The governor is a device which is used to controlling the speed of an engine based on the load requirements. Basic governors sense speed and sometimes load of a prime mover and adjust the energy source to maintain the desired level. So it’s simply mentioned as a device giving automatic control (either pressure or temperature) or limitation of speed.
The governors are control mechanisms and they work on the principle of feedback control. Their basic function is to control the spe
India is building world's highest railway bridge.
Indian engineers are toiling in the Himalayas to build the world's highest railway bridge which is expected to be 35 metres taller than the Eiffel Tower when completed by 2016.
The arch-shaped steel structure is being constructed over the Chenab River to link sections of the spectacular mountainous region of India's northern Jammu and Kashmir state.
The bridge is expected to be 359 metres (1,177 feet) high when completed -- surpassing th
During the years of extensive asbestos use in industry, mechanical engineers were at risk of exposure to asbestos under the widest variety of conditions and circumstances.Mechanical engineering is the design, analysis, testing, and production of products. Mechanical engineers traditionally worked in chemical, aerospace, and automotive industries among others, and are now working in bioengineering and environmental fields in addition to the traditional mechanical engineering fields. Among other t
Superchargers are automotive performance products that may be factory-installed or added as an aftermarket upgrade. The job of a supercharger is to increase engine power and performance by a process known as forced-air induction. This simply means increasing the amount of air flowing into an engine's combustion chambers via the intake manifold. This increase in the amount of air allows for a relative increase in fuel that may be added to the combustion mixture, translating into a bigger bang t
There has always been a debate and discussion among all engineering students about which engineering course is the best? Students always love discussing about the best branch of engineering. Though this is a proven fact and it needs no discussion that mechanical engineering is the best still I will be providing 10 reasons over here which make mechanical engineering The Best among all other branches of engineering.
#1 Evergreen Field: Mechanical engineering is an evergreen field. Applic
Introducing undergrads to CFD and FEA software isn't a straightforward affair.
mechanical engineering students have a lot to learn and only a few short years to do it. First, they'll need to be versed in engineering concepts and the mathematics behind them. Then, they'll have to learn a slew of mathematical formulas and to become proficient in computer-aided design software.
With this pressing schedule, it's easy to see why engineering schools are scrambling to define the role that analysi
Many of us may know about two stroke or four stroke engine.Those who are from mechanical or automobile field must have to familiar with this term.Actually two stroke or four stroke is the cycle of any reciprocating engine.When only two stroke required to complete the reciprocating engine cycle then that engine is known as two stroke engine,and when four stroke required to complete the cycle then it is known as four stroke engine.
In four stroke engine the work is obtained only during one stro
Before cars and buses can make their mark, some developers say the best economic case for fuel cell mobility applications may be found in the warehouse
At a gathering of fuel cell developers at Germany's giant Hanover Fair this past April, Jacob Hansen talked about plans of his Danish startup, H2 Logic A/S, to launch the first of seven fuel cell-powered demonstration cars in Scandinavia this fall.
Not possible, countered someone else close to the project, looking at a mockup of the vehicl
Developers of a new commercial hybrid technology say it could double the speed of some of the most common industrial welding systems, even while it produces deeper welds and reduces splatter and heat distortion. Developed by former researchers from Ukraine's Paton Welding Institute, the technology is called Super-MIG and marries two welding technologies: plasma arc and metal inert gas, generally known as MIG, a variant of gas metal arc welding.
Super-MIG was designed to work with such availa
Modern-day computer numerically controlled machines are no longer modern enough. The 50-year-old G and M codes that drive those machines can't transfer valuable geometric information from CAD and CAM systems, according to a group of experts who are advocating for widespread use of the recently approved STEP-NC standard. With the new standard, CAD and CAM applications have the capability to send product information to CNC machines.
But getting equipment and software suppliers on board with the
