    UCLA or UMN for graduate energy study/research

    I should also add that the ones that got the fellowship did research with the same professor during their undergrad. If you want to still do research as a grad student, you still can. It may or may not count for anything, but I've seen rules bent several times. They may pay you or they may not...

    UCLA or UMN for graduate energy study/research

    I know a few that are doing the thesis option for the M.S.; however, they did their undergrad at UCLA. Therefore it was somewhat easy for them to get fellowships since they already knew the professor for some time. From what I've heard, most of the professors don't want to work with M.S...

    UCLA or UMN for graduate energy study/research

    I'm a grad student in the ME program a UCLA. I think we have a pretty good program in terms of Fluids, Heat Transfer, and Thermodynamics. The only problem is the budget cuts are really hurting us. Therefore class sizes are getting much bigger for the grad classes, and some grad classes (not the...

    Unknown DC motor Specifications

    It's a DC motor. I'll post what was engraved on the motor on monday. I put the motor in my schools machine shop for storage, and they're not open on the weekend.... Also I'll check if they have a dynometer that I can check out.

    Unknown DC motor Specifications

    Me and another person were rummaging through one of my colleges labs looking for usable parts for my groups product design course. We found this medium size motor that weighed about 2-3 pounds. The problem is that there were no stickers at all that indicated its specifications. There were a few...

    Anyone using the GSL 1300X Furnace by MTI Corp?

    My lab just bought the GSL1300-40X Desktop Alumina Tube Furnace from MTI recently. This thing has been a total headache to install and operate. The lab manager was totally confused about the wiring. The instructions were obviously written by someone who did not speak English well. Then there was...

    Fluid Mechanics Forces on Curved Surfaces

    Why are we looking at it from the side? I'm just confused on how these projected areas should look like. I thought we always just look at it from the top view like a plan view, but in this case its the side?! btw The forces weren't given, just the figure on the top. I just cut and pasted...

    Fluid Mechanics Forces on Curved Surfaces

    Not really a hw problem, but I'm having a hard time with this section. It's mostly dealing with the horizontal component of the force. This is from my book, Fluid Mechanics by frank m white 5 th ed, "The horizontal component of force on a curved surafce equals the force on the plane area...
