Such a support also ensures zero deflection of neutral plane along its edge.
An alternate approach to correcting misalignment/non-orthogonality errors is to take readings at several different probe deflections and extrapolate to zero deflection. Note that a linear extrapolation is not appropriate because misalignment errors scale proportional to [d.sub.p.sup.2], as do non-orthogonality errors if [alpha] were recomputed at every deflection.
In testing, the slides showed zero deflection and reached strokes of over 200 cm."
Zero deflection corresponds to a south-facing surface at the initial tilt angle, which is the baseline case, and there is no increase in yield.
The scatterplot shows only a few pitches close to the zero deflection point (in Figure 5 the circle illustrates a two inch radius).
And when the edge of membrane is fixed so there are zero deflection and zero angle of rotation in the radius r
The workstations feature a proprietary dual-chamber compressed air system for superior vibration damping and the Active Air Suspension System to maintain a preset zero deflection level and compensate for load changes.
Machining and other forces directed against the clamping force are supported with zero deflection of the wedge-shaped piston.
As explained above, the constraint of zero deflection is imposed in the thick plate analysis at nodes positioned to correspond to the body bolt centers, and the analysis then yields the loads at these points, enabling the designer to size the bolts correctly.

cell", respectively; the screen is set to expose any convenient number in the reference-cell window, 1.0190 volts for example, and indicator A is left at zero deflection. The unknown emf is balanced in the usual way by turning the main-dial handle and by deflecting indicator B until the main galvanometer shows no deflection.
