Abstract

An object subjected to an external force will move in the direction of the applied force. The object will deform if its motion is constrained in the direction of the applied force. Deformation implies relative displacement of any two points within the object. The extent of deformation will be dependent upon many factors including the magnitude, direction, and duration of the applied force, the material properties of the object, the geometry of the object, and environmental factors such as heat and humidity.
