About This Class

Mechanical Engineering Series - learn more about the diesel engine (internal combustion engine)!

Without exception, the reciprocating piston engine is the most influential machine ever invented by mankind. From its early beginnings as a steam engine, the piston engine has revolutionised the way we live, work and travel. This course will teach you more about this truly amazing machine.

You will learn about:

  • Detailed two stroke and four stroke cycles.

  • Detailed two and four stroke timing diagrams.

  • Thermodynamic gas cycles (Otto, Diesel etc.).

  • Maintenance strategies (breakdown, scheduled, predictive etc.)

  • How an engine is started (starter circuit).

  • Centrifugal and electrical-hydraulic governors.

  • What indicator and compression diagrams are.

  • Engine protection - how to protect using temperature, pressure, flow and level measurements.

  • And a lot lot more!

*** Note that this course focuses more on the diesel fired engine type rather than the petrol/gasoline type, but gives a general good overview concerning the internal combustion (IC) engine. The video is part of the Mechanical Engineering video series.***

The course is designed to build on the knowledge gained in the Diesel Engine Fundamentals course, although this course is also suitable to anyone who already has some diesel engine background knowledge.

The course is packed with 2D images, 2D animations and 3D animations.

Written content has been read aloud so that you can 'learn on the go' without needing to watch the screen constantly.

Don't waste more time reading this course description, check-out some of the lessons! I hope to see you on the course!

All the best,

Jon
