Position of the piston of an engine with respect to crank angle

A piston is the moving component that is contained by a cylinder and is made gas-tight by piston rings. In an engine, its purpose is to transfer force from ... more

Coefficient Of Performance for a perfectly reversible cooler

Pulse tube cryocooler(or refrigerator) can be made without moving parts in the low temperature part of the device, making the cooler suitable for a wide ... more

Chladni's Law

Chladni’s law, named after Ernst Chladni, relates the frequency of modes of vibration for flat circular surfaces with fixed center as a function of ... more

Pressure distribution on a Contact Area between a rigid cylinder and an elastic half-space

Contact mechanics is the study of the deformation of solids that touch each other at one or more points. Hertzian contact stress refers to the localized ... more

Radius of the turn of an upright bike (for small steering angles)

In order for a bike to turn, that is, change its direction of forward travel, the front wheel must aim approximately in the desired direction, as with any ... more

Steadily rotating crank ( displacement of the end of the connecting rod )

A crank is an arm attached at right angles to a rotating shaft by which reciprocating motion is imparted to or received from the shaft. It is used to ... more

Mechanical Advantage - Differential Pulley

Mechanical advantage is a measure of the force amplification achieved by using a tool, mechanical device or machine system. Ideally, the device preserves ... more

Spirograph (X-coordinate of the traiectory of the pen-hole in the inner disk of a Spirograph)

Spirograph is a geometric drawing toy that produces mathematical roulette curves as hypotrochoids and epitrochoids. A fixed outer circle of radius R is ... more

Spirograph (Y-coordinate of the traiectory of the pen-hole in the inner disk of a Spirograph)
