The result has implications for our understanding of the strength of the Alpine Fault and fault zones in general, as failure properties
of fault rocks are influenced by temperature and geothermal fluids.
The main events influencing the failure are the intrinsic material failure properties
and how the loading at the crack lip is influenced by ihe impact.
Fibre addition in plain concrete are known to improve the brittle failure properties
of concrete as it controls the crack propagation in the matrix.
The experimental results for the strength, deformation, and failure properties
of the coal are analyzed.
These authors demonstrated (in unfilled peroxide cured vulcanizates) that the intrinsic flaws of this size are not manifested in failure properties
and that orientational crystallization is the dominant feature determining the strength of these materials.
That said, however, there are ductile failure properties
associated with the material, which would come into play should vehicle occupants collide with the parts during an accident.
The force and 'distance to break' are measured by their Texture Expert Exceed software and used as indicators of tensile strength and ultimate failure properties
(failure stress [[sigma].sup.r] and failure strain [[epsilon].sup.r]) were obtained using the Videotraction[C] system, as well as the volume strain response.
The curing bladder compounds mixed in this study were tested for filler dispersion, shear viscosity, tensile properties, failure properties
(fatigue life and tear) and thermal conductivity.
Quasi-static elastic, plastic, and failure properties
of solid, molded materials were measured by uniaxial tensile testing of molded specimens using a servohydraulic test frame and wedge-action grips (MTS).
Fatigue to failure properties
were determined using a fatigue to failure tester at a constant energy deformation of 3.5 X [10.sup.5] KJ [m.sup.-3].
He has made numerous contributions to understanding the mechanical and failure properties
of elastomers, particularly in the context of rubber engineering design, such as developing one of the standard hyper-elastic models widely used in commercial finite element analysis, known as the Yeoh Model.
