Illustration 1B (not drawn to scale)
How the Venturi concept may relate to metal tensile strength


(AT LEFT): smaller nuclei, wider channel, slower flow, weaker "Venturi" effect, less "suction", and often less metal tensile strength.

  (AT MIDDLE): larger nuclei (with their increased cross sectional area), restrict channel width, cause "electric fluid" to flow faster. The resulting Venturi effect can lead to greater "suction" or "attraction", and thus, to greater metal tensile strength. (Incidentally, slightly disordered, not quite in-line nuclei, can cause similar effect, also.)
