Critical Buckling Stress of a Column with Buckling Coefficient

Column or pillar in architecture and structural engineering is a structural element that transmits, through compression, the weight of the structure above ... more

Heat Conduction - Energy

Heat conduction (or thermal conduction) is the transfer of internal energy by microscopic diffusion and collisions of particles or quasi-particles within a ... more

Conchoid of de Sluze (Cartesian coordinates)

The conchoid(s) of de Sluze is a family of plane curves. In Cartesian coordinates, the curves satisfy an implicit equation. They are rational, circular, ... more
