  • Waterline History Essay

    was ceased in 1970 and banned. There is still transite pipe in use today but most of it is being replaced. This summer, our company replaced over 3,000 feet of 8 inch transite with 8 inch PVC waterline in Painesville, Ohio. Fig. 3- A 16” Transite line. The first complete use of cast iron piping was used in France in 1664, which is still functioning today. However, cast iron piping wasn’t introduced to the U.S. until the early-1900s and was used in place of the wooden lines. Cast iron was most…

  • Pestle Analysis Iron

    were made that manufacturers were incorrectly labeling the iron content on their products. The purpose of this experiment was to analyze the amount of iron in approximately one serving of Total Whole Grain cereal and in one iron tablet and determine if these accusations were true. The values collected would then be compared to the actual values for these products. Total cereal contains 100% of the recommended daily allowance for iron, and the iron tablet contains 361% of the recommended daily…

  • What Is Hardness?

    to obtain estimates of moduli and relative estimates of the strengths of individual phases within a multiphase alloy.Nevertheless,some empirical and approximate theoretical “rules-of thumb” have been developed to estimate the yield strength from the hardness.One “rules-of thumb ” states that yield strength is approximately equal to 1/3 of the measured hardness level. HARDNESS TEST METHODS: 1.The Brinell Test The Brinell test was the first static indentation test to come into general use.in its…

  • The Importance Of Conductivity In Polymers

    A polymer is a large molecule which is formed by repeated linkage of small molecule called monomers. Conducting polymer have been the subjects for many decades as possible synthetic metals. Many of these polymer, especially those with a conjugated pi-bond system ,often yield higher conductivity once having undergone the doping process. Polymers are typically insulators due to their very high resistivity .Insulators have tightly bound electrons so that nearly no electron flow occurs ,and they…
