We have already discussed how to design hydraulic cylinder piston.
In this sizing calculation tutorial we will see how to design hydraulic cylinder. Industrial hydraulic cylinder is an example of a typical thick cylinder.
Thick cylinder vs. thin … Read the rest
What is hydraulic cylinder?
The hydraulic cylinder is a device that converts the energy of fluid into mechanical energy. The fluid is pumped into the cylinder by means of a pump and it can be used to move a load. … Read the rest
In first part of the flywheel design calculation tutorial example, we saw about calculating required mass moment of inertia for a particular application.
Flywheel design doesn’t stop with that. Its size, shape and material density / mass and maximum … Read the rest
What is a bolt?
A bolt is an externally threaded fastener which is primarily used as a bolted joint in application with a nut.

Unthreaded portion of the bolt is called shank. Usually the shank portion … Read the rest
What is a flywheel?
A flywheel used in machines acts as a reservoir to store energy when the supply of energy is excess and the same is released when the requirement arises i.e. its primary function is to sort out … Read the rest
While driving a vehicle, the speed of the vehicle is not always constant. We will have to apply brakes as and when required. While applying brakes the kinetic energy of the vehicle is reduced.
As we all know that … Read the rest
Wind energy is a renewable energy source obtained from nature and is converted to either electrical energy or mechanical energy depending on the need and is one of the fastest growing renewable energy resources.
Many will amazed to hear … Read the rest
As a design engineer, you must at least know the following few national and international codes and standards of mechanical engineering, if not more:
American Society of Mechanical Engineer or ASME Y 14.5 is most widely … Read the rest
Do you feel uncomfortable reading those shaft drawings with diameter values followed by the symbols like h8 or g5?
These symbols are combination of fundamental or basic deviation symbol and tolerance grades IT numbers and follows DIN ISO 286 … Read the rest
Reading the drawings with fundamental deviation (FD) symbols (like g, h or G, H etc) and IT grades will require ISO FD table and DIN ISO 286 fundamental or standard tolerance table.
By the way, the ISO 286 standard is … Read the rest
