Another had such quickness of perception that he counted all the separate motions of an elastic body, while it was springing backward and forward at the rate of nine hundred millions of times in a second.'"
Let us consider the basic equations of the dynamic elasticity theory for a homogeneous isotropic elastic body in the Cartesian coordinate system.
Muslimova draws her perpetually naked, pleasantly zaftig second self into innumerable graphic scenarios, her elastic body functioning as a vehicle for dirty jokes and insuppressible energies.
It is known that the stiffness of a rock is a measure of the resistance offered by an elastic body to deformation.
Since the equations of interest here describing fluid flow, elastic body deformation, and solid body movement satisfy these conditions, let us consider their discretization in detail.
With the face of a young Frances de la Tour and the seemingly elastic body of Popeye's girlfriend Olive Oyl, Fiona Gordon gives a performance of extraordinarily agility and precision as Fiona.
A finite element model of the vehicle body needs to be established in order to obtain the rigid-flexible coupling dynamics model, including the elastic body. The polycondensation theory is used to carry out the polycondensation of the vehicle body finite element model [12].
where [[sigma].sub.j] is the nonlocal stress tensor, v is the volume occupied by the elastic body, [absolute value of x - x] denotes distance in Euclidean space, and the nonlocal kernel [alpha] ([absolute value of x - x]) accounts for the effect of the strain at the point x on the stress at the point x in the elastic body.
Key statement: Objects of the present invention are to provide a rubber composition that can obtain a rubber elastic body having small rolling resistance and excellent impact resilience and a method for producing the same, and to provide a tire having small rolling resistance and excellent impact resilience.
