While concrete has been around in one form or another since before Roman times, in this era the cement was usually mixed by hand using a shovel or spade. However in the late 1920 when the automobile industry started to become popular so did the portable cement mixer or concrete mixer as it is more commonly know in the construction industry.
A cement mixer is device often used in the construction industry to produce a concrete substance, this is done by adding compound components such as the concrete powder, mortar and water together with the aid of a cement mixer to mix and fold these components to form what is known as a concrete substance which may be used for the application of bricklaying, foot paths or drive ways. A cement mixer is often used in the construction industry in large quantities however these devices can also be used by DIY householders due to the variety of mixers currently available in today’s market.
All mixers leverage power, torque and weight distribution to get the concrete to the site, but getting it out of the truck is where you'll see differences in truck designs. Most of the mixer fleet, especially older batch model trucks use a simple tip-and-pour method to get the concrete out of the mixer. A chute attaches to a port and the concrete pours out of the mixer to the project. Usually, the driver of the truck operates the machinery and aims the chute. Many transit mixers are coupled to a hydraulic lift bed that can tip up the drum, similar to a dump truck, if needed.
Other trucks, many of them volumetric and the newer transit mixers, use a pump to move the concrete from the truck to the project. The pumps, usually reciprocating piston pumps, can be mounted on the front or the rear of the truck. Having the pump in front allows the driver to maneuver to a section of the work site and direct the concrete from inside the cab. The controls can…...

INTRODUCTION The blockbuster race discrimination cases in recent years have all involved affirmative action and reverse discrimination. The Supreme Court has made it clear that race classifications, whether benign or invidious, will trigger rigid strict scrutiny analysis, which requires that the government prove its program is narrowly tailored to serve a compelling interest. In 2003, the Court, in Gratz v. Bollinger,1 ruled that while student diversity in educational institutions may be a compelling interest, an affirmative action......

Reverse Osmosis

...What is reverse osmosis? What is reverse osmosis? Reverse osmosis is a special kind of diffusion. The word reverse means the opposite of the original direction of movement and osmosis is the movement of water molecules from where they are plentiful to less abundant over a selectively permeable membrane. Therefore, reverse osmosis can be define as when the solvent passes through the selectively permeable membrane from where they are less abundant to where they are in abundance. In other words, reverse osmosis is the flow water molecules opposing the natural direction of osmosis through a porous membrane. The reverse osmosis process happens after the osmosis process. Therefore, in order to fully grasp the process of reverse osmosis one has to understand the process of osmosis first. When a lower concentrated solution and a higher concentrated solution are separated by a selectively permeable membrane, water naturally moves across the membrane to the higher concentrated solution to dilute it. In time, the osmotic pressure will counter the diffusion process precisely and then the solutions will be at equilibrium. No net movement of water will be at this stage. This process is called osmosis. But, if there is an adequate amount of counter pressure applied to the concentrated solution to overpower the osmotic pressure, then osmosis will be reversed. The solution is now coerced through the selectively permeable membrane contrary to the natural flow of water. This is......

Reverse Engineering Paper

...For our project we decided to disassemble and understand a Memphis 1 Channel Mono Block Amplifier. First we started by disassembling the amp down to the main circuit board. From there we assigned ourselves different components to understand what they were and how they worked inside the amp. We all researched our components and got back together to discuss and figure out the flow of power and operations of the amp worked. A general idea of what the amp does is as follows. Power comes into the inputs from the positive side of the car battery. A negative source comes from the car’s chassis to the negative terminal. The remote wire comes in from the head unit or source of sound to the remote input. When the source turns on, power runs from the remote wire to a relay inside that allows power to run through. Power then runs to various capacitors to store up power before running to the inductor that converts the power to usable power for the MOSFETs. As the power runs through the circuit, it eventually comes to resistors which slow up the current flow. Sound comes in through the inputs and to the MOSFET amplifiers. Then sound goes to the sound dampeners to clean the sound waves up before going to the sound outputs. To better understand the amp and its components we will branch off and explain each of the components and what they do. When a relay receives power, power runs through a set of coils and creates a magnetic field that actuates an arm inside and closes the......

Exploring Reverse Engineering

...Reverse engineering is the process of figuring out how something works by taking it apart piece by piece. Although this can be done with just about anything that you build; such as car engines, TVs, robotics, etc. when it comes to computers it originally was used to on the hardware end of things. Now that it is applied to the software end of things as well companies can use it as a way to learn and make new products more compatible with other products already out there. When it comes to reverse engineering software there are many benefits. Many people use it as a learning tool to better understand what they are trying to build and what their product is competing with. Some of the benefits of reverse engineering software would be to make products that are new and cheaper than the ones that came before. This way a company is able to take a product that is already out on the market and take it apart piece by piece and see how it works so they can rebuild it cheaper and more efficiently. One famous example of reverse engineering is in the mid-1980s Phoenix Technologies Ltd wanted to produce a BIOS for PCs that would be compatible with the IBM PCs proprietary BIOS. To protect themselves from any charges of illegally copying their BIOS they used what is called a clean room. With the clean room approach there are two teams; one that studies the BIOS that they are trying to recreate and they come up with a detailed report of what it is exactly the BIOS does without using any of the...

Reverse Discrimination

...Business Ethics Final Paper – Reverse Discrimination Reverse Discrimination is an issue that has come about in the work force today. “The law allows employers to discriminate among employees as long as the ground for discrimination are job-related, fair, and objective (242).” For example, “employers can promote a male employee over a female employee as long as the male is more qualified, the family has had an equal opportunity to qualify, and the standards for qualifications are fair and objective.” Although the law does provide equality between different employees, there are still some cases that rule that they are victims of reverse discrimination. This is shown in the case against firefighters and the City of New Haven. Firefighters in New Haven, Connecticut believe that they have been discriminated against. In June of 2009, the United States Supreme court rule that the City of New Haven had indeed discriminated against this group of firefighters who were not qualified for promotions. During this exam, “twenty firefighters, nineteen white and one Hispanic,” were denied the promotions and believed that they were victims of reverse discrimination (242). This exam examined that white exam takers were the most qualified firefighters. By a 5-4 vote, the U.S Supreme court did agree that these firefighters were victims of reverse discrimination. As an ethical person in this case study, I would have set up this exam completely different than they did. The results in the late...

Reverse Logistic

...REVERSE LOGISTICS DEFINATION: Flow of surplus or unwanted material, goods, or equipment back to the firm, through its logistics chain, for reuse, recycling, or disposal. In other words, reverse logistics is the management of any type of returns from any customer with a specific purpose. Products can be returned from any player within the supply chain or from the end-user for different reasons. Raw material, work-in-process or finished goods can be returned when there are surplus or leftovers during the customer’s production due to changes in manufacturing plan. Products maybe recalled for quality issues. Damaged product/package in delivery & unsold product can also incur returns. REASONS OF RESERVE LOGISTICS: The reasons for returning products can be distinguished by where the returns initiated. Listed below are the main return reasons for each supply chain partner. * Customer not satisfied: Most manufacturers and retailers allow customers to return products if they do not meet their demands within a predefined period. * Installation or usage problems: some customers experience problems with installation or usage of their recently acquired products. * Warranty claims: Defective products or parts can be sent back to retailers or the manufacturer for repair. Products might either be dead on arrival, not working according to specifications or cosmetically damaged. * Faulty order processing: Both end consumers and retailers can experience......

...[pic] Reverse Engineering a New Trend in Manufacturing [pic] Authors T.Dhamotharakumar* N.S.Ramesh* dhamotharan007@gmail.com nsrmechanical@gmail.com * Under graduate Student, K.S.R. College of Engineering, Tiruchengode Department of Mechanical Engineering [pic] Abstract With the significant capital investment in new equipment being placed into out years, more systems need to be maintained in their present condition for longer periods of time. There are often gaps in the technical support information needed to maintain a system built from older designs using outmoded or updated techniques or materials. In some situations, designers give a shape to their ideas by using clay, plaster, wood, or foam rubber, but a CAD model is needed to enable the manufacturing of the part. As products become more organic in shape, designing in CAD may be challenging or impossible. There is no guarantee that the CAD model will be acceptably close to the sculpted model. Reverse engineering provides a solution to this problem because the physical model is the source of information for the CAD model. This is also referred to as the part-to-CAD process. "Reverse Engineering is the process of taking a finished product and reconstructing design data in a format from which new parts or molds can be produced."-The Society of Manufacturing Engineers Key Words: Reverse Engineering, CAD, Modeling and......

Addressing Data in Memory The process through which the processor controls the execution of instructions is referred as the fetch-decode-execute cycle or the execution cycle. It consists of three continuous steps:  Fetching the instruction from memory  Decoding or identifying the instruction  Executing the instruction The processor may access one or more bytes of memory at a time. Let us consider a hexadecimal number 0725H. This number will require two bytes of memory. The high-order byte or most significant byte is 07 and the low-order byte is 25. The processor stores data in reverse-byte sequence, i.e., a low-order byte is stored in a low memory address and a high-order byte in high memory address. So, if the processor brings the value 0725H from register to memory, it will transfer 25 first to the lower memory address and 07 to the next memory address. x: memory address When the processor gets the numeric data from memory to register, it again reverses the bytes. There are......
