Internal Combustion Engine Basics
This online engineering PDH video presentation discusses the basics of internal combustion engines. This course describes the main components of an engine, presents the differences between diesel and petrol engines as well as the working principles of two and four-stroke engines.
Internal combustion (IC) engines are used as the prime movers in cars, vans, trains, motorbikes, scooters, lawnmowers, leaf blowers and many other machines.
Internal combustion engines are not only used in the automotive engineering and automobile engineering industries, but are also used to rotate pumps, generator rotors, fans and many other machines. What are internal combustion engines? Why do we use petrol/gasoline and diesel fuels instead of just one type of fuel? And how do these machines work? This course will answer all of these questions.
This 2 PDH online video presentation is intended primarily for mechanical engineers, as well as others interested in learning more about internal combustion engines.
This continuing education video presentation is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
