  • Cranial Deformation Essay

    Artificial cranial deformation—or the practice of intentionally altering the shape of a person’s skull—has been practiced by Neanderthals about 40,000 years ago until very recently, maybe even still today. People on every continent except Antarctica have done it, making heads more cylindrical, cone-shaped, and ridge, bumpier or flat depending on the area. (Romero, et al 2010: 2-5) This paper argues that Mayans practiced cranial deformation to show an association with a particular social group. Further research should focus on the effects of cranial modification on effects. Mayan methods of skull deformation. The two heads on the right were shaped with wooden boards. Image: Fruitpunchline/Wikimedia Commons Introduction The first cranial deformations may have been by accident. Infants are born with lots of different bones in their skulls, which enables them to exit the womb more easily and for their brains to grow. By age five, the gaps between the bones start to combine together to make the skull more contiguous, like we see in adults. It’s easy to opine that a baby with a soft skull that lies for a long time while his mother is working would get a partial flattened skull as a…

  • Parana Pine: An Analysis Of Young's Modulus Value

    However the geometry of how the given load is placed onto the material is important as well, based on the tension and bending properties of the given material. Material Stiffness is the Young’s Modulus of a material, therefore the how much loads the material would resist before elastic deformation. For example: For the component stiffness of Timber, the Timber generally has more stiffness when it is placed on the ‘edge on’, since the deflection is smaller, usually of: 3mm at 1KN of load, this…

  • Analysis Of Durometer Hardness

    matrix and fibre with low capacity of absorption, which results in micro crack initiation which leads to failure so value was less, Then material D with 2% silicon carbide and activated charcoal shows 0.110 Kgm because silicon carbide has high hardness and excellent thermal shock resistance, but activated charcoal reacted with that lead to decrease its impact strength and its value is less than material E. The Test results shows that by adding mica to the material we can get better impact…

  • Biaxial Tensile Test

    Data Analysis Biaxial Tensile Tests Different stress and strain definitions have been used to study the biomechanics of soft tissue [24]. The 2nd Piola-Kirchhoff stress and Green strain definitions have been employed in this study, which are described briefly in the following. The Green strain tensor is defined as E=1/2(F^T F-1), where F is the gradient deformation tensor. For the case of in-plane biaxial stretching in directions 1 and 2, the Green strain in these directions can be written…

  • Sheet Metal Case Study

    plastic deformation forming a localized neck and therefore limiting the formability of the polycrystalline sheet metal. In the sheet-metal forming industry, it is therefore, of high importance that the failure of metal sheets due to localized necking must be analyzed. In 1963, a breakthrough in formability assessment…

  • Analysis Of The Stress Concentration Experiment

    The aim of the Stress Concentration Experiment was to observe the stress concentration factor/feature for a set of mild steel specimens with various irregularities in each sample. These irregularities or “stress-raisers” include any notches and holes which vary in size (radius) and placement on the specimen (edge notches or holes) that may have an effect on the flow of stress. With the use of a Hounsfield 50 kN electrically operated tensile testing machine and 12 1-mm thick mild steel test…

  • Quality Control Case Study: Particles Deformation And Frormation

    Particle Deformation and Fragmentation: As compaction force increases, contact area between particles increases, particle deformation starts to occur. Elastic deformation: granules attempt to return to their original shape or form after stress is released. Plastic deformation: granules do not totally recover after stress is released. Fragmentation occurs when compaction force continues to increase Particles fracture, create multiple new surface sites, additional contact points and potential…

  • Thermo-Mechanic Treatment Case Study

    (HTTMT) applied to studied steel. The application of an additional plastic deformation (the deformation degree between 45 – 75%) influences positive the hardness and wear value. Being a HTTMT, the plastic deformation was fallowed by quenching, the utilized agent being the oil or compressed air. When the quenching agent was the oil, the hardness increased with 6-7% and the wear diminished up to 40%. As the comparison elements were used the…

  • The Diaphragm Spring Characteristics

    about the diaphragm spring characteristics, which is affecting the overall performance of an automobile. In last chapter, applied some load on the diaphragm spring different designs. Moreover, define some characteristics such as total deformation, directional deformation, equivalent elastic strain, equivalent stress, maximum principal stress and strain energy. They are affecting the performance of the diaphragm spring clutch. The aim of this study is to define the change of the maximum reaction…
