Samples were loaded at a constant displacement rate
of 25 mm/min, with an extensometer attached to record strain in the specimen gage length.
When a specimen is pulled at a constant displacement rate
, the load first increases, attains a maximum, and then drops off precipitously to a lower value, at which point a neck is formed.
For example, data from the 1992 Worker Displacement Survey reveal that the job displacement rate
during the 5 years preceding the January 1992 interview was considerably higher for Hispanic workers (11.8 percent) than for either black (8.8 percent) or white (7.9 percent) workers.(1)
The overall displacement rate
followed the same trend, increasing to 7.9 percent for the most recent survey from 6.4 percent in the prior survey.
The correlation coefficient varies depending on epicentral azimuth and displacement rate
. In the Visso earthquake, for the closest three stations (ACCU, AMAT, GUMA) there is a strong correlation in the east and up direction, whereas in the north direction, only a strong correlation for the GUMA station is visible.
 proposed a method to modify the contact stiffness data for creep and thermal drift based on the measurement of the displacement rate
at the end of the holding period.
The specimens were statically loaded using an MTS 250 machine with a displacement rate
of 2 mm/min up to failure.
The displacement rate
increased as military operations were launched to retake the cities occupied by the militant group.
In one case, loaded at displacement rate
c1 as a constant, the deformation rate of the specimen is given by
Then the normal displacement rate
gradually decreases, approaching to a certain value eventually.
(1) The tests to determine appropriate shear displacement rate
was successfully applied before unsaturated direct shear tests.
