5.3.1 General Design Considerations

Basic design for any metamorphic surface includes a consideration of minimum feature size, linear extensibility, volumetric limits, areal expansion limits, and maximum distension speed. Other design considerations include tensile and compressive strength along all likely stress vectors at both minimum and maximum surface extensions, and the resistance of surfaces to cuts and tears.
