Language - English
Duration -1.5 hours
Internal combustion (IC) engines are not only used in the automotive engineering 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? And how do these astounding machines work? This course will answer all of these questions and many more!
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 many other machines. 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.
2D images have been used to highlight areas of interest.
Hope to see you on the course!
