When buying a car, there are lots of things that customers look at. The most important one being the engine power. That’s why some of the most common terms in car sales adverts are related to the engine. Some of them include brake horsepower(bhp), torque, cc, and horsepower(hp). For a car salesperson, understanding these terms is critical. But it’s not just car salespeople that need to understand these terms, even those in the car leasing business need to understand them. As a car salesperson or a leasing company, the last thing you want is for a customer to ask you a technical question, and you have no idea how to answer them. As such, you need to familiarize yourself with some of the most common terms in cars. One of the most common ones is the brake horsepower. So what does brake horsepower even mean and whats the difference between hp and bhp?more “What is brake horsepower? | BHP vs HP”
In one of my previous articles, we learned what are gearboxes, their main parts, why do we need them and their working in detail. So today, you will be learning what are the types of gearbox and what are the differences between them and in which vehicles they are used.more “Types of Gearbox used in automobiles”
If you are an auto enthusiast or a mechanical engineer, you probably know what gearboxes or transmission systems are and how immensely complex they are !
Today in this article lets know about them in depth. What is gearbox? what are the main components of gearbox? Why do we need them? EVERYTHING. more “What is Gearbox? Main components of Gearbox explained”
So today, we are talking about trains. Isn’t it fascinating to watch a single locomotive pulling dozens of wagons at such incredible speed! I remember when I was a kid, I used to sit on the railway platforms waiting for a fast train to pass by & enjoy the loud sounds of locomotives & gust of wind. Ah, those were the days!
Anyway, let’s know why do some trains have multiple engines or to be precise why trains have locomotives at the rear end, because that’s what you came here for. more “Why do trains have locomotives at the rear end ?”
Sounds cool, eh? Yeah, well, they are cool ! So in this detailed post we are going to see what is turbine, what are the types of turbines, their working & applications in various powerplants.
What is turbine ?
A turbine is a rotating part which converts kinetic energy of a working fluid into useful mechanical energy and/or electrical energy. Simple, right? Well, nothing is simple when you go deeper.
There are set of blades mounted on a rotor which helps in extracting energy from the moving fluid. The efficiency of turbines depend on the design of the blades.
Different applications need different designs & designing them isn’t a layman’s job. more “What are Turbines ? | Types of turbines & their applications”
SUPERCHARGERS – sounds cool, right ? Well, it is. You might have come across it in NFS or other racing games if you are hardcore racing fan like me 😛 . So what are superchargers, their types, advantages, how do they work ?
Lets know everything related to them today, right here, right now ! more “What are Superchargers ? | Working, Types, Advantages, Limitations”
If you are an auto enthusiast or even NFS lover you definitely have heard about them ! We also know that they increase the power of the vehicle but, which is better, how do they work & what are the differences between superchargers vs turbochargers ? Lets dive right in.
Let me give a basic idea about superchargers & turbo before proceeding to the differences. more “Differences between Superchargers vs Turbochargers”
