elastic force

elastic force

[i′las·tik ′fȯrs]
(mechanics)
A force arising from the deformation of a solid body which depends only on the body's instantaneous deformation and not on its previous history, and which is conservative.

In this case, the work of the whole system is realized in such way that the mass M does not fluctuate, and the oscillating system with mass m and the spring stiffness k, fluctuates so that elastic force of the spring is equal in magnitude and opposite in direction to the disturbing force [P.
G measures the ratio of shear force to the elastic force.
Applying the physical principle known as local symmetry to the elastic force law (Hooke's law), this theory (the field theory) formulates all stages of deformation on the same theoretical basis.
Our system consists of exchangeable and adaptable elastic force sensing modules that can be attached to state-of-the-art macrostructure robots and enable, combined with specific control laws, highly accurate force control along 4 independent degrees of freedom.
One of the purposes of push-over analysis is determining displacement and elastic force limit.
p (j [member of] J) vertices of the elastic force F(t) locus exist, then, the combinations of elastic bending moments [M.
Figure 10 shows the behavior of the elastic force of donor acceptor (Figure 10) distances between strands [beta]1 and [beta]5 during a long equilibration.
To increase the magnitude of elastic force, two strategies have been recommended in the research literature; firstly, reducing the initial length of the elastic device (Page and Ellenbecker, 2003) and secondly, doubling or tripling the number of elastic units (using additional various elastic colour coded bands in parallel (Hodges, 2006; Simoneau et al.
So the rubber band's elastic force is entropic--the stretched polymer is in a very improbable configuration, and snapping back to its resting state restores equilibrium and maximum entropy.
By this technique is possible to balance the elastic force from elastic elements by controlling the angular differences from the ends of stabilizer bars ([absolute value of [[psi].
Here the athlete uses a coiled spring like motion to produce power and aimlessly trying to increase a range of motion may inhibit this elastic force.
