In this regard, the traditional plane section assumption is no longer applicable, and the shape of the deformation coordination region is changed from the rectangular to the trapezoidal (Figure 4(b)); however, the strain of the tensile reinforcement in the trapezoidal is uniformly distributed.

The constructed plane section differs when the points P, Q or R are moving.
The curvatures are then calculated based on the plane section assumption from measured strains.

Mr Denney said: "Because of her small frame, she was much in demand to work in the tail plane section, while I worked outside more, but we still managed to talk through a hole in the side."
GND and a plane section VCC1 are analyzed and are part of all circuit models out, so that we can investigate noise on the supplies.
