In experiments on magnetic strains carried out by H.
Mendel's object was to gain further knowledge as to lsm the result of mixing by cross-fertilization or interbreeding two strains exhibiting diverse characters or structural features.
Processes of annealing, or very gradual cooling, are intended to relieve these strains, but such processes are only completely effective when the cooling, particularly through those ranges of temperature where the glass is just losing the last traces of plasticity, is extremely gradual, a rate measured in hours per degree Centigrade being required.
The existence of internal strains in glass can be readil y recognized by examination in polarized light, any signs of double refraction indicating the existence of strain.
Strains exceeding the "limit of elasticity" result in permanent deformation or (if sufficiently great) in rupture.
In each case all strains are carefully computed.
In 1953, he developed a method to make strains of wheat highly resistant to a single form of rust.
To further enhance yield, at the same time Borlaug bred wheat strains with short, stubby stalks, which were able to better handle more weight of grain.
All he could do was cross strains of wheat, much in the same fashion as Gregor Mendel did in the 1800s.
