Maximum thermal efficiency of a Diesel cycle

The Diesel cycle is a combustion process of a reciprocating internal combustion engine. In it, fuel is ignited by heat generated by compressing air in the ... more

Magnetic diffusivity

The magnetic diffusivity is a parameter in plasma physics which appears in the magnetic Reynolds number.

Shaft work

Energy transmission with a rotating shaft is very common in engineering practice. Often the torque T applied to the shaft is constant which means that the ... more

Impulse (Time)

Impulse is the product of a force and the time, for which it acts. The impulse of a force acting for a given time interval is equal to the change in linear ... more

Linear damping oscillation

Damped harmonic motion is a real oscillation, in which an object is hanging on a spring. Because of the existence of internal friction and air resistance, ... more

Turbulent Schmidt Number

Schmidt number (Sc) is a dimensionless number. The turbulent Schmidt number describes the ratio between the rates of turbulent transport of momentum and ... more

Relation between the mean of logarithmized sample values and the mean of non-logarithmized sample values

a log-normal (or lognormal) distribution is a continuous probability distribution of a random variable whose logarithm is normally distributed. A random ... more

Stuart Number

The Stuart number (N), also known as magnetic interaction parameter, is a dimensionless number of fluids, i.e. gases or liquids.

It is defined as ... 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

Mixing ratio (mole ratio)

In chemistry and physics, the dimensionless mixing ratio is defined as the abundance of one component of a mixture relative to that of all other ... more
