Contact mechanics is the study of the deformation of solids that touch each other at one or more points. When an elastic sphere indents an elastic ... more

In classical geometry, a radius of a circle or sphere is any of the line segments from its center to its perimeter, and in more modern usage, it is also ... more

In spherical trigonometry, the law of cosines (also called the cosine rule for sides) is a theorem relating the sides and angles of spherical triangles, ... more

The volume of the spherical dome, which is a portion of a sphere cut off by a plane, can be calculated by the radius of the base of the dome and the ... more

Capacitance is the ability of a body to store an electrical charge. Any object that can be electrically charged exhibits capacitance. Concentric or ... more

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

The Biot number (Bi) is a dimensionless quantity used in heat transfer calculations. Gives a simple index of the ratio of the heat transfer resistances ... more

Sphericity is a measure of how spherical (round) an object is. The sphericity of a sphere is 1 and, by the isoperimetric inequality, any particle which is ... more
