Mercedes Benz which launched its Mercedes Benz S 500 V8 Petrol car this year earlier just made the market to yell a 'Wow' has now been on strike with the trending new Diesel Car, Mercedes Benz S 350 CDI .
It pretty good and sleek with striking LED Lamps and consists of big chromed Grille. Another point is to note that the Sound insulation seems great.
The aluminium is chassis is ultra light and has a long wheel base and the Air suspension is worth noting.
It also sports a pair of cameras fitted in the windscreen reads the road upto 15 metres and sends the signals to the suspension and so the Suspension system is aware of the next step to overcome the potholes or the other surfaces the car is going to encounter.

Secure way of sharing a Secret-- One Time Secret!!

Technology has been evolved to the very best of its kind by now and mainly in the field of communication, the development is marvelous but sacrifice of privacy is the cost! Dig into the article to get the trick to send the encrypted message that can be handled only by the intended recipient

With the advent of the advanced technologies of communication starting from the Telegraph, Radio, Mobile Phones, Smart Phones (indeed Blackberry, iPhone, Android) ,Video calls(Skype,Facetime), Emails , Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp etc., we are standing just an inch away from our dear ones and Business People though we are light years  (Just Kidding -- but indeed Hundreds and hundreds of miles) away.

But the notabene fact behind these communication made us lose our privacy a bit and we are the verge of the fact that we are being spied. Since  many of the servers and service providers (Not mentioning all though but some) are spying the database records of the customers to get the information they need to develop their business grow.

I am here to share a thought of a Service I recently got to know for sharing the very important messages so securely in an encrypted way and can be seen only by the recipient that will last for only a stipulated time, the ONE TIME SECRET. com website.

Lets take a deep dive to know how to send encrypted message using that.  (Seems I am sharing a secret with you!! :P )

Follow the Screenshots below or the Steps at your ease.

                                                                  Screenshot 1

Screenshot 2


1. Login to the

2. Enter the Message (Secret) you wish to convey and type a Passphrase.

3. And after clicking the Create Secret Link will generate a link.

4. You will be directed to a new page where a link is generated for you.

5. Mail that to the intended recipient and you are done.

6. If the recipient is receiving the link and types the Pass Phrase you informed them, they can see your secret message.

Note: The Message will not be displayed if Pass Phrase is wrong and the link works only once.


Happy that I boosted a Sherlock in you! Try it.

Clutch Facing Materials

Clutch facing materials should have the following Properties:

  • The clutch wear depends on the rubbing speed and the intensity of pressure acting on the clutch plate.(The most recommended speed is 30 m/s and pressure intensity should not exceed 100 kPa)
  • High Coefficient of Friction
  • High resistance to Heat ( Max temperature withstanding capacity can go up to 330 Degree Celsius

What are the different types of Clutch facing Materials?

1. Leather (Co-efficient of Friction is 0.27)
2. Cork (Co-efficient of Friction is 0.32)
3. Fabric (Co-efficient of Friction is 0.4)
4. Asbestos (Co-efficient of Friction is 0.2)
5. Reybestos and Ferodo (Co-efficient of Friction is 0.35)
6. Non Asbestos (Co-efficient of Friction is 0.36)

Project Topics for Mechanical Engineering Students

Projects really have a very big impact in making the students to work on the huge page of theories they have studied and to practically apply them all at a place. Also it enhances their knowledge and it serves as a good platform for the innovations which in some or the other way assists Human for their well being.

In this post, I have included the topics for the Mechanical Engineering students to chose wisely the project topics. These topics are mainly added to make the students to select a best one to work on.
The students can take the project title as same or additionally add up the features or can be clubbed up with one another project as well...


1. Automatic multi point grease gun

2. Fabrication of rotating forklift

3. Automatic Pneumatic paper cup making Machine

How to model a 3D TANK in ANSYS

Creation of Model Involving Extrusion and Extruded Cut option using ANSYS(Extrude1, Extrude2, Subtract= Extrude1-Extrude2)

We are just going to model a Cuboid shape(By Simple Extrude option) and make it as a hollow one by Subtracting a smaller Extruded Cuboid from it.

Inputs Given

Type of Element : Brick Solid 45

Model Given :

First open the ANSYS Product Launcher as shown in the Screen Shot.
Start< All Programs< ANSYS Folder< ANSYS Product Launcher

*Note : You can also start the ANSYS by double Clicking the ANSYS Icon but by opening the ANSYS Program through ANSYS Product Launcher has many advantages like Setting of Working Directory and Setting JobName very easily. But the another method as specified latter will make the setting of working directory, JobName a little bit complex

STEP 1 : Now Set a working Directory and Set JobName as you like else type "TANK" and click run at the bottom of the Product Launcher Window.

STEP 2 : Click Preferences in the ANSYS Main Menu(Left Side tab with white background) and check the Structural checkbox and click OK

STEP 3:(Skip This Step if you don't want to analyse the model at present)
Setting the Element type:
Click Preprocessor< Element Type< Add/Edit/Delete and you will get a window like this.

After getting this window,click Add in the window and you will get another window.

Choose Solid under the Structural Mass Category and Pick Brick 8node 45 and Click on OK and Pick Close to exit the window.
(As shown in Picture above)

Go to Modelling in the ANSYS Main menu that is seen in the left side of the Screen and follow the Steps:

Create < Areas < Rectangle < By 2 Corners

A window as shown in figure will rise up. Just follow the values in the Picture (i.e.)

WP X = 0 (Fill as 0 or leave Blank)
WP Y = 0 (Fill as 0 or leave Blank)
Width = 10
Height = 5

And Pick OK

The result is a Rectangular Area with the Dimensions we entered.

Pick the Isometric view Icon from the Model Control Tool Bar as shown in the Picture below.

Go to Modelling< Operate< Extrude< Along Normal and you will get a window as shown in picture. Now Pick the Area by Left clicking on the area we have created and press Apply.

And now enter the value for Length of Extrusion as 10 and Pick OK

We are going to Create and Extrude a another rectangle with smaller dimensions in the reverse direction.

This step can be followed instead of Step 4 for the Creation of Extrude 

Go to Modelling in the ANSYS Main menu 

Click Create < Volumes < By Dimensions and Enter the values as shown in the Picture below:


X1= 1 X2= 9
Y1= 1 Y2= 4
Z1= 1 Z2= 10

And Click OK.

Now Right Click and Select Replot (Similar to Refresh in Windows OS)

The Output is a Smaller Cuboid enclosed inside a Larger Cuboid.

To see clearly, Just Select Lines from the Plot Tab on the Top of the window.

To return to the previous State, Select Volumes from the Plot Tab.

Now, Go to Modelling< Operate< Booleans< Subtract< Volumes

Now click on the Outer(Larger Cuboid) and press Apply and then Click on the inner cuboid and now press OK.

Now Right Click and Select Replot.

You are Done Now...
