The peak value of deflection shows a nonlinear increase with the increasing advancing distance, but it is still on a scale of millimetre which is hard to measure or observe.
The change curve of the peak value of the residual compressive stress with the cold roll-beating rotational speed is shown in Figure 14.
The research group established a free-space explosion model and extracted the simulation results of the overpressure peak value at the measurement point of the shock waves and then compared the values with those of the commonly used free-space explosion overpressure empirical formula [23, 24]; the results show that the simulation result of the overpressure peak value at the measurement point of the shock waves is consistent with the variation trend of the empirical formula result and is most similar to the calculated result of Henrych's empirical formula [24].

While the villa rental index achieved its peak value in February 2013, the apartment rental index remains 26% lower than in January 2009, the report added.
It can be seen that the peak value occurs at the time [t.sub.1] = 0.00588 [micro]s, while the sub-peak value occurs at [t.sub.3] = 0.291 [micro]s, and after the time [t.sub.4] = 1.5 [micro]s the TGR tends to be constant.
Latest data showed that inflation already slowed down to 3 percent in April this year-a 16-month low-from its peak value of 6.7 percent in September to October last year.
In the West, places with the lowest concentration of vacation homes are 21 percent higher than they were during the housing bubble, and vacation home markets are still 3 percent lower than their bubble peak value.
The relationship between the peak value of turbulent kinetic energy and the porosity for the permeable cylinder and the peak value of turbulent kinetic energy of bare cylinder are indicated in Fig.
The figure marks less than half the currency's peak value of $17,375 in January.
AT THE time of writing, the value of Bitcoin, the 'hot' cryptocurrency, has collapsed to 38 per cent of its peak value of almost 20,000 dollars just six weeks ago.
