During the modern downswing, greater compressive force is directed toward the spinal disc and facet joints, affecting these structures asymmetrically.
That occurs from a combination of the high compressive force and the angular motion of the flight relative to the barrel wall during rotation.
The researchers found that for pain, function, six-minute walk distance, physical and mental health-related quality of life (HRQOL), knee joint compressive force, and interleukin-6, there were significant dose responses to weight loss.

The compressive force will be increased from 1.50kfg/[cm.sup.2] (0.150 MPa) to 3.50kfg/[cm.sup.2] (0.35 MPa) per second.
[18] used the compressive force test from a 13.8 mm diameter stainless steel probe to measure the texture of pita bread.
This study focused on normal forces acting between the V-surface of the belt elements and pulleys, the compressive force between the belt elements and the frictional forces on the elements' V-surface.
