First Law of Thermodynamics with open and closed system Examples

First Law Energy cannot be created nor destroyed in any isolated thermodynamics system but it can be changed from one form like heat into another form like work or internal energy or both. First law of thermodynamics follow the law of conservation of energy and it state that energy cannot be created nor be destroyed but it can be converted from one form to another form. From first law of thermodynamics it can be said that the internal energy of the system remains same and it is equal to the heat provided to the system minus the work done by the system. Open System Open system are those in which mass and heat can cross the boundaries of the system. Example of first law of thermodynamics for open system can be seen in pumps, turbines and heat exchanges where heat and mass cross the boundaries of the system. In such application the internal energy of the system is equal to the heat provided to the system minus the work by the system. In these system mass in slowing out of sy

How to Keep a Hundred Axle Modular Transporter’s Platform Horizontal

Have you ever seen a modular trailer with hundreds of axles? That is a perfect description of self-propelled modular trailers (SPMTs). The heavy haulers have the capacity to transport the heaviest loads from the land to offshore locations. So, how did the first self propelled modular transporter come about? Before the 1970s, engineers would fabricate pieces of large processing plants on site. This was possible because most of the projects were onshore. However, as engineer started working on offshore projects, heavy transport solutions were necessary. Engineers now fabricated large equipment on land. They then use modular transporters to move the equipment to the offshore destination. Read on and discover everything you need to know about heavy module transporters
