Definition Of elongation
the lengthening of something.
Thus, the mechanical response in the adhesion geometry can be only partially estimated since adhesion induces strong elongations in the adhesive material.
Example Of elongation
Actone offers excellent flexibility, kink resistance, and torqueability as well as good pushability, a higher break load, and lower elongation .
All structural metals have approximately the same ductility as measured by percentage elongation .
Also ductility, as measured by percentage elongation , decreases.
an elongation of the crater in the impact direction
Another metabolite-specific effect seen in this work was hypocotyl thickening and elongation .
