## Mechanical Engineering Technology: Clean Energy And Linear Motion Mechanism

You can see two sliders. I apply force using one slider to another slider. Best part is one slider move little bit

and helps second slider

to slide 6 times length at 70 % force.

## Cam Follower Prototype- GIF File

This is my cam follower prototype for clean energy cheaper than coal. Cam is used to open and close valve of internal combustion engine. I am going to show you another use. In my cam follower system,

1. Follower is off set.

2. Force is applied from follower to cam. Since the follower is off set this force help cam to rotate.

## Explanation Of Theory On Cam Follower Mechanism For Clean Energy.

I have made video For explanation of cam follower prototype for clean energy cheaper than coal. You can find more information about my prototype at http://mechanicalresearch.info/

## Mechanism To Increase Energy Efficiency.

View the figure attached. It is about using Cam for increase
energy efficiency. Cam are generally used to open and close valve of IC
Engine. I am going to show you another use. Left side initial position.
Right side final position. Redius of cam continuously decrease.Sliding
weight (MG) applied on Cam. With the help of rope weight(MG*Cos(b)) is
fixed with cam. We consider b as 45. So cos 45=.70. This fixed weight
should be 0.70 MG. Which balance the sliding weight applied on cam in
tengential direction. As sliding weight come down the fixed weight go
up. But the twist is the redius of cam decrease nominal continuously.
So sliding weight come down little bit and fixed weight go up much
more. We consider sliding weight come dowm H2 height and fixed weight

## Energy Security, Global Warming and Engineering

One research report (Energy Security.pdf) is attached with this post. It is about how we can use engineering to slove energy and global warming problem.

## Mechanism to increase energy efficiency

As shown in figure two pulleys can rotate about their axis. Stationary
plate is simply supported on these two pulleys. Now the weight of
stationary plate applied on each pulley in vertical downward direction
is Mg/2. This Mg/2 will divided in two parts. One is tangential and
second is towards the center. Tangential part will help to rotate
pulleys and toward the center part will generate the friction.

Force is stationary and it can help to rotate pulleys at some angle.

## Rotate pulleys using less energy

As shown in figure (energyefficiency1.jpg) sliding plates can slide over fixed plates. Stationary plate is simply supported horizontaly on sliding plates. Lubrication is provided at contact surfaces of stationary plate and sliding plates. Weight or load or force (mg) is applied at center of stationary plate. This load is equally devided and applied on each sliding plate in vertical downward direction (mg/2). This mg/2 cos(alpha) helps sliding plate to slide in nearly downward direction.
