End expiration is the point on the PAWP tracing that is immediately before the negative pressure deflection that occurs with inspiration (Booker & Arnold) (see Figure One).
However, it is noted that while crazing evidence was observed in each of the pressure deflection tests, ultimate failure occurred by yielding and drawing of remaining material ahead of the notch.
The pressure deflection curve is measured using the setup in Figure 4 for a circular deflection area.
