Possible conjectures for the aggravation of clinical symptoms in the pericollapse stage include deteriorative structural instability of the femoral head, enhanced secretion of inflammatory mediators, elevated intramedullary pressure, and increase in hyperstatic pressure caused by joint effusion, etc.[18],[19],[20],[22],[33],[35] There are, of course, exceptions.
According to Muttoni, Schawartz, and Thurlimann (2006), reinforced concrete structures are internally hyperstatic and the internal forces acting on each element directly depends on the rigidity of it.

The hyperstatic problem associated with this layout is solved, and a bending stiffness equivalent to the combined joint is presented.
The real evidence of the finite life of riveted metal bridges is represented by recent collapses: concentration of stresses in the bridge, due to addition of very heavy weight of construction equipment and material placed on the bridge itself combined with the already high stresses due to under-designed thicknesses could result in tragic and brittle progressive collapse, as reported in Astaneh-Asl (2008) concerning the I35-W bridge collapse in Minneapolis, USA (2007); long term differential vertical settlement of bearings in hyperstatic structures could lead to concentration of stresses in fatigue damaged corroded members, and this has lead to the sudden collapse of the Piacenza Po bridge in Italy in 2009.
An effect of structural and technological features on the design methodology of hyperstatic precast reinforced concrete and composite steel-concrete structures is discussed.
essay on the fetishization of black female writers and critics as icons of "hyperstatic alterity," duCille also targets white feminists: "The colonial object is furthered not only by the canonical literature of the west, but also by would-be oppositional feminists who continue to see whiteness as so natural, normative, and unproblematic that racial identity is a property only of the nonwhite" (219).
It has a proprietary hyperstatic adapter mechanical clamping system that permits adapter mount repeatability of 0.0005 mm.
Ann duCille's essay, for instance, elucidates the numerous ways that black women have become the "fetishized object of contemporary critical inquiry" and are forced into a state of "hyperstatic alterity." Two essays respond specifically to these charges.
