A method of metamechanism combination and replacement based on motion study

A METHOD OF METAMECHANISM COMBINATION AND REPLACEMENT BASED ON MOTION STUDY

Motion Study, also known as motion research, element analysis, or work study, its main content is seeking the most economical and effective working method through a variety of analytical methods. It is an effective way to study and formulate correct and reasonable motion to shorten hours and improve efficiency by increasing valuable movement and shorten or eliminate waste motion (Du, 2013). Frank Bunker Gilbreth, an American engineer, established therbligs theory in 1912. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers added ‘Discovery’ motion and summarized 18 kinds of basic therbligs (Hua, 2012). In the process of analysis of therbligs, operation is observed and divided finely, and motion sequence is linked with hands, feet, eyes, and head movements in detail (Hirosea, Dokia, Kondoa, 2013). Furthermore, operation is recorded and classified by therblig symbols, and the problems about operating sequence and method, such as singlehand waiting, unreasonable motion, and waste motion, are found and improved. The application researches in the country about motion study are mainly focused on the

ENGINEERING THE RISKS OF HAZARDOUS WASTES

ENGINEERING THE RISKS OF HAZARDOUS WASTES

of the world around us. Ideally, society would like industries to manufacture goods without producing any hazardous wastes. Unfortunately, it is notpossible for all industries to produce zero hazardous wastes, but it is possibleto minimize the production of hazardous wastes. One of the tools to helpminimize the production of hazardous wastes is called risk assessment. Riskassessment techniques are useful in helping people understand the impact ofdifferent levels of hazardous wastes being discharged into our current environment and the potential damages that can be expected over time. Riskassessment is essential for environmental pollution control specialists toset waste discharge levels for the different hazardous components.Once the allowable hazardous waste discharge quantities have beendetermined, environmental engineers examine the various treatment systems to remove the hazardous contaminants from all the different wastestreams. Inorganic contaminants are removed by physicochemical methods,whereas organic contaminants are removed by various biologic treatmentsystems. Even photochemical methods are useful with specific contaminants. Environmental scientists play a major role in evaluating the different treatment methods used to remove the hazardous contaminants.Environmental engineers take the basic concepts developed by environmental scientists and design the treatment systems required to removeForeword xvthe hazardous contaminants. Sometimes environmental engineers constructlarge-scale pilot plants to demonstrate which treatment concept offers thebest potential for success. Pilot plants can help illuminate potential problemsthat might arise in full-scale treatment systems.Once the engineers have selected the optimum process, they mustdesign the full-scale treatment system and select all of the mechanicalequipment to be used. The engineers supervise construction of the fullsize treatment units and placement of all mechanical equipment. Oncethe construction phase is complete, the environmental engineers start thetreatment facilities and demonstrate the effectiveness of the treatment systems to remove the desired amounts of contaminants. The final step for theenvironmental engineer is training the treatment plant operators to ensurecorrect operation of the waste treatment facilities. Responsibility for day-today operations rests with the treatment plant operators and their immediatesupervisor. Removal of the hazardous components from the various waste

MELAB SAMPLEESSAYS COMMENTARY 2013

MELAB SAMPLEESSAYS COMMENTARY 2013

It is true that medical doctors are health professionals whose roles are ofgreat importance in the society. They are usually educated and people generallylook up to them to take good care of their health issues. In fact, whether peoplelive or die depends to a very great extend on the doctors in charge of their healthsituations, depending on how serious they are. Almost every one wants a doctorthat is vastly knowledgeable in the medical field, especially those with many years ofexperience.Although I agree that the level of education of a medical doctor is of muchimportance for a doctor to be regarded as a “good medical doctor”, I am also ofthe opinion that that is not the only criterion for a doctor to be regarded as a “goodmedical doctor”. Character and the integrity of the person contribute to a largeextend. I am also of the view that a medical doctor should be a very responsibleperson in the society because alot of people tend to emulate them. Young adultsusually look forward to becoming medical doctors in the future. That being the case,they tend to copy the behaviours of medical doctors they know.The country where I come from, Nigeria, where the health system has someissues, some medical doctors who lack good character and do not care about theirintegrity can, because a patient does not have enough money to pay their medicalbills, walk away from a dying patient. During oath taking, these doctors state thatthey will put patients first before any thing, but some of them do not keep up withthis. Although I agree that doctors in the third world countries usually face somechallenges, I am still of the opinion that when it comes to saving a patient’s life, a goodmedical doctor should always swing into action. In Canada, though I have stayed herefor just a year, I think many of their doctors can be regarded as “good doctors”from the little I have seen.In conclusion, I believe that a well educated doctor without a good characterand integrity and also without a passion to save lives is as good as a “bad doctor”since, with his education but with love for money rather than love for his patient’slives, can still lead to the loss of lives.

04 API RP 577 2nd edition dec 2013 welding processes, inspection, and metallurgy

This recommended practice (RP) provides guidance to the API authorized inspector on welding inspection asencountered with fabrication and repair of refinery and chemical plant equipment and piping. This RP includesdescriptions of common welding processes, welding procedures, welder qualifications, metallurgical effects fromwelding, and inspection techniques to aid the inspector in fulfilling their role implementing API 510, API 570, API 653and API 582. The level of learning and training obtained from this document is not a replacement for the training andexperience required to be a certified welding inspector under one of the established welding certification programssuch as the American Welding Society (AWS) Certified Welding Inspector (CWI), or Canadian and Europeanequivalent schemes such as CWB, CSWIP, PCN, or EFW.This RP does not require all welds to be inspected; nor does it require welds to be inspected to specific techniquesand extent. Welds selected for inspection, and the appropriate inspection techniques, should be determined by thewelding inspectors, engineers, or other responsible personnel using the applicable code or standard. The importance,difficulty, and problems that could be encountered during welding should be considered by all involved. A weldingengineer should be consulted on any critical, specialized or complex welding issues.2 Normative Ref

from under a cloud deck, I drove tothe Sheep River valley. I thoughtescaping the clouds was hopeless,but lo and behold, there was theMoon. Or, at least, part of the Moon!It was the best eclipse I have seen.”COMPOSITE OF A BEAUTIFUL SIGHT Key steps as the Moon dipped into and out of the Earth’sshadow during the eclipse were captured and arranged in this montage by Jean Guimond of Quebec City.He used an SBIG STL-11000 CCD camera and an f/7.3 Takahashi 150mm apochromatic refractor. Exposuretimes range from 1.5 to 6 seconds for the luminance filter and 4 to 10 seconds for the RGB filters.ECLIPSE UNFOLDING To capture the sequence of events during the eclipse, Rod Hutson of Edmontontook 860 frames from the urban setting shown here. “The first 90 minutes of penumbral and umbral shadowphases took place below my eastern horizon,” he reports, “so my Moon images start at lower left at about7:54 p.m., MDT,” and continue through totality and the partial phases to the end of the eclipse at upper right.Each image of the Moon was taken with a Nikon D7000 and a 70-300mm lens set at 270mm. Then, usingPhotoshop, Hutson digitally placed the images in the neighbourhood street view taken from the same viewpoint. The final image includes individual Moon frames selected at roughly 10-minute intervals in order toprovide adequate separation yet still show the approximate alignment and details of the eclipse as it progressed. The mount used was the Sky-Watcher Star Adventurer in Moon tracking mode.JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2016 • SKYNEWS11SKY10 SIGHTSTopA rare transit of Mercury

SHOULD GOVERNMENTS SPEND MONEY ON COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY ORMORE BASIC NEEDS

SHOULD GOVERNMENTS SPEND MONEY ON COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY ORMORE BASIC NEEDS

Should governments spend money on computer technology ormore basic needs?Should the governments spend as much money as possible ondeveloping or buying computer technology? Or should this moneybe spent on more basic needs? A wise solution to this dilemmadepends on the circumstance. In most developing countries, moneyshould be spent on satisfying the basic needs of the people, insteadof on developing computer technologies. Unlike the people indeveloped countries, those in some countries are stilling leading apoor live, and are short of the most basic needs, food, drinkingwater, medic care, and so on. In these countries, any governmentwith responsibility should spend as much money as possible onproviding the people with basic recourses. After all, the problem ofbeing alive is much more important than being equipped withmodern technologies, such as computers. However, this is not to saythat the development of computer technology is dispensable. On thecontrary, our society has seen a great importance of computers.Nowadays, computers play key roles in every aspect of the society,e.g. in industry, education, and public communication. Without thehelp of computers, a modern society can hardly work properly.Thus, it is definitely necessary for a government to develop or to bycomputer technologies. Unfortunately, like other moderntechnologies, the development of computer technology consumes atremendous amount of money. A regular personal computer coststhousands of dollars. A huge computer, which can do ultra-fastcalculation, costs millions of dollars. What is more, the developmentof such computers is a complicated session, generally takes over tenyears and a group of experts on computer sciences, meaning a greatamount of investments. Although being a mission consuming moneyas well as time, the development of computer technology issupposed to be taken good care of, as long as the basic needs of the

DEFINITIONS AND FRAMEWORKS FOR ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY IN HIGHER EDUCATION

DEFINITIONS AND FRAMEWORKS FOR ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY IN HIGHER EDUCATION

In a study of the implementation of the Halifax Declaration, Wright (2002)has found that the majority of signatory universities have not implemented thedeclaration within their institution. The few that have attempted to implementthe declaration have incorporated the general concepts and value statements ofthe declaration into their own institutional environment and sustainabilitypolicies rather than use the declaration as the sole sustainability policy for theuniversity.The University of British Columbia (UBC), for example, mentions theHalifax Declaration in their Campus Sustainability Policy, but created its owninstitutional policy based on the principles of the Halifax and TalloiresDeclarations. On the east coast of Canada, Dalhousie University is currently inthe process of creating a new environmental policy (replacing theenvironmental policy of 1994 in light of its commitments in signing the HalifaxDeclaration, the Talloires Declaration and the International Declaration onCleaner Production). McGill University in Montreal, Canada also refers to theHalifax and Talloires Declarations in its draft institutional environmentalpolicy. The major challenges and barriers to the implementation are listed as alack of leadership, a lack of accountability mechanisms, and fiscal constraints(Wright, 2002).Agenda 21 – Chapter 36Agenda 21 was the result of the United Nations Conference on Environmentand Development held in Rio de Janeiro, 1992. While practically all of thechapters in Agenda 21 are related to environmental sustainability, Chapter 36(Education, awareness and training) specifically addresses issues related tosustainability in education (UNCED, 1992). Chapter 36 first recognized pastuniversity sustainability directives, and stated that the Tbilisi Declarationprovided the fundamental principles for the proposals listed in Agenda 21. Thethree main thrusts were:(1) reorienting education towards sustainable development;(2) increasing public awareness of environmental issues; and

Effect of the reciprocating mass of slider-crank mechanism on torsional vibrations of diesel engine systems

Effect of the reciprocating mass of slider-crank mechanism on torsional vibrations of diesel engine systems

The torsional vibration phenomenon in the running gear of reciprocating engine systems is usually dealt with by considering a series of constant inertias connected by sections of massless shafting. However in reality, a slider crank mechanism is a vibrating system with varying inertia because the effective inertia of the total oscillating mass of each crank assembly varies twice per revolution of the crankshaft. Large variations in inertia torques can give rise to the phenomenon of secondary resonance in torsional vibration of modern marine diesel engines which can not be explained by conventional theory incorporating only the mean values of the varying inertias. In the past associated secondary resonances and regions of instability tended to be dismissed by most engineers as interesting but of no importance.

A DICTIONARY OF LITERARY AND THEMATIC TERMS

A DICTIONARY OF LITERARY AND THEMATIC TERMS

Karenina (1875–77) and Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter (1850), the centrality ofthe woman and the complexity of her role anticipate this shift in mood. Althoughthe heroines of all three of these novels commit adultery and are punished associal outcasts, they also achieve an authentic sense of self from the adulterousexperience and the suffering that follows it.Among 20th-century novelists, John Updike is noted for his concentration on the theme. Updike’s approach is distinguished by his representation ofadultery as a spiritual transgression instead of a social threat. In focusing on thisspiritual or religious dimension, he follows his progenitor, Nathaniel Hawthorne.The Scarlet Letter, in fact, forms the basis of three novels by Updike (A Month ofSundays, 1975; Roger’s Version, 1986; and S, 1988) in which the perspectives ofthe three main characters of the Hawthorne novel (Arthur Dimmesdale, RogerChillingworth, and Hester Prynne) are recreated in contemporary terms.The influence of the “myth of adultery” is traced in Denis de Rougemont’s Love in theWesternWorld (1940). Tony Tanner’s Adultery in the Novel (1979) examines the theme in key19th-century European novels. Donald Greiner’s Adultery in the American Novel (1985)looks at the uses of the theme in the works of Nathaniel Hawthorne, Henry James, andJohn Updike.adventure story A type of fiction that usually includes suspense, excitement,physical danger, travel to exotic settings, and an intrepid hero/heroine. In many ofthese respects, the adventure story is kin to the ROMANCE, but the adventure storyrelies on a series of exciting episodes unified by the theme of a search for a lostperson, place, or object. The prototype of the form is Homer’s Odyssey, in whichthe hero faces a series of threatening situations as he attempts to voyage home.The adventure story is one of the staples of CHILDREN’S LITERATURE, suchas Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island (1883). In film, the form is a key element of the SERIAL.advertising Although the history of advertising dates back to classical times, itdid not emerge as a powerful force in society until the industrial age in the 19thcentury. Literature and advertising share a common purpose, to have its audiences engage in the WILLING SUSPENSION OF DISBELIEF. However, where literary
