4> varies with sftell and joint stiffness from 0.33 to 0.38 knuckle radius. <

1) Formula of proper form to fit circle and infinite rectangle as n varies from 1 to 10.

2) Formulas for load distributed over 0.0001 plate area to match circle when n = 1. They give reasonable values for stress when n = 0. Stress is lower for larger area subject to load.

3) Formulas of empirical form to fit Hutte values for square when n = 1. They give reasonable values when n = 0. Assume load on 0.01 of area.

4) Only apparent stresses considered.

5) These formulas are not to be used in determining failure.

Renewable Energy 101

Renewable energy is energy that is generated from sunlight, rain, tides, geothermal heat and wind. These sources are naturally and constantly replenished, which is why they are deemed as renewable. The usage of renewable energy sources is very important when considering the sustainability of the existing energy usage of the world. While there is currently an abundance of non-renewable energy sources, such as nuclear fuels, these energy sources are depleting. In addition to being a non-renewable supply, the non-renewable energy sources release emissions into the air, which has an adverse effect on the environment.
