corner effect

corner effect

[′kȯr·nər i′fekt]
(electronics)
The departure of the frequency-response curve of a band-pass filter from a perfect rectangular shape, so that the corners of the rectangle are rounded.
(engineering)
In ultrasonic testing, reflection of an ultrasonic beam directed perpendicular to the intersection of two surfaces 90° apart.

This corner effect decreases the CCC (current carrying capacity) of bended traces compared to straight trace with the same width....
This is mainly due to the "corner effects" or the "Gregorig effect" caused by surface tension, which causes the condensate at the corners to pull the liquid from the center of the flat wall, making it thinner.
In addition, thin-shell simulations have a new ability to isolate warpage due to corner effects.
In addition, edge and/or corner effects were suspected.
The deformation was more exaggerated than for non-voided samples, showing significant bulging of the sides, and at 60% bulk compression (and 80%, not shown), definite corner effects were noticeable.
The complex sectional band deformation seen with square samples was virtually absent as shown by parallel layer lines, i.e., no corner effects were observed, whereas strain localization in the layers was evident but less pronounced.
