...Mechanics Introduction Earth is extremely rich in soil and minerals and the terrain we find is of different types and kinds. Soil is made up of three components: solid particles, air, and water. The particles are classified by size as clay, silt, sand, gravel, cobbles, or boulders. The amount of air and water within a sample of soil affects its behavior. The sizes and types of particles that constitute a particular soil affect its properties and thus its load-carrying ability and compressibility. However the soil we find is hardly perfect for any kind of construction before any steps are taken to harden the soil. This is usually because soil is by natural forces in tension...

...Mechanics— Verification of Bernoulli’s Equation The behavior of the laminar fluid motion along a converging-diverging tube of known cross-sectional area, at different flow rates, is investigated, and the mass as well as energy conservation laws are verified in this experiment. Another objective of performing it is to measure the loss of energy due to viscous resistance to the fluid the motion in case of higher flow rates. The results obtained from the experiment not only verify the basic laws and characteristics of a fluid in motion, but also determines the losses incurred in energy due to resistive forces.

...Mechanics—Bernoulli’s Equation Using the conservation laws of streamline motion of fluid, we investigate the behavior of the fluid motion along a converging-diverging tube of known cross-sectional area, at different flow rates. The energy lost as a result of viscous resistance of the fluid the motion when the flow rate increases, may also be measured as Head Lost.

...Mechanics Introduction Fluid flowing in pipes is usually turbulent. The flow is considered turbulent if the Reynolds value is greater than 4000. During the turbulent flow, the velocity distribution is relatively the same (or uniform) and the velocity profile is flatter in comparison to the laminar flow. It is important to note that there are pressure fluctuations and irregular velocity in turbulent flow. In turbulent flow, fluctuations in velocity influence the mean motion such that it causes additional shear resistance to the flow. The turbulent shear stress is composed of shear stress and viscous shear stress generated because of turbulence (Sawhney 2011, p629). Fluid flowing... ?Head Loss Fluid...

...Mechanics (a) Describe with the use of suitable diagrams the critical strength of soil. Critical is a condition that occurs in the soil where shear distortions develop without effective stress, void ratio and deviatoric stress changes (Schofield 1998). As such, soil and associated granular materials attain a critical state after they get a continuous distorted, which makes them assume frictional fluid flow (see figure 1). As such, the maximum shear stress, which the soil can bear, gives the shear strength of the soil. Excess shear stress results in the failure of the soil, which may occur mostly because of catastrophic loading on the material (see figure 2). The soil attains a critical state...

Unlike other frictional forces experienced in moving objects, drag forces normally remain fully dependent on velocity of objects. These forces have been identified as reducing velocity of objects moving within fluids depending on the size of objects. Various types of drag exist when studying drag resulting from movement of physical bodies within fluids. The different types of drags are as discussed below.

Introduction
Hydraulic structures are basically constructed to direct and manage water flow. The following deals with the design considerations of dams and reservoirs. Dams are constructed to obstruct and divert the natural flow of water. A reservoir is an artificial lake in existence because of dam construction. The construction and operation of these hydraulic structures involves numerous socio-economic factors.

...Given: bore - D 60 mm ; L = 240 mm ; μ = 2.20 mPa*s ρ = 870 kg/m3 (a) mean velo vm = = =0.3193 m/s
(b) Since 1 cp ≡ 1 mPa*s ≡ 0.001
--- μ = 2.20 mPa*s * = 0.0022 then,
NRe = = = 202.03
Therefore, based on this value, the flow is LAMINAR!
(c) From the Moody chart,

...mechanism is a feasible option. The next option... ?The design was produced using SolidWorks The larger cylinder was created as an extruded boss with the initially provided dimensions. After this the smaller cylinder was created using an extruded boss with the provided dimensions. The connecting section was created using an extruded boss as well with the dimensions provided. A fillet was added to the sections indicated using the fillet feature with a uniform radius of 3 mm. A drawing was then generated for the final geometry which is shown below along with the dimensions. After this the model was exported as a *.STEP file for analysis in ALGOR FEA. After the model was imported to ALGOR FEA the log was...

...Mechanics The first significant application of fluid mechanics is in aerodynamics. It involves the studyof performance of air-breathing rockets, rotors, propellers, and engines, and the general aerodynamic properties of vehicles. Computational fluid dynamics has evolved as a powerful tool for the prediction of aerodynamic performance and offering an insight into sophisticated fluid dynamic phenomena. Techniques used for solving the various types of unsteady, 3D Navier-Stokes equations are created and applied to fluid flows. It is important to note that the work depends on a number of computational facilities whose abilities are continually expanded... Three Most Significant Applications of Fluid...

Cash 6000
Capital 6000
Hence both sides of the equation would increase by 6000 but there would be no net affect
2) The Cats and Dogs Company borrowed $2,000 from the bank on March 1. The note is a 1-year, 12% note, with both principal and interest to be repaid on February 28 of next year
Cash 2000
Notes Payable 2000
Interest Expense 20
Interest Payable 20
The first entry would increase both sides by 2000 but would cause no net affect. The second entry would increase the liabilities by 20

...Mechanical Testing of Cancerous Bone This was a practical experiment, in which the cancerous bone considered as rigorous porous materials was tested mechanically with the use of the ASTM standard.This was done with a view to finding out if stiffness and strength depended on the bone density, testing conditions, or animal species, an experiment was set up. Using the ASTM testing standard to determine weights for 24 samples of the bones from the pig and cow it was observed that the general pattern of stress against strain looked similar to that shown in the ASTM standard for testing rigid cellular plastics. Therefore, the plotting of stress curves was done....

With the advent of time there has been a considerable improvement on entertainment front. There was a time when people used to wait agonizingly for the stipulated time for their favourite T.V serial or soap and that too once in a week. That continued for some years, only to be added with more variety and panache so as to make people addict towards the ‘IDIOT BOX’.

... Design Of a Load Support System Which Possesses a Two Stage Stiffness Character Introduction The system comprises two main components; one experience pure torsion,member AB. The other experience bending moments, member BC. Up to a load T of 5.0KN the deflection of C will be due to the CHS member AB and bending of the RHS beam BC at 5.0KN,at 5.0KN the outrigger will bear against rigid stops which prevent the CHS from twisting any further . As the load, T increases from 5KN to 6.4KN the beam section BC continues to bend resulting in further downward deflection of C, but since there is no longer any contribution to this deflection from twisting of AB, the additional deflection will be much...
