When I convert the steel beams to concrete, do I transform the several different beams into a single piece of concrete in order to do the calculations to find the second moment of area of the beam or do I transform each beam seperately into a concrete piece?
Intuitively, t seems reasonable to...
Hi! This is my first post on here. I need to purchase an air cylinder, most likely hydraulic. The cylinder will have a forming die attached on the end and will be used to crimp two small stainless steel tubes together. The crimp will occur at an offset of .004 inches from each end of the tubes...
Hi everyone! Brand new here. I'm sorry if this isn't the right place to post this but I am terrible with math/calculating anything so I thought I would reach out and ask! No harm done, hopefully.
I'm building an 8' x 3' x 2" live edge walnut slab table and am trying to create some steel legs...
I work in a rolling mill that produces train rail tracks. But I'm experiencing some problems. The guards I use keep breaking.
So here is the scinario. The rail we make is 40kg per meter. With a total length of around 65m. When it goes thru the mill pressure is applied to it in...
I have found sources that state hardness can't be correlated to yield strength, but only to ultimate strength. Other sources state the opposite. Yet other sources claim you can do both with different equations.
Can someone direct me to a source that addresses my question, or addresses the...
Hello smart physicists!
I'm hoping to run a span of 124" for a pull up bar, with a support in the middle at the 62" point (so 3 supports total). I'm using the Rogue P-5V Pull-Up Bar Brackets (https://www.roguefitness.com/rogue-p-5v-garage-pullup-system). The brackets call for a tube with a...
Nice easy question for you all today:
I would like to know how the speed of sound in steel varies with temperature. A google search didnt reveal a great deal, so if a physicist could confirm the relationship, that would be much appreciated.
I know that: v = √shear modulus/density...
Hello, I work in a apparel manufacturing warehouse and i'm planning to upgrade the Jacket Hanger Racks to a rotatable conveyor. So I want to insert new Steel Pipes for hanging the Jackets which will rotate.
So, the length of the pipe is 370 cms / 12' 2", and the weight it will be holding is...
This is probably simple for an engineer, but I’m a zoologist and analytical chemist and so I would rather ask those who know.
I have camera traps out on the African bush, that are monitoring the responses of leopards to artificial scents. The cameras are in steel boxes to protect them from...
I'm in the process of calculating an axle diameter by using the bending moments which are created with the applied force on the end.
In order to design my axle to be efficient, I believe I need to use the following equation.
Sx = M/Fy
Sx being Plastic Modulus
Fy being Tensile strength of my...
For my physics class we have to show an example of bad physics in a movie. I am doing Mad Max 2: The road Warrior and the scene where the gyro captain crashes his ultralight helicopter but the helicopter is completely undamaged as he drives it later in the movie. I need to know what the force to...
First off, I am new to this forum.. However I wanted
To find out if anyone would be able to help me calculate
How much a steel bar (2 in. In diameter, 5 ft. Lengthwise)
Would be able to hold up without bending?
I'm looking for some help regarding magnetism and how it might work (or be fictionalized) in regards to a "magic" compass. I have two questions. Please excuse my complete scientific ignorance :)
In my story, our young hero has a compass. The compass needle just spins in endless...
Hi, I need to figure out how much weight a 5 foot steel pipe will support before becoming unsafe. I am building a series of out door pull up bars for my neighborhood as an eagle project. I need to buy the right pipe/tube that will be sturdy enough but not have too big of a diameter that you...
I recently moved to a new house with a small backyard/patio. It's roughly 25ft x 25ft, mostly concrete bordered by an L-shaped earth area. I'd like to place three hammock posts as shown in the first image.
We like to dream big and want these posts tall enough to support two hammocks...
I'have searched a lot but could not find latent heat for any kind of medium carbon steel for latent heat from solid to liquid and from liquid to gas. Also I want to know the corresponding melting point and boiling point for that know of steel.
Any link for a table would be greatly appreciated...
My project involves making a 5 ft*3 ft*4 ft (l*b*h) aluminium/stainless steel sheet metal box at the back of a slow moving pedal vehicle. There is no load on the sheet metal, except from small vibrations from road travel.
My question is: 1. What gauge of sheet metal thickness would be enough...
Approximately, what is the total mass of these materials that is contained in a "typical" Gen III or III+ PWR (e.g., EPR, AP1000...)?
1/ Zr alloy (fuel cladding and other assembly components)?
2/ Ag-In-Cd alloy (control rods)?
3/ Gd (burnable neutron absorber)?
4/ Ni-based alloys?
If I have a large steel box that is 27ft x 8ft x 8ft and has 7 in thick walls with 4 non-insulated windows each 1ft by 1ft, where does heat escape from inside the box, is it the windows and the walls? So if the inside temperature needs to be 72 F and the outside air is 0 F how much heat would...
I want to ask the shoulders that are used on railway tracks concrete sleepers, should they be forged or ductile cast and why?
If someone can post an article it'll be great.
Thank You for your help and support.
I want to ask which of the cast steels or forged steels provide with better shock absorption?
The component has to be used in the under chassis of heavy trucks in bumpy roads.
Can anyone help me with that?
I am confused with casting grades of different steel,for example 316 SS has casting grade CF8M.
What does it mean and where can i find grades of other materials as well like 316L, 304L. 304, CS, etc.
Any data sheet showing grades for every material will be helpful.
For my engineering project for college I am designing a rotating table/steel frame structure for supporting a mild steel panel which weighs 180kg. My previous experience with UDL's has only been in using a 2D beam like situation to calculate how the load is spread, bending of the beam and...
I need to make a steel beam ( or aluminum) of square tube ( box beam) 10 feet long with a balance point 2 feet from one end. The short end will have 60 lbs on it and the long end will have 30 lbs. how thick of a wall will the square tube need to be to hold the static load?
Does anyone have an approximate idea of the relative cost of the following allows / metals:
2205 Duplex Steel
6Mo (Super Austentic Stainless Steel)
SS316L (just as a convenient reference price)
Of course, I'm not looking for accuracy just approximate price ratios...
Wondering if anyone knows how to create pitting in steel with acid as the only method I know takes about 20 years and burying steel in the ground, not very ideal so was looking towards acid as I've heard of other people using it as an oxidizing agent to create corrosion on steel but...
