Initial measurements of breaking strength were collected before submersion of the twines in seawater (Day 0).
Retaining 100-percent of the fine's breaking strength is arguably a bit of overkill nowadays, if you're starting with something like 20-pound braid (which frequently over-tests).
The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of OTR4120 on the early healing of experimental colonic anastomoses under normal conditions by measuring the breaking strength and hydroxyproline (indicator for collagen).
The weld strength was evaluated by the resin tube breaking strength, which is the part breaking format, or the weld boundary surface peel strength.
Data on non-destructive (weight, length and width of egg) and destructive (breaking strength and shell thickness) measurements, as predictors, and the ultrastructure eggshell properties (total, thickness of palisade layer, cone layer and total score), as response variables, were analyzed according to the following regression model of SAS (2005):
It was found that the amidoximation of PAN fiber could facilitate the Fe[(bpy).sub.3.sup.2+] immobilization [16], but it had the disadvantage of retaining mechanical properties and higher weight gain rate resulted in the lower breaking strength [17, 18].
Measurement of Wound Breaking Strength. Breaking strength measurement was carried out using CT3 Texture Analyzer (Brookfield Engineering Laboratories, USA) by breaking the skin joint under tension.
When most people think of the cause of a line (chain, wire, or fiber rope) failing, they think of the load exceeding the tensile breaking strength of the line.
Unfortunately, the tensile strength of these materials was not much greater than that of artificial spider silk which has a breaking strength of about 150 megapascals.
The TA-DGA Dual Grip Accessory for use with Company's CT3 Analyzer is designed to test the tensile breaking strength of packaging materials and package seals.
RESULTS: The treatment groups showed significantly enhanced the breaking strength in incision wound (328+/-14.5) g and (421+/-18.5) g compared with control (264+/-16.7) g.
