A bolted joint is the joining of two pieces of material using a bolt (or other threaded fastener) and a nut or threaded/tapped hole. It is expected that the bolted joint will be able to withstand the maximum applied forces to the joint over its lifetime.
Choosing the correct rivet length for structural and nonstructural purposes is important for making full use of the material properties of the chosen rivet. Rivets are permanent mechanical fasteners that plastically deform to maintain axial loading on a joint.
Nature’s ability to evolve through natural selection, genetic drift, and other mechanisms has become an inspiration to modern (and historic) design choices. This process of designing based on natures problem solving through evolution has been given the name – biomimicry.
Whether you’re a professional, a student, a DIYer, or simply trying to learn the tools used by professional engineers and scientists, you know the limiting factor is expensive software. Below are the most popular and professionally built open sourced projects and software available as alternatives to engineering software used in the professional world.
Second Law of Thermodynamics: Heat naturally flows from high temperature to low temperature but not the other way around; Disorder, or entropy, generation is always positive in a closed system undergoing an irreversible process.
The pressure-volume diagram (abbreviated as the P-V diagram) is a graphical representation of the changes in pressure with respect to volume in a closed system. P-V diagrams are useful for determining the efficiency of a system and/or the work done by or to a system.
First Law of Thermodynamics: The conservation of energy - energy into a closed system must equal energy out of a closed system. Energy cannot be created or destroyed, but can be changed and transferred.
Zeroth Law of Thermodynamics: If object A is in thermal equilibrium with object B, and object B is in thermal equilibrium with object C, then object C is in thermal equilibrium with object A.
