Principles of an Internal Combustion Engine

Principles of an Internal Combustion Engine
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH interactive presentation presents the theory and operation of an internal combustion engine and the various terms associated with them.

Engineers and mechanics’ job is to diagnose and correct troubles much easier, which in turn saves time, effort, and money. Thus, they are concerned with conducting various adjustments to vehicles and equipment, repairing and replacing their worn out broken parts, and ensuring that they are serviced properly and inspected regularly. To perform these duties competently, they must fully understand the operation and function of the various components of an internal combustion engine.

This 1 PDH online interactive presentation is intended primarily for mechanical and industrial engineers, designers, manufacturers and anyone interested in gaining a better understanding of the basics of an internal combustion engine.
