Bending Moment in a Beam Lab Report

Aim of Bending Moment in a Beam Aim of this experiment is to study effect of force magnitude on bending moment of beam Recommended:   Deflection of Beam Lab Report Theory Bending Moment in a Beam Beams A structural element which is designed and used to bear high load of structure and other external load is called beam. There are many different types of beam like cantilever beam, simple supported beam and overhanging beam.  Bending of Beam When an external load or the structural load applied in beam is large enough to displace the beam from its present place, then that deflection of beam from its resent axis is called bending of beam.  Bending Moment In simple words bending moment is the product of force applied on beam with the distance between the point of application of force and fixed end of the beam Introduction to Experiment of Bending Moment in a Beam This experiment is about studying the effect of force magnitude on bending of beam and for that structure hardwar

Different Types of Fluid Flow Measurement Devices

Following are the different types of fluid flow measurement devices which are available for the flow rate measurement.  Orifice Plate Venture Tube Flow Nozzles Variable Area Orifice Plate Recommended: Orifice Plate Lab Report Advantages of Orifice Plate •Orifice plate is very simplest instrument available which is also very easy to install and remove •Have high pressure recover efficiency of 65 percent •Have the ability of measure flow rate over a wide rage •Cost effective Disadvantages of  Orifice Plate •It only support those fluid that are homogeneous is nature •It work under a limited viscosity of fluid •Accuracy of orifice plate depends on fluid density, viscosity and pressure •Working limited to horizontal applications Venture  meter   Recommended: Venture Meter Lab Report Advantages of Venture meter • Offer horizontal, vertical and inclined flow measurement • Perfect working behavior prediction • Very high pressure recovery eff

Brinell Hardness Test

Hardness is one of the material properties that allows the material to resist plastic deformation. The plastic deformation may be because of penetration or in some other way. The resistance can also be from bending, scratching, abrasion or cutting etc.

Brinell Hardness Test Lab Report

Hardness is the mechanical property of the material which helps him in resisting the plastic deformation of the material.  Plastics deformation can be form the starching, compression or due to indentation of any object in the work piece.  Brinell hardness test is performed to find the hardness typically called the Brinell hardness.  Procedure Brinell hardness test in perform in such a way that first of all a work piece made of desire material is obtain and is fixed on the plate form of the brinell hardness testing machine.  Then a small ball usually of 10 mm diameter, made of tungsten carbide is used to apply the load of about 3000 kg on the work piece. Load is applied for certain duration and then removed.  Due to such high load the ball penetrate into the outer surface of the work piece and upon removal make cavity at that position.  Diameter of the cavity is measured from at least two positions and these positions should be at right angle of each other.  The diameter measure

Gas turbine working with intake, compressor, combustur & Gears

Introduction: In order to understand the purpose of compressor, intake and combustur there is need to understand the working of turbine in simple words. The air or gas comes from intake and compressed with the help of compressor through adiabatic process as no heat enter or leave the system and then it enters in combustion chamber where it get mixed with fuel and burn with constant pressure after that it is expand to drive the shaft. These mechanism can be divided into four stages 

Designing of belts, Clutch and Gear Assignment

Question No 1 A pulley system uses a flat belt of cross section area 1000 mm square and density 1150 kg/m^3.  The angle of the lap on the smaller wheel is 130, the coefficient of friction is 0.32 and the maximum force allowed in the belt is 550N and velocity is 9 m/sec. Calculate  The maximum power when centrifugal force is not included The maximum power when centrifugal force is included  The initial belt tensions 

Construction Material for Bushfire Prone Areas

According to Wastiels, L. (2009) building structural design and building material are the two most important factors those need to be considered during the designing phase of the building.  Out of these two factors, building material will be discussed in this report. Selecting a building material is one of the most difficult tasks now a day because now it is not just selecting a strongest material for any building, now it is about fulfilling a certain criteria. 

Self-Healing Concrete

According to the Povindar K (1993) concrete is one of the best construction materials available now due to it’s to take large compressive loads. In the case when the applied load is more than the compressive strength of the concrete, load applied can produce cracks in the concrete column of in any other structure. Due to this crack the other properties of the concrete structure like permeability, durability and strength also start to decrease. To stop this decrease in properties the crack present in the concrete structure has to fix which cost a lot. According to the Kim Van Tittelboom (2008) crack in the concrete structure can be dangerous for the steel placed inside it for the higher strength. Moisture through the crack will enter the concrete structure due to which the steel start to rust, this further decrease the strength of the structure.

K. Bansal (n.d) a structural element which is used to support heavy loads in different structures is called beam.  Beam in any structure bears huge load which tries to bend the beam and beam support the structure by resisting the bending produce by the load.  Ability of the beam to resist the load depends on the type of beam, material of beam and shape of beam, S Timoshenko (1940).  According to  there are many different type of beam and each one of these beams can be of any material
