Nominal and Metric Pipe Size Chart

Standard Pipe Size Table

Wall thickness of pipes available in different standard schedules (SCH.) for NPS (Nominal Pipe Size in “inch”) as well as DN (Diameter Nominal in “mm”) are shown in below chart. The wall thickness unit shown in the table without bracket is in metric system i.e., millimetres (mm)  , the British equivalents dimensional conversion i.e., inch …

Hydraulic Cylinder Design Calculation with Example

Thick Cylinder Typical Radial and Circumferential Forces

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 cylinder Cylinders in mechanical design are broadly classified into two categories: Thin wall cylinder (Ri : …

How to Calculate Piston Size Required for Designing a Hydraulic Cylinder

Block Diagram for Working of Hydraulic Cylinder

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. The size of the cylinder determines the amount of load that can be handled by …

Simplified Flywheel Design Calculation Example – Part2

Flywheel Design Critical Dimensions

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 stresses are also to be taken into account while designing a flywheel. Which we will discuss …

7 Steps of Manufacturing Process for Bolts Screws and Stud Fasteners

Typical Bolt Fastener

What is a bolt? A bolt is an externally threaded fastener which is primarily used as a bolted joint in application with a nut. Image source: Wiki   Unthreaded portion of the bolt is called shank. Usually the shank portion is not threaded because it acts as a dowel between two components acting against shearing …
