ultimate strain

The strain at which a material fails under test.

The music was sounding its ultimate strains and people were looking for the marquise, to make their farewells.
The ultimate strain of the samples containing different clays decreases in different proportions with respect to the control, the smallest being that of NBR/Na-A (decreased by almost half).
One of the benefits of using the image correlation photogrammetry technique is that it gives the strain readings of large-scale elements in a short time without any limitation of ultimate strain capacities, unlike strain gauges.
In this case, the load was applied incrementally until the plastic strain in an element reached to its ultimate strain (element is "killed").
Ultimate strain curves at different temperatures and vacancy concentrations are shown in Figure 6.
[f'.sub.cc] and [[epsilon].sub.cc] are, respectively, the ultimate compressive strength and ultimate strain of the confined concrete.
The static tensile test results of corroded rebars have shown that, with the development of the corrosion degree, the nominal yield and ultimate strengths and the ultimate strain of a corroded rebar decrease.
Corrosion will lead to the degradation of the geometric parameters of steel and mechanical properties, mainly reflected in the following [2-4]: (1) loss of mass and effective cross-sectional area; (2) the decline of nominal yield stress and ultimate stress; (3) the decrease of the nominal elongation rate and ultimate strain; and (4) the degradation of bond-slip.
However, when the applied load reaches the failure load, the ultimate strain of the CFRP sheet is lower than 6000 [mu][epsilon], which is less than half of the elongation of CFRP sheet.
Ultimate strain refers to the ratio of length increment to initial length along the direction of stress when biological materials are broken, and it is dimensionless.
It is among the best spun polymer fibres in terms of tensile strength, ultimate strain, and especially toughness, even when compared to synthetic fibres such as Kevlar," said Nicola Pugno, of the University of Trento.
