## Rockfall Hazard Rating System for Federal Highway Administration

Construction of highways and railways is challenging around mountains and steep slopes. Each require special study by geologists and geotechnical engineers. Through geotechnical analysis, slopes are identified that are critical and require special protection.

## Types of Projections for Designing Machines and Instruments

Projection is a method used to represent a 3-D object on a plane surface without including the mathematical calculations. It actually makes the study of design of an object or structure easier.

## Heat Resistant Materials for Home and Industrial Applications

Materials that have the ability to protect equipment and instruments from being damaged due to high temperature are called heat resistant materials. These materials can be found on the inside of ovens, in car parts, on the manufacturing floor of industrial buildings, etc.

## Thermoplastics: Thermosetting and Thermosoftening Plastics

The word “plastic” means soft or flexible, but modern plastics include a large range of synthetic polymers that are hard and rigid. We use various plastic products in our daily lives such as shopping bags, casings for electrical plugs and sockets, electronic gadgets, and many more.

## Electrical Safety Around Water

Electrical safety is an important issue in working areas where water is used as a base element. We need to follow some precautions and instructions while enjoying swimming in a pool, operating a boat, or working around a dock.

## How to Calibrate a Light Meter

A light meter has become an important tool to measure the light levels for various areas like photosynthesis and photography. Here we take a look at some important information regarding a light meter and how it is calibrated.

## Discussion: Different Multiplexing Techniques

Multiplexing is a technology to transfer digital or analog data in daily use devices like telephone and television. Here, we discuss the various multiplexing technologies used for data transmission.

## Power Factor Correction Transformers & Power Factor Calculations

Correction or improvement of the power factor of electrical equipment like transformers is done to reduce the required electric power and thereby save electricity. Here, we discuss how the power factor correction is done and also the calculation steps to process the method.

## Designing and Installing a Shoulder-warming Radiant Heat System for a Factory or Shop Space

Installing radiant heat systems in factories or industrial plants requires knowledge of the current and future uses of the space. Designs should be focused on producing optimal performance within minimal footprint.

## How to Install Geothermal Heating and Cooling Systems in Your House

This guide will give you the ins and outs of how to install geothermal heating and cooling systems in your home. Geothermal heatpumps are a fantastic way to cut heating and cooling costs using the ambient temperature of the Earths crust at 600 ft. down.

## Transmission Shaft with Key Shear Stress Problems

Keys are very useful and inexpensive locking devices for transmission shafts. The problems of key shear stress in shafts and their impacts on transmission system are described below.

## Ceramic Coatings for Metals

Ceramic coatings are very useful procedure used to protect machine parts. We will spend a good deal of time covering the aspects of ceramic coatings for metals including plasma spray, electric arc, and detonation spray methods of application.

## Operation of a Rivet Gun

A rivet gun is a very useful tool that fastens metal parts with rivets. Working with a rivet gun can increase productivity without degrading the quality of the finished product. There is more to the operation of a rivet gun is more than just learning the triggering mechanism.

## Hydrogen Embrittlement: Stainless Steel Damage

The machine parts made up of stainless steel become brittle due to the Hydrogen Embrittlement. Here we will discuss hydrogen embrittlement and its effects in stainless steel.

## Selection of a Flatwire Conveyor Belt System

There is huge need for flatwire conveyor belts in various industries like the food and glass industries. Here we will discussed the design and importance of flatwire belts system with their advantages and disadvantages.

## Limitations of Shearography Non-destructive Testing of Composites

What is shearography testing, and what are its limitations? Here we will define shearography and include all relevant applications and possible limitations of shearography testing of composites.

## Power Recovery Turbines for Large Radial Engines

What are power recovery turbines? Although they were used on the most highly efficient and powerful aircraft engines of WW II, they are virtually unknown today. This article describes the short-lived technology of PRTs as well as some of the famous engines that used them.

## What are the Most Efficient Methods of Distillation?

Various distillation processes are used worldwide in large scale usage. These methods of separating the elements of different solutions like crude oil are very efficient, and they are less complicated as well.
