Tribology and Mechanics of Magnetic Storage Devices

Considering January 1990, while the 1st version ofthis first-of-a-kind e-book seemed, there was a lot experimental and theoretical growth within the multi­ disciplinary topic of tribology and mechanics of magnetic garage units. the topic has matured right into a rigorous self-discipline, and plenty of collage tribology and mechanics classes now often comprise fabric on magnetic garage units.

6 Coupled Fluid-Solid Problems 55 Fig. 27. 28 schematically illustrates the problem situation and the interactions. The key parameters for the flow are the wind velocity and the site topography. The temperature distribution is influenced by the sun radiation, the ambient temperature, as well as by the flow. The structural deformation is affected by the antenna weight, the temperature gradients, and the flow forces. From the deformation of the structure, the pointing error describing the deviation of the axis of the reflector from the optical axis can be determined.

In principle, for structural mechanics problems one distinguishes between linear and non-linear models, where the non-linearity can be of geometrical and/or physical nature. Geometrically linear problems are characterized by the linear strain-displacements relation (see Sect. 25) whereas physically linear problems are based on a material law involving a linear relation between strains and stresses. 4 the different model classes are summarized. 4. 4 Structural Mechanics Problems 27 elasticity, which can be used for many typical engineering applications.
