Variables with clasps

By Dr.Swathi Pai on Saturday 17 January 2009 with 0 comments



Flexibility: varies inversely in a cube ratio with the thickness of a metal. Flexibility also varies inversely with the width of the metal.


Length: an increase in length = a cube ratio increase in flexibility


Bend: the more the clasp is bent, the less flexible it is.


Taper: the more the taper = the more the flexibility.
