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”
When I was a kid, I always used to think, is there a need of clutch ? what does it do exactly ? & as a kid I was able to imagine the working of brakes & how does the speed increase but I was never able to understand clutches ! It was truly a satisfying moment for me when I was completely able to understand clutches. So here it is, today we’ll see everything you need to know about Clutches ! more “How car clutches work ? | Parts, function & types !”
With great power, comes great BRAKES
that was just my honest attempt to make you laugh 😀
Well, that is what I think about brakes. If you have a car with a powerful engine which could run fast as a cheetah but doesn’t have enough powerful brakes to stop it OR control it, you better sell it ASAP 😛 .
So today in here, we’ll see what are brakes & the types of brakes ! more “What are Brakes ? | Types of Brakes explained (animations)”
Very few are lucky enough to take a ride in a Chopper & I am happy to be one of them ! Anyway, helicopters are indeed one of the most interesting machines from which I know so far. Subjects like flight mechanics & helicopter dynamics are not for weak hearted ones; they are seriously challenging to study ! Well keeping those complex calculations, equations & relations aside, lets at least know how helicopters work, fly & are steered ! more “How do helicopters fly, work & turn (Animation) ?”
Rotary/gnome engines were used to power aircrafts during WW-I & radial engines during WW-II. Then came the era of jet engines which completely revolutionized the aviation technology ! Jet engines were very much efficient & powerful than those used during World wars ! The power jet engines deliver is so high that an airplane weighing hundreds of tons lifts off the ground with such ease. How are they capable of producing so much of power/thrust ?
So lets not waste our time & have a look on how do jet engines work ? more “How do Gas turbines/Jet propulsion engines work ?”
