An agitator is a device or mechanism to put something into motion by shaking or stirring.
An army (from Latin arma "arms, weapons" via Old French armée, "armed" (feminine)) or land force is a fighting force that fights primarily on land.
An axial fan is a type of fan that causes gas to flow through it in an axial direction, parallel to the shaft about which the blades rotate.
An axial-flow pump, or AFP, is a common type of pump that essentially consists of a propeller (an axial impeller) in a pipe.
Centrifugal compressors, sometimes termed radial compressors, are a sub-class of dynamic axisymmetric work-absorbing turbomachinery.
A centrifugal fan is a mechanical device for moving air or other gases.
Centrifugal pumps are a sub-class of dynamic axisymmetric work-absorbing turbomachinery.
The Commonwealth of Nations, often known as simply the Commonwealth, is an intergovernmental organisation of 53 member states that are mostly former territories of the British Empire.
In physics, energy is the quantitative property that must be transferred to an object in order to perform work on, or to heat, the object.
An engine or motor is a machine designed to convert one form of energy into mechanical energy.
Epaulette (also spelled epaulet) is a type of ornamental shoulder piece or decoration used as insignia of rank by armed forces and other organizations.
Firefighting is the act of attempting to prevent the spread of and extinguish significant unwanted fires in buildings, vehicles, woodlands, etc.
In physics, a fluid is a substance that continually deforms (flows) under an applied shear stress.
In mathematics, the gradient is a multi-variable generalization of the derivative.
In the physical sciences, an interface is the boundary between two spatial regions occupied by different matter, or by matter in different physical states.
A jet engine is a type of reaction engine discharging a fast-moving jet that generates thrust by jet propulsion.
In mechanical engineering, a key is a machine element used to connect a rotating machine element to a shaft.
A police force is a constituted body of persons empowered by a state to enforce the law, to protect people and property, and to prevent crime and civil disorder.
A propeller is a type of fan that transmits power by converting rotational motion into thrust.
A view of pump-jets operating ''Discovery'' jet ski pump jet Rear view of pump-jet on a Mark 50 torpedo A pump-jet, hydrojet, or water jet is a marine system that creates a jet of water for propulsion.
The Roots type blower is a positive displacement lobe pump which operates by pumping a fluid with a pair of meshing lobes not unlike a set of stretched gears.
Sand is a naturally occurring granular material composed of finely divided rock and mineral particles.
A shear stress, often denoted by (Greek: tau), is the component of stress coplanar with a material cross section.
Splines are ridges or teeth on a drive shaft that mesh with grooves in a mating piece and transfer torque to it, maintaining the angular correspondence between them.
A turbine (from the Latin turbo, a vortex, related to the Greek τύρβη, tyrbē, meaning "turbulence") is a rotary mechanical device that extracts energy from a fluid flow and converts it into useful work.
The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, commonly known as the United Kingdom (UK) or Britain,Usage is mixed with some organisations, including the and preferring to use Britain as shorthand for Great Britain is a sovereign country in western Europe.
A ventricular assist device (VAD) is an electromechanical device for assisting cardiac circulation, which is used either to partially or to completely replace the function of a failing heart.
The Venturi effect is the reduction in fluid pressure that results when a fluid flows through a constricted section (or choke) of a pipe.
In physics and engineering, in particular fluid dynamics and hydrometry, the volumetric flow rate (also known as volume flow rate, rate of fluid flow or volume velocity) is the volume of fluid which passes per unit time; usually represented by the symbol (sometimes). The SI unit is m3/s (cubic metres per second).
A washing machine (laundry machine, clothes washer, or washer) is a device used to wash laundry.
