1) The state of a → rigid body if, as viewed from an → inertial frame of rest: 1) the → linear acceleration of its → center of mass is zero, and 2) its → angular acceleration about any axis fixed in this reference frame is zero. The center of mass may be moving with constant velocity and the body may be rotating about a fixed axis with constant angular velocity.
2) In → thermodynamics, the state of a system in which → pressure is the same every where with no other forces acting on the system except a uniform external pressure.

mechanical power
  توان ِ مکانیکی   
tavân-e mekâniki (#)

Fr.: puissance mécanique   

The → rate at which → work is done by a → force. In other words, → mechanical energy per unit time. Mechanical power is expressed in units of joules/sec (joules/s) or a watt (W) in the → mks system.

2) A collection of → machines functioning together to achieve the transfer of motion.

mechanical; → system.

mechanical wind
  باد ِ مکانیکی   
bâd-e mekâniki

Fr.: vent mécanique   

A process in which matter is shed into a → Keplerian disk from a star rotating at the → critical velocity. The disk is probably destroyed by the pressure exerted by the stellar radiation and finally matter is lost. Such a process seems to occur around → Be stars which are stars rotating at or very near the critical limit (Meynet et al. 2007, arXiv:0709.2275).

mechanical; → wind.

  ساز-و-کاریکانه، ساز-و-کاروارانه   
sâzokârikâné, sâzokârvârâné

Fr.: mécaniquement   

1) In a mechanical manner; by a mechanism.
2) In a machine-like manner; without feeling.

mechanical; → -ly.

  ساز--و-کارمند، ساز-و-کار-گر   
sâzokârmand, sâzokârgar

Fr.: mécanicien   

A person skilled in constructing, working, or repairing machines; mechanic; machinist (
