one More PME for PSME MHC


Mabel Berdin ovember 13, 2009 marks the day when PSME MHCs very own director Engineer Malcolm Mesina took oath as a Professional Mechanical Engineer. Passing the Professional Mechanical Engineer Board Exam requires dedication and focus especially for professionals. The exam is testimonial in nature. It covers two oral exams. The first exam is a panel interview by the Engineer Malcolm Mesina (center) with wife Kathy Board of Mechanical Engineering on any Meand proud dad Benito during the new Professional chanical Engineering related topics which is Mechanical Engineers oath taking. very broad including Refrigeration, Air-conditioning, Boilers, Machine Design, Power, and Industrial Plant Engineering. After passing the first exam, the applicant must submit a complete plant design selected by the Board of Mechanical Engineering within a period of 2 months. Afterwhich he must defend it to the Board. Engineer Mesina proved his competency and dedication to his work when he passed as a Professional Mechanical Engineer. Although it required a lot of time and effort, it not only benefited his company Unilever, but also contributed to his personal and professional development.

PSME Professional Development Course


Brilliant Chua ast February, PSME Manila Host Chapter held a three day seminar entitled the Professional Development Course at the Philippine Columbian Association in Paco, Manila. The Professional Development Course aims to better prepare the aspiring participants for the Professional Mechanical Engineering Licensure Examination. By first, informing the participants of the qualifications and requirements in taking the examination. And second, prepare them for the interview examination and thesis presentation. Even though the engineers in the program are preparing for the professional mechanical engineering licensure examination, most of us have worked on their own fields and need help to refresh on other areas in mechanical engineering. Being one of the 19 participants in the seminar, I found the program very helpful in preparing us for the interview as well as the thesis report. The seminar was divided into three Saturdays, February 13, 20 & 27. It covered topics such as Elevators, Boilers, HVAC, Engineering Economics, the RA Code 8495 just to list a few. The lectures were discussed by engineers who are expert in their respective fields. We were taught in detail on how to present the thesis. And on the last day, the participants were given the chance to interact with National President Renato Florencio and PRC Chairman Engr. Alfredo Po with a Question and Answer Portion. All in all, I could say that the program was successful. And hopefully, more programs will follow. Theres a big demand for Professional Mechanical Engineers in the industry today. And programs like the Professional Development Course will promote the Mechanical Engineering Profession. As the motto of the program states: It may not be easy. But it is not that hard! Good luck to everyone taking the challenge.

In 2010, the societys focus is Going For Chapter Excellence and is looking forward to more agressive activities & projects that would enhance the Philippine Mechanical Engineering profession, particularly that of the implementation of R.A. 8495, known as the Mechanical Engineering law. It would also continue to vigorously pursue its advocacy regarding climate change through the participation of its members (by the application of their Mechanical Engineering skills and knowledge) in checking the rise in global temperature.

TECHNICAL FEATUrE

Tire Safety
Michelin Tyres Company ost of us operate motor vehicles on a daily basis and hardly ever pay any attention to one of the most vital parts of the vehicle which are our tires. Unfortunately very few of us change this bad habit until it is too late. Tires expire 4 years after the date of manufacture and this date is stamped on the side of the tire. It is very easy to find out what the expiration date is on a tire, if you check on the side of it, you will have a 4 digit number stamped on it, this number indicates the week and the year it was manufactured, the expiration date will be 4 years later. If we use expired tires these are likely to burst and result in a very serious or even a fatal accident, it would be a good practice for us to check our tires and make sure they have not passed their expiration date. Another important point that we miss many times is proper tire inflation most of the gas stations will calibrate your tires at 28 PSI and if you are going to travel they will even in many cases bring your pressure down to 24-26 PSI because they will heat up on the highway and the pressure will come back up. Do not allow this. On the side of the tire, you will also find the maximum allowable inflating pressure for that specific tire,

Did you know that tires expire 4 years after the date of manufacture and this date is stamped on the side of the tire?

some tires have a maximum pressure of 32 PSI some are rated at 44PSI and some even at 50 PSI. Check your specific tire to see what the maximum pressure is for your tires, it is an acceptable practice to have your tires a few pounds below maximum allowable pressure but not too much. Different tires are designed for different pressures you will find your maximum tire inflation pressure on a small number next to the rim on the side of the tire, never exceed this pressure. Lower pressure increases tire heat, infrared photography of tires tested at high speed damaging heat increases as pressure drops. Another important point to consider is the load we put on our tires, many times we overload our vehicles without paying any attention to the strain this puts on our tires, exceeding the maximum load rating on a tire may also lead to tire failure and could result in an accident. TEMPERATURE RESISTANCE The letters will indicate a tires resistance to heat. Tires are rated from highest to lowest resistance as A, B or C Symbol Area A Hot area Area Caliente B Normal Area Area Normal C Cold Area Area Fria TRACTION Traction is a tires ability to stop on wet pavement. A higher graded tire should allow you to stop your vehicle on a wet road in a shorter distance than a tire with lower grade. Traction is graded from highest to lowest as AA, A, B and C TREADWEAR This number will give you the rate at which the tire wears out, the higher the treadwear the longer it should take for the tire to wear out. Hence, a tire graded at 400 should last twice as long as a tire graded at 200 WHAT WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT TIRES Date of manufacturing Maximum inflating pressure Traction Treadwear Maximum load capacity per tire Speed Rating Temperature resistance Tire size We hope this information was useful to you.
