    ANSYS offers engineering simulation solution sets in engineering simulation that a design process requires. Companies in a wide variety of industries use ANSYS software. The tools put a virtual product through a rigorous testing procedure (such as crashing a car into a brick wall, or running for several years on a tarmac road) before it becomes a physical object. This pdf gives good start to understand and learn ANSYS

    Selection of material is an important aspect for manufacturing industries . The quality of product is highly depends upon its material properties. These properties are used to distinguish materials from each other. For Example: A harder material is used to make tools.A ductile material is used to draw wires. So the knowledge of mechanical properties of material is desirable for any mechanical student or for any person belongs to mechanical industries. This post brings top 18 mechanical properties. Mechanical properties of material: There are mainly two types of materials. First one is metal and other one is non metals. Metals are classified into two types : Ferrous metals and Non-ferrous metals. Ferrous metals mainly consist iron with comparatively small addition of other materials. It includes iron and its alloy such as cast iron, steel, HSS etc. Ferrous metals are widely used in mechanical industries for its various advantages. Nonferrous metals contain little or no iron. It includes aluminum, magnesium, copper, zinc etc. Most Mechanical properties are associated with metals. These are #1. Strength: The ability of material to withstand load without failure is known as strength. If a material can bear more load, it means it has more strength. Strength of any material mainly depends on type of loading and deformation before fracture. According to loading types, strength can be classified into three types. a. Tensile strength: b. Compressive strength: 3. Shear strength: According to the deformation before fracture, strength can be classified into three types. a. Elastic strength: b. Yield strength: c. Ultimate strength: #2. Homogeneity: If a material has same properties throughout its geometry, known as homogeneous material and the property is known as homogeneity. It is an ideal situation but practically no material is homogeneous. #3. Isotropy: A material which has same elastic properties along its all loading direction known as isotropic material. #4. Anisotropy: A material which exhibits different elastic properties in different loading direction known as an-isotropic material. #5. Elasticity: If a material regain its original dimension after removal of load, it is known as elastic material and the property by virtue of which it regains its original shape is known as elasticity. Every material possess some elasticity. It is measure as the ratio of stress to strain under elastic limit. #6. Plasticity: The ability of material to undergo some degree of permanent deformation without failure after removal of load is known as plasticity. This property is used for shaping material by metal working. It is mainly depends on temperature and elastic strength of material. #7. Ductility: Ductility is a property by virtue of which metal can be drawn into wires. It can also define as a property which permits permanent deformation before fracture under tensile loading. The amount of permanent deformation (measure in percentage elongation) decides either the material is ductile or not. Percentage elongation = (Final Gauge Length – Original Gauge Length )*100/ Original Gauge Length If the percentage elongation is greater than 5% in a gauge length 50 mm, the material is ductile and if it less than 5% it is not. #8. Brittleness: Brittleness is a property by virtue of which, a material will fail under loading without significant change in dimension. Glass and cast iron are well known brittle materials. #9. Stiffness: The ability of material to resist elastic deformation or deflection during loading, known as stiffness. A material which offers small change in dimension during loading is more stiffer. For example steel is stiffer than aluminum. #10. Hardness: The property of a material to resist penetration is known as hardness. It is an ability to resist scratching, abrasion or cutting. It is also define as an ability to resist fracture under point loading. #11. Toughness: Toughness is defined as an ability to withstand with plastic or elastic deformation without failure. It is defined as the amount of energy absorbed before actual fracture. #12. Malleability: A property by virtue of which a metal can flatten into thin sheets, known as malleability. It is also define as a property which permits plastic deformation under compression loading. #13. Machinability: A property by virtue of which a material can be cut easily. #14. Damping: The ability of metal to dissipate the energy of vibration or cyclic stress is called damping. Cast iron has good damping property, that’s why most of machines body made by cast iron. #15. Creep: The slow and progressive change in dimension of a material under influence of its safe working stress for long time is known as creep. Creep is mainly depend on time and temperature. The maximum amount of stress under which a material withstand during infinite time is known as creep strength. #16. Resilience: The amount of energy absorb under elastic limit during loading is called resilience. The maximum amount of the energy absorb under elastic limit is called proof resilience. #17. Fatigue Strength: The failure of a work piece under cyclic load or repeated load below its ultimate limit is known as fatigue. The maximum amount of cyclic load which a work piece can bear for infinite number of cycle is called fatigue strength. Fatigue strength is also depend on work piece shape, geometry, surface finish etc. #18. Embrittlement: The loss of ductility of a metal caused by physical or chemical changes, which make it brittle, is called embrittlement.

    Hi everyone, I am an electrical enginner with very little knowledge about the usage of gears and how to calculate the torque and gear ratio, so I am looking for help here. I have the following problem at work. A long circular tube (3 meters) is placed vertically and inside it about 30 cm from the top openning there is a half of a disc attached to a metal rode. I want to rotate the semicircle precisely with a stepper motor, the idea is to have a gear placed at the shaft of the motor, which rotates a bigger gear, which the semicircle is attached to by a rode. The picture I uploaded illustrates the setup of the motor and gears I want to use. Just try to imagine a rode being attached to the bigger gear and at the end of the rode there is a semicircle. Now the real question, the semicircle with the rode weigh about 500 grams, I have no idea how to choose the right torque for the motor and how to calculate the number of teeth and size of the gears I want to use to be able to rotate the object. Thanks in advance

    There are 3 reasons for this point. "Why Tractors have vertical exhaust in the front" 1. Design level reason : Tractor is made of 2 piece construction. The rear portion (with the rear axle and drive line) can be seperated from the front portion (with engine, transmission). Hence, the silencer and exhaust tail pipe has to be kept along with the front part of the tractor. If the exhaust was to be facing the ground, then the hot gas will blow on the Driver's legs and will cause uncomfort for the user. Hence, the exhaust gas is sent vertically upward. 2. Functional level reason : If Silencer has to be placed facing the rear, (as in car), then the silencer has to be kept at the bottom. If the exhaust tail pipe is kept at a lower level, the fast blowing exhaust gas will lift up the loose sand in the crop field, now, this has multiple negative impacts 2.1. Top layer of any crop field is the fertile sand, which will get blown-off if tractor silencer is fitted like in cars. If this is allowed, every time, tractor is used, the crop field will loose its fertile sand and ultimately will become barren land. 2.2. Another effect, is these blown-off loose sand, will fall and settle on the crops, forming a layer which will cover the crop and thus stopping the Photosynthesis process of the crops. So the crop yield will be badly affected 3. Yes, keeping the silencer and tail pipe at the bottom will have other packaging issue, where, due to the articulation in crop fields, there is every chance of the silencer getting damaged due to ground hits. By the way , I m in Automobile Service Industry for the last 12 years.

    The car requires aesthetic look so you cant fit an exhaust in front of the car and it disturbs the view of the driver but in tractor aesthetic is not much worried compared to performance and the exhaust wont disturb much the view of the driver

    ABS- it allows the brakes to be applied while maintaining a tractive contact with the road. it does not allow the wheels to be stopped a once. if it was stopped at once due to inertia(because of the speed with which it comes), the vehicles skids. it is more prominent in low friction surfaces like on ice, wet road etc. In ABS the wheels are not stopped at once. It grips the disc mounted on the wheel. the disc is pressed and released with a gap of nanoseconds. thus the driver do not actually feel it. It increases the braking distance. EBD- It is an electronic device that is mounted on the vehicle, that actually varies the amount of braking force on each wheel depending upon the road conditions. if one wheel is on a high friction surface less braking force is required on that wheel. thus by sensing the road conditions the amount of brake force is varied.

    The main goal of using Antilock breaking system is to the wheels of car from skidding.and it also avoid the wear of tyre.where as EBD controls the braking on wheels

    Difference between first angle and third angle method of projection: 1) In First angle method Object is assumed to be placed in First quadrant whereas in third angle method of projection, Object is assumed to be placed in third quadrant. 2) In First angle method Object lies between the projection screen and observer whereas in third angle method of projection, projection screen lies between the object and observer. 3) As a result, In First angle method, View from left is projected on right side and view from right is projected on left side.In third angle method, View from left is projected on left side and view from right is projected on right side. Detailed Explaination is shown in Image... I think that First angle method is a better practice and as a result it is mostly preferred. ( Projection screen lies rear to the object). The symbol of first and third angle projections itself explains their significance. Symbol of first and third angle method of projection indicates a frustum of cone which is led horizontally on the surface. In case of first angle method of projection, left view of frustum of cone is displayed on right side and in case of first angle method of projection, left view of frustum of cone is displayed on left side.

    Drafting is essentially drawing a picture, whether in 2D or 3D, and providing dimensions and notes. A drafter may do some "catalog engineering," (selecting parts such as bearings, seals, etc. from a catalog), but drafters do not use any truly advanced mathematics (as a rule). Design, on the other hand, may be making a sketch, but it is also providing the analysis to justify the selection of component sizes (based on stress, deflection, fatigue, etc.), determination of system dynamic response and assuring that criteria are met, etc. Design goes much, much further than drafting.
