  Deformation
Enormous stress is imposed on the crust at the boundaries of the lithospheric plates and where convection currents in the mantle tug and tear at the crust above.
The reaction of rock material to an imposed stress depends on the temperature and pressure conditions.
During plastic deformation mineral bonds adjust to the stress by breaking, moving about, and then reforming.

  NationMaster - Encyclopedia: Plastic deformation
In 1934, Egon Orowan, Michael Polanyi and Geoffrey Ingram Taylor, roughly simultaneously, realised that the plastic deformation of ductile materials could be explained in terms of the theory of dislocations.
One of the best-known examples of this is nitinol, which exhibits pseudoelasticity: deformations which are reversible in the context of mechanical design, but irreversible in terms of thermodynamics.
In reality, many materials which undergo large elastic and plastic deformations, such as steel, are able to absorb stresses which would cause brittle materials, such as glass, with minimal elastic and plastic deformation ranges, to break.

 Deformation of Rock
Ductile Deformation -- wherein the strain is irreversible.
Abrupt deformation along faults, usually associated with earthquakes caused by the fracture of rocks occurs on a time scale of minutes or seconds.
Gradual deformation along faults or in areas of uplift or subsidence can be measured over periods of months to years with sensitive measuring instruments.

 Deformation bands
Deformation band faults are solely the result of a displacement gradient (over a narrow tabular zone), in contrast to faults with slip surface which must include a displacement discontinuity.
The zones of deformation band faults are thought to grow by addition of new deformation band faults, side by side, thus the thickness of the zone depends on the number and spacing of individual deformation band faults.
The shifting of deformation is thought to be due to strain hardening via increased grain friction in the bands during grain breaking and porosity reduction processes.

Inference of postseismic deformation mechanisms of the 1923 Kanto earthquake
Postseismic deformation after the 1923 earthquake, however, is relatively poorly understood.
We revisit the available deformation data in order to constrain possible mechanisms of postseismic deformation and to examine the consequences for associated stress changes in the surrounding crust.

 Reference.com/Encyclopedia/Deformation
In engineering mechanics, deformation is a change in shape due to an applied force.
Deformation is often described in terms of strain.
Deformation may be temporary, as a spring returns to its original length when tension is removed, or permanent as when an object is irreversibly bent or broken.

 Autogenous Deformation   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Typically, autogenous deformation was measured simultaneously on two nominally identical specimens and the average result was reported.
The results reported in all plots are always relative to a deformation of zero at the time of set for the cement paste being evaluated.
After setting was achieved, the maximum standard deviation in relative deformation between readings made on companion specimens was 48.13 microstrains, with average standard deviations being in the range of 6.4 microstrains to 30 microstrains.

 Cranial Deformation
Deformation can either be intentional or unintentional, however this is difficult to determine from the skeletal record.  Intentional deformation is the result of attaching boards, pads, bandages, or stones to an infant skull (see Figs.
Unintentional deformation may be due to nutritional, hormonal, or genetic factors.  Preferred sleeping posture may also result in unintentional modification (Dingwall, 1931; Rhode and Arriaza, 2006).  Some individuals hypothesize that deformation first occurred as an unintentional result of the cradleboard and then became a method for intentional modification (Gerszten and Gerszten, 1995).

 U of MD load deformation results
The repeated load permanent deformation tests were all performed at a test temperature of 100 degrees F with three levels of loading stress: 10 psi, 20 psi, and 30 psi (deviatoric stress at unconfined state).
Both the graphical and the tabular results for the repeated load permanent deformation tests are shown in Appendix G [omitted*] for all six mixes.
During testing, it was observed that at the end of the repeated load permanent deformation test, the deformation of the samples visually (and quite graphically) demonstrated the efficiency of the Elvaloy® modifier, as well as the influence of increased modifier percentage.

 Create clusters with properties for deformation
An AXIS deformation is the simplest of the deformations to use.
Deformation of the object varies depending on the position of the CURVE frame in relation to the object at the time it is attached.
For example, bending around a joint provides smooth deformation of arm geometry at an elbow (complete with bending and tucking), and bulging between two joints simulates the biceps as it flexes and influxes due to arm bending.

 Surface Edit > Global Deformation
For example, the deformation of the following plane is very different when the deformation region is scaled horizontally beyond the edges of the plane.
You may want to adjust this value based on the amount of memory your computer has (for example, set it to 2 if your computer has very little memory, or set it to 25 if your computer has a large amount of memory.) The default value is 10.
That is, select the surfaces you want to deform and any nearby surfaces that you want to remain continuous after the deformation.

 Deformation Band - Meteorological Physical Background
is the total deformation, D is the horizontal wind divergence and b the angle between the axis of dilatation and the isentropes.
The Deformation Bands occur within cyclonic vorticity; in most of the cases investigated it could be found that when there is a maximum in the total deformation field, it often coincides with the respective maximum in the positive vorticity field.
Deformation Band cloudiness initially may also appear close to a jet (in the confluent flow zone), but it is often found near very slack upper level wind zones (for example, at a col, where the wind speed is basically zero).

 Fusion of 3D shapes and deformation tools (Philippe Decaudin)
Deformation techniques are often used to model the shape of geometric objects.
In order to deform the object, the 3D-space where it lies is continuously deformed so that the object is bumped and the shape of the bump corresponds to the simple 3D-shape.
Moreover, topological properties of the object are unchanged, and the volume variation of the deformed object is controlled by the volume delimited by the simple shape.

 Cell induced mirror deformation
Then, in the first case, the deformation must be calculated as caused by the mirror standing on its edge supports or sling.
Figure 3 shows the deformation when the mirror in a cell as shown in Figure 1A is pointed to the horizon.
However, since the deformation is mostly astigmatic it cannot be compensated by refocusing, and the deformation may therefore be considered as very bad.
