Suddenly there was a rending, tearing sound, and the earth split into another great crack
just beneath the spot where the horse was standing.
Motionless, one eye only turned upon the crack
, he focused that one eye upon the head and eyes of the gaunt gutter-cat whose head had erupted into the crack
like an apparition.
Why, that crack in the rock, just facing you," replied Billina, whose little round eyes were very sharp and seemed to see everything.
Oh, yes," said Dorothy, now observing for the first time the crack in the rock.
Alexey Alexandrovitch, ready for his speech, stood compressing his crossed fingers, waiting to see if the crack
would not come again.
Two radiologists interpreted the ultrasound images, looking for sonographic evidence that would correlate with the audible cracks
, which occurred in 62 of the 400 joints imaged.
Of course not all cracks
will have a significant effect on the fabric of the property.
This ultrasonic ILI tool detects and sizes axial cracks
-like features such as fatigue cracks
, stress corrosion cracking (SCC) or weld cracks
There are a lot of cracks
in solids; a crack
will propagate under biaxial loading conditions, forming wing cracks
The researchers reviewed the latest understanding in fatigue crack
propagation and life prediction with special emphasis on the influences of short cracks
and the uncertainty of multiscale flaws and microstructure constituents.
Look for cracks

Australia's Qantas Airways has taken one its prestigious Airbus A380 planes off the tarmac for up to a week after engineers found dozens of cracks
in wings after a flight was hit by turbulence.
PARIS: Airbus insisted its A380 superjumbo is safe to fly after another set of cracks
was discovered in the wings of the world's largest jetliner, though an engineering union said it was downplaying the issue and some Asian airlines said they would develop inspection programmes.
It is important to accurately assess structural cracks
to determine what is significant and what is not," said John Duntemann, a principal at consulting engineering firm Wiss, Janncy, Flstner Associates (WJE).
usually appear in structures because of imperfections in design, manufacturing, service or maintenance.
