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.
Peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and reduces the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by academic scholars and professionals.
