Deformation

Change in the surface profile of wearing course due to high stress of traffic or high temperatures.

deformation

(Learning Modules / Mathematics / Beam calculations) Different from the original shape. A pencil can be bent (laterally deformed). A spring can be linearly deformed (compressed).

Deformation

Deformation: A change from the normal size or shape of an anatomic structure due to mechanical forces that distort an otherwise normal structure. Deformations occur most often late in pregnancy or during delivery. A twin pregnancy can cause deformations due to crowding of the twins late in pregnancy. A well-known example of a deformation is molding...

Deformation

[mechanics] Deformation in continuum mechanics is the transformation of a body from a reference configuration to a current configuration. A configuration is a set containing the positions of all particles of the body. A deformation may be caused by external loads, body forces (such as gravity or electromagnetic forces), or changes in temper...
