Net Zero: Home Energy Systems

2020-09-15T12:38:37-07:00

Net Zero energy homes are just like any home except more appropriate in today's world.   Regular grid-tied homes that are so air-tight, well insulated, and energy-efficient that they produce as much renewable energy as they consume over a year. Occupants virtually receive no energy bill and a carbon-free home.  A Net Zero energy home combines advanced design and superior building systems with energy efficiency and on-site solar panels.   Homes are ultra-comfortable, healthy, quiet, sustainable that is affordable. (1) https://glewengineering.com/engineers-organize-smart-homes/ In addition, engineers will work hard toward the development of personalized energy units, manufactured, distributed, and installed inexpensively. One can envision [...]

Energy Efficient Solutions for Everyday Energy Efficiency Problems

2019-09-12T14:33:10-07:00

As energy efficient environmentally conscious engineers, we here at Glew Engineering do what we can to save energy and resources both around home and around the office.  This might mean choosing products that are more environmentally friendly or energy efficient.  It might mean using our surroundings to our advantage, like pulling cold air through a home or office at night so the building needs less air conditioning the next day.  The most satisfying thing, though, is to employ our knowledge of mechanical engineering, materials science and thermal management to design custom hand-tooled solutions.  In the next few blog posts, I'll [...]

Wind Load CFD Modeling for Rooftop Elements Compared to ASCE 7

2018-02-20T11:28:46-08:00

  Wind Load Comparison between CFD and ASCE 7 for Rooftop shapes Welcome back to our blog series on the phenomenon called Wind Load CFD Modeling and how it affects civil and mechanical engineers.  Wind Load is the force that blowing wind exerts on any device or structure that extends above ground level.  After an initial introduction to the factors that affect wind load on an object, I compared three different sets of wind load calculation methods using three simple objects, hypothetically placed on a 100-foot-tall building.  Starting with generic drag equation for the first equation, added two modification coefficients [...]

Italian Masters: Volta Jump-Starts Electrical Engineering

2018-02-21T10:28:40-08:00

Italian Masters: Volta Jump-Starts Electrical EngineeringFigure 1: Girolamo Cardano (1501-1576) Welcome back to our series on Italian Masters of math and science.  Last week I wrote about Galileo’s extensive accomplishments both in the field of astronomy and beyond.  This week, I’ll take a look at another renaissance polymath who dabbled in astronomy, along with his work in mathematics, medicine, biology, chemistry, philosophy, and gambling (yes, seriously): Girolamo Cardano.  Cardano is a less well-known figure than Galileo or some of the other scientists I’ve written about who have famous equations or units of measurement named after them, like Volta or Torricelli.  He [...]

Italian Masters: Galileo’s Stellar Science and Engineering

2018-02-21T10:55:17-08:00

Portrait of Galileo Galilei Justus Sustermans [Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons I’d like to return to our previous series on the Italian Masters, focused not on the usual masters or painting and sculpture but on the masters or science, mathematics, and engineering.  So far in the series I’ve written about the accomplishments of Volta, Cassini, Venturi and Torricelli.  Today, I’d like to look at one of the greats: Galileo Galilei.  Galileo is most famous today for standing up for heliocentrism against the Catholic Church and spending the last years of his life under house arrest as [...]
