Since you like technology involving water, a video covering ram pumps and boost converters would be a nice two for one since their operating principles can be analogized.

As a kid I saw one of these sprinklers albeit a much larger version spraying a farmer's field. I went over to it to look at it and the "armature" or whatever swung back after it reached a particular degree of turn and smacked me in the head hard. I never went near one since.

Great video, but you missed one last feature. Those wire clips on the bottom serve a useful function. You can rotate them on the main shaft and change how much the sprinkler is allowed to rotate. By moving thing around the shaft with the control switch down, you can change the angle of rotational travel from just a few degrees to almost a full circle. You can also change what direction it is spraying in that way as well. This allows for more control of what you want to water.

so one weird thing i noticed is that with the CC on the video at the part where it shows the text about the word armature being used improperly that the CC shows up "can you believe i didn't put a ton of Jokes in this Bit?" but you never said that, do you type in the CC manually just wondering because i thought it was generated?

Thank you for taking the time to caption your videos for those of us with hearing issues, it makes the content way more accessible.

Investigate the other kind of sprinklers, a hoop that holds a spindle with a curved deflector that is inline with a hole in the hose adapter. It will spray a circle, up the water pressure and it will mist saturate a very wide area.

I think modern engineering could learn a lot from old mechanical gadgets. It's too easy to rely on electronics today, which sometimes fail. These sprinklers never fail. Gas station nozzles are another great example.

The relevant equation isn't so much F = ma as momentum = force * time. The impact occurs in very little time, hence large force.

I wonder if the lifting cone seal in the bottom bit balances the friction needed to turn with the impacts generated by the arm at all over a variety of water pressures? I.e. lower water pressure means lower force in the seal means lower friction and lower pressure means smaller arm impacts. Probably doesn't cancel out mathematically but at least the effects are in the right directions!

The "weridness" at 6:45 is possibly the lens breathing, this can happen when the focus is moving ever so slightly. it does seem to be amplified at footage slowed down.

The "What's this weirdness?" at roughly 6:44 would be in-camera compression doing its work to save space, but causing a visual artifact because of the moving green spoon :p

5 dager siden
BillShmithback
BillShmithback

The weirdness at 6:45 can have something to do with camera or video editing compression. When nothing changes between two frames in a video the compression is saving space by not remembering those two frames as individuals. This although happens when just parts of the frame changes. In your example the background is not really changing, it only gets interrupted by the swinging arm. This “confuses” the compression and is leading to this artefacts. Try and check out your raw files. Should not happen there.

This brought back a lot of memories. We had several of these at home when I was a kid. I used to watch them go, so I figured out how they work back then. They are indeed very ingenious. Sometimes one would get stuck and one of us had to get a little wet running up to it to get it unstuck. Good memories. Thanks! 🙂

Me too. Forward oscillation was easy enough, but figuring out how the same parts could also run backward took a bit of thinking. And the tough part about un-sticking them was getting out of the way before they got to the quick return part of the cycle.
