(deform) make formless; "the heat deformed the plastic sculpture"
(deform) contort: twist and press out of shape
(deform) flex: cause (a plastic object) to assume a crooked or angular form; "bend the rod"; "twist the dough into a braid"; "the strong man could turn an iron bar"
(deform) become misshapen; "The sidewalk deformed during the earthquake"
(deform) alter the shape of (something) by stress; "His body was deformed by leprosy"
(Deformation (mechanics)) Strain, or deformation, is the response of a sample of a solid material to an external or internal stress.
(Deformation (meteorology)) Deformation is the rate of change of shape of fluid bodies. Meteorologically, this quantity is very important in the formation of atmospheric fronts, in the explanation of cloud shapes, and in the diffusion of materials and properties.Djurić, D: "Weather Analysis". ...
(Deform) Shapeless, Disfigure
(deformation) The condition where the director in a liquid crystalline material changes its orientation from one molecule to the next.
(deformation) General term for folding, faulting, and other processes resulting from shear, compression, and extension of rocks.
(DEFORMATION) A stress induced change of form or shape.
(Deformation) When the shape and structure of a pavement is altered.
(Deformation) (French : déformation) Malformation due to an abnormal position of a limb or an abnormal pressure.
(deformation) Also known as deflection. (has a different meaning in fluid mechanics)
(DEFORMATION) (warping) Changing the size or the form of a work piece through heat treatment.
(DEFORMATION) MODULUS OF ICE. The ratio of stress to the relative change in the size of a sample in the direction of the force. This term was introduced to ice science by V.V. ...
(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. ...
(Deformation) A change in the form of a body due to stress, thermal change, change in moisture, or other causes. Measured in units of length.
(Deformation) A special form of 3D transformation which will deform an object's geometry, creating bulges, twists, bends, and more. ...
(Deformation) Any change in the original form or volume of rocks produced by tectonic forces.
(Deformation) The change in shape of a geosynthetic under load, frequently out of the normal plane of the material.
(Deformation) The geological process by which rocks are distorted, shifted and broken. The study of deformation is called structural geology. Common deformation structures include folds and faults.
(Deformation) The maximum momentary displacement of the rear surface of an armor panel, caused by a fair hit that does not penetrate the armor, when the armor is in initial contact with the backing material.
(Deformation) The process of changing the dimensions of a structure by applying a force.
