2018-19 Engineering Challenge: Monster Effects

– Oh, hello! – You’re here just in time. We could use your help explaining this season’s Engineering Challenge, – [Both] Monster Effects! – For this Challenge, your team will design and build a structure […] Read More

Steam trains, bridges and potential catastrophe

It’s a magnificent bridge. But it’s quite easy to design a bridge if the span’s quite short and the load it’s carrying is almost negligible. But it’s a lot harder if the bridge is longer […] Read More

Area Moment of Inertia of a Wide-Flange Beam
Area Moment of Inertia of a Wide-Flange Beam

Let’s calculate the moment of inertia for a wide flange beam. In this case I have chosen a beam that is known as a W12 X 87. The W stands for wide flange. The twelve […] Read More

PlanarDL Two Axis, Mechanical Bearing, Linear-Motor Stage

Aerotech’s PlanarDL is an integrated low-profile XY motor stage with superior planar performance. With straightness performance to +/- 0.4 microns and flatness to +/-1 micron, images taken of profiled surfaces show amazing detail of critical […] Read More

Bearing
Bearing

let us learn about the term Bearing. A bearing is a machine element that constrains relative motion to only the desired motion, and reduces friction between moving parts. The design of the bearing may, for […] Read More

How Ball Bearings Work (Engineering)

– [Instructor] So this is the final lesson in this part of the course covering ball bearings. Let’s do a recap on some of the things that we have learned. The first thing I’m going […] Read More

Friction Bearing
Friction Bearing

Another place you can deal with friction applications is in a journal bearing. So any time you have any axle going through something like the bearing and it’s spinning, we can ask the question: What […] Read More
