Influence of the wind on a building

A building is a man-made structure with a roof and walls standing more or less permanently in one place. In general when the wind blows on a building then ... more

Depth of indentation of a Contact Area between two spheres

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

Total constant power (Three-phase electric application)

In electrical engineering, three-phase electric power systems have at least three conductors carrying alternating current voltages that are offset in time ... more

Mechanical Power (Displacement)

Power is the rate at which work is done. It is equivalent to an amount of energy consumed per unit time.
The same amount of work is done when ... more

Lift-to-Drag Ratio

In aerodynamics, the lift-to-drag ratio, or L/D ratio, is the amount of lift generated by a wing or vehicle, divided by the drag it creates by moving ... more
