The gravitational work of breathing was determined by measuring the vertical motion of body mass. The subject, seated or lying supine on a force platform, performed breathing maneuvers in which rib cage volume (Vrc) and abdominal volume (Vab) were changed in varying proportions. The increment in the vertical force exerted on the platform and Vrc and Vab(More)
Fibers cannot carry compression, and reinforcing fibers in a cylinder can only carry load if they are kept taut by the deformations of the cylinder. In the present study it is found that in pure bending, deformations that change the pitch, i.e., the angle between the fibers and the cross-sectional plane, towards 30 deg will slacken the fibers.
