Transverse wave velocity (shear wave)

A transverse (shear) wave is a moving wave that consists of oscillations occurring perpendicular (or right angled) to the direction of energy transfer. For ... more

Stress (mechanical)

Stress is a physical quantity that expresses the internal forces that neighboring particles of a continuous material exert on each other. Any strain ... 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

Simplified von Mises equation - General - No restrictions

The von Mises yield criterion suggests that the yielding of materials begins when the second deviatoric stress invariant reaches a critical value. For ... 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

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

Blood pressure ( related to the wall tension of artery or vein)

Blood pressure is related to the wall tension of the artery or vein, according to the Young–Laplace equation (assuming that the thickness of the vessel ... more

Ball Screw - Buckling Load

A ball screw is a mechanical linear actuator that translates rotational motion to linear motion with little friction. A threaded shaft provides a helical ... more

Factor of safety

Factor of safety (FoS) or (FS), is a term describing the structural capacity of a system beyond the expected loads or actual loads. Essentially, how much ... more

Maximum octahedral shear stress criterion

The normal and shear components of the stress tensor on octahedral planes are called octahedral normal stress and octahedral shear stress respectively. ... more
