Section Modulus is also referred to as the Polar Modulus or the Torsional Sectional Modulus. It is denoted by Zp. Along with these, there are two more definitions also there to discuss. So let’s discuss this topic in more detail. (FYI: We discuss this topic more in terms of circular shafts, If you are looking […]
In Mechanical Engineering, Machine Design is subjected to creating new or Advanced machines. This involves improving the existing machines to better machines.
The design process is a time-consuming process which includes implementing an Idea and considering the commercial and economic aspects, Making the idea into a shape in the form of drawings by keeping the available resources in mind to make the actual Idea into a life.
This is the art of Mechanical engineering.
The Idea Thake shape and eventually come to life
When two equipment (Driver and driven) need to coupled together, then they need to be aligned properly to couple together. Installing the two equipment with 100% alignments is not possible. These misalignments can be accommodated by the special member called coupling. There are two different types of couplings. Flexible couplings and rigid couplings. These coupling […]
In the previous article, we have discussed the Functional requirement of coupling, coupling classification and Rigid Coupling types. In this article, we are going to discuss the different Flexible coupling types. Flexible coupling types Flexible couplings are used to connect two shafts having axial, radial and angular misalignment. Following are the different types of flexible couplings. […]
A shaft coupling is a mechanical element that connects the two shafts together to transmit the torque from one end to the other by accommodating the misalignment. Usually of a shaft can be made up of limited lengths so we have to make a couple multiple pieces of shafts to achieve the larger lengths to […]
The ability of a material to resist indentation or penetration is called Hardness. To test the hardness of any material is simply forcing an indentor into the surface of the metal by applying the load. There are different methods are developed to test this hardness. In the previous article we have discussed The Brinell Hardness test, the Rockwell Hardness […]
