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 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.

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.

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!

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...

Animation | How ram pump works | Explained in detail.

This video is an animation based tutorial on the working of hydraulic ram pumps. We have made this video in such a way that it's very easy to understand. Have taken sincere effort to make it as simple as possible with animations and explanation. Ram pump works with the basic working principle - the gained momentum of the flowing water due to gravity and the flapping of the two valves namely the waste valve and the delivery valves. These types of pumps are used in rural areas which have a requirement to pump up hill and the availability of...

Why Tunnels Don't Collapse

How simple reinforcement is used to prevent collapse of rock tunnels. Join Dollar Shave Club for only $5 at http://www.dollarshaveclub.com/PracticalEngineering Tunnels play an important role in our constructed environment as passageways for mines, conveyance for utilities, and routes for transportation. Rock bolts are a type of reinforcement for stabilizing rock excavations, usually made from steel bars or bolts. This simple construction method dramatically reduces the cost of making tunnels through rock safe from collapse.
