a geometric solid whose six faces are parallelograms

Parallelepiped

 

a hexahedron whose opposite faces are parallel. A parallelepiped has eight vertices and 12 edges; its opposite faces are congruent parallelograms. A parallelepiped whose lateral edges are perpendicular to a base is called a right parallelepiped; its four lateral faces are rectangles. A rectangular parallelepiped is a right parallelepiped with a rectangular base; consequently, all six faces are rectangles. A parallelepiped whose faces are squares is called a cube. The volume of a parallelepiped is equal to the product of an altitude and the area of a base.

Unfortunately even if the system has integer solutions this does not mean that the corresponding parallelepiped can be constructed, so we need the second step for proving that the parallelepiped can be constructed if at most one of the numbers [k.

Three-dimensional numerical simulation of solidification of high density polyethylene (HDPE) in a parallelepiped shaped extrudate is accomplished using a cell model for spherulite growth on a microscopic level under quiescent conditions and coupled with an enthalpy based heat transfer equation on the macroscopic level.
We investigate the crystallization of HDPE in an elongated parallelepiped, which resembles an extrudate with a square cross section (see Fig.
Since in the extrusion process, extrudates are cooled by a cross-flowing quench fluid, we will cool the parallelepiped with the help of an air stream blowing across its longitudinal axis.
On combining Eqs 7 and 8, the energy balance equation for the parallelepiped domain considered in Fig.
Since the parallelepiped representing a real extrudate is a three-dimensional object, the distribution of various variables inside the extrudate at any stage of crystallization will also be three-dimensional in nature.
On applying the argument of symmetry of the parallelepiped domain, one can see that it leads to a constant temperature everywhere inside the extr udate.
