So, next to increasing the adhesive strength, also the cohesive strength of the rubber as a function of the curing time must be investigated.
It's been reported the occurrence of hydrogen induced inter-granular or transgranular quasi-cleavage fracture largely depends on tramp element (P, Sb, Sn, As) segregation to grain boundaries and the subsequent loss of grain boundary cohesive strength. Hydrogen embrittlement is typically studied in Ni-CrMo type steels used in energy production.
A material's ability to regain cohesive strength can be associated with self-bonding and self-healing behavior.
All the products and raw materials used on this area, must obey to specific parameters of quality and security while serving the purpose of cohesive strength, adhesion light colour and odour.
In accordance with the low alloying additions concept [8, 9], the "useful" alloying addictions have to increase simultaneously the cohesive strength of GBs and the cohesive energy of the bulk.
The essential difference between frozen saline soils and unfrozen soils is the ice and salt existing in frozen saline soils, which has an important influence on cohesive strength of the soil particles.
[[sigma].max] = [[sigma].max],0] (1-D) is the cohesive strength used to identify the peak value of the normal traction and [[sigma].sun.max,0] is the initial cohesive strength.
According to the results of these numerical simulations, the comprehensive cohesive strength and internal friction angle curves of rockmass with different dip angles are shown in Figure 6.
All of the failure modes observed in this study was of adhesive type and this may indicate that the bond strength may be weaker than the cohesive strength of the resin composite used, regardless of aging, although cohesive strength of the resin composite was not measured.
Can we develop a rural vision that has as much cohesive strength, ka-pow and downright va-va-vavoom as any Newcastle, Edinburgh, Manchester, Cardiff, Birmingham or London?
Separation in the bulk of the weaker adhering phase is called cohesive failure and related to the cohesive strength of that bulk phase.34 In another word, cohesive failure within the composite occurs when the bond strength between the enamel and composite is stronger than cohesive strength of the restorative material.
