Which of the followings falls under the category of the plastic or non-fusion welding?
Plastic or Non fusion welding: In this welding, the pieces of metal to be joined are heated to a plastic state and then forced together by external pressure. This procedure is used in forge welding, resistance welding, thermit welding and gas welding.
Fusion or Non pressure welding: In the fusion welding, the material at the joint is heated to a molten state and allowed to solidify. This includes gas welding, arc welding etc.
Cold welding: In this welding, the joints are produced without the application of heat but by applying pressure which results in inter-surface molecular fusion of the parts to be joined. This process is mainly used for welding nonferrous sheet metal.
The proper selection of welding depends upon, in addition to cost involved:
The selection of proper welding depend on the following factors
1. The type of metal to be joined
2. The techniques of welding adopted
3. The cost of equipment used
4. The nature of products to be fabricated
In the upset butt welding:
In upset butt welding, the two metal parts to be welded are joined end to end and are connected across the secondary of a welding transformer
Due to the contact resistance of the metals to be welded, heating effect is generated in this welding.
The voltage required is 2-8 V and the current required ranges from 50 A to several hundred amperes depending upon material and the area to be welded at a time
The electric arc has:
Electric arc welding is the process of joining two metallic pieces. In this, melting of metal is obtained due to the heat developed by an arc struck between an electrode and the metal to be welded or between the two electrodes
When the supply is given across the conductors separated by some distance apart, the air gap present between the two conductors gets ionized. As the arc welding in progress, the ionization of the arc path and its surrounding area increases
The increase in ionization decreases the resistance of the path. Thus, current increases with the decrease in voltage of arc. It indicates that, arc has negative resistance characteristics
A rectifier used for welding has voltage current characteristic as:
Drooping V-I characteristic is used on constant current type welding machine. When arc is struck in arc welding machine electoral is essentially in short circuit which would immediately require a sudden of current otherwise machine is designed to Prevent this. A constant current machine is designed to minimized these sudden surges.
Which of the following filament material has the lowest melting point?
In electric discharge lamps, for stabilization of arc:
In electric discharge lamps, a choke is connected in series with the supply to limit the starting current and to stabilize the arc.
When a sodium vapor lamp is switched on, initially the color is:
Initially the sodium is in the form of a sloid, deposited on the walls of inner tube. When sufficient voltage is impressed across the electrodes, the discharge starts in the inert gas (neon). It operates as a low pressure neon lamp with pink colour
The type of drive used for a paper mill requiring a constant speed operation and the flexibility of control is:
Group drives: Electric drive that is used to drive two or more than two machines from line shaft through belts and pulleys is known as group drive
Individual drive: A single electric motor is used to drive one individual machine.
Multi-motor drive: Several separate motors are provided for operating different parts of the single machine
For a paper mill requiring a constant speed operation and the flexibility of control we can use Individual or multi-motor drive
The least significant electrical characteristic in the selection of the electric motor for a flour mill is:
In the selection of the electric motor for a flour mill, starting torque and running torque both are important. Braking is least significant electrical characteristic for this purpose
Trapezoidal speed-time curve pertains to:
Main line services: The distance between two stops is usually more than 10 km. High balancing speeds should be required. Acceleration and retardation are not so important
Urban service: The distance between two stops is very less and it is less than 1 km. It requires high average speed for frequent starting and stopping
Sub urban service: The distance between two stops is between 1 km and 8 km. This service requires rapid acceleration and retardation as frequent starting and stopping is required
In main line service, free running period is more. Hence Trapezoidal speed-time curve pertains to main line service
For a given value of an average speed, decrease in duration of stops causes:
Average Speed: It is the mean of the speeds attained by the train from start to stop, i.e. it is defined as the ratio of the distance covered by the train between two stops to the total time of run. It is denoted with Va
Average speed = distance between stops / actual time of run
Va = D/T
Where Va is the average speed of train in kmph
D is the distance between stops in km
T is the actual time in hours
Schedule Speed: The ratio of the distance covered between two stops to the total time of the run including the time for stop is known as schedule speed. It is denoted with Vs
Where Ts is the schedule time in hours
For a given value of an average speed, decrease in duration of stops causes increase in schedule speed
