How To Select Materials Based On Mechanical Properties

What is quite significant in designing a machine is selection of materials. When put into use, different machine elements face different working conditions, which they have to survive. Hence, in turn depends on the material by which they are developed. Hence a correct choice of material decides the working of any machine component.

Typical Mechanical Properties and applications are:

1. Strength:

Steel with alloying elements like

  1. Nickel steel – Turbine Blades. Nuts, Screws
  2. Nickel Chromium Steel or Stainless Steels – Aircraft component, Gear with Heavy loads
  3. Chromium Molybdenum Steels – Gear box shafts, Gears
  4. Silicon – Manganese Steel – Axles, Shafts

 2. Hardness:

  1. Alloy steel – Gears, Bushes cutting tools.
  2. Stellite – Cutting tools for surgeries

5. Toughness:

  1. Titanium –Machine tools, Aircraft parts, Connecting rod valves

6. Machinability:

  1. Cast iron – For many Machine tools, Piston Rings, Frames, Brake Drums, Flywheels, gears

ALLOYS

They are materials that are added together in certain proportions to achieve the collective goodness of all. The resulting composition is called as Alloys.

Some important alloys and their typical uses are given below:

1. Steel based Alloys:

  1. Nickel steel – Turbine Blades. Nuts, Screws
  2. Nickel Chromium Steel or Stainless Steels – Aircraft component, Gear with Heavy loads
  3. Chromium Molybdenum Steels – Gears, gear box shafts
  4. Silicon –Axles, Shafts

2. Aluminium based Alloys:

An Introduction To AutoCAD 3D Modelling Tools

Let’s first know what is 3D co-ordinate systems.

3D Co-ordinate systems

1. Absolute 3D co-ordinate system:

XY plane is thought to be parallel to the computer screen. +Z axis is perpendicular to the computer screen projecting towards the user.

A point with co-ordinate 3, 3, 5. Where 3 units along +x axis, 3 units up along +y axis and finally 5 units towards the user (along +z axis).

2. Relative cylindrical co-ordinate system:

A point at 4<30, 5 is marked using relative cylindrical co-ordinate system. 4 units from the last reference point along +x axis, 30 degrees from the x-axis measured

3. Relative spherical co-ordinate system:

A point at 5<30<40 is marked making use of relative spherical co-ordinate system. 5 units from the last reference point along +x axis, 30 degrees from the x-axis measured in the anticlockwise direction in xy plane and 40 degrees up from xy plane.

Types of 3D modelling:

3D modelling is of three types. They are

1. Wire frame modelling

2. Surface modelling

3. Solid modelling

Wire frame modelling:

This model is a 3D representation of objects by using lines, arcs and circles. It is skeletal and does not have surfaces. Only edge details are shown.

Surface modelling:

Here, the 3D object is made up of opaque surfaces . The inner portion of the object is hollow. Hidden are the details available behind the surfaces.

Solid modelling:

In solid modelling, a solid 3D object is produced. It is like a solid object made of a material like wood. The solid thus produced can be cut into pieces. Mass properties of solid models can be determined.

Some of the 3D autocad commands are listed below:

1. Box: It is used to draw 3D solid box. The command is BOX. It can be selected from solids toolbar or draw menu – solids

2. Cylinder: It is used to draw 3D solid cylinder. The command is CYLINDER. It could be selected from solids toolbar or draw menu – solids

3. Elliptical: The command is CYLINDER. It can be selected from solids toolbar or draw menu – solids

4. Cone: This is used to draw a 3 D cone. The command is CONE. It can be selected from solids toolbar or draw menu – solids

5. Sphere: Sphere is used to draw a 3D solid sphere. The command is SPHERE. It can be selected from solids toolbar or draw menu-solids

6. VPoint: It is used to specify the viewing direction for a 3 D visualization of the drawing. The command is VPOINT. It is selected from view menu – 3D view point.

7. 3D FACE: This is used to draw a 3D face. The command is 3D face or 3F. it can be selected from surfaces toolbar or Draw menu – Surface. 3D face is used to draw a three or four sided surface anywhere in 3D space. Each corner point can be assigned different Z – coordinate values.

8. Elevation: ELEV is used to draw elevation and set extrusion thickness properties of new objects.

We conclude now.

An Overview On Electronic Power Steering

Power steering

In the heavy duty trucks and power tractors the effort applied by the driver is insufficient to turn the wheels. In this case a booster arrangement is incorporated in the steering system. The booster is set to operate when the steering wheel is turned. The booster then takes over and does most of the work for steering. The system is called power steering and uses compressed air, electrical methods, and hydraulic pressure. Hydraulic pressure is used on a vast majority of power steering method nowadays.

When the steering wheel is turned, the worm turns the sector of the worm wheel and the arm. The arm turns the road wheel by means of the drag link. If the resistance offered to turn the wheels is too high and the effort applied by the driver to the steering wheel is too weak, then the worm, will be displaced axially together with the distributor slide valve. The axial movement of the distributor slide valve in the cylinder will admit oil into the booster cylinder through the pipe line. The piston in the booster cylinder will turn the road wheels via the gear rack, the toothed worm sector, arm and drag link. At the same time, the worm sector will act upon the work and will shift it together with the distribution slide valve to its initial position and stop the piston travel in the boost cylinder. When the steering wheel is turned in the other direction, the wheels would get turned appropriately in the same sequence.

The more the steering mechanism and wheels resist turning, the more the control valve is displaced. Therefore, power assistance is always supplied in fragments to the effort required to turn the wheels.

Electronic power steering

This is used in some cars. The assistance could be applied directly by an electric stepper motor integrated with the steering column, or the steering mechanism, or it can be applied indirectly with hydraulic assistance pressurized by electric pump. EPS attached to the rack and pinion-steering-exists in Honda-City vehicles.

Electronic power steering improves steering feel and power saving efficiencies and increases steering performance. It does so with control mechanisms that reduces steering effort. Nissan’s Blue Bird passenger car series have an electronically controlled three way power steering. This power steering is responsive to vehicle speed, providing maximum assistance as the speed rises. The driver can also select his or her own performance from three levels of assistance that make the steering effort heavy, normal or light.

We conclude the discussion.

An Overview On Clamping Screws

Clamping screws are mechanical elements that use screw thrust for work piece fixing and positioning.

Clamping screws are used for fixing work piece and to position them, mainly in applications like machining and mechanical testing. They have a screw with a ball tip that applies horizontal force to the work piece, keeping it in place. It could be noted that hex socket-head cap screw clamping bolts are used for several applications to clamp screws. But clamping screws are credited with reducing damage to the work piece while keeping it securely clamped.

Additionally, the ball tips of clamping screws can more easily secure irregularly shaped work pieces, without a need to alter the shape of a jig piece.

There are 4 types of ball-tip shapes for clamping screws.

Full ball fix the work piece and is cheap, flat ball maintain the integrity of the work piece and gives a large contact surface area. The other two are limited swivel types, with the flat-ball type having a flat surface, and the knurled ball meshing with rough surfaces to prevent swivelling or reversal.

There are also 5 types of ball materials and their benefits. They are steel with 50-60 HRC hardness; stainless steel with the same hardness, but corrosion and heat resistance; polyacetal with 94 HRM hardness and a knack to preserve the integrity of work pieces; brass with 75-125 HV hardness that also reduces damage to the work piece; and ceramic with 1100 HV hardness and electrical insulation and wear resistance.

Advantages of clamping screws

By replacing hex socket head cap screws and hex socket set screws with clamping screws or clamping bolts while fixing work pieces, point contact with work pieces could be achieved. This helps to transmit force to the work piece and keeps the clamp secure.

Also, hex socket head cap screw type fixing bolts have functions similar to clamping screws.

Usage of clamping screws

  • Work piece fixing.

  • Tool fixing.

Types and features of clamping screws

There are several varieties of shapes and materials, which could be selected according to the application.

Ball shape

There are 4 ball-shaped tip types.

  • Full ball: The point contact fixes work piece. Low cost.
  • Flat ball: Large contact surface area, do not damage work piece.
  • Flat ball/limited swivel type: Structure of the flat surface do not swivel over.
  • Knurled ball/limited swivel type: Secure fixing even on rough surfaces like castings

We conclude the discussion.

An Overview On Fluid Mechanics

What is a fluid?

The three common states of matter are solid, liquid, and gas.

A fluid is either a liquid or a g

If surface effects does not exist, flow behaves similarly in all common fluids, whether gases or liquids.

For example – The Penn State Sea Lion

Students in the Penn State Mechanical Engineering Department designed and built a human powered submarine, named the “Sea Lion”. In the preliminary stages of the design, some wind tunnel testing was done on various hull shapes and fin shapes. Since the submarine moves below any surface effects, it was perfectly valid to run these tests in a wind tunnel rather than in water. It was found that drag and lift measurements must, of course, be scaled properly according to the rules of dimensional analysis.

A fluid is a substance that deforms under the application of a shear stress.

A stress is defined as a force per unit area, acting on an infinitesimal surface element.

Stresses have both magnitude and direction, and the direction is relative to the surface on which the stress acts.

There are two types of stresses: normal stresses and tangential stresses.

Pressure is a normal stress, and acts inward.

A shear stress is a tangential stress.

One can construct a free body diagram of a little fluid particle to visualize both the normal and shear stresses acting on the body

Free Body Diagram, Fluid Particle at Rest

Let there be a tiny fluid element in a case where the fluid is at rest. A fluid at rest could have only normal stresses. Here, the sum of all the forces must balance the weight of the fluid element. This condition is known as hydrostatics. Here, pressure is the only normal stress which exists. Pressure always acts positively inward.

This diagram is 2D, but an actual fluid element is 3D. Hence, the pressure on the front face must also balance that on the back face.


Free Body Diagram, Fluid Particle in Motion

Let a tiny fluid element that is moving around in some flow field. Since the fluid is in motion, it can have both normal and shear stresses, as shown by the free body diagram. The vector sum of all forces acting on the fluid element must equal the mass of the element times its acceleration
Likewise, the net moment about the centre of the body can be obtained by summing the forces due to each shear stress times its moment arm.

Shear stress is defined as a force per unit area, acting parallel to an infinitesimal surface element.

Shear stress is primarily caused by friction between fluid particles, due to fluid viscosity.

Fluids at rest cannot stop a shear stress; when a shear stress is applied to a resting fluid, the fluid will not remain at rest, but will move because of the shear stress.

In other words, a fluid at rest cannot resist a shear stress.

What is mechanics?

It is the application of the laws of force and motion. It has two branches, statics and dynamics.”

IN short and simple, fluid mechanics is the application of the laws of force and motion to fluids, i.e. liquids and gases. There are two branches of fluid mechanics:

Fluid Statics or hydrostatics is the study of fluids at rest.

Fluid Dynamics is the study of fluids in motion.

We conclude now.

CAD-CAM Technology For Metalworking Machine Shops

CAD-CAM technology is the current solution to CNC machining automation. Can your machine shop benefit from CAD-CAM? More often machine shops are using multiple CNC programming systems. The reason is quite simple. Not many CAD-CAM products do it and small to mid-sized machine shops can benefit from having a primary system with a supporting cast of programming solutions in order to meet all of their programming needs. SO the question is how can BobCAD-CAM fit the bill as your primary CAD-CAM solution?

CAD-CAM Technology Provides You an Edge

BobCAD-CAM software has been in the machine shops for over 25 years as a solution to automating the part making process for CNC machining. CAD data is needed in order to program tool path. In today’s manufacturing solid models are primarily used. BobCAD-CAM offers CAD importing as well as full solid modeling functionality so that manufacturers can either import their part models for programming or design them from scratch. This permits shops to easily access CAD parts or make them easier inside of BobCAD-CAM. CAD Design attributes include drawing with wireframes, surfaces and solids.

2D & 3D Machine Tool paths for CNC Programming

BobCAD-CAM is a modular system. This says that shops that only need 2.5 Axis machining do not have to pay more for features that aren’t needed. The software can be used for Hole Drilling, 2.5, 3, 4 & 5 Axis. Adding machining functionality is easy and affordable. Profiling, pocketing, 3D Semi-Finishing, 3D Finishing and special REST machining tool paths operations with a host of new features make the process of machining simple while using the Wizards. Wizards removes the guesswork from the entire process of developing designs.

CNC Machine Simulation & After Processing

BobCAD-CAM gives the advantage of simulation and customizable machine post processing. Simulation gives you the ability to visualize machining to supervise and eliminate potential mistakes. The Machine Simulation Pro module permits you to use your machine kinematics to simulate the process with the machine you have. This is highly useful.

When it comes to posting, the software could post out to Lathe, Milling, Router, Water Jet, Burning and Plasma CNC machines. This says that essentially, you only need one BobCAD-CAM for multiple CNC machines inside your shop. This could not only save money but it can speed up productivity as well.

How Essential Are Noise-damping Lubricants For Improving Vehicle Quality

In today’s transportation sector, the vehicle quality could be related to lowering or eliminating NVH. Lesser noise and more smoothness are important design feature for the buyers and operators of most type of vehicle. This is same for passenger cars and light-duty trucks, as well as two-wheelers, heavy vehicles, and even off-road equipments.

Hence, effective NVH control gets priority attention from vehicle development engineers, and the task is challenging. It involves shaping both smoothness and quietness vehicle attributes. Different manufacturing methods, component variations, dissimilar design materials, various operating conditions, and unpredictable driving and service habits just add to the complexity.

Synthetic noise-damping lubricants like Molykote brand Smart Lubrication solutions from Dow Corning Corp. could be economical, long-lasting to achieve quiet comfort and smoothness in many transportation applications. Molykote lubricants, specifically, were initially based on molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), processed from molybdenite ore.

Various lubricating solids, like MoS2, graphite, and polytetrafluoroethylene, are blended with different type of base oils, binders, solvents, rust and corrosion inhibitors, and anti-wear and extreme-pressure additives. The synthetic lubricants to help solve NVH problems now also include silicones and other noise-damping lubricant formulations in the form of pastes, anti-friction coatings, greases, powder additives, oils, and dispersions.

Lubrication solutions for quieting noise and adding smoothness are found in most vehicle systems. For instance, anti-friction coatings are applied to piston skirts and rings with a special process to lower engine noise, and wear. Improved fuel efficiency and reduced emissions are added benefits.

Other noise-damping lubricant solutions for power train include the use of grease for clutch dual-mass flywheels and an AFC for HVAC compressor pistons. These high-performance lubricants also could be used to lower noise from camshafts and tappets, while coated exhaust manifold gaskets can eliminate the “ping” in exhaust systems.

Examples of brake-system NVH control include using Molykote Lubolid powder additives in pad and lining matrices to lower friction, vibration, and wear.

Caliper pin grease helps in quietening noise on brakes, and AFC for brake-pad retainer clips lowers friction, noise, and potential roughness. Nice lubrication also could help control NVH that might arise from shims, back plates, boosters, and pedal bearings and pivots. The same wear and corrosion resistance extends the life of loading-arm connecting pins for construction equipment such as backhoes.

Controlling noise from body systems is important, as well. Noise-damping greases are applied to slider guides for sunroofs and panoramic roofs. Colorless, non-staining AFCs are used as windows and doors seals. Other lubrications improve the tactile quality and helps deliver smooth-operating outside mirrors and antennas, as well as door, trunk, and lift gate latching mechanisms.

Noise-damping lubricants could be used throughout a vehicle’s interior. They do away with noise and add a velvety touch to media controls. They are mainly effective for quieting noise and smoothing operation of miniaturized motors with plastic gear sets.

The vast majority of today’s transportation vehicles are powered by internal-combustion engines, and these gas- or diesel-fuelled power plants will remain for some time. The need for good noise-damping lubrication will soon subside. The challenge for engineers to solve NVH will only increase with time.

Bearing Lubrication Procedures: Cleaning

How can you develop a system when you know your bearing lubricant is operating efficiently? To get the right answers is critical to extending bearing life and performance.

The removal of any existing oil, grease and anti-corrosion coatings increases in importance as the operating life and reliability of the application becomes more and more critical. The wetting of the contact surface by the lubricating film will be enhanced by a clean contact surface. Removal of the oils, grease and coating will also eliminate any potential incompatibilities that might exist between these products and the subject lubricant. It is always advised to remove these materials prior to applying silicone or per fluorinated based products.

Existing surface coatings could act as separating agents, preventing the applied grease from wetting the bearing balls and races properly. For applications that operate in the high speed range, or when a specialty lubricant is being used, a clean dry surface may be critical to ensure the proper adhesion between the grease thickener matrix and the bearing surfaces.

Many bearing companies offer their products pre-coated with an oil film and/or anticorrosion coating. If this coating has both a micro-thickness and is compatible with the chosen lubricant, then a pre-cleaning may not be necessary. It is important to discuss this situation with the subject bearing and lubricant supplier.

Use of a non-residual solvent for the cleaning of bearing surfaces offers the optimum lubrication condition. Prior to selecting a suitable industrial solvent, it is important to refer to any applicable federal, state, local or global regulations regarding their restrictions or proper use.

The most efficient non-residual solvents were CFC-113 and methyl chloroform. But, restrictions on ozone depleting chemicals stop the use of these solvent types. In this case, the best allowable no residual solvent must be used.

The application criteria, along with the degree of contamination, will determine the extent of cleaning and whether multiple cleanings or ultrasonic cleaning is necessary.

As the cleaned parts dry, they become prone to atmospheric corrosion. If immediate lubrication is not possible, the parts should be coated with a dispersion of the intended lubricant prior to storage. Even if the bearings are immediately lubricated, the “non-lubricated” surfaces are still prone to corrosion. Hence, it is advisable to apply a light anti-corrosion coating to these bearing surfaces after lubrication.

Electromechanics: The Future Of Engineering Degree

Mechanical engineering, to mention, is one of the most diverse engineering majors. Once you are a mechanical engineer, you can enter a variety of different professions.

Mechanical engineering is one of the most diverse engineering majors. Mechanical engineers works in heating and air conditioning (HVAC), automotive, aviation, automation, assembly work, civil construction, and medical engineering. This is as many disciplines fall under mechanical engineering

Fluid mechanics include HVAC, aviation, environmental, and medical devices. Statics and dynamics include civil construction and part design. Industrial classes like robotics, machining, and CAD applying to world of manufacture and automation. Mechanical engineering opens gateway, to several industries.

To mention, the future lies within the world of electromechanical engineering.

Professor Moderick Greenfield of Eastern Michigan University wrote a paper in 2009 in which he called for a new type of engineering major. According to Professor Greenfield, “The future proposed Bachelor of Science in Electromechanical Engineering Technology will give majors with a strong background in electronics design and mechanical systems.

The future of engineering lies in the combination of electrical and mechanical engineering into electro mechanics.

The future industry is of the advanced mechanics.

According to the University of Pennsylvania, its Bachelor of Science electro mechanics program is one of the five schools in the nation that offer joint electrical and mechanical engineering in a bachelor degree program. The university states that program is a direct response “to a growing demand from industrial and consulting companies for engineering staff members with a wide range of technical knowledge.” The program provides graduates knowledge and skills to design, operate, and manage electromechanical systems, mainly those systems that are automated.

The University of Strathclyde in Scotland says that students with an electromechanical engineering degree will work in industries such as energy generation, hybrid petro/electrical vehicles, advanced aircraft design, satellite technology, robotic systems, and sustainable environmental technology. Some of the classes under the bachelor degree includes:

Principles of Electrical

Heat & flow

Design & manufacturing

Digital electronic systems

Flight & space transport

Alternative sources of energy

CAD

Electromechanics does not appear like the best step forward, but rather the most logical one. As electronic equipment and devices get more or less integrated into our daily lives, it really makes sense that mechanical engineers learn how to program these electrical devices. The vice versa also holds true. Electrical engineers will start creating equipment for mechanical engineers for use. They must know how to design perfectly for the users. The degree of electro mechanics is an advantage for both sides.
