Any one of a number of methods of measuring creep, for example, by subjecting a material to a constant stress or deforming it at a constant rate.

Related Terms

ABRASION RESISTANCE

The ability of a material to resist surface wear.

DIELECTRIC STRENGTH

A measure of the ability of an insulating material to withstand electric stress (voltage) without failure. Fluids with high dielectric strength (usually expressed in volts or kilovolts) are good electrical insulators. (ASTM Designation D 877.)

ABSORPTION

The assimilation of one material into another; in petroleum refining, the use of an absorptive liquid to selectively remove components from a process stream.

CARBON RESIDUE

Coked material remaining after an oil has been exposed to high temperatures under controlled conditions.

CONTAMINATION CONTROL

A broad subject which applies to all types of material systems (including both biological and engineering). It is concerned with planning, organizing, managing, and implementing all activities required to determine, achieve and maintain a specified contamination level.

HARMONIC MOTION

The projection of circular motion on a diameter of the circle of such motion. Simple harmonic motion is produced if the circular motion is of constant speed. The combination of two or more simple harmonic motions results in compound harmonic motion.

DUNNAGE

Cushioning material placed among cargo to prevent their motion

BASE

A material which neutralizes acids. An oil additive containing colloidally dispersed metal carbonate, used to reduce corrosive wear.

ENVIRONMENTAL CONTAMINANT

All material and energy present in and around an operating system, such as dust, air moisture, chemicals, and thermal energy.

BUILT-IN-DIRT

Material passed into the effluent stream composed of foreign materials incorporated into the filter medium.
