elastic deflection

elastic deflection

The deflection of a structural element when a load is applied to it, and which recovers when the load is removed, as opposed to the deflection resulting from creep, 1.

What we are seeing is the immediate elastic deflection of the sample (0.
In this formulation, the governing equations for large elastic deflection of thin plates are represented by two coupled nonlinear differential equations, known as Von Karamn equations, which are expressed in terms of the displacement w and a stress function F [1]:
Object of the contract includes the delivery of the measuring system, which will consist of at least the following elements - Brand new (made in 2015), fully equipped and instrumented measurement system with software that enables dynamic measurement of elastic deflection of pavement.
Taking advantage of linear elastic deflection, FELA's flexure-based bearings provide frictionless motion.
To ensure proper pavement performance during the period it is designed for, it is essential that there are no plastic deformations in any pavement layer, the continuity of the monolithic layers is not interrupted and the elastic deflection does not exceed the maximum design deviation after applying the design load (Tarawneh, Sarireh 2013).
w] is the MOE (GPa), P is the difference between the arithmetic average of the upper and the lower limits of applied force in the elastic deformation zone (N), f is the net elastic deflection difference between the measured elastic deflection in the upper and the lower loading limits (m), l is the span (m), b is the cross-sectional width of the test sample (m), and h is the cross-sectional thickness of the test sample (m).
Elastic Deflection of Wood-Fiberglass Composite Beams.
Bearinx takes into consideration non-linear elastic deflection behaviour of bearings; the elasticity of shafts and axles; and the influence of fit, temperature and speed on bearing operating clearance, preload and contact angle.
Dr Steve Lacey, engineering manager at Schaeffler UK, comments: "Unlike most calculation tools currently on the market, our software takes everything into consideration, including non-linear elastic deflection behaviour of bearings; the elasticity of shafts and axles; the influence of fit, temperature and speed on bearing operating clearance, preload and contact angle.
From a clinical perspective, this would cause a decrease in elastic deflection of the archwire, in excess of predicted values, leading to inefficient tooth movement.
