mechanical device
An EngineeringComponent in function of which play role mechanical energetical interactions.
Relationships      
Parents engineering component A fundamental concept that applies in many engineering domains. An EngineeringComponent is an element of a Device that is a physically whole object, such as one might see listed as standard parts in a catalog. The main difference betweeen EngineeringComponents and arbitrary globs of matter is that EngineeringComponents are object-like in a modeling sense. Thus, an EngineeringComponent is not an arbtrary subregion, but a part of a system with a stable identity.
Children damperA Device designed to lessen or to remove a Tremor from a PhysicalSystem. Examples include a car's air shocks, or rubber and fluid-filled foundation mounts for buildings in earthquake-prone areas.
 faucetA Tube with a Valve meant to control flow of a Fluid. This is differentiated from other combinations of values and pipes in that the valve is meant to control the exit of fluid from the pipe at a site close to that of the valve control. It is also a typicalPart of the fixtures in a Bathroom or Kitchen.
 fluid cylinderA FluidPowerDevice designed to transform fluid-power energy into mechanical translatory energy.
 geara toothed wheel that engages another toothed mechanism in order to change the speed or direction of transmitted motion.
 gearboxA device composed of several gear-trains used to change speed and torque of transmitted motion.
 gear traina pair of gears that are used to change speed or direction of an angular motion, ideal gear train can be modeled using a transformer.
 motorAn actuator intended to deliver mechanical power
 pendulumA MechanicalDevice of an object mounted so that it swings freely under the influence of gravity.
 rotorThe Rotating component of a motor, generator or similar Device.
 shaftA revolving rod that transmits power or motion.
 springa metal device that returns to its shape or position when pushed or pulled or pressed
 statorStationary part of a motor or generator in or around which the rotor revolves.
 valveA Device that regulates, directs or controls the FlowFn of a Fluid (Gas, Liquid, fluidized solids, or slurries) by opening, closing, or partially obstructing various passageways. (Wikipedia)
