  1. thanks for posting some additional elements like this, hope it will help for us who are preparing for board exams this coming Nov here in riyadh...thank you and more power

  2. cnu po bng magtatake ng ng board sa september?pashare po ng materials..salamt po..Makapasa sana tau..Godbless

  3. @ethan1968: I really dedicate this blog to especially to those who were not able to attend review centers for some reasons. Thanks for the visit, keep it up!

  4. ang gaganda ng mga terms na binigay nyo sir.sana madgdagan p para marefresh pa po kmi.tnx po

  5. @amateur_engineer: Thanks...more to come...I'm currently working on engineering mechanics questions (computations). It may take two days more to complete it.

  6. Slamat Po sa Mga Elements Esp sa ENg;s Eco pero parang Marami pang Kulang E

  7. ano po b ang biggest percentage n llbas s board this september.. god bless!!!

  8. @ Liane: the most honest answer is: I don't know! But I think it will just be similar to the previous exams. More elements than computations. In math, I think there will be many economy problems and elements that will turn up. This is how recent board exams turned out to be, so I guess this is the safest ASSUMPTION I could have.

  9. please complete other parts of Materials & Heat Treatment Elements...I haven't received Part 2 Questions/Answers...Part 3, I'm still waiting for the answers to rate myself..
    ..thank you very much for your full support...

PAST MECHANICAL BOARD EXAM QUESTION: Machine Design Set-1 (solutions and answers)

The following are the solutions and answers to MODIFIED PAST MECHANICAL BOARD EXAM QUESTION: Machine Design Set-1 posted on this blog last Saturday, November 14, 2009. Again, I want to stress out that most of the questions here are modified from its original form for the purpose of improving the question. Past Mechanical Engineering Board Exam Question Number 1 A 4 inches diameter short shaft carrying 2 pulleys close to the bearings transmits how much horsepower if the shaft makes 120 rpm. A.200HP               B. 199 HP C.198 HP               D. 202 HP P = (D3N )/38 -- for mula for short shafts from PSME code P = (4)3(120)/38 P= 202 HP Past Mechanical Engineering Board Exam Question Number 2 An instrument that measures the hardness of the work piece in terms of elasticity. a. Durometer b. Scleroscope c. Mohs's Scale d. Brinell Tester Source: Machinery’s Handbook


Here are the solutions to board problems given at Power Subject Set-1. If you do not understand anything, feel free to write a comment voicing out your concern. I'm still looking for better ways to present my solution. I still don't know how to present equations and mathematical symbols with blogger. Please bear with me. 1. An automobile tire is inflated to 32psig pressure at 50 degree F. After being driven, the temperature rises to 75 degree F. Determine the final gage pressure assuming the volume remains constant. (Electrical Engineering Board Exam Problem) Solution: Since volume is constant, use Charles’ Law on constant volume processes. P1/T1=P2/T2 Note: P and T should be absolute. (32+14.7)/ (50+460) =P2/ (75+460) P2=48.99 psia Converting back to gage pressure, P2g=48.99-14.7 P2g=34.29 psig 2. Four hundred cubic centimeters of gas at a pressure of 740 mmHg absolute and temperature of 18 degree C undergoes a process until the pressure and temperature be

BOARD EXAM TIP: Which Review Center?

First of all, I would like to apologize for a long time I haven't posted anything but introduction. The reason for that is I'm busy optimizing the design of this site. I'm hoping that the make over is good. Anyway, I would like to dedicate this article to those who are going to take/retake the board exam this coming October. My sincere wish that you bring out the best among yourselves and may the deserving ones pass the exam. Going back to the One-Million-Peso worth question: "Which review center should I enroll?" , I would like to answer that in the most unbiased way I can. Of course, I'm only human and I had also my preferences but I will try my best to hide it. To start with I will enumerate some of the prominent review centers that offer board exam reviews for mechanical engineering in the Philippines. 1. Alcorcon (Cebu & Manila) 2. Excel (Cebu & Manila) 3. Linx Engineering (Manila) 4. MERIT (Manila) 5. PRIME (Cebu) 6. RLB's
