Wind Load CFD Modeling for Rooftop Elements Compared to ASCE 7

2018-02-20T11:28:46-07:00

  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 [...]

Semiconductor Safety: Pyrophoric Gases

2018-02-21T15:25:24-07:00

Fig. 1 Tall Fire from Chemical We have written about pyrophoric materials in a number of Glew Engineering’s previous blogs on safety in semiconductor fabrication, but have yet to cover how to define it or its danger.  At its simplest, a pyrophoric substance is any substance that spontaneously ignites in room temperature air.  As one might imagine, spontaneous combustion on contact with the regular atmosphere we live in can be quite dangerous. Last year, Glew Engineering assisted a research lab in designing a safe gas distribution system for their plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition chamber. [...]
