Field testing of rock mass deformability includes significant larger volumes of rock mass than laboratory samples and some of them may represent rock mass behaviour.
RBC deformability is inversely correlated with blood viscosity, meaning that the more deformable the RBCs are, the less viscous the blood.
For rational application of mineral wool products for constructive purposes, the data about changes in their deformability under loads are indispensable.
Shape transformation affects the aggregation of erythrocytes directly either through deformability or altered shape.
Deformability of both recycled compounds increases after compatibilizer addition.
If properly stiffened, a column web panel is considered as a rigid component and deformability of it could be disregarded.
