    • Bridges can be designed either to remain elastic during the design earthquake or to undergo irreversible but controlled deformation or displacement.
    • The possibility that this scrappy specimen has also undergone very significant deformation should be considered.
    • When the load exceeds a value corresponding to the yield strength, the specimen undergoes gross plastic deformation.
    • As a result, the culverts may undergo excessive deformation or failure rendering the culverts unserviceable.
    • He proposed that insight into the mechanism of rock deformation could be obtained by subjecting confined samples to high pressures in the laboratory.
    • Quartz veins are abundant throughout the property and most appear to be related to Cretaceous deformation of the country rocks.
    • These descriptions indicate that there has been no significant crystal deformation in these rocks.
    • There was asphalt cracking due to tensile strain resulting from plastic deformation within the crushed rock.
    • At high enough stresses, irreversible processes accompany deformation.
    • The Catalinas, in all of their grandeur, are going through that process of deformation right now.
    • Thus it was able to undergo intense transformations, such as mechanical deformation or metamorphism, but remain always in proximity to the surface.
    • In physics, something plastic is capable of undergoing continuous deformation without rupture or relaxation; in biology it denotes the ability to form new tissue.
    • Subsequently, between the Late Proterozoic and the Mesozoic, the rocks throughout the region suffered periodic episodes of deformation.
    • It indicates that some deformation and erosion of the Annascaul rocks occurred prior to deposition of the Ballynane Formation.
    • This again is a criterion of little value in high-strain rocks, where fine banding is a common consequence of deformation.
    • It is a light grey, porphyritic volcanic to subvolcanic rock, which shows almost no deformation.
    • Color-coding depicts the direction and magnitude of the deformation, with red indicating deformation along the outward normal of the structure and blue along the inward normal.
    • The outer zones accommodate the most deformation and energy absorption, while less deformation takes place the closer the collision approaches the passenger compartment.
    • This process involves two complementary kinds of deformation.
    • He may have some recollection of a study of cattle in fields downwind of the Steelworks, which indicated that fluorides deposited in these fields eaten by cattle produced discoloration of teeth and deformation of hooves.
