Spherical shells: ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC) (UG-27)

The ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code (BPVC) is an American Society of Mechanical Engineers (... more

Spring constant

Hooke’s law is a principle of physics that states that the force F needed to extend or compress a spring by some distance X is proportional to that ... more

Spring work

When a force is applied on a spring, and the length of the spring changes by a differential amount dx, the work done is Fdx. For linear elastic springs, ... more

Static Friction

Static friction is friction between two or more solid objects that are not moving relative to each other. For example, static friction can prevent an ... more

Stiffness of an elastic body with a single degree of freedom

The stiffness of a body is a measure of the resistance offered by an elastic body to deformation. For an elastic body with a single degree of freedom (for ... more

Strain energy release (Irwin's modification for plane strain)

A fracture is the separation of an object or material into two, or more, pieces under the action of stress.There are three ways of applying a force to ... more

Strain energy release (Irwin's modification for plane stress)

A fracture is the separation of an object or material into two, or more, pieces under the action of stress.There are three ways of applying a force to ... more

Stress in thin-walled pressure cylindrical vessels

A pressure vessel is a closed container designed to hold gases or liquids at a pressure substantially different from the ambient pressure. Stress in a ... more

Stress in thin-walled pressure spherical vessels

Pressure vessels are held together against the gas pressure due to tensile forces within the walls of the container. Stress in a shallow-walled pressure ... more

Thrust

Thrust is a reaction force described quantitatively by Newton’s second and third laws. When a system expels or accelerates mass in one direction, the ... more
