eccentric force

eccentric force

a force applied at a distance away from an axis of rotation, therefore a force causing a rotational moment (torque). Applies to all muscle actions at joints, whether the muscle itself is acting eccentrically or concentrically. See also concentric contraction, eccentric action.

Often, eccentric force transmission is to be expected.
Thus, in protocols inducing mechanical rather than metabolic fatigue due to high eccentric force requirements and relatively low energy demand, as the last downhill part of the present race, one could possibly argue for potentiation counteracting fatigue (Bogdanis, 2012; Newham et al.
Flow rates are adjustable by resetting the eccentric force during operation or with an optional speed controller.
the earnest fallacy do not speak to some engaging quality you see in yourself--for being unusual, an eccentric force of brain will; you are not the neem of a tropical tree.
An eccentric force would be acting that would try to change the spin or cause stress at the axis.
The remaining, active spring quickly compressed, yielding a hard-stop and transferring a great deal of eccentric force into the hanger-hanger connection, producing dynamic excitation, unforeseen 3D motions, misalignment, and load amplification.
Introduction: Eccentric exercise leading to delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) occurs when the muscle must generate unaccustomed eccentric force for an increased intensity and/or duration.
The frequency of operation is 12Hz at which speed the eccentric force generated is 350N and a flywheel keeps speed fluctuations to within 1 percent of the steady rotation speed.
Although the letters provoked no known replies (or legal action), they succeeded in bringing Satie out of obscurity and in establishing him as an independent, if eccentric force to be reckoned with.
