The extruded and cured profile parts were tested for compression load deflection (CLD) and compression set.
Midspan Load Deflection. The load-deflection curves of each beam, whose support displacements at both ends were modified, are shown in Figure 10.

It is evident from Table VI that the increase in ultimate and service load deflection was found to be 94.12% and 60.61% respectively, when compared to that of plain concrete.
Flexural capacity, load deflection relationship and failure modes were observed and compared with the strengthened beams tested at 20 [degrees]C.
Figure 5 shows load deflection curve of 20mm polypropylene panel with 2 and 3 layers.
In the past Smeared approach was used to identify the cracks in RC beam using ANSYS but in this work it was extended using discrete approach of modeling and shear cracks were identified in RC beam and load deflection curve was simulated which showed good agreement with the experimental results.
Numerical simulation was conducted at air pressure values of 3000, 4000, and 5000 pa; the load deflection behavior of the ETFE inflatable beam adopting shell model is shown in Figure 9.
The experimental fatigue life and load deflection are determined on a full scale leaf spring testing machine.
These indices were calculated by dividing the area under load deflection curve up to the prescribed deflection--with the area under the load--deflection curve up to the first crack deflection.
It is manufactured of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) in a twin-sheet thermoformed process for increased strength and durability and minimal load deflection. Weighing 26.5 pounds, the pallet supports a 3,000 pound static load and a 2,800-pound dynamic load.
