## Estimating the deflection of a truncated cone using Python

In this post, we will complete a problem that might come up in a Strength of Materials class. We'll estimate the deflection of a truncated cone given an applied load using Python.

In this post, we'll use data from a tensile test to build a stress strain curve with Python and Matplotlib.

In the previous post, we calculated the area under the standard normal curve using Python and the `erf()`

function from the `math`

module in Python's Standard Library. In this post, we will construct a plot that illustrates the standard normal curve and the area we calculated. To build the Gaussian …

Calculating the probability under a normal curve is useful for engineers. This type of calculation can be helpful to predict the likely hood of a part coming off an assembly line being within a given specification. The probability can be calculated when the statistical properties of all the parts that …
