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

Safe Design of Rotating Equipment

1. PROBLEM DESCRIPTION Deacon Engineers carried out the design of large, rotating digesters for the treatment of municipal solid waste. The digesters are approximately 65m long and 4.5m in diameter and rotate continuously, at 1 rpm, while processing up to 500 tonnes of waste. Due to the cyclic nature of the loading, careful attention had
