advancement of science. Subsequently this was developed into the modern physics of solitons . In 1871, Boussinesq published the first mathematical theory to support Russell's experimental observation. In 1876, Lord Rayleigh published his mathematical theory to support Russell's experimental

Soliton print that page


In mathematics and physics , a soliton is a self-reinforcing solitary wave (a wave packet or pulse) that maintains its shape while it travels at constant speed. Solitons are caused by a cancellation of nonlinear and dispersive effects in the medium. (The term "dispersive effects" refers

Boussinesq approximation (buoyancy) print that page


In fluid dynamics , the Boussinesq approximation (named for Joseph Valentin Boussinesq ) is used in the field of buoyancy-driven flow (also known as natural convection ). It states that density differences are sufficiently small to be neglected, except where they appear in terms multiplied

fundamental nature of contact cite his two papers as a source for some important ideas. Joseph Valentin Boussinesq published some critically important observations on Hertz's work, nevertheless establishing this work on contact mechanics to be of immense importance. His work basically summarises

structures. [ 8 ] The term was coined in 1877 by French mathematician and physicist Joseph Valentin Boussinesq who called these waves ‘le clapotis’ meaning ‘standing waves’. [ 9 ] [ 10 ] In the idealized case of "full clapotis" where a purely monotonic incoming wave is completely

mentioned Scott Russell's name and also admitted that the first theoretical treatment was by Joseph Valentin Boussinesq in 1871. Joseph Boussinesq mentioned Scott Russell's name in his 1871 paper. Thus Scott Russell's observations on solitons were accepted as true by some prominent scientists

Contact mechanics is foundational to the field of mechanical engineering ; it provides necessary information for the safe and energy efficient design of technical systems and for the study of tribology and indentation hardness . Principles of contacts mechanics can be applied in areas such
