Simple Rankine Cycle - Processes with h-s Diagram

Simple Rankine Cycle – Processes with h-s Diagram

Simple Rankine cycle is an ideal vapour cycle. It plays a major role in steam power plants. This cycle is mainly based on the conversion of input heat energy into output power, using turbine. The working fluid at the inlet repeatedly undergoes change of phase and in successive operations, energy is transmitted and output power [...]

Water Jet Machining (WJM)

Water Jet Machining (WJM)

Water Jet Machining (WJM) is a mechanical energy based non-traditional machining process used to cut and machine soft and non-metallic materials. It involves the use of high velocity water jet to smoothly cut a soft workpiece. It is similar to Abrasive Jet Machining (AJM). In water jet machining, high velocity water jet is allowed to [...]

Automobile - Introduction and Classification

Automobile – Introduction and Classification

An automobile (or automotive) is a vehicle that is capable of propelling itself. Since seventeenth century, several attempts have been made to design and construct a practically operative automobile. Today, automobiles play an unimaginable role in the social, economic and industrial growth of any country. After the introduction of internal combustion engines, the Automobile industry has [...]

Process Parameters of Abrasive Jet Machining

Process Parameters of Abrasive Jet Machining

Process parameters of Abrasive Jet Maching (AJM) are factors that influence its Metal Removal Rate (MRR). In a machining process, Metal Removal Rate (MRR) is the volume of metal removed from a given workpiece in unit time. The following are some of the important process parameters of abrasive jet machining: Abrasive mass flow rate Nozzle [...]

Abrasive Jet Machining (AJM)

Abrasive Jet Machining (AJM)

Abrasive Jet Machining (AJM), also known as micro-abrasive blasting, is a mechanical energy based unconventional machining process used to remove unwanted material from a given workpiece. The process makes use of an abrasive jet with high velocity, to remove material and provide smooth surface finish to hard metallic workpieces. It is similar to Water Jet [...]
