Two of the data segments show a long-lasting fast oscillation with multiple maxima during the 24-hour interval (recording dates: 20 November 2009 [data segment 1], 21 November 2009 [data segment 2]).
This way, the 10-Hertz alpha oscillation stimulation for each side of the cortex would be in unison.
Stress oscillation is a rare phenomenon and can be triggered only for several semi-crystalline polymers at a certain testing temperature, because it appears to be controlled by strain-induced oriented crystallization and related local heat release [4, 5], Amorphous PET exhibits stress oscillation in air at room temperature, but it presents no oscillation under water.

Prior to all oscillation analyses, Pmo(t) data were normalized to the last recorded pressure in order to avoid the possible effect of interruptions, occurring at different flows [18-21].
In accordance with the formulation of the problem, the following range of the variation of the test parameters was used: oscillation frequency 150-1000 Hz, temperature 20-400[degrees]C (on the whole, these parameters correspond to the service conditions of the working blades of the compressor of the aviation gas turbine engine).
