Grady Hillhouse is a professional civil engineer and hobbyist everything else in San Antonio, Texas. Randall Munroe said, "You can look at practically any part of anything manmade around you and think, Some engineer was frustrated while designing this. It's a little human connection." My goal for Practical Engineering is to increase exposure and interest in the field of engineering. I'm trying to highlight that connection between the world around us and the energy, passion, and thought that goes into making it a nicer place to live.

How Soil Destroys Buildings

Okay this is the last video on the hazards of soil mechanics for a while :) Support for this video comes from Brilliant: https://brilliant.org/PracticalEngineering/ Expansive soils cause more property damage per year than earthquakes, floods, hurricanes, and tornadoes combined. Expansive soils are a slow-moving geologic phenomenon, which makes them not very news-worthy. However, they still cause a tremendous amount of damage to buildings and the public infrastructure we rely on every day.

The Causes and Effects of Water Hammer

Water hammer has the potential to rupture valves, pipes, and fittings. Condensate can collect on the bottom of steam lines, out of the flow path, so it requires some external means, like gravity for instance, to move it through the system. While damage is most often caused by repeated occurrences of water hammer, sometimes damage can be immediate and catastrophic, and sometimes harmful to employee safety. Armstrong International has released an updated interactive 30 minutes course on Water Hammer. The course objectives are: --Understand basic mechanics of water hammer --Identify conditions under which water hammer may occur --Apply preventative solutions...

Can a satellite do a yo-yo trick?

Demonstrations using the Algodoo software and a custom-built physical model of a rotating satellite. The job of keeping a spacecraft pointed in the right direction is called "attitude control." Some of you parents might have a different definition for that term, but one of the most widely-used techniques is spin stabilization. (Maybe it works on toddlers too?) Sometimes after spin stabilization, you need to despin, and that's where the yo-yo comes in. The Yo-Yo De-Spin mechanism involves deploying small masses which increase the moment of inertia, reducing angular velocity. This simple kids toy is doing an important job for rockets and...

How Seawater Desalination Works

CASE STUDY: Desalination is a complicated process, the Seven Seas Corp.* approached DaVinci Studio to develop an animation that simplified the explanation of the process. Taking a cue from Seven Seas we started with squiggly style animation to give the technical looking components a non-technical look. Bottom line is to go from engineering-speak to the layman's level. Desalination (also called "desalinization" and "desalting") is the process of removing dissolved salts from water, thus producing fresh water from seawater or brackish water. Desalting technologies can be used for many applications. The most prevalent use is to produce potable water from saline water...

Sphere Earth Conspiracy - Geodesy

Don't let anyone try to convince you that the earth is a sphere! It's actually closer to an ellipsoid. How does your airline pilot know which direction to head when he’s over the ocean with no landmarks? How do we know the exact boundaries between parcels of land and between states and countries? These are questions we answer with geodesy (sometimes known as Geodetics Engineering): the science of how we characterize the shape and size of the earth.

Horsepower vs Torque - A Simple Explanation

What's The Difference Between Horsepower & Torque? Why Is Peak Acceleration At Peak Power? https://youtu.be/cb6rIZfCuHI Subscribe for new videos every Wednesday! - https://goo.gl/VZstk7 Awesome Car Products: https://www.amazon.com/shop/engineeringexplained Which is better, horsepower or torque? Two words that are often stated in the car community, but often misunderstood. This video seeks to clarify the difference between the two, without silly analogies like "horsepower is how fast you hit the wall, torque is how far you take it with you" (which, by the way, is highly inaccurate). Torque is a force acting at a radius, while horsepower simply incorporates time into the equation. This video will discuss...

How to Make Free Energy Water Pump - Ram Pump

How to make a hydraulic ram pump which requires no electricity and no motor. NOTE : This pump uses falling water to lift a lesser amount of water to a higher elevation than the source. So, being primarily used for lifting relatively small amount of water to a higher elevation. if you want to deliver 2 cubic meter of water to an elevated location, you need at least 6 cubic meters of water to operate the pump 4 cubic meters of which will be used to drive the pump and goes directly as waste.

Why Concrete Needs Reinforcement

More destructive testing to answer your questions about concrete. The first 1000 people to click will get their first 2 months of Skillshare for free: http://skl.sh/PracticalEngineering2 Concrete's greatest weakness is its tensile strength, which can be less than 10% of its compressive strength. So, we often reinforce it to create a composite material strong against all types of stress. This video briefly touches on conventional rebar and prestressed/post-tensioned reinforcement. -Patreon: http://patreon.com/PracticalEngineering -Website: http://practical.engineering This video was sponsored by Skillshare.

Sand Castle Holds Up A Car! - Mechanically Stabilized Earth

Dirt is probably the cheapest and simplest construction material out there, but it's not very strong compared to other choices. Luckily geotechnical engineers have developed a way to strengthen earthen materials with almost no additional effort - Mechanically Stabilized Earth (aka MSE or Reinforced Soil). If you look closely, you'll see MSE walls are everywhere. Thanks for watching, and let me know what you think!
