hopes of summer glory, and I stood by looking on dejectedly.
Except in the gross material sense of the afternoon tea
I made no preparations for Mrs.
Bertha Kircher laughed as evenly and with as little hysteria as though she were moved by the small talk of an afternoon tea
Assuming the affine deformation
of the main chains between the crosslinks in XHDPE around a pulsating bubble and the end-to-end vector of the polymer chain in its equilibrium state is [?
Later, Baumberg  found the scheme can be used to determine the affine deformation
of an isotropic structure.
An affine deformation
assumes that the crosslinks are fixed in space at positions defined by the overall specimen ratio.
Directions of affine deformation
vary widely in tree squirrels and ground squirrels, and the only species that share a common direction are two distantly related ground squirrels, Spermophilus lateralis and Sp.
Silicon oil and PTFE tape were used for lubrication during the testing allowing for affine deformation
throughout the experiment, which is explained in more detail in previous work by our group ,
Upon application of a stress, low levels of deformation can occur simultaneously throughout the length of the sample, resulting in affine deformation
Under affine deformation
, the deformation of connecting microchannels is in proportion to the bulk material.
The continuum approach generally assumes affine deformation
and thus, is incapable of describing the dispersion mechanism.
