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 …

Anti Lock Braking system vs Electronic Stability Program – Working

Anti Skid Braking System or ABS

While driving a vehicle, the primary concern is the safety of the passengers. The safety depends on the reflex and the driving habits of the driver. But sometimes, the physical environment causes some threats like skidding, under steer, over steer etc. This problem is eliminated by the use of automobile safety systems like Anti-locking braking …

Flywheel Design Calculation – Simplified

Flywheel Design

What is a flywheel? A flywheel used in machines acts as a reservoir to store energy when the supply of energy is excess and the same is released when the requirement arises i.e. its primary function is to sort out variations in the speed of a shaft which are caused due to torque fluctuations. In …

Kinetic Energy Recovery System – How it Works

Electrical Kinetic Energy Recovery System

While driving a vehicle, the speed of the vehicle is not always constant. We will have to apply brakes as and when required. While applying brakes the kinetic energy of the vehicle is reduced.   As we all know that energy can neither be created nor destroyed, the kinetic energy is converted into non-recoverable energy …
