Heat Exchangers
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes the construction of plate heat exchangers as well as tube and shell heat exchangers. It also describes the flow patterns and temperature profiles in parallel flow, counter flow, and cross flow heat exchangers.

 

The transfer of thermal energy between fluids is one of the most important and frequently used processes in engineering. The transfer of heat is usually accomplished by means of a device known as a heat exchanger. Common applications of heat exchangers include boilers, fan coolers, cooling water heat exchangers, and condensers.

 

This 2 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical and chemical engineers, nuclear facility operators, maintenance personnel, and technical staff to fully understand the impact that their actions may have on the safe and reliable operation of facility components and systems.

COURSE TITLE: Principles of an Internal Combustion Engine
COURSE NO: M03-046
COURSE PROVIDER: Elie Tawil, P.E., LEED AP
Principles of an Internal Combustion Engine
Course Highlights

This online engineering course presents the operational principles and basic mechanisms of the internal combustion engine.

 

The power of an internal combustion engine comes from burning a mixture of fuel and air in a small, enclosed space. When this mixture burns, it expands significantly; building pressure that pushes the piston down, in turn rotating the crankshaft. Eventually, this motion is transferred through the transmission and out to the drive wheels to move the vehicle.

 

The automobile is a familiar object to all of us. The engine that moves it is one of the most fascinating and talked about of all the complex machines we use today. This machine is what we call the internal combustion engine.

 

This 3 PDH online course is intended for mechanical and industrial engineers, designers, manufacturers and anyone interested in gaining a better understanding of the basics of an internal combustion engine.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Understanding the principles of operation, the different classifications, the measurements and performance standards of an internal combustion engine
  • Identifying the series of events /cycles in a gasoline engine
  • Identifying the series of events /cycles in a diesel engine
  • Understanding the differences between a four-stroke cycle engine and a two-stroke cycle engine
  • Recognizing the differences in the types, cylinder arrangements, and valve arrangements of internal combustion engines
  • Identifying the terms, engine measurements, and performance standards of an internal combustion engine

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
  • Learning the types and components of centrifugal and positive displacement pumps
  • Understanding cavitation and cavitation prevention measures
  • Performing Net Positive Suction Head calculations
  • Understanding the characteristic curves of centrifugal and positive displacement pumps
  • Understanding the protection methods of centrifugal and positive displacement pumps

COURSE TITLE: Code of Ethics for Engineers
COURSE NO: LE1-001
Code of Ethics for Engineers
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course introduces engineers to the National Society of Professional Engineers Code of Ethics. The Code provides ethical guidance to engineers in their various and often simultaneously held roles as 1) guardians of public health, safety, and welfare 2) employees, 3) employers, and 4) providers of technical service to clients.

 

Engineers practicing their profession encounter not only technical issues but also ethical issues. Sometimes the latter issues are easy to resolve: applying everyday, common-sense notions of honesty, openness, responsibility, and lawfulness is sufficient to guide the engineer to the appropriate decision. At other times, however, matters are more complicated. In particular, knowing what to do when two or more duties or obligations conflict can be difficult. For example, an engineer's duty to his client or employer may conflict with the engineer's duty to the general public. Codes of ethics have been formulated to help engineers address these conflicts.

 

This 1 PDH online course is intended for all engineers who are interested in gaining a better understanding about how to protect and respect their engineering profession in the utmost manner.
