Compression ratio

The compression ratio of an internal-combustion engine or external combustion engine is a value that represents the ratio of the volume of its combustion ... more

Q factor for a series resonant circuit (RC circuits)

It is defined as the peak energy stored in the circuit divided by the average energy dissipated in it per cycle at resonance; Q factor is directly ... more

Thermal resistance due to fouling deposits

Often during their use, heat exchangers collect a layer of fouling on the surface which, in addition to potentially contaminating a stream, reduces the ... more

Pre-ignition cylinder pressure of an engine
