Why are electric cars such a big deal ? Are they really better than today’s gasoline powered ones? Well, we’ll see. more “How do electric cars work ? | Tesla cars”
Electric vehicles or EVs are getting popular day by day. Most of them know about electric cars by knowing Tesla Motors, one of the leading manufacturer of electric cars.
The 2018 Tesla Roadster goes from 0-100 km/hr in just eye-popping 1.9 seconds & its the fastest production car in the world!
Wondering how does that even happen? Hah, welcome to the future, reader! The whole article is about to answer your questions.
So lets get going and know how do electric cars work?
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 helicopters work, fly & turn (Animation) ?”
The first jet engine successfully flew in August, 1939.
Hans von Ohain of Germany was the designer of the first operational jet engine, though credit for the invention of the jet engine went to Great Britain’s Frank Whittle. Whittle, who registered a patent for the turbojet engine in 1930, received that recognition but did not perform a flight test until 1941.
Its been more than 75 years, there has been continuous development in jet engines & has a significant increase in their efficiency. There are many types of jet engines depending on their construction & power they can deliver. Todays jet engines are able to produce so much of thrust that airplanes could fly at speeds multiple times the speed of sound ! more “Types of Jet Engines (animations)!”
Press brakes are widely used in the world of metalworking, and like any kind of heavy duty machinery deployed in various manufacturing contexts, there are lots of interesting facts and figures relating to them which are worth knowing about. more “What are Press brakes? | Types and Applications”
There are very few aspects of modern life that aren’t directly tied to technological innovation. Technology is at the heart of almost every aspect of the modern world and being willing to embrace it is something that practically every person has to come to terms with. This is especially true for any business. Regardless of the industry that you’re working within, digital and engineering technologies are always moving forward and innovating and it’s essential that you are willing to keep up. This can be something of a challenge but it’s a challenge that you’ve got to be willing to meet if you want to run a business that can truly succeed in the modern world. With that in mind, here are some just of the benefits of being willing and able to take advantage of tech innovations.

Here we bring yet another project for mechanical engineers – Design and Fabrication of solenoid engine.
What is Solenoid engine?
In simple words, a solenoid engine is a type of engine in which the pistons move back & forth on the principle of electro-magnetism, passing electricity through a coil(solenoid). more “Project – Design and Fabrication of Solenoid engine”

Self-driving cars and vehicles have been on the horizon for many years. Ever since the first sci-fi movies were introduced, people have dreamed of various inventions making it to the real world. Hover cars are still a dream, though it feels like they’re unlikely to ever find a place in our society. On the other hand, the concept of cars that drive themselves is very much a reality. Scientists and researchers are working around the clock to bring this innovative technology to the consumer market. In fact, we can see many instances of self-driving cars in action right now. Granted, a completely autonomous vehicle doesn’t exist, but there are plenty of cars that do include some aspects of self-driving. more “How do Self-driving cars work ?”
The concept of flying vehicles can be traced back to 16th century when Leonardo Da Vinci drew and designed the first helicopter in his notebook. Since then, man has only gazed into sky and wondered, how blissful would the experience be of flying freely like a bird! Until 2 bicycle mechanics worked their a** off & made this dream a reality.
It has been more than a century since the first airplane – Flyer took off & flew at speed of just 11 kmph! In a span of 100+ years, the numbers and factors have got multiplied by factor of 1000’s! Check out the top 7 innovations of the aviation technology that have made today’s airplanes possible! more “The Top 7 innovations of the Aviation technology”
If you’ve ever watched a documentary about the Second World War or seen a classic film such as The Dambusters, you will be familiar with the Merlin engine’s throaty sound. Inspired by the R-engine that won the Scheider trophy Rolls Royce and then Packard further developed the engine. It was instrumental in winning the war and achieved legendary status among fans online with a physicaladdress and in the world of aviation engineering. more “Merlin Engine – The Mechanical hero of World War II”
