Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) Study-Pump Inlet Manifold Design

Computational Fluid Dynamic (CFD) is used to model fluid flows. These can be highly viscous fluids like slurries through to low viscosity fluids such as air. In this study Deacon Engineers looked at a Pump Inlet Manifold Design at an irrigation facility to address some of the challenges they faced. One of the main factors

Probabilistic Design of Mechanical Components Subjected to Fatigue

Many factors go into estimating the life of a mechanical component or product. Do you know what it is made from?  Have you an understanding how it is made? Do you understand how is it used? These are just a few of the many aspects that affect the life of a mechanical component. Safety factors
