Physical pendulum

Hello,

I want to calculate the force of a physical pendulum with the 1.09Kg mass which is released from 91° angle and hits an object. I have set mgh=1/2mv^2 then W=1/2mv^2  (W=F*X) where x is the circel sector the pendulum travels from 91° to 0° , the pendulum hits the object at 0°, is the formula below correct to calculate the the force that hits the object?

F=(1/2mv^2)/x ??

Best regards

Ali

Abaqus CFD

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Hello,

I have a 6mm straight tube which is pressureized to 8bar dry air, then the pressure is 

released to 2 bar and the time is measured. (pressure drop duration)

I wonder if this problem is possible to analyize in Abaqus CFD?

In abaqus CFD i can assign 8 bar pressure at one end of the tube and 2 bar at

the other end but then i wonder if Abaqus will adjust the velocity to achieve this 

solution during the specified step time, if this is the case then i will not

be able to get the correct time?

A hydrodynamic analogy to the crack driving force

Students often have a tough time understanding the crack driving force in an elementary course on fracture mechanics.

A recent free access article has been published on a fluid analogy to the crack driving force and the Riabouchinsky free streamline problem for ideal fluid flow around two plates.  Hopefully this analogy can aid in the visualization.

mechanics of composite materials teaching--online homework

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

Just released, 105 homework problems for mechanics of composite materials in Webwork environment. You can choose 105 randomized (each student gets different data) or the same 105 problems but not-randomized to make it easier to teach online (all students work with same data so it is easier to answer questions online). Take a look at this introductory Youtube video.

Work-Energy principle: Doubt regarding zero initial velocity assumption

I have a basic doubt from engineering mechanics. We have the work-energy principle stating that the work done by the forces acting on a partile is equal to the change in kinetic energy of that particle. However, the kinetic energy is a qudratic function of the velocity of the particle, and hence the change in kinetic energy for a given change in the velocity would depend on the initial velocity of the particle, before the work is done by the forces acting on it.

Residual Stress 101: One day course at SEM conference

The day before the SEM Conference this June in Reno, Nevada, USA, we will be teaching a short course entitled Residual Stress 101: https://sem.org/annualprogram. See below for a description of the course. We will cover lots of practical material on residual stresses, much of which is not covered in standard engineering curricula. This is great material for any interested researcher who never got a comprehensive background in residual stress. It will also be great for graduate students or advanced undergrads, and students pay half price.
