Basic Machines Part 1
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course discusses the six simple machines: the lever, the block, the wheel and axle, the inclined plane, the screw and the gear. When you familiarize with the principles of these simple machines, you can readily understand the operation of complex machines.

 

A machine is any device that helps you to do work. It may help by changing the amount of force or the speed of action. Machines may also be used to change the direction of a force or in other cases transform energy; for example, a generator transforms mechanical energy into electrical energy. Complex machines are basically combinations of two or more simple machines.

COURSE TITLE: Centrifugal and Positive Displacement Pumps
COURSE NO: M03-002
COURSE PROVIDER: Elie Tawil, P.E., LEED AP
Centrifugal and Positive Displacement Pumps
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course explains the operation of centrifugal and positive displacement pumps. In general a pump is a mechanical device that is used to raise the flow of a fluid from one elevation to the other by increasing the pressure of the fluid.

 

Centrifugal pumps use a centripetal force, which is defined as the action that causes the fluid to move away from its center of rotation. Where as positive displacement pumps physically entrap a quantity of liquid at the suction of the pump and push that quantity out the discharge of the pump.

 

This 3 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical engineers, plant operators, maintenance personnel, and technical staff who are interested in gaining a better understanding centrifugal and displacement pump design and operation.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Learning the principle of operation of centrifugal and positive displacement pumps
