Internal Combustion Engine Basics (Mechanical Engineering)

Learn how internal combustion engines work! Learn all of a combustion engine’s main components and how they work!

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!

What you’ll learn

  • How petrol and diesel engines work..
  • How internal combustion (IC) engines work..
  • How two stroke engines work..
  • How four stroke engines work..
  • What the differences between petrol/gasoline and diesel engines are..
  • Identify all of an engine’s main components and their function (crankshaft, piston, camshaft etc.)..

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!

 

You will learn:

  • How two stroke engines work.
  • How four stroke engines work.
  • How internal combustion (IC) engines work.
  • What the differences between petrol/gasoline and diesel engines are.
  • How petrol and diesel engines work.
  • Identify all of an engine’s main components and their function (crankshaft, piston, camshaft etc.).
  • Know all of an engines ancillary systems and what they do (oil, fuel, water etc.).

 

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!
