Understanding a Lever system

Lever example 1

A lever is a basic device that consists of a beam or rigid rod pivoting at a fixed hinge, or fulcrum. It is used to apply force to a load and typically offers a mechanical advantage. A stiff body that can rotate about a point on itself is called a lever. The three types of […]

Common types of metals and their properties

types of metals

Metals are among the materials that are commonly used and are also the most extracted. Understanding the unique characteristics of each metal that is extracted can help you determine whether you are using it appropriately and which metals should be recycled and which should be scrapped. A metal is a substance that, when freshly produced, […]

Most common types of bolts and bolt heads

Types of bolt heads

There are many different head shapes for both screws and bolts. The design of these heads allows them to easily grasp the instruments needed to tighten them. A bolt is a long piece of metal used to attach items by screwing them into a nut. When you bolt anything to another object, you use a […]

Different types of furnaces 

industrial furnace

A furnace, often known as a heater, is a device that uses the combustion of a fuel source to produce thermal energy in a controlled manner. This thermal energy is used to heat rooms, buildings, and other structures. In addition, some are employed to process specific materials in industrial and commercial settings. It is mostly […]

 Understanding fiber reinforced plastic

fiber reinforced plastics

Today, the use of fiber-reinforced plastics in products and applications has dramatically high due to their various properties. They are relatively a new class of non-corrosive, high-strength, lightweight materials. The primary component is plastic which contains fibers such as glass (in fiberglass), carbon (in carbon fiber reinforced polymer), aramid, or basalt. Other fibers like paper, […]

Different types of metals and their classifications

types of metals

There are various types of metals out there suitable for specific applications. Even though metals are made by mining ore from within the earth. They are extracted from rocks in a large-scale industrial process. Leaving that aside, our purpose here is to discuss the different types of metals and their functions. But before that, different […]

Understanding the difference between metals and non-metals

metals and non-metals

Both metals and non-metals are very common materials that are widely used by humans. In fact, without these materials surviving would have been hard for us. They are different elements in the periodic table, which is why the topic needs to be treated for its clear differentiation. Today you’ll get to know the definition, types, […]

Understanding the various types of residual stress

residual stress of a material

In solid materials, residual stress is stresses that remain in them after their original cause of stress is removed. Residual stress can be useless and useful in a material. that is, it may be desirable or undesirable. Unintended residual stress in a material may cause it to fail prematurely, while it can be used in […]
