 How do you determine the direction of fluid flow in a pipe without directly interacting with what's inside?4 AnswersMeasure temperature, noise, etc.Relative height of two endsMeasure the longitudinal strain at two points along the path of the pipe. The flow direction will be from highest to lowest strain. Measures shear stress. Measure lateral strain like longitudinal strain, associated with fluid pressure. Pressure gradient will be from high strain to low strain.Show More ResponsesUsing atleast 2 Ultrasonic wave transmitter/receiver

 You have a tank of water with max depth H and a spout of diameter d at the bottom. The spout is held shut by a stopper forced in with a spring mounted on a fixed surface. How do you find the force that the spring needs to exert to keep the spout closed.1 Answeryou know pressure at spout by pgh, force on stopper = P*A. balanced by force from spring, k*x. Assume initial conditions of no flow, spout closed, and spout diam large enough to ignore pressure loss in pipe.

 Some questions are quite easy and basic, while others are very diffecult to answer. Simple qeustions can be explaining the stress strain curves, three modes of heat transfer, turbulent flow vs laminar flow, pressure and FBD in a combustion cylinder, or cantilever beam, etc. They might also ask you technical questions based on past experience.Be the first to answer this question

 Any experience with life-cycle and accelerated product testing.1 AnswerWithin my current role, we use accelerated product testing in our life-cycle testing. Using DFMEAs, Technical Profiles, and Engineering Standard Work, we define our Design Verification Plan and Report, which outlines the necessary testing to ensure we meet our end of life goal. To reduce cost and test time, we use accelerated tests to gain confidence in our design by increasing the test's load factor.
