The entertainment industry relies on "entertainment engineers," e.g. mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, and others for standards https://www.smpte.org. Perhaps more importantly, the movie industry requires Licensed Mechanical Engineers to safely innovate and amaze. Film sets are complex physical productions, most of which are not digital special effects. The film industry utilizes Licensed Mechanical Engineers to create complex props and various special effects that move, exploded, burn, and fly. The mechanical engineers specializes in designing and making a wide range of mechanical devices that fulfill a specific purpose for the film or set they are engaged, or modify available technology to quickly achieve [...]
A Mechanical Engineer Designs Ways to Give Your Canine Friend a Lift Up A Mechanical Engineer designs ways to give your "Best Friend" easy access to your vehicle and different higher surfaces. Read more to find out what kind of options are available for your dog. A properly sized and installed dog ramp eases a dog's boarding dilemmas. Ramps are divided into several categories: folding, telescoping, fixed, moveable and those that are stored under the back bumper of a car. This article describes the different types of dog ramps available and the engineering required to properly design them. [...]
Fig. 1 Triple HEPA Filter Licensed Mechanical Engineers Design and Model Smoke Purification Equipment Fires across the country, including Oregon, Montana, Idaho, Washington, and especially in California consume thousands of acres of forests, homes and businesses, therefore, smoke-filled skies make air-purifiers a necessity. Consequently, smoke from a wildfire can travel hundreds of miles to infiltrate homes and offices. A licensed Mechanical Engineer ( Licensed Mechanical Engineer ) models, develops and tests smoke and particle filters (Fig. 1) to effectively, remove smoke from the air in your home or workplace. Subsequently, we added air filters to our offices in the [...]
Wind Load Comparison between CFD and ASCE 7 for Rooftop shapes Welcome back to our blog series on the phenomenon called Wind Load CFD Modeling and how it affects civil and mechanical engineers. Wind Load is the force that blowing wind exerts on any device or structure that extends above ground level. After an initial introduction to the factors that affect wind load on an object, I compared three different sets of wind load calculation methods using three simple objects, hypothetically placed on a 100-foot-tall building. Starting with generic drag equation for the first equation, added two modification coefficients [...]
Part 1 of our Wind Load Series “Wind load” is a calculated value representing the total force on a structure or object cause by pressure from wind moving over it. In this blog series, we will discuss different methods for wind load calculations, the factors that influence its magnitude, and the effects a high wind load can have on a structure. Wind load is most commonly addressed by civil and structural engineers when designing buildings, but mechanical engineers can encounter the effect when designing tall objects like cranes, telescoping communications masts or wind turbine towers. Wind Load Essentials As a [...]
Conduction and Radiation of Thermal Energy In my last blog post, I wrote about the conduction and radiation of thermal energy through windows and the thermal transmittance value, called the U-Factor, that characterizes that heat transfer. The U-factor is useful in evaluating window performance and making wise decisions when specifying components for a building, but it is only one piece of the puzzle. The National Fenestration Research Council (NFRC) mandates a second value alongside U-factor in its certification process, called the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC). SHGC represents the ability of a window to resist [...]
