u] is the ultimate relative strain, [DELTA]u is the relative normal displacement of the spring, [[DELTA]u.
11 show the distribution of the amplitude of the displacement in the thickness direction over the array cross-section and the normal displacement at the radiating surface.
It is evident from Figure 9 that the variation of normal displacement at the step across the thickness of the thicker part shows full agreement for Models A and C, whereas, Model B results are grossly erroneous but tend to approach Models A and C results for sections away from the step.
Limitations of the "Symmetry" type, that prohibit the normal displacement to the face, superimposed on face, obtained via original model section by the vertical plane, since only half of the wheel is considered in the calculations.
The simplest, vertical fault was used assuming pure strike-slip or normal displacement along vertical rupture.
Each CRT was furnished with data which expressed, as a function of frequency, the transducer sensitivity in volts per micrometer of normal displacement on the test block.
Figure 7b shows the incremental normal displacement [DELTA][u.
Decreasing aspect ratio also leads to decrease of normal displacement in sidewalls and radial displacement at the crown center (ref.
Total normal displacement signal at the given plate point is computed by superposition of normal displacements, created by all circular sub-regions.
The state of deformation of Kirchhoff plates can be presented by normal displacement w and the following fourth-order differential equation [18]:
