• Applied mechanics
Applied mechanics is a branch of the physical sciences and the practical application of mechanics.
• Wedge (mechanical device)
A wedge is a triangular shaped tool, and is a portable inclined plane, and one of the six classical simple machines.
• Mechatronics
Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field of science that includes a combination of mechanical engineering, electronics, computer engineering, telecommunications engineering, systems engineering and control engineering.
• Truss
In engineering, a truss is a structure that "consists of two-force members only, where the members are organized so that the assemblage as a whole behaves as a single object".
• Mechanical filter
A mechanical filter is a signal processing filter usually used in place of an electronic filter at radio frequencies.
• Six degrees of freedom
Six degrees of freedom (6DoF) refers to the freedom of movement of a rigid body in three-dimensional space.
• Potential well
A potential well is the region surrounding a local minimum of potential energy.
• Pulley
A pulley is a wheel on an axle or shaft that is designed to support movement and change of direction of a taught cable, rope or belt along its circumference.
• Photoelasticity
Photoelasticity is a method to determine the stress distribution in a material experimentally.
• Newton's laws of motion
Newton's laws of motion are three physical laws that, together, laid the foundation for classical mechanics.
• Buckling
In science, buckling is a mathematical instability, leading to a failure mode.
• Circle-throw vibrating machine
A circle-throw vibrating machine is a screening machine employed in processes involving particle separation.
• Centripetal force
A centripetal force (from Latin centrum, "center" and petere, "to seek") is a force that makes a body follow a curved path.
• Centrifugal force
In Newtonian mechanics, the centrifugal force is an inertial force (also called a 'fictitious' or 'pseudo' force) directed away from the axis of rotation that appears to act on all objects when viewed in a rotating reference frame.
• Factor of safety
Factors of safety (FoS), also known as (and used interchangeably with) safety factor (SF),, is a term describing the load carrying capacity of a system beyond the expected or actual loads.
• Momentum
(This article is about momentum in physics. For other uses, see Momentum (disambiguation).) In classical mechanics, linear momentum, translational momentum, or simply momentum (pl. momenta; SI unit kg · m/s) is the product of the mass and velocity of an object, quantified in kilogram-meters per second.
• DBrn
The symbol dBrn or dB(rn) is an abbreviation for decibels above reference noise.
• Innermost stable circular orbit
The Innermost stable circular orbit (often called the ISCO) is the smallest orbit in which a test particle can stably orbit a massive object in general relativity.
• Kinetic diagram
In dynamics a kinetic diagram is a pictorial device used in analyzing mechanics problems when there is determined to be a net force and/or moment acting on a body.
• Mechanics of planar particle motion
This article describes a particle in planar motion when observed from non-inertial reference frames.
• Parallel axis theorem
In physics, the parallel axis theorem, also known as Huygens–Steiner theorem, or just as Steiner's theorem, after Christiaan Huygens and Jakob Steiner, can be used to determine the mass moment of inertia or the second moment of area of a rigid body about any axis, given the body's moment of inertia about a parallel axis through the object's center of gravity and the perpendicular distance between the axes.
• Fracture
A fracture is the separation of an object or material into two or more pieces under the action of stress.
