This test was completed in a much shorter time min) than compression stress relaxation and permanent set experiments.
On the basis of the information developed using the compression stress relaxation method, ISO 3884(A), the design engineer is, however, still not able to create the right geometry for a static seal because all measurements are made at the temperature of the aging.
The increment in ground compression stress deforms its skeleton and causes the recession of water from pores.
Since the model predicts that an increase in the radius of the bone indenter should reduce the peak compression stress in underlying muscle (Appendix), the pathoanatomy of the IT in subjects with paraplegia may theoretically have some protective effect as related to DTI, but it is counteracted by the loss of muscle thickness that increases muscle stresses.
Table 2 underlines the behavior of these TPV grades in compression stress relaxation at 23[degrees]C (73[degrees]F).
In the keys plane shear forces T induce a compression stress [[sigma].
The same explanation is suitable for the longitudinal surface stress that changed from tension stress to compression stress under high temperature.
Gore & Associates are designed for positive sealing of aggressive fluid piping applications on fragile flanges or flanges with irregularities, where bolt torque and gasket compression stress must be limited.

After completing what were essentially static tests, the o-rings were examined for their dynamic response in a compression stress relaxation device [7-9].
The beams that contained butt joints at the compression side indicated a low stiffness due to inability of compression stress transmission across butt joints at the initial stage of bending test.

While compression set is commonly seen as a primary property, many designers prefer to establish compression stress relaxation (CSR) values to more fully characterize a material's sealing capability.
