En su extremidad sur, la falla se conecta con el sistema de piedemonte llanero colombiano a traves del sistema de fallas de ChinacotaBramon, luego de sufrir dos inflexiones en angulo recto opuestas; estructura conocida como el indentor o punzon de Pamplona (Boinet, 1985; FIGURA 1).
The indentor was set to move at a constant speed of 50 mm/min.
Hardness measurements were taken in the central area of each specimen and readings were recorded immediately after removal of the indentor to minimise the effects of elastic recovery of polymers on the results.
On borehole indentor (BHI) measurement and analysis", Cold Regions Science and Technology, 76-77, 2012, 109-120.
not including the pileup around the indentation which varies in direction according to the shape of the three-cornered indentor.
Most instruments used in the past have an indentor that compresses the tissue while both force and tissue deformation are recorded simultaneously.
The microhardness of the condensates was measured on transverse sections of the specimens using a Polivar Met optical microscope fitted with an attachment for measuring hard-ness at a constant load on the indentor of 0.
This solution softens the dentin as determined by a knoop indentor and the extent of demineralization is proportional to exposure time and pH.
Our results allow for the conversion between different hardness scales, not only between hardness scales of the same indentor geometry, but those of different geometries as well.
The methodology and test variables, including indentor type (hammerstone or wooden baton), presence of sarcotesta, and seed carbonisation extent (see Asmussen 2005) were based on traditional processing methods as described in ethnographic and historical documents (Gardner and Bennetts 1956; Goodale 1971; Levitt 1981; Maiden 1889, 1890; Meehan and Jones 1977; Roth 1901; Thomson 1938; Thozet 1878; Turner 1893).
The large clockwise rotations and displacements predicted by the indentor model for Borneo are incompatible with palaeomagnetic evidence and there is no evidence that the major strike--slip faults of the Asian mainland reach Borneo.
