The ability to resist breaking or permanent deformation during elongation.
The capacity of a muscle to exert a force against a resistance.
(1) The ability of a member to sustain stress without failure. (2) In a specific mode of test, the maximum stress sustained by a member loaded to failure.
A health-related component of physical fitness that relates to the ability of the muscle to exert force.
ability of muscle or group of muscles to overcome force or resistance.
An Attribute, representing the wrestler's brute power and physical force.
The ability of a muscle to produce maximum amount of force.
Amount of force a muscle or muscle group can exert against resistance.
Exercise using weights or other equipment to apply resistance to different movements.
Strength is the ability of a part to resist bending (stiffness) or pulling (tensile strength). Strength is generally a bulk material property. Coatings improve surface properties, not bulk properties. Coatings generally do not make parts stronger.
The ability of a coating film to resist bending and stretching.
the ability to move an external force or to lift a heavy object.
physical energy or intensity; "he hit with all the force he could muster"; "it was destroyed by the strength of the gale"; "a government has not the vitality and forcefulness of a living man"
permanence by virtue of the power to resist stress or force; "they advertised the durability of their products"
Strength of a security is defined as the number of times a security/stock visited a particular price and the amount of accumulation(shares bought) or distribution(shares sold) took place. The more the number of times a stock visits a price, the more stronger is the support/resistance level. Bear in mind, a support line/price becomes a resistance line/price, if the stock moves below it, and vice-versa. Strength(number) calculations for support/resistance on our website has the following meaning. Strength 3 = Very strong support/resistance level. Chances are that if it is broken, the stock would move pretty fast in the respective direction. Since this is the most sought after level by bulls and bears, for support and resistance respectively. Strength 2.75 = Slightly strong support/resistance level. Chances are that if it is broken, the stock may move fast in the respective direction. This support level/price is not as strong as the one with strength 3. Strength 2.5 = being strong, Strength 2 being weak and Strength 1 being very weak support/resistance level.
The body's ability to overcome a force in order to move an object.
the application of force in any activity or exertion.
(of rocks) is the stress at which rupture occurs or plastic deformation begins.
The ability to apply a force for a given distance; the ability to move a given amount of weight for a given distance; Strength = Force x Distance.
the amount of stress an object can receive before it breaks. (see: stress)
A very general term that may be applied to a material or a structure. In a material, strength refers to a level of stress at which there is a significant change in the state of the material, e.g., yielding or rupture. In a structure, strength refers to a level of level of loading which produces a significant change in the state of the structure, e.g., inelastic deformations, buckling, or collapse.
that property of a material concerned with how difficult it is to break. A strong material requires a large force to break it.
A textile or yarn's ability to withstand stress without breaking. Top page Textile Natural and synthetic fibers or yarns that are spun or woven into cloth. Textiles can be woven or unwoven.
The ability of a substance to withstand breakage under force.
The ability to produce tension in muscle fibers. Usually measured by how much weight you can lift or prevent from falling towards the center of the earth. (See also POWER)
a material property: a strong material can resist the forces of compression, tension, torsion or shear without breaking
The amount of force a muscle can exert.
a measure of the ability of a material to support a load.
Most often used to describe the durability of a rod or blank. The ability to withstand impact or stress.
Ability of paper or board to withstand mechanical stress
Steel's ability to resist applied forces.
The ability of a material to withstand an applied force.
The ability of stainless steel to oppose applied forces when considering resistance to stretching, forming, compressing, etc.
prices : firmness or steadiness fibre : power of the fibre to sustain the application of force (as applied in spinning) without breaking.
the mechanical properties of a plastic such as a load or weight-carrying ability to withstand sharp blows. Strength Properties include tensile, flexural, and tear strength, toughness, and flexibility, etc.
force a muscle(s) produces against a resistance
Force generating capacity of muscles.
For a classifier system, a classifier's relative ability to win a bidding match for the right to post its message on the message list.
The measure of the stress required to deform or break a material.
The ability to withstand stress without breaking. Stress is defined by Tensile Force (stretching), Compressive Force (crushing), Shear Force (sliding) and Torsional Force (twisting).
resists strain and wear.
1. The power to resist strain or stress. 2. The state of being strong and having force, power, etc. 3. The ability of a structural member to bear the weight load place upon it without breaking or bending.
Resistance to failure by yielding or buckling.
The term in its broader sense includes all the properties of wood that enable it to resist different forces or loads. The strength of an individual piece will change according to the direction in which a load is applied--a board, for example, is strongest along the grain (axially) but when subjected to bending is strongest perpendicular to the grain (transversely).
