In this course, you will learn how the internal combustion engine works for a four and a two stroke engine.
Internal combustion (IC) engines are not only used in the automotive and automobile engineering industries. They are used to rotate pumps, generator rotors, fans and many other machines. But what are internal combustion engines? Why do we use petrol/gasoline and diesel fuels instead of just one type of fuel? How do these astounding machines work? This course will answer all of these questions and many more!
In this course, you will learn how petrol and diesel engines work and gain an understanding of the differences between them. You will learn how internal combustion (IC) engines work and be able to identify all of an engines main components and how they function. A few of the main components we will cover are; the crankshaft, piston and camshaft. You will also learn how the two-stroke and four-stroke engines work.
Irrespective of your background, learning about internal combustion engines will benefit you greatly. They are used as prime movers in cars, vans, trains, motorbikes, scooters, lawnmowers, leaf blowers and most importantly, ships. So even if you are not an engineer or training to become one, the knowledge you gain will always be useful, because a combustion engine is never far away!
This course is taught by an engineer with 17 years experience...you're in good hands!
Interactive 3D models have been used to show you every engine component in detail. 3D animations show how each engine and component works and 2D images have been used to highlight areas of interest.
