Machine-Readable repository of Engineering Equations?
There a plenty of resources for human-readable engineering equations. Engineeringtoolbox.com is a great example. Is there a machine-readable database of engineering equations? I'm making an engineering notebook out with Jupyter. Currently I have to manually define each equation that I would like to solve.
If it doesn't exist, would anybody else like to collaborate on a github project? I imagine that the database would include …
- the name(s) of each equation,
- a "canonical form" of the equation,
- alternative forms of the equations
- perhaps related equations (simplified forms, more generic forms, different coordinate systems etc.)
- the quantities,
- the names of the quantities,
- the dimensions of each quantity,
This would be an open-source project where anybody could programmatically search the database. If a suitable database doesn't exist, let me know how you'd want to divide and conquer a project like this.
It could go beyond just equations and include more empirical information such a tables of standard components (american wire gauge, nominal pipe size, etc.) or physical properties of common materials.
