The extent to which a body is distorted when it is subjected to a deforming force, as when under stress. The distortion can involve a change both in shape and in size. All measures of strain are dimensionless (they have no unit of measure). &diamf3; Axial strain is equal to the ratio between the change in length of an object and its original length. &diamf3; Volume strain is equal to the ratio between the change in volume of an object and its original volume. It is also called bulk strain. &diamf3; Shear strain is equal to the ratio between the amount by which an object is skewed and its length.

  2. To pass through a screen, sieve, filter, etc.; filter
  3. To filter, ooze, or trickle
A device that allows signals with certain properties, such as signals lying in a certain frequency range, to pass while blocking the passage of others. For example, filters on photographic lenses allow only certain frequencies of light to enter the camera, while polarizing filters allow only light polarized along a given plane to pass. Radio tuners are filters that allow frequencies of only a narrow range to pass into an amplification circuit.
