Silica fume suspension increases the yield stresses of cement paste and the viscosity of the paste reduces with a higher content of silica fume.
The device was successfully used in applying load to small wood specimens and monitoring wood compression yield and relaxed compression yield stresses (Ohshima 2002) and wood shrinkage stresses (Cheng et al.
It is observed from Figure 6(d) that the yield stresses for the grain size variants increase with increasing strains due to different misorientation angles and the grain curvatures (Cr1, Cr2, Cr3, and Cr) during grain deformation.
Although none of the comparative studies [9, 16, 50] reported yield stresses or yield strains, the load-extension data were presented graphically in comparative studies I [9] and III [16].
The axial w (z) and lateral u (z) displacements of a column with the plastic deformations can be compared with displacements [w.sub.e] (z) and [u.sub.e] (z) of the same column and the same forces N , F applied, but yield stresses assumed [[sigma].sub.Y] [right arrow] [infinity].
Furthermore, the yield stress of samples sintered at 1000[degrees]C is 13.3 MPa and the yield stresses of samples sintered at 1100[degrees]C and 1200[degrees]C are almost identical and reach 17.5 MPa.
The comparisons between the predicted yield stresses and experimental data versus the rubber and talc volume contents at a strain rate of [10.sup.-2]/s are shown in Fig.
For all blends studied, the reported yield stresses are lower than the yield stress of neat PP and the tensile strength of neat PS which are 31.6 MPa and 29.9 MPa, respectively.
