Steel is the alloy of iron and carbon. Steel consists of carbon content up to a maximum of 1.5%(Somewhere it will be mentioned as up to 2%). The other elements of steel are silicon, phosphorous, manganese, copper etc. will be having the more or fewer compositions to attain the desired properties. In this following article, we are going […]
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 a machine component is subjected to a load (Static or dynamic load), it will experience the bending along its length due to the stress induced in it. This stress is known as Bending stress. Besides, there are other types of stress are also induced. They are Tensile stress, Compressive stress, Shearing stress, Bearing stress, Torsional stress. In this case, we […]
A beam is a long and a straight piece with a uniform cross-section characterised by the type of supports. These beams are used to support different type of loads. There are different types of beams are available along with the different applied loads. Let’s see each of them. Types of Beams Cantilever Beam Simply Supported […]

A composite shaft is a shaft made up of two different diameters. The composite shaft may experience twist when they subjected to the torque. This twist can be obtained in these composite shaft, be based on the torque applied position when the shafts in series and parallel. A composite shaft When a shaft is having […]
When a shaft is transmitting power from driver equipment to the driven equipment, It is necessary to calculate the shaft diameter from the torque based on the maximum torque that can be transferred through the shaft or the maximum amount of twist in the shaft. Otherwise, the shaft may not satisfy the functionality of the […]
Wrought iron is the pure iron which is having more than 99.5% of iron as the major constituent. The other typical compositions like carbon, silicon and sulphur are available in very fewer compositions. The different properties and the applications of wrought iron are discussed in this article. Wrought Iron Wrought iron is an iron alloy […]
Cast iron is a Ferrous metal which is having iron as the main constituent. All the ferrous metals are extracted from the Pig iron by re-melting the pig iron with coke and limestone in a furnace. There are different types of Cast Iron are available. In this article, we have discussed all the different cast iron types […]
Torsional shear stress or Torsional stress is the shear stress produced in the shaft due to the twisting. This twisting in the shaft is caused by the couple acting on it. What is a couple? How can shear stress in the shaft be produced? Let’s get into the subject. Shear Stress in Shafts Twisting can be […]
Resilience is a capability of a material to absorb the energy. Briefly, the Strain energy stored in a body due to some external load is known as the Resilience where the body is within the elastic limit. Proof Resilience and Modulus of Resilience are discussed in this article. Resilience When a body subjected to external […]
When a body is subjected to a system of forces, then there will be a change in the volume of the body due to the stress acts on the body. Bulk modulus is the measure of resistibility to the external forces acting on the body. whereas Young’s modulus is stiffness in the body, whereas Rigidity modulus or […]
In the previous article, we have discussed what are the different types of Cast Iron. In this article, we are going to brief about how the mechanical properties are going to change when we add some impurities on Cast Iron. Effect of Adding Impurities on Cast Iron Alloy cast iron is obtained by adding the different […]
In manufacturing process selection of materials for the design of a machine is an essential step to accomplish the reliable functionality of the machine. The selected material should satisfy both the availability as well as the function and many other factors. Those are discussed In brief. There are some factors need to be considered while selecting a […]
In Mechanical Engineering The material science plays a significant role. As a Design Engineer, it is necessary to understand the Classification of materials, Material Properties, and Selection of materials for engineering purpose. Selecting a suitable material base upon the condition of operation and machinability and many other factors is also a big task. Let’s get into the subject […]
Sometimes machine members are subjected to load with a sudden impact due to falling or hitting one object on another. The load produced due to these actions is known as the Impact load. The stress produced in the machine members due to the Impact load is known as the Impact stress. Let’s discuss this topic in a […]
Fundamental deviation Calculations: The fundamental deviation is an allowance rather than tolerance. The allowance is simply the deviation between the hole minimum diameter to the shaft maximum diameter. Where the tolerance refer to either hole (Max. dia of hole-Min. Dia. of the hole) or shaft (Max. Dia. of the shaft- Min. Dia. of the Shaft). There are […]
In the design of machine members, it is necessary to understand the Safety factor (SF). It is also known as Factor of safety (FoS). It describes that the load carrying capacity of any designed member. How much stronger the system than the expected or intended. Make sense? Let’s get into the topic thoroughly. The Safety Factor […]
When machine members fastened together with Riveted joints, cotter joints, knuckle joints etc. There will be a compressive stress produced at the surface of contact between the two machine members. This stress can be called as the Bearing Stress. Let’s see how a bolt can experience the bearing failure. Bearing stress can also be said as […]
In a Machine, every component subjected to various forces. Due to these forces acting on the machine components, there are various types of stresses are induced. Where a simple stress is defined as the internal resistance force that opposes the external force per unit area. Where the Strain is defined as the deformation per unit length. […]
Young’s Modulus is a mechanical property of the material where it can be called as modulus of Elasticity/Elastic Modulus. An English physician and physicist named Thomas Young described the elastic properties of materials. Young’s modulus can be defined as simply the stiffness of a solid material. When an external force acts upon a body, then the […]
