What is Stress Concentration – Definition, Causes, effects and Prevention?

Stress concentration is the accumulation of stress in a body due to sudden change in its geometry. When there is a sudden change in the geometry of the body due to cracks, sharp corners, holes and decrease in the cross section area, then there is an increase in the localised stress near these cracks, sharp …

Difference Between Turbocharger and Supercharger

In this article, we will learn about the difference between turbocharger and supercharger. They both are forced induction system i.e. they compress the air from the atmosphere and sends it to the engine cylinder. The compressed air allows a double amount of fuel to enter into the cylinder for combustion. This doubles the power of …
