Limit

1. The maximum amount of price change a futures contract is allowed to undergo on a given trading day. Limits are mandated by the exchanges on which futures contracts trade, and exist in order to reduce volatility in the market. It is also called a trading limit.

2. The maximum number of transactions in commodities that an individual may make on an exchange on a given trading day. Limits are mandated either by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission or by the exchanges on which commodity contracts trade. It is also called a trading limit.

3. See: Limit order.

Investigators were most interested in the acoustic velocity response within wood that had been loaded into the range over and above the proportional limit.
Similar to the bark specimens, meaningful values for maximum crushing strength could not be determined for the wood specimens tested in the radial direction because of continuous densification as the stress increased beyond the proportional limit.
Close to the proportional limit, the sample starts to move laterally and to embed in the lower anisotropic strength direction.
From the [sigma]-[epsilon] relation, Young's modulus, proportional limit stress, and compressive strength were determined by the following procedure.
They cannot determine the shear stress/shear strain behavior including the shear modulus and shear stress at the proportional limit.
This limitation may similarly apply to the proportional limit stress and bending strength obtained under the standardized span/depth ratio range.
The objective of the current study is to expand the knowledge base for this subject by exploring the influence of end distance on the tensile behavior (specifically stiffness, proportional limit, yield load, and ultimate load) of mortise-and-tenon wood pegged joints using three commonly used species: eastern white pine, Douglas-fir, and red oak.
2) Based on the combination of percentage changes in elastic modulus and stress at the proportional limit, the specimens from locations Left C 30 and Right C 30 were concluded to contain incipient decay.
