His words; 'We have discovered that people now use primary feeder lines as point load.
In order to determine engineering properties of limestone five core samples from each formation were taken from boreholes and different laboratory tests (Schmidt rebound hammer value, Uniaxial compressive test, Point load test) were performed.
provides a 12-by-2.75-inch-wide support platform to reduce cable stress points, strain, sag, and heat build-up and eliminate point load. The extender can be used for high-performance communications cabling, security, Voice over Internet Protocol, and fiber optic cabling.
What caught my attention lately was CCI's 2018 introduction of their .22 LR Mini-Mag Segmented Hollow Point load. Boy, is there a story there.
No external point load was applied in the first load step, the initial prestrain due to prestressing was applied to the girders, and the initial strains for real constant for prestressing strands were determined from effective prestress ([f.sub.pe]) and the modulus of elasticity ([E.sub.ps]).
One of the loading types which can significantly reduce the lifetime of the pipe is so called "point load." Point load is considered here as additional external loading of the pressurized polymer pipe concentrated to the small area at the surface, typically from isolated rock or stone, see Fig.
Point load (PL), uniaxial compressive strength (USC) and crushability (C) tests have been compared earlier for usability and the former has been found to be the most operative and feasible approach for oil shale testing in situ [20].
This avoided the need to alter the existing building system to accommodate the point load from the door prop.
The results indicate that there is a strong inverse linear correlation between LA abrasion values and strength determined from point load te st and a significant correlation exists between LA abrasion values and strength estimated from Schmidt rebound hammer.
This work presents the development of possible empirical relations between UCS values determined by direct and indirect testing methods including Point Load Index and Sonic Velocity for dolerite.
The effect of bendingextension coupling and the dependence of the coupling on the modulus ratio can be seen from the deflections and stresses presented in Table 2 for antisymmetric angle ply laminates [(-45/45).sub.k] for k = 1, 2, and 4, and subjected to center point load and uniformly distributed load.
