The static resistance force model has been developed for the different motions in [18-21].
The forces acting along the vertical z-axis are the gravity force G, the vertical static resistance force [F.sub.sv], and the vertical component of the dynamic frictional force [F.sub.d].
The research results using a dilute granular flow condition which is not affected by the static resistance force [36, 38, 40] and the studies at low-speed impact [23,26] shows the quadratic drag force model is better for the dynamic frictional force [F.sub.d] than the linear equation model even at relatively low speed.

Comparing the cyclic and static tests it was found that the cyclic resistance was higher than the static resistance for the 15-mm OSB and particleboard specimens.
But there were points on which members could not agree - among them whether to limit the number of Taser applications allowed on one person and whether Tasers should ever be activated against people who are fleeing from an officer or offering "static resistance," such as holding onto a fixed object.
Characteristics of PVA as a raw material include low linting, flame and static resistance, solvent and chemical resistance, UV resistance and very high strength and in particular with hot water soluble PVA, biodegradation.
Therefore, in spite of a slightly longer fatigue life, the static-to-fatigue ratios of the joints with larger gusset-plates turned out to be higher for both unglued and glued joint assemblies because of their higher static resistance.
