First, the post specimens were placed in a universal test machine (UTM) at the vertical lamination test orientation to determine edgewise flexural rigidity ([EI.
Thus, the flexural rigidity of the deck has to be increased, and the moment of inertia set to I = 0.
This leads to a substantial increase of flexural rigidity of the structure, on the whole, without a significant increasing in its entire weight (Davies, 2001; Donaldson & Miracle, 2001).
eq] is the flexural rigidity of the rod (the product of the bending stiffness of the rod and its moment of inertia), y is the vertical displacement from the center of the beam, and [E.
Skinner and Curlin [1] compared three different ingrowth prostheses, found significantly higher pain score with increasing flexural rigidity ratio (EI) of bone and prosthesis normalised by patient weight.
The results show that CCS and SCS rod designs with the same flexural rigidity have about the same axial stiffness, but the SCS rod design has a noticeably lower value of the maximum von Mises stress.
The mass distribution along the bow is part of the governing equation for the limb besides the flexural rigidity distribution.
Constrained layer systems are difficult to design because damping is a function of many variables, including: damping material stiffness and thickness; constraining layer stiffness and thickness; the flexural rigidity of the base structure and the vibration modes involved; and the temperature of the structure and frequency of the vibration.
The following assumptions were made: the stress-strain dependence of the material is linear, the cross-sectional area of the cable remains unchanged and the flexural rigidity of the cable is not taken into account.
