This phenomenon is not widely understood in the plastics industry, mainly because it starts at the microscopic level and reveals itself as cracks
that are typically misinterpreted as a mechanical fracture instead of an event that is corrosion related.
He added: "When crack
cocaine came to Leeds, what came with it was death, shootings, killings, violent street robberies and a real upsurge in violence.
The important feature accompanying a gilgai microrelief is the development in dry season of the vertical ground surface cracks
with a mean surface width up to several centimetres, a depth (by limit of probe penetration) up to several tens of centimetres, and a length of surface crack
segment up to 3 m (Knight 1980).
To illuminate the complex dynamics of the crack
era on distressed African American families, this paper takes a life-course approach (Elder, 1999; Mortimer, & Shanahan, 2003).
The average of three tested specimen values is given in terms of crack
growth resistance and resistance to crack
Use your body wisely, crack
judiciously, and heed the sounds of warning.
ij]  are the crack
stress intensity factors (SIF) for i=I,II,III modes and for j=1,2,3&4, the load index.
The result is that some cartons--by the time they get to market--may have eggs with too many cracks
The technology emulates human graders who squeeze an egg along suspected cracks
to see if it opens.
The relationship of subcritical crack
growth rate a to the stress intensity factor K has been determined for many polymers and is typically expressed in the form:
Using a small transducer, a sonographer recorded video images of 400 MPJs, as participants attempted to crack
An example of such movement can be seen at the junction of a house and a new extension, often resulting in a vertical crack
where the two structures meet.
NDT Global has announced the commercial availability of the LineExplorer UC crack
detection Intelligent Inline Inspection tool for 6-inch pipelines.
MasterLife CRA 007 admixture improves the aesthetics and long-term stability of concrete by decreasing the likelihood that cracking will occur and, if it does, reduces the crack
There are a lot of cracks
in solids; a crack
will propagate under biaxial loading conditions, forming wing cracks
