QUESTION: 13

A key that has curved bottom to match the shaft. This key is known as________

Solution:

The sunk keys are provided half in the keyway of the shaft and half in the keyway of the hub or boss of the pulley.

A key attached to one member of a pair and which permits relative axial movement is known as feather key. It is a special type of parallel key which transmits a turning moment and permits axial movement.

flat saddle key is a taper key which fits in a keyway in the hub and is flat on the shaft. It is likely to slip round the shaft under load. Therefore, it is used for comparatively light loads.

hollow saddle key is a taper key which fits in a keyway in the hub and the bottom of the key is shaped to fit the curved surface of the shaft. Since hollow saddle keys hold on by friction, therefore these are suitable for light loads. It is usually used as a temporary fastening in fixing and setting eccentrics, cams etc.

When the frictional force helps the applied force in applying the brake, the brake is

Solution:

When the frictional force helps  the applied force in applying the brake, such type of brakes are said to be self energizing brakes.

When the frictional force is great enough to apply the brake with no external force, then the brake is said to be self-locking brake.
The brake should be self-energizing and not the self-locking.

QUESTION: 16

How can shock absorbing capacity of a bolt be increased

Solution:

If the shank of the bolt is turned down to a diameter equal to even slightly less than the core diameter of the thread, then the shank of the bolt will undergo a higher stress. This means that the shank will absorb a large portion of the energy thus relieving the material at the section near the thread. The bolt in this way becomes stronger and lighter and it increase the shock absorbing capacity of the bolt.

What is the ratio of thermal conductivity to electrical conductivity equal to?

Solution: Note:
The Prandtl number, Pr, is the ratio of the momentum diffusivity (kinematic viscosity) to the thermal diffusivity. The Reynolds number (Re) is the ratio of inertia forces in the fluid to the viscous forces. Schmidt and Sherwood numbers are the mass transfer coefficient.
Schmidt number (Sc): Ratio of molecular diffusivity of momentum to molecular diffusivity of mass transfer. Sherwood number (Sh): Ratio of total mass transfer rate to mass transfer by molecular diffusion Lewis Number represent the relative magnitudes of heat and mass diffusion in the thermal and concentration boundary layers.

A hygrometer, also known as a psychrometer, is a device that is used to measure the humidity in the air.

A thermometer is a device that measures temperature or a temperature gradient.

A piezometer is a device used to measure liquid pressure in a system by measuring the height to which a column of the liquid rises against gravity.

QUESTION: 30

The cavitation in a hydraulic machine ________.

Solution:

Cavitation is defined as the phenomenon of formation of vapour bubbles of a flowing liquid in a region where the pressure of the liquid falls below its vapour pressure and the sudden collapsing of these vapour bubbles in a region of higher pressure. When the vapour pressure collapse, very high pressure is created.

Effects of cavitation:

(i) The metallic surfaces are damaged and cavities are formed on the surfaces.

(ii) Due to the sudden collapse of the vapour bubble, considerable noise and vibrations are produced.

(iii) Due to cavitation, the metal of the runner vanes and the draft tube is gradually eaten away, which results in lowering the efficiency of the turbine.

Which of the following is not considered a basic parameter for arc welding?

Solution:

For arc welding the main parameters are as follows:

Welding current: Welding current is the most influential parameter because it affects bead shape, controls the rate at which electrode is melted and therefore also controls the deposition rate, heat affected zone, the depth of penetration, and the amount of base metal melted.

Arc voltage: Welding voltage varies with the length of the arc between the electrode and molten weld metal. With the increase in arc length, the arc voltage increases.

Welding speed: Welding speed is the linear rate at which an arc is moved along the weld joint. With any combination of welding voltage and welding current, the effect of changing the welding speed confirms to a general pattern, the weld bead becomes smaller.

Electrode size: Electrode size affects the weld bead shape and the depth of penetration at fixed current.

Electrode work angle: The electrode may be held perpendicular to the work-piece or, tilted forward or backward with respect to the weld pool. As the arc stream tends to align itself along the axis of the electrode, the weld pool shape is different in each case, and so is the shape of the weld bead.

QUESTION: 39

Cemented carbide tools are usually provided with:

Solution:

Positive rake – helps reduce cutting force and thus cutting power requirement.

Negative rake – to increase edge-strength and life of the tool

Zero rake – to simplify design and manufacture of the form tools

Negative back rake angle is preferable for carbide tool. Carbide tools are very brittle in nature, so deformation occurs if we provide positive back rake angle.

Positive back rake angle is used for machining low tensile strength and non-ferrous materials. Negative back rake angles are used for machining high tensile strength material, heavy feed and interrupted cuts.

QUESTION: 40

QUESTION: 43

Which gear train is used for higher velocity ratios in a small space?

Solution:

Epicyclic gear train is the one in which the axes of some of the gears have motion. The said gear(s) would be revolving about external axis or axes. Whereas in other gear trains, the axes of all the gears do not have motion, only the gears rotate on their axes. Planetary gear trains are often employed to make more compact gear reducer (large speed reduction in a small volume) compared to other gear trains. Multiple kinematic combinations (multiple inputs) are possible with planetary gear trains.

QUESTION: 44

At stall, the wing tip stagnation point

Solution:

Stagnation point is a point in a flow field where the local velocity of the fluid is zero. Hence static pressure is at its maximum value at stagnation points.

A stall, also known as a partial or full separation of the airflow over a wing, happens at a critical angle of attack. Stagnation point is always underneath the wing to provide maximum lift due to the angle of attack.

At stall the angle of attack is high and the stagnation point moves towards the lower surface of the wing.

QUESTION: 45

The application of centrifugal compressor leads to

Solution:

Centrifugal compressors have a large frontal area than that of an axial flow compressor of the same rating. This makes the axial flow compressor more suitable for aircraft work.

Some of the important mountings are: Water level Indicator, Pressure Gauge, Safety Valve, Fusible Plug, Feed Check Valve, and Steam Stop Valve

The accessories are mounted on the boiler to increase its efficiency. These units are optional on an efficient boiler.

The following accessories are normally used on a modern boiler: Economizer, Superheater, Air pre-heater, Feed water pump, Steam injector, Chimney

QUESTION: 47

During a refrigeration cycle, heat is rejected by the refrigerant in a:

Solution:

In a compressor, the compression of the suction vapour from the evaporator to the condenser pressure takes place.

In a typical refrigerant condenser, the refrigerant enters the condenser in a superheated state. It is first de-superheated and then condensed by rejecting heat to an external medium. The refrigerant may leave the condenser as a saturated or a sub-cooled liquid, depending upon the temperature of the external medium and design of the condenser.

The evaporator is the component of a refrigerator system in which heat is removed from the air, water or any other body required to be cooled by the evaporating refrigerant.

An expansion device in a refrigeration system normally serves two purposes. One is the thermodynamic function of expanding the liquid refrigerant from the condenser pressure to the evaporator pressure. The other is the control function which may involve the supply of the liquid to the evaporator at the rate at which it is evaporated.
