About This Class

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 about this truly amazing machine.

You will learn:

  • How An Engine Works

  • How Two Stroke and Four Stroke Engines Work

  • The Difference Between Petrol/Gasoline and Diesel Engines

  • Engine Components (Piston Rings, Rocker Arms, Valves etc.)

  • Engine Systems (Water, Oil, Air, Exhaust and Electrical)

  • Engine Terminology (BDC, TDC, Firing Order etc.)

  • How Engine Ancillaries Work (Turbocharger, Supercharger etc.)

  • 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 take you from zero to hero concerning combustion engine knowledge. Even if you already have some background knowledge, this course will serve as an efficient refresher. Whatever your level of understanding, or engineering background (oil and gas, marine, power etc.), I can guarantee you will have never taken an engineering course like this one (unless you have taken one of my other courses!).

Interactive 3D models are used extensively to show you each individual engine component and how components work together to complete useful work. 

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 forget to download the free PDF that is attached, it gives you access to over 30 interactive 3D models that you can use to consolidate what you have learnt!

Don't waste more time reading this course description, check-out the course! :)
