In view of the length, the paper described the machining process of the deflection curve of the center hole of the crankshaft hole in the body structure.
Based on the elastic foundation beam theory, the deflection of the rock beam, denoted as w(x), and the applied load, denoted as q, satisfy the following differential equation of the deflection curve of the foundation beam:
Both qualitative and quantitative analyses based on the normalized stress against deflection curve, and the [K.sub.IC] and the [G.sub.F] were employed.
Figure 5 shows load deflection curve of 20mm polypropylene panel with 2 and 3 layers.
In the past Smeared approach was used to identify the cracks in RC beam using ANSYS but in this work it was extended using discrete approach of modeling and shear cracks were identified in RC beam and load deflection curve was simulated which showed good agreement with the experimental results.
During each cycle, load against the deflection curve and load against the steel strain curve were recorded; and at failure, the failure mode was highlighted.
It would be expected that this absolute value of maximum deflection curve maintains a constant shape and that the maximum value of each deflection curves does not exceed the maximum deflection when subjected to a step load.
Figure 8 shows an unfiltered sample deflection curve of the needle tip (see Figure 8(b)) and forces and moments at the needle base during insertion (see Figure 8(a)).
It is remarkable that, in cases with closed-form solution, the location of the maximum deflection, bending moment or shear force can be found by differentiating the equation of the deflection curve. Moreover, in the range of elastic behaviour, the superposition assumption holds and once the closed-form or numerical integration of the derived equation is found, it can be easily extended to any arbitrary loading pattern.
A load vs central deflection curve is determined from the 3PB test.
The pressure deflection curve is measured using the setup in Figure 4 for a circular deflection area.
