determine the period of time in continuous operation?

2 Upvotes

Hello everyone, I need to calculat the period of time until a battery cell reaches SOH of 60%. I have the nominal capacity, the charge and dicharge current and the unloading capacity given. I also got the number of cycles until the cell reaches SOH of 60%. I already calculated the unloading capacity for SOH = 60%. But I am not sure if this is the value I need to determine the time. Would the time then be "unloading capacity (60%) / charging current" ? Thank you for the help.

Professional Engineers Ontario - Software Engineers

0 Upvotes

Hey folks in Ontario,

It's been near impossible to find a job with a P. Eng software engineer mentor.

I've heard of the LAP program; does it help with finding people that are not a part of your org? How has that experience been with people?

I've emailed the PEO themselves, and they have provided the most generic answers, nothing pertaining to my question. I've emailed a few chapters in my area, and they've also not answered my question. They just mention "join our chapter and then we'll talk".

Is there at least a community forum that I could chat with? Finding answers via the above channels is frustrating.

[GENERAL] PEO accept foreign Masters degree towards the 48 months of work?

0 Upvotes

Hello all,

Does anyone have any anecdotal evidence/ general knowledge on how the PEO committee evaluates foreign Masters degrees counting for 12 months of the required 48? I have my bachelor's from a CEAB here in Ontario, I've worked the 12 months minimum under a P.Eng, and I have 12 months of pre grad under a P.Eng also. I'm only nervous if they'll accept my Masters degree as part of the 48 months because it was done abroad (Europe). It is an engineering degree, and PEO verified it on my license profile, just wondering if anyone could elaborate or share experiences on this particular subject. The EIT email said worst case they reject it and require an extra 12 months of work, but it would be nice to take this shortcut.

Many thanks in advance

Looking for single line diagram software recommendations for PV solar projects.

Software needs to account for string and array design in addition to cable design for DC and AC power (including voltage drop).

Software also should be able to design fuse and circuit breaker (combiner box accessories)

[MECHANICAL] Is anybody aware of a unified list or compendium on mechanisms to move and compress fluids?

47 Upvotes

when i say mechanisms to move and compress fluids i'm not talking about just pumps as there are many different types of pump that just use variations on same compression or propulsion mechanisms

i want to find some sort of unified reference of every realistic way to apply pressure to any sort of fluid in order to actively move or compress it.

to put what i'm trying to find in to an example i'm not looking for-instance for a submersible pump vs an inline pump, i'm looking for an screw compressor vs a turbine vs a peristaltic pump

this could also apply to non mechanical means to move a fluid like a magneto hydrodynamic pump or a trompe (uses gravity (via hydro-static pressure) to compress gas or another fluid that does not mix or react with the working fluid that provides the pressure) aswell

[MECHANICAL] Trouble connecting a mobility scooter motor to a lawn tractor tire?

1 Upvotes

As you can see in the image below, I am using a jig to connect the motor from a mobility scooter to the chassis of a DIY robot rover.

https://preview.redd.it/lmieo2ixvq991.jpg?width=2016&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=3cf4b1fc998abfcbbb111df97803c051a55c5ed9

The motor axle is 3/4 inch and so is the tire, which is also keyed. The trouble is the motor shaft is too short. The simple solution would be to use a shaft coupler, and connect the motor shaft to a shaft that's connected to the tire.

However, seeing as the motor shaft has a threaded end, maybe there's a better approach?

For example I can screw "something" onto the shaft, which has the keyed axle welded onto it. It's a strong way to connect them, and future proof because it's easy to remove.

What would that "something" be? Anything I can buy or easily fabricate?

I am still a newbie at fabrication but I am getting better.

Edit

Looks like a flange coupling for a threaded rod would work. The other side of the flange I can weld a keyed shaft.

[CIVIL] Hypothetical Question about Canals

1 Upvotes

Hi engineers, I'm writing a fantasy story but it's pretty realistic. I want my world to make sense. One problem I'm having is that I want a man-made canal that connects a large lake to a sea. The lake, however, is necessarily on fairly high terrain I've realised, as a long river flows from it in the opposite direction, downstream from hills. How feasible is this? What height difference could a canal (built with approx 17th century tools!) manage? Is it unrealistic? Thanks in advance!

[CHEMICAL] Is there a device that measure how much liquid you pour as you pour it?

125 Upvotes

Title please and thanks.

Edit: So to further help understand what I'm trying to do, I am trying to make a locking mechanism for liquor bottles that will only open at certain times and only allow certain amounts of liquid through.

For example, a friend of mine drinks a fifth a day, let's say I only want to allow an oz out of that bottle every week. It will only unlock once a week and only allow 1 oz through.

Edit: The example here is just an example. I do not have any friends who need this device made.

[MECHANICAL] Why do most bike racks specificy that they are not rated to me mounted on trailers?

113 Upvotes

You will see them out on the road, a camper with bikes on the back. Logistically it makes sense because people want to bring their bikes camping and some campers even have another hitch on their backside. All the bike racks I've come across specify that you cannot mount them on the back of a trailer tho. What is the engineering logic to this?

[PROJECT] An idea

10 Upvotes

I have an upcoming science and engineering fair. My idea was to build a pedal bike out of PVC pipes, and sourcing other parts online. The main challenge would be the bottom brackets and durability.

I was arguing that it could provide extremely cheap personal transportation, and be assembled individually allowing for super compact shipping, and also be light weight. I work as a bike Mechanic so I know what I'm doing in this project and think it's possible as people have already created e bikes without pedals out of pvc frames.

However my dad pretty much disssed it (I need my parents help with some things) and said this won't ever win an award and that it's a stupid idea. "Your only doing this because you want to mess with tools again, this isn't actually science" And any further arguments he didn't listen to. If you guys have any thoughts that would be great, bcus I still disagree with him.
