Approximately one third of polyps and one half of colorectal cancers occur proximal to the splenic flexure .
Along with characterizing a plastic's bending properties, flexure can be used to evaluate aging and sterilization effects on a product.
To add to the problem, Barbara had a lengthy, tortuous colon, and - despite turning, twisting, and compressing her - barium and air would not pass proximal to the hepatic flexure .
Tumors or polyps that develop proximal to the splenic flexure carry a poorer prognosis than those that arise more distally.
The basin is separated from the craton by a major tectonic flexure known as the Redstone arch.
Polymer modification is said to give the product tensile, flexural , and compressive strength that is well above normal concrete (up to 50% stronger, depending on thickness).
The brick veneer wall is reported to have very low bond values and there is not a reliable source of flexural resistance, to resist lateral wind pressure.
Rather than mix its own concrete, the contractor bought ready-mixed concrete designed to achieve 2500-psi compressive strength and 800-psi flexural strength in 24 hours.
In crawling infants the forearms, extensor aspects of the knees, and the ankle flexures are often the most affected.
The eigenvalues of the first bending and twisting modes of a structure are directly related to the flexural and torsional stiffness, respectively.
