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

A tensile test is a type of mechanical test performed by engineers in order to determine the mechanical properties of a material. Engineering metal alloys such as steel and aluminum …

## Plotting a stress-strain curve with four libraries: matplotlib, pandas, altair and bokeh After watching a great webinar about plotting with different python libraries, I wanted to see what it was like to make a stress strain curve using four different modules: pandas, matplotlib, altair and bokeh (with holoviews).

## Solving a Circuit Diagram Problem with Python and SchemDraw

In this post we will solve a circuit diagram problem using a Python package called SchemDraw ## Diffusion Calculation with Python and Pint

I was working on an engineering problem involving diffusion that involved a couple of different units including joules, grams, kilograms, meters, centimeters, moles, megapascals and weight percent. To make sure that I kept track of all the units and unit conversions throughout the problem, I thought I'd try using pint, a Python package for unit conversions.

## Unit conversions with Python and Pint

Units and unit conversions are BIG in engineering. Engineers solve the world's problems in teams. Any problem that is solved has to have a context that it is solved in. How heavy can a rocket be and still make it off the ground? What thickness body panels should be used to keep occupants save during a crash? In engineering, a number without a unit is like a fish without water. It just flops around hopelessly without context and is useless. How can we get help using units? Programming is one way. In this post, we are going to use Python and Pint, a python package used for unit conversions, to do a couple of sample unit conversion problems.
