Examples of Brittle Materials

Brittle materials break with little or no elongation prior to failure. In this article, you’ll receive examples of brittle materials, learn about fracture type, and determine how to reduce the…

Do Electric Cars Have Gears?

Electric cars generally do not have gears as they don’t have multi-speed transmissions. Electric vehicles receive power via an electric motor. The electric motor produces a consistent amount of torque…

Damping Ratio

In many engineering applications, damping ratio provides an important dimensionless parameter that describes the decay of oscillations in a system. From a system’s equilibrium, external disturbances may cause displacements in…
