Theoretical hook curve (Eq. (16), thick curves), degradation hook (thin curves) and tongs plot (panel above; Eqs. (20) and (21)) for different degradation levels log d. With increasing degradation the positive and negative amplitudes of the tongs plot (the tongs opening Δγ3′/5′) and the height of the degradation hook increase, accompanied by the shift of its increasing branch towards the left which widens the curves (parameter β). The curves are calculated with γ3′ = −γ5′ = 0.1, 0.3 and 0.5, respectively. The dotted curves in the part above are calculated neglecting the saturation term in Eq. (21). The geometrical meaning of selected parameters is indicated by arrows (see text)
