COEFFICIENT

CBBlock coefficient  a measure of the fullness of the form of the ship and is the ratio of the volume of displacement to a given waterline, and the volume of the circumscribing solid of constant rectangular crosssection having the same length, breadth and draught as the ship. CB= (L x B x T) The LPP is normally used in calculating the value of CB which varies with the type of ship. Fast ships Ordinary ships Slow ships 0.500.65 (fine form) 0.650.75 (moderate form) 0.750.85 (full form) 
COEFFICIENT OF CUBICAL EXPANSIONThe increment in volume of a unit volume of solid, liquid, or gas for a rise of temperature of 1 at constant pressure. Also known as coefficient of expansion; coefficient of thermal expansion; coefficient of volumetric expansion; expansion coefficient; expansivity. 
COEFFICIENT OF EXPANSIONA number indicating the degree of expansion or contraction of a substance. The coefficient of expansion is not constant and varies with changes in temperature. For linear expansion it is expressed as the change in length of one unit of length of a substance having one degree rise in temperature. 
MONOHEDRONFrom the Greek word hedron (a geometrical figure having any number of planes). The theoretical ideal shape for planing over the water surface is one of constant (mono) section. Thus monohedron describes a hull that has a running surface of constant section; in practice the sections may not be exactly the same.

METERING SCREWAn extrusiontype screw feeder or conveyor section used to feed pulverized or doughy material at a constant rate. 
ISOBARIC PROCESSA thermodynamic process of a gas in which the heat transfer to or from the gaseous system causes a volume change at constant pressure. 
NEWTONIAN REFERENCE FRAMEOne of a set of reference frames with constant relative velocity and within which Newton's laws hold; the frames have a common time, and coordinates are related by the Galilean transformation rule.
