Fracture propagation criteria are dominated by the composite criteria of volumetric plastic shear strain increment and volumetric plastic tensile strain increment, which indicates that if the volumetric plastic shear strain increment or the volumetric plastic tensile strain increment exceeds zero, then the fracture propagates.
Caption: Figure 10: Deformation process during tensile test (model J; [epsilon] is tensile strain in z direction.

So for this area it may be assumed, that the sum of factors: large values of tensile strain in certain directions, existence of fault outcrops and covering of old extraction edges in several coal seams were causes of deformations arising.
The cell-collagen solutions were added into the loading chambers of our custom-built uniaxial tensile strain bioreactor [28] and polymerized at 37[degrees]C for 1 hour.
where [[alpha].sub.c] is the parameter value of curve falling section, obtained according to the specification of different concrete strength; [f.sup.*.sub.c] is the uniaxial compressive strength of concrete obtained by material test; [[epsilon].sub.c] is the peak tensile strain corresponding to [f.sup.*.sub.c], the uniaxial compressive strength of concrete; [d.sub.c] is the uniaxial compression damage evolution coefficient of concrete; [E.sub.c] is the elastic modulus of the concrete.
Meanwhile, the smaller the rebar spacing, the smaller the tensile strain measured.
The variation of the lengths of the Cr-O bonds around a single Cr atom was determined as a function of the applied tensile strain. As shown in Figure 5(a), there exist three equivalent Cr-O bonds (green) above the Cr atom and another three equivalent Cr-O bonds (blue) below this atom, which is indicated as [Cr.sup.*].
The peak tensile strain ranged between 2727 [mu][epsilon] and 276 [mu][epsilon] while the peak compressive strain ranged between -3907 [mu][epsilon] and -324 [mu][epsilon].
The most common tests for tensile strength (MPa or PSD are tensile chord modulus of elasticity (MPA or PSD, tensile strain (%), Poisson's ratio and transition strain (%).
However, after induction bending, these properties rapidly decrease because a new microstructure is obtained and also tensile strain, in extrados part, and compression strain in intrados part, is given to the material.

The PLA/PHO blend containing 10 wt% PHO had enhanced tensile strain and unnotched impact strength compared to PLA, confirming that PHO acts as an impact modifier.
3C), thus suggesting that even folded fibers experience tensile strain. In other words, a typical hyper-inflation should be more than sufficient to straighten the IM-3 collagen fibers completely, yet the fibers remained slightly wavy.
It is assumed that at the crack, the tensile strain approaches infinity, whereas the stress-strain relation before cracking defines the strain at a distance besides the crack.
