Fluid Mechanics & How it Relates to Mechanical Engineering
Hydraulics and fluid mechanics, or the study of liquids, is an important area for Mechanical Engineers. Whether designing a steam engine, or working on a pump or turbine, Mechanical Engineers need to know how the water or liquid is going to move or operate. This allows them to create and maintain important machines that power our every day world. Learn more about this interesting topic here.
Despite the immense capabilities of hydraulics presented in terms of moving higher loads and in other industrial utilization, pneumatics are still in wide use today. The article discusses some applications and advantages of pneumatics in industry.
Solving a CFD based multi-objective optimization problem is a computational time and resource consuming task. Efficiency is main issue here.Efficiency can be achieved by carefully choosing the optimization method preferring small population operating method and good geometrical modelling technique.
Fluid mechanics, the branch of science that deals with the study of fluids (liquids and gases) in a state of rest or motion is an important subject of Civil, Mechanical and Chemical Engineering. Its various branches are fluid statics, fluid kinematics and fluid dynamics.
This article describes the most important components of hydroelectric power plants and how they work to convert energy from water into electric energy. The most important part of the hydroelectric power plant is the dam, which acts as the water reservoir.
In this three part article series let us see the various components of hydroelectric power plants and the working of hydroelectric power plants. The most important part of the hydroelectric power plant is the dam, which acts as the water reservoir.
Hydropower is generated from the water flowing in the river or oceans. There are two water cycles involved in the generation of electricity. One water cycle is the natural cycle and the other is inside the hydropower station.
Fluids, liquid or gases can flow through pipes and cylinders of different shapes and sizes easily and can transfer the power or pressure and force from the point of generation to the point of actuation. The fluid power systems include both hydraulic and pneumatic systems
Our human bodies have blood running around in arteries and veins (don’t ask me which one carries pure or impure blood), which is very important for the healthy existence of the body. Similar hydraulic equipments have hydraulic fluids in their system which is very important for them. Find out more!
A fluid is a fluid so why should the compressibility of hydraulic fluid matter? Well it does matter a lot for that would change the entire dynamics of the system, and probably make it useless for practical purposes. Here is the answer to this:
