static hysteresis

stat·ic hys·ter·e·sis

the difference in the value reached by a dependent variable at a particular constant value of the independent variable, depending on whether the latter value had been approached from above or below; for example, in measuring the pressure volume relations of the lungs, if one completely expires and then inspires to a particular volume and holds it constant, the transpulmonary pressure required to maintain that lung volume is greater than if one had completely inspired and then expired to the same volume and held it constant.

In this paper, the parameters of J-A model are extracted from static hysteresis loop.
Loss separation breaks the total core loss into static hysteresis loss, classical eddy current loss, and excess loss [7].
The continual-pull approach eliminates the introduction of static hysteresis, which distorts the reading (see figure 1 for the definition of static hysteresis).
This method of determining letoff introduces static hysteresis and is referred to as "effective letoff" (again, see figure 2).
It is easy to obtain the peak weight of a bow without static hysteresis, but finding the holding weight without introducing hysteresis (starting the let-down cycle) is difficult on a pulldown type scale.
We can see that this hysteresis effect depends entirely on the direction of movement of the triple line and thus the overall effect is rather similar to the static hysteresis of rubber adhesion in which apparent adhesion is directly related to the direction of motion of the "crack front." The wetting case is perfectly symmetrical in that if [Epsilon] were to take on a negative value, the protuberance shown in figure 4b would become an indentation on the triple line and the directions of motion corresponding to straight and deformed triple lines would be inversed (i.e.
