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

Parabola is a two-dimensional, mirror-symmetrical curve, which is approximately U-shaped but which can be in any orientation in its plane. A parabola is ... more

A circle can be defined as the curve traced out by a point that moves so that its distance from a given point is constant. In an x–y Cartesian coordinate ... more
