The resistance for the crack propagation in MD is highly correlated to the pull-out of polymer chains [3] which is related to the ability of films to deform plastically in TD.
It featured a large impact absorber connected to the steering column via a plastically deformable element.
In a previous study, the experimental removal of predators increased egg size and the feeding of nestlings, but not clutch size (Fontaine and Martin 2006), which suggests that clutch size cannot be plastically changed.
Cold roll-beating forming technique is a near-net shaping technology, in which the rotating rigor roller with the specific tooth profile rolls and beats the blank with high speed, owing to the plasticity of metal itself, the surface metal of the blank plastically flows, and forming of work-piece overall by cumulating deformation of continuous tiny region with the relationship of relative motion between the rigor wheel and blank is realized.
With increasing solder gap thickness, the size of the plastically deformed zone in the solder increases, resulting in transformation of a brittle interfacial fracture to a ductile fracture within the bulk of the solder.
Figure 7 shows a micrograph of the bonded zone, where microfeatures were injection molded, bonded to the wrought material surface, and deform plastically to allow for shrinkage of the MIM compact during sintering.
As the form die is driven into the sheet, which is gripped tightly at its edges, the tensile forces increase and the sheet plastically deforms into a new shape.
Some polymers--such as those with hydrogen bonds, including cellulose, chitin, and polyvinyl alcohol--cannot easily be plastically deformed.
Hence, we conclude that of soils with no OM, only those with clay content >10% can behave plastically.
The figures are well-placed, light and plastically precise.
The yield strength (also known as yield point) of a material in engineering (and or materials science) is the point of stress that a material starts to deform plastically.
