COURSE TITLE: Fundamentals of Fluid Power
COURSE NO: M04-050
COURSE PROVIDER: Elie Tawil, P.E., LEED AP
Fundamentals of Fluid Power
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course discusses the fluid power of pumped or compressed fluids which generate force and motion in different types of mechanisms. 

 

Fluid power is a term that describes the generation, control, and application of smooth, effective power of pumped or compressed fluids (either liquids or gases) to provide force and motion to mechanisms. This force and motion may be in the form of pushing, pulling, rotating, regulating, or driving. Fluid power includes hydraulics and pneumatics, which involve liquids and gases, respectively.

 

The extensive use of hydraulics and pneumatics to transmit power is due to the fact that properly constructed fluid power systems possess a number of favorable characteristics as they eliminate the need for complicated systems and provide a smooth, flexible, uniform action without vibration, and without being affected by variations of load. Moreover, fluid power systems offer a favorable and an economical operation, covering wide ranges of motion and requiring minimal need for hand control.

 

This 4 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical and civil engineers who are interested in learning more about fluid power systems, the operation of its components and the general principles which are common to all physical mechanisms.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Familiarizing with the fundamentals of fluid power
  • Learning about the states of matter and the factors affecting them
  • Understanding the characteristics and behavior of fluids at rest and in motion

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.

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.

 

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.
