What is motion and what is energy? These fundamental questions are difficult to answer. The first attempt to give some explanations was made through classical mechanics. Here you will find a collection of articles with everything you need to know about the physical laws of motion and energy.
Features and capabilities are equally important, if not more so, than the price for buying CAD software. Even given that, chances are you may find a free program through this guide that is capable enough for your application. This guide will help you to understand the current offerings.
Air conditioners are not just about the on/off button and remote control. For an engineer, they mean a lot more: they are machines that must be understood to achieve efficient performance.
The Pacific Theater of the Second World War involved some of the largest and most costly naval battles and amphibious assaults in all of human history. Here is a selection of articles that cover the most significant aspects of the War in the Pacific, from naval design to key battles.
World War II was fought hardest in Europe. Millions of soldiers and civilians died in a bitter conflict lasting from 1939 to 1945. Battles in the air and at sea changed the course of history, and here are some of the most important related battles, equipment, and simulations from and about WW II.
Marine fuels and fuel handling are a common part of a ship’s engineers routine from taking on bunkers to ensuring the fuel is kept at optimum temperature, and as free from contaminates as possible, for use in the main engines or boilers.
All ships have a unique silhouette and this characteristic is often the best means of telling one type of ship from another. Here are some ship silhouettes that are representative of their type, as well as some pointers on how to tell ships apart. At sea such quick identification can be a big aid.
One of the most fundamental science fields that has contributed to the evolution of engines since the early 19th century, thermodynamics has seriously affected our lives. In this guide we’ll start with the basics and move on to the more complicated principles and applications.
The invention of the diesel engine in 1893 has been attributed to Rudolf Diesel, a German mechanical engineer and inventor. This was an innovative internal combustion engine that was the fore-runner of today’s marine diesel engines used in ships worldwide.
Studying the behavior of earth materials is a vast subject that includes the study of soil properties, foundations, slopes, risk mitigation, and ground improvement methods. The following topics will guide you through much of the terminology and theory of geotechnical engineering and soil mechanics.
Calculations for heat exchanger designs use heat transfer parameters such as convection heat transfer coefficients, overall heat transfer coefficients, and log mean temperature differences. These calculations are needed for shell and tube and double pipe heat exchangers, as well as other types.
The widespread applications of fluid mechanics and hydraulics in civil engineering include transportation of fluids in pipes and in open channels, as well as flow measurement for both pipes and open channels. These areas of application use a variety of calculations for design and for analysis.
