Rheology

Rheology is used to describe and assess the deformation and flow behavior of materials. Fluids flow at different speeds and solids can be deformed to a certain extent. Oil, honey, shampoo, hand cream, toothpaste, sweet jelly, plastic materials, wood, and metals – depending on their physical behavior, you can put them in order: On the … Leggi tuttoRheology

Statics

Statics is the branch of classical mechanics that is concerned with the analysis of loads (force and torque, or “moment”) acting on bodies (assumed perfectly rigid) or physical systems that do not experience an acceleration (\(a=0\)), but rather, are in static equilibrium with their environment. When in static equilibrium, the acceleration of the system is zero and the system is either at rest or … Leggi tuttoStatics

Dynamics

Dynamics is the branch of classical mechanics that describes the motion of points, bodies (objects), and systems of bodies (groups of objects) considering the masses, energies, forces and torques and their effect on motion, as opposed to kinematics, which studies the motion of objects without reference to its causes.
