If you live in a new home and you come across cracks
, wait until a year after the home's completion to tend to them, as the lumber needs to dry.
He said the second possible cause for the cracks
could be due to the compaction of the fill material for the road.
They divided the sample cities based on whether the arrival of crack
cocaine coincided with an above- or below-median increase in the fraction of gun-related suicides.
Torque Lock Structural Systems is the manufacturer and distributor of the patented Torque Lock[TM] Staple, a revolutionary technique used to repair structural cracks
on any solid cement based surface.
According to the theory of elastic crack
mechanics and judgment basis of shear crack
under a pressure condition ([k.sub.[PI]] = [k.sub.[PI]c]) , the initial crack
strength of the crack
can be expressed as follows:
where [u.sub.I] is the nodal displacement vector, [[alpha].sub.I] is the nodal enriched degree of freedom vector for crack
penetration elements, H(x) is the jump function which represents the gap between the crack
surfaces, [b.sup.i.sub.I] is the nodal enriched degree of freedom vector for crack
tip elements, and [[psi].sub.i] (x) is the crack
tip functions which represent the crack
Here, the objective is to develop of an analytical method to calculate the effect of FPZ on shear cracks
in RC beam based on the fictitious crack
In this paper, the experiments was conducted to study the effect of time and temperature on the oil shale crack
using the oil shale from the open-pit oil shale mine of Fushun, Liaoning province, China.
The larger bend can reduce the crack
due to sufficient space or planar behavior at arc having The FE-SEM images of the AAO structures are shown in Fig.
growth analysis using fracture mechanics approach:
Ice shelves do crack
naturally, but it is a much slower process.
Considering the thermal resistance [R.sub.c] in the heat conduction through the crack
region, the thermoelastic boundary conditions on the crack
surfaces are written as
Several methods have been proposed to calculate the stress intensity factors [K.sub.I] and [K.sub.II] for an oblique crack
at the edge of a half-plane [7-12].
Initially, small cracks
appeared on the walls along with a leakage from the drain in the office of a senior officer and other rooms but the cracks
started increasing day by day.
If the wind is strong enough, even healthy trees can be uprooted or broken, but it might not take a storm or high winds to cause a cracked
or rotted tree to fail under its own weight.
