Drivers and pedestrians are warned of the impending disruptions and, right, the degraded surface
at the junction of Hales Street, Bishops Street and Corporation Street
Micromechanical properties of the degraded surface
of the PP and its nanocomposite materials were evaluated using the MTS Nano Indenter[R] G200 system ((MTS Cooperation, Nano Instruments Innovation Center, TN), equipped with the TestWorks 4 Professional software and a continuous stiffness measurement (CSM) control unit.
The optical image and topology of degraded surface
after the biological test were recorded by the aid of a Leica DMR optical microscope and a DME Scanner atomic force microscope (AFM) DS 95-50, respectively.
Low [I.sub.c]/P values are used in the analyses to represent degraded surface
conditions, although high surface runoff contributions to the riparian zone are not exclusive to degraded hillslope conditions (see e.g.
The degraded surface
was found to partially relax on annealing at temperatures below either of these values of [T.sub.g].
Reasons included high machine price, slow machining speeds, high operating cost, micro-cracking that degraded surfaces
of workpieces, limitations on workpiece size compared with conventional machining processes, limitations on workpiece taper, and lack of familiarity of the process by most manufacturing and design engineers.
