It can be seen from Figure 15(a) that, with corrosion time increasing, the elastic module of Group A and Group B increases at first and then gradually declines.
[epsilon] = 1/[eta][[sigma].sub.0]t + [[sigma].sub.0]/[E.sub.0], (1) where [E.sub.0] is the initial elastic module, t is the time course, and [[sigma].sub.0] is the initial stress.
For denim dual core applications the Schlafhorst technologists recommend the injection splicer with elastic module and setting and the LC5 / 2.5 EB2 prism as a set.
By reasons of geometrical symmetry of the two pockets in the membranes unit, the mesh was applied only to a single elastic module. The elements of the two guiding and control rings have merged common nodes with them of the elements of the membrane in contact.
Elastic module of almost all tested mortars (Figure 4) with a lime binder is low, as desired, ranging from 2000MPa to 3000MPa, and variations from 28 days to 90 days are not significant.
The report summarizes the reasons why MODCOMP4 was selected for the computations and analyses of the deflection data, provides a summary of the results using the linear elastic module (Young's modulus) for selected test sections, and identifies those factors that can have a significant effect on the results.
where [[epsilon].sub.1] is the axial strain of rocks; [[epsilon].sub.3] is the radial strain of rocks, and [[epsilon].sub.3] = -v[[epsilon].sub.1], in which v is the Poisson ratio; [[sigma].sub.1] is the maximum principal stress; [[sigma].sub.3] is the minimum principal stress; [E.sub.i] is the unloading elastic module of the i point; and [v.sub.i] is the Poisson ratio.

The diagram shows that the flexural elastic module [E.sub.b] decreases with increasing distances and decreases especially for the smaller thickness.
The Poisson's ratios of the layer materials: [v.sub.1] = 0.4, [v.sub.2] = 0.3, the elastic module ratios for the PC bar [[xi].sub.2.1] = 10, and the NC [[xi].sub.2.1] = 0.1, the radial dimension: r = 0.500 m, R = 0.754 m .
