Mechanical Properties of Bamboo

During this ebook i've got accumulated many studies at the houses of bamboo. because i began bamboo examine in 1974, i've got accrued many guides on bamboo. notwithstanding, in contacts with different researchers I turned conscious of the truth that numerous of those courses have been unknown to them. therefore their actions in study or in bamboo tasks needed to begin at a decrease point than in the event that they had identified a few of these courses.

Sample text

The chest is a fabricated design that is partitioned to pass flow from each valve to a specified number of nozzles in the extraction diaphragm. The control range for these valves is ±10 percent of the normal pressure at that stage. The major benefit of the internal extraction valve gear is its ability to control the flow from wide open to only a small amount to the condensing section as required to keep that section cool. A double automatic extraction condensing steam turbine is shown in Fig. 14c.

Either bar lift or cam lift arrangements are common. These are shown in Figs. 4, respectively. The bar lift valve gear shown in Fig. 3 is relatively simple. A servo motor operates the lever that raises or lowers the horizontal bar that is enclosed in the steam chest. The governing valves hang loosely on the bar and are adjusted for length of stem so that they will open sequentially. There are typically five valves in this design but as many as seven valves have been used. The flow capacity of this type of design is limited to about 600,000 lb/h (273 T/H).

Each stem positions two internal spool valves, one each in the upper and lower halves of the turbine. The valves are designed to open sequentially, providing the efficiency advantage of multiple partial arc admissions to the immediate downstream stage group. An axial-flow extraction valve is shown for the second extraction. Axial-flow or grid valves are appropriate for lowpressure applications and high-volume flows. The additional benefit is the relatively short span that is required. Shown on the low-pressure end, which is the drive end, is a turning (barring) gear used to rotate the shaft when the turbine is cooling down.
