COURSE TITLE: Principles of an Internal Combustion Engine
COURSE NO: M03-051
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.

COURSE TITLE: Overview, Installation and Maintenance of Pumps, Valves and Piping
COURSE NO: M07-004
COURSE PROVIDER: Elie Tawil, P.E., LEED AP
Overview, Installation and Maintenance of Pumps, Valves and Piping
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course covers the basic operating principles of pumps, discusses their different types, and explains their installation and maintenance methodologies. This course also presents the auxiliary components such as the different types of valves, piping and other accessories typically used in pump systems.

 

A pump is a device that uses an external source of power to force the fluid to move from one place to another. A pump develops no energy of its own; it merely transforms energy from the external source, such as a gasoline or electric motor, into mechanical kinetic energy, which is manifested by the motion of the fluid.

 

A valve is any device used to control fluids in a closed system, and is typed or classified according to its use in a system. This course will discuss valve construction and the most common types of valves used in the industry.

 

The control and application of fluid power would be impossible without a suitable means of conveying the fluid from the power source to the point of application. Fluid lines used for this purpose are called piping. They must be designed and installed with the same care applicable to other components of the system. To obtain this desired result, attention must be given to the various types, materials, and sizes of lines available for the fluid power system.

 

This 7 PDH online course is intended for mechanical engineers as well as others who are interested in gaining general knowledge of pumps, valves, and pipes in fluid systems.
