Engineering ToolBox - Resources, Tools and Basic Information for Engineering and Design of Technical Applications!
Mechanical production methods and their surface roughness.
Surface roughness from mechanical processing like
- flame cutting
- planning, shaping
- electron beam
- boring, turning
- barrel finishing
- electrolytic grinding
- roller burnishing
- sand casting
- hot rolling
- investment casting
- cold rolling, drawing
- die casting
are indicated in the diagram below:
- Engineering related topics like Beaufort Wind Scale, CE-marking, drawing standards and more.
- Typical tolerances for floors, walls, columns and more.
- Calculating volume flow and velcity in open conduits.
- Comparing sandpaper grit size and surface roughness.
- Machine processing and tolerance grades.
- Calculate cross-sectional average velocity flow in open channels.
- Manning's roughness coefficients for some common materials.
- Calculate fluid flow friction coefficients from a Moody diagram.
- Surface coefficients that can be used to calculate friction and major pressure loss for fluid flow with surfaces like concrete, galvanized steel, corroded steel and more.
- Grit sizes ranging 12 - 600.
- The relative scale of objects.
- US commercial sieve sizes vs. mesh designations.
- U.S. mesh size vs. surface roughness.
