The point where the total sum of a pressure field acts in a body is called Center of pressure. A force acts through that point that causes no moment about that point. The value of the integrated vectorial pressure field tells about the total force vector acting at the center of pressure. The resultant force and center of pressure location produce equivalent force and moment on the body as the original pressure field.
A journal is a periodical publication intended to further progress of science, usually by reporting new research. Most journals are highly specialized, although some of the oldest journals publish articles, reviews, editorials, short communications, letters, and scientific papers across a wide range of scientific fields. Journals contain articles that peer reviewed, in an attempt to ensure that articles meet the journal's standards of quality, and scientific validity. Each such journal article becomes part of the permanent scientific record.
