Test

The event of a price movement that approaches a support level or a resistance level established earlier by the market. A test is passed if prices do not go below the support or resistance level, and the test is failed if prices go on to new lows or highs.

test

The attempt by a stock price or a stock market average to break through a support level or a resistance level. For example, a stock that has declined to $20 on several occasions without moving lower may be expected to test this support level once again. Failing to fall below $20 one more time would be considered a successful test of the support level and a bullish sign for the stock.

At the tension test, the constant crosshead rate test and the cyclic load test were conducted.
These results confirm that the tension test setup used in Phase 1 could be improved.
To more reasonably study the mechanical behavior of 6005 Al alloy under the quasistatic and low strain-rate loading condition, tension tests based on four strain rates (from [10.sup.-4] [s.sup.-1] to [10.sup.-1] [s.sup.-1]) are adopted by the Mechanical Testing and Simulation (MTS) 647 hydraulic wedge grip.

The local fracture strains were measured from the uniaxial tension, simple shear, notched type tension, and biaxial tension tests. Measurement errors in these strains can occur depending on the devices employed or on the measurer's skill.
Planar tension test resembles the uniaxial tension test but the sample length is smaller than the width (Figure 4).
This theory has not been substantiated in the literature, however observing the similarity of the position of the follow-through and the upper limb tension test for the radial nerve (see figure 5) suggests a plausible mechanism for assault to the radial nerve.
