However, the question still remains as to how to deal with the singularity problem and the answer lies in dealing with the elastic strain energy as opposed to focusing on the stress level.
The elastic strain rate is obtained from the hypo-elastic stiffness model component as follows:
As the high elastic strain energy accumulated in the rock masses is greater than the energy consumed by rock failure, imbalance of the rock mass structure occurs and the excess energy causes the rock to explode and emitted rock debris", he explained.
Lokring Technology LLC, producers of advanced fluid and gas transfer connectors, has issued a new version of its Guideline for Designing ASME B31 Pressure Piping Using Lokring Elastic Strain Preload (ESP) Fittings.
Fantino et al [6] have shown that the elastic strain of the structures and the location at which the thickness is minimal are nearly independent of the viscosity of the lubricant and that the friction and the axial flow are more important in the elastic case than in the rigid case.
Instantaneous (immediate) elastic strain [[epsilon].
Under some circumstances these perturbations of the stress field can trigger events which release enormous amounts of elastic strain energy that was stored within the deformed rock mass.
Race solar cars, build a wind-powered electrical generation facility, enter human-powered vehicle competition and invent a machine powered by stored elastic strain energy.
The pressure of that bubble puts elastic strain on the membrane, causing the drug to be forcefully ejected from a miniature nozzle in a narrow jet a mere 150 millionths of a meter (micrometers) in diameter, just a little larger than the width of a human hair.
