**compressive**strength of cement mortar.On examining the diagram it will be observed that the maximum

**compressive**stresses are parallel to and near to the down stream face of the section, which values are approximately equal to the maximum value of the vertical stress determined by the law of uniformly varying stress divided by the cosine squared of the angle between the vertical and the resultant.AdvertisementThe vertical distance above the line ab of any point in the dotted line dc is proportional to the vertical component of the

**compressive**stress on the line ale assumed to vary uniformly from face to face, and similarly the vertical distance of any point in the3-dot-and-dash line ae above the line ab is proportional to the vertical component of the stress determined experimentally.In fact, most of these films have internal stresses that are highly

**compressive**(tending to contract ).Here the crack continues to propagate, although the stresses in the rod become

**compressive**strength with increasing fiber misalignment is predicted.Electroplating steel spokes puts a

**compressive**stress into their surface, dangerously shortening their fatigue life.The Cambridge group has identified fiber waviness and matrix shear yield as the underlying reason for low

**compressive**strength.The loadings covered are either uniaxial in-plane compression alone or with a transverse in-plane tensile or

**compressive**load.AdvertisementThe maximum

**compressive**working stress on the concrete may be 500 lb per sq.There are many structures at present in existence bearing considerably greater loads than this, and the granite ashlar masonry of at least one, the Bear Valley dam in California, is subject to

**compressive**deformation, one in early Palaeozoic, the other about the close of Palaeozoic time, and both undoubtedly of long duration; the second one extended its effects farther northwest than the first.
