Tractive Force - Steam locomotives

As used in mechanical engineering, the term tractive force can either refer to the total traction a vehicle exerts on a surface, or the amount of the total ... more

Sherwood Number for a single sphere

The Sherwood number (Sh) is a dimensionless number used in mass-transfer operation. It can be further defined as a function of the Reynolds and Schmidt ... more

Buckingham-Reiner equation (Darcy friction factor for laminar flow)

An exact description of friction loss (Darcy Weisbach equation) for Bingham plastics in fully developed laminar pipe flow was first published by ... more

Buckingham-Reiner equation (Darcy friction factor for turbulent flow)

A dimensionless empirical expression for the turbulent flow friction factor.

Richardson Number - related to Reynolds number

The Richardson number (Ri) is named after Lewis Fry Richardson (1881 – 1953). It is the dimensionless number that expresses the ratio of potential to ... more

Knudsen number (Relationship to Mach and Reynolds numbers in gases)

The Knudsen number (Kn) is a dimensionless number defined as the ratio of the molecular mean free path length to a representative physical length scale. ... more

Darcy friction factor - Colebrook–White equation (relative to the radius)

In fluid dynamics, the Darcy friction factor formulae are equations that allow the calculation of the Darcy friction factor, a dimensionless quantity used ... more

Flywheel (hoop stress on the rotor)

A flywheel is a rotating mechanical device that is used to store rotational energy. Flywheels have a significant moment of inertia and thus resist changes ... more

Tuning fork (cylindrical prongs)

A tuning fork is an acoustic resonator in the form of a two-pronged fork with the prongs (tines) formed from a U-shaped bar of elastic metal (usually ... more

Darby-Melson equation (for Buckingham-Reiner equation)

Although an exact analytical solution of the Buckingham-Reiner equation can be obtained because it is a fourth order polynomial equation in f, due to ... more
