  1. A brake which uses air as a working fluid is known as pneumatic brake. The system actuated to apply this phenomenon is know as pneumatic brake system. An pneumatic brake system or a compressed air brake system is a type of friction brake for vehicles in which compressed air pressing on a piston is used to apply the pressure to the brake pad needed to stop the vehicle. Construction of pneumatic braking system The simplest air brake system consists of An air compressor A brake valve series of brake chambers at the wheels unloader valve A pressure gauge and a safety valve and an air reservoir. These are all connected by tubes. Some air braking systems may have additional components such as stop light switch low pressure indicator An air supply valve to supply air for tyre inflation A quick release air quickly from the front brake chambers when the brake pedal is released A limiting valve for limiting the maximum pressure in the front brake chambers and a relay valve to help in quick admission and release of air from the rear brake chambers. Working of pneumatic braking system The air compressor operated by the engine forces air at a pressure of 9-10 kscm (kilo standard cubic meters) through the water and oil separator to the air reservoir. The air pressure in the reservoir is indicated by a pressure gauge. The reservoir contains enough compressed air for several braking operations. From the reservoir the air is supplied to the brake valve. As long as brake pedal is not depressed, brake valves stop the passage of air to brake chambers and there is no braking effect. When the brake pedal is depressed, the brake valves varies its position and compressed air is admitted into the wheel brake chambers. In the chambers the air acts upon flexible diaphragms, moves them the pushes out the rods connected with the levers of the brake gear cams. The cams turn and separate the shoes thus braking the wheels. When the brake pedal is released, the supply of compressed air is cut off from the brake chambers and they are connected to the atmosphere. The pressure in the chambers drops, the brake shoes are returned to their initial position and the wheels run free. The brake valve is equipped with a servo mechanism which ensures that the braking force on the shoes is proportional to the force applied to the pedal. Besides the valve imparts a relative reaction to the movement of the pedal so that the driver can sense the degree of brake application. IMAGE SOURCE :- google

    Thank you so much for your review. I will take care of it next time
  4. Any device which can convert heat energy of fuel into mechanical energy is known as engine or heat engine. Engine is widely used in automobile industries or we can say that engine is the heart of an automobile. Basically engine may be classified into two types. 1. External combustion (E.C.) Engine 2. Internal Combustion (I.C.) Engine Types of Engine: 1. External combustion (E.C.) Engine It is an engine in which combustion of fuel take place outside of the engine. In this type of engine heat, which is generated by burning of fuel is use to convert the water or other low boiling temperature fluid into steam. This high pressure steam used to rotate a turbine. In this engine we can use all solid, liquid and gases fuel. These engines are generally used in driving locomotive, ships, generation of electric power etc. Advantages of E.C. engine- In these engines starting torque is generally high. Because of external combustion we can use cheaper fuels as well as solid fuel. They are more flexible compare to internal combustion engines. 2. Internal Combustion (I.C.) Engine It is an engine in which combustion of fuel take place inside the engine. When the fuel burns inside the engine cylinder, it generates a high temperature and pressure. This high pressure force is exerted on the piston (A device which free to moves inside the cylinder and transmit the pressure force to crank by use of connecting rod), which used to rotate the wheels of vehicle. In these engines we can use only gases and high volatile fuel like petrol, diesel. These engines are generally used in automobile industries, generation of electric power etc. Advantages of I.C. engine- It has overall high efficiency over E.C. engine. These engines are compact and required less space. Initial cost of I.C. engine is lower than E.C. engine. This engine easily starts in cold because of it uses high volatile fuel. Types of I.C. Engine I.C. engine is widely used in automobile industries so it is also known as automobile engine. An automobile engine may be classified in many manners. Today I am going to tell you some important classification of an automobile engine. According to number of stroke: 1. Two Stroke Engine In a two stroke engine a piston moves one time up and down inside the cylinder and complete one crankshaft revolution during single time of fuel burn. This type of engine has high torque compare to four stroke engine. These are generally used in scooters, pumping sets etc. 2 Four Stroke Engine . In a four stroke engine piston moves two times up and down inside the cylinder and complete two crankshaft revolutions during single time of fuel burn. This type of engines has high average compare to two stroke engine. These are generally used in bikes, cars, truck etc. According to design of engine: 1. Reciprocating engine (piston engine) In reciprocating engine the pressure force generate by combustion of fuel exerted on the piston (A device which free to move in reciprocation inside the cylinder). So the piston starts reciprocating motion (too and fro motion). This reciprocating motion converts into rotary motion by use of crank shaft. So the crank shaft starts to rotate and rotate the wheels of vehicle. These are generally used in all automobile. 2. Rotary engine (Wankel engine) In rotary engine there is a rotor which frees to rotate. The pressure force generate by burning of fuel is exerted on this rotor so the rotor rotate and starts to rotate the wheels of vehicle. This engine is developed by Wankel in 1957. This engine is not used in automobile in present days. According to fuel used: 1. Diesel engine These engines use diesel as the fuel. These are used in trucks, buses, cars etc. 2. Petrol engine These engines use petrol as the fuel. These are used in bikes, sport cars, luxury cars etc. 3. Gas engine These engines use CNG and LPG as the fuel. These are used in some light motor vehicles. 4. Electric engine It is eco-friendly engine. It doesn’t use any fuel to burn. It uses electric energy to rotate wheel. According to method of ignition: 1. Compression ignition engine In these types of engines, there is no extra equipment to burn the fuel. In these engines burning of fuel starts due to temperature rise during compression of air. So it is known as compression ignition engine. 2. Spark ignition engine In these types of engines, ignition of fuel start by the spark, generate inside the cylinder by some extra equipment. So it is known as spark ignition engine. According to number of cylinder: 1. Single cylinder engine In this type of engines have only one cylinder and one piston connected to the crank shaft. 2. Multi-cylinder engine In this type of engines have more than one cylinder and piston connected to the crank shaft. According to arrangement of cylinder: 1. In-line engine In this type of engines, cylinders are positioned in a straight line one behind the other along the length of the crankshaft. 2. V-type engine An engine with two cylinder banks inclined at an angle to each other and with one crankshaft known as V-type engine. 3. Opposed cylinder engine An engine with two cylinders banks opposite to each other on a single crankshaft (V-type engine with 180o angle between banks). 4. W-type engine An engine same as V-type engine except with three banks of cylinders on the same crankshaft known as W-type engine. 5. Opposite piston engine In this type of engine there are two pistons in each cylinder with the combustion chamber in the center between the pistons. In this engine a single combustion process causes two power strokes, at the same time. 6. Radial engine It is an engine with pistons positioned in circular plane around the central crankshaft. The connecting rods of pistons are connected to a master rod which, in turn, connected to the crankshaft. According to air intake process: 1. Naturally aspirated In this types of engine intake of air into cylinder occur by the atmospheric pressure. 2. Supercharged engine In this type of engine air intake pressure is increased by the compressor driven by the engine crankshaft. 3. Turbocharged engine In this type of engine intake air pressure is increase by use of turbine compressor driven by the exhaust gases of burning fuel.
  5. I want to know the main difference between CATIA and SOLIDWORKS to decide which one to learn.
  6. The boiler system comprises a feed-water system, steam system, and fuel system. The feed-water system supplies treated water to the boiler and regulate it automatically to meet the steam demand. Various valves and controls are provided to access for maintenance and monitoring. The steam system heats and vaporizes the feed water and controls steam produced in the boiler. Steam is directed through a piping system to the application. Throughout the system, steam pressure is regulated using valves and monitored with steam pressure gauges. The fuel system consists of all equipment used to supply of fuel to generate the necessary heat. The equipment required in the fuel system depends on the type of fuel used in the system. Boilers Classification: There are a large number of boiler designs, but boilers can be classified according to the following criteria: 1. According to Relative Passage of water and hot gases: Water Tube Boiler: A boiler in which the water flows through some small tubes which are surrounded by hot combustion gases, e.g., Babcock and Wilcox, Stirling, Benson boilers, etc. Fire-tube Boiler: The hot combustion gases pass through the boiler tubes, which are surrounded by water, e.g., Lancashire, Cochran, locomotive boilers, etc. 2. According to Water Circulation Arrangement: Natural Circulation: Water circulates in the boiler due to density difference of hot and water, e.g., Babcock and Wilcox boilers, Lancashire boilers, Cochran, locomotive boilers, etc. Forced Circulation: A water pump forces the water along its path, therefore, the steam generation rate increases, Eg: Benson, La Mont, Velox boilers, etc. 3. According to the Use: Stationary Boiler: These boilers are used for power plants or processes steam in plants. Portable Boiler: These are small units of mobile and are used for temporary uses at the sites. Locomotive: These are specially designed boilers. They produce steam to drive railway engines. Marine Boiler: These are used on ships. 4. According to Position of the Boilers: Horizontal, inclined or vertical boilers 5. According to the Position of Furnace Internally fired: The furnace is located inside the shell, e.g., Cochran, Lancashire boilers, etc. Externally fired: The furnace is located outside the boiler shell, e.g., Babcock and Wilcox, Stirling boilers, etc. 6. According to Pressure of steam generated Low-pressure boiler: a boiler which produces steam at a pressure of 15-20 bar is called a low-pressure boiler. This steam is used for process heating. Medium-pressure boiler: It has a working pressure of steam from 20 bars to 80 bars and is used for power generation or combined use of power generation and process heating. High-pressure boiler: It produces steam at a pressure of more than 80 bars. Sub-critical boiler: If a boiler produces steam at a pressure which is less than the critical pressure, it is called as a subcritical boiler. Supercritical boiler: These boilers provide steam at a pressure greater than the critical pressure. These boilers do not have an evaporator and the water directly flashes into steam, and thus they are called once through boilers. 7. According to charge in the furnace. Pulverized fuel, Supercharged fuel and Fluidized bed combustion boilers.
