Do you know that in commercial applications, there are hardly any industries which uses raw metals for their parts. Most of them uses heat treatment process to modify the properties of metal that suits their requirement. So heat treatment is very crucial process in metallurgical industry. Let us learn more about what is heat treatment and what are the types of heat treatment.
Learn basics and advanced properties of engineering materials, material selection process and its implication in manufacturing industry.
Do you know why a spring compress or expand when you apply force on it? It’s the elastic property and flexibility that helps springs to behave like that. Hooke’s law is based on this theory. Let us know more about Hooke’s law in this article and also learn about Hooke’s law formula, equation and some …
Bulk modulus is one of the key property of materials and fluids to detect how it may behave when it is under pressure from all direction. Let us learn more about what is the bulk modulus, What is the bulk modulus formula and usage. What is Bulk Modulus? When a material or fluid is under …
If you stretch a rubber band, you will notice that up to some extent it will stretch. Once you stop stretching, the rubber band will come to its original shape. That is called elasticity of a materiel. Young’s Modulus is based on that principle. Let’s discuss more about Young’s Modulus in this article and figure out its definition, formula and usage.
Did you notice that when you stretch a rubber band, the width gets noticeably thinner? This is called Poisson’s effect. Passion’s ratio is the measure of that change in width due to the change in length. Let us learn more about Poisson’s Ratio in this article and we will also learn about Poisson’s Ratio Formula.
You are having a car or watching television or gifting a toy to your child or even flying an aircraft, Plastic is everywhere. We can’t even think of our life without plastic. In plastic part design often we come across this confusion about Thermoplastic vs Thermosetting plastic. So in this article, we will explain about Difference between thermoplastic and thermosetting plastics.
Those who work in the manufacturing industry might be aware of metal to plastic conversion nowadays. It was all started with automotive industries and now every industry is following the same path. Plastic offers a chunk of benefits over metals and industries has numerous reason to move to plastic. In this article, we will try to figure out why the industry trend is moving towards using more plastic than metals, how it is benefiting the industry and what could be the drawbacks.
