Fluid print that page

In physics , a fluid is a substance that continually deforms (flows) under an applied shear stress , no matter how small. Fluids are a subset of the phases of matter and include liquids , gases , plasmas and, to some extent, plastic solids . In common usage, fluid " is often used as | 2011/4/21 1:18:06

FLUID print that page


After designing the application, FLUID compiles the .fl file into a .cxx file, which defines all the objects from the .fl file, and an .h file , which declares all the global ones. FLUID also supports localization of label strings using message files and the GNU gettext or POSIX catgets

Cutting fluid print that page


Most metalworking and machining processes can benefit from the use of cutting fluid , depending on workpiece material. A common exception to this is machining cast iron or brass , which are machined dry. The properties that are sought after in a good cutting fluid are the ability to: keep

Brake fluid print that page

set by organizations such as the SAE , or local government equivalents. For example, most brake fluid sold in North America is classified by the US Department of Transportation (DOT) under their own ratings such as " DOT 3 " and " DOT 4 ". Their classifications broadly reflect the concerns | 2011/10/4 1:29:43

Fluid power print that page

A fluid power system with a pump driven by a prime mover such as an electric motor or IC engine that converts mechanical energy into fluid energy. This fluid flow is used to actuate a device specifically designed to operate with fluid energy such as: A Hydraulic cylinder or Pneumatic | 2011/9/27 7:28:00

Fluid mechanics print that page


The study of fluid mechanics goes back at least to the days of ancient Greece , when Archimedes investigated fluid statics and buoyancy and formulated his famous law known now as the Archimedes' Principle . Rapid advancement in fluid mechanics began with Leonardo da Vinci (observation

Supercritical fluid print that page


A supercritical fluid is any substance at a temperature and pressure above its critical point , where distinct liquid and gas phases do not exist. It can effuse through solids like a gas , and dissolve materials like a liquid . In addition, close to the critical point , small changes

Fluid bearing print that page


They can be broadly classified as fluid dynamic bearings or hydrostatic bearings . Hydrostatic bearings are externally pressurized fluid bearings, where the fluid is usually oil, water or air, and the pressurization is done by a pump. Hydrodynamic bearings rely on the high speed of the

Computational fluid dynamics print that page


The fundamental basis of almost all CFD problems are the Navier–Stokes equations , which define any single-phase fluid flow. These equations can be simplified by removing terms describing viscosity to yield the Euler equations . Further simplification, by removing terms describing vorticity

Fluid coupling print that page

A fluid coupling is a hydrodynamic device used to transmit rotating mechanical power. [ 1 ] It has been used in automobile transmissions as an alternative to a mechanical clutch . It also has widespread application in marine and industrial machine drives, where variable speed operation | 2011/7/12 6:10:44
