Solving this non-linear cable lengthening problem begins with analyzing the kinematics of the flexure
and the requirements imposed by this non-linear behavior.
Characteristics attributed to the flexure
design are the elimination of friction and side-loads at non-vertical angles, unwanted particulate accumulation caused from bearing/bushing shedding, and its inherent ability to return the magnet to mid-stroke when re-energized
Measurement accuracy can be severely degraded if these cables are not stable over time and flexure
hinges in a three-point kinematic mounting system avoid contact coupling and friction in the system.
The first preliminary flexural tests were conducted on PEI and PA joints, evaluating the difference in fatigue life for both single direction 30 degree flexures
and +/- 45 degree reversing flexures
With the use of a close-up video camera, we determined that flexures
often occurred in response to mechanical stimuli caused by various organisms and particles.
Like most giant greenstone gold deposits, Ahafo is associated with a flexure
of the belt bounding shear zone.
Much of the ore mined at Detour is controlled by flexures
or folds in the laterally extensive cherty mine horizon (CMH), a structurally significant unit at a mafic-ultramafic contact.
1% accuracy and features specially designed Weigh Bars instead of the commonly used welded flexures
By using newly developed actuators, flexures
, and controls, Inertial Harmonic Drive-based products can be powered from a standard USB port, requiring no extra power supply or cabling.
In the Lannitang area brittle fracturing and fault bends and flexures
control much mineralization emplacement in the sandy or carbonaceous metasediments of the carboniferous Shaushanguan Formation.
Stockwork veining is continuously developed along the dipping plane of these flexures
with higher-grade zones locally developed.
