Course Purposes

This course aims to improve understanding of the automobile engines and their operation and to use them to experience how materials on fluid mechanics, thermodynamics, and heat transfer studied in previous years integrates into a total engineering concept. The course also aims to advance student’s problem solving skills such that the basics learned from the course can be used to deal with the real research and engineering challenges.

Course Objectives:

By the end of this course the participant will be able to
  • identify advantages and disadvantages of the operation and efficiency of automobile engines of all types.
  •   describe the key pollutants associated with combustion in engines and understand their significance with respect to health and the environment;
  •   describe basics of the combustion and pollutant formation processes.
  •  perform basic calculations relating to the performance and emissions of automobile engines.
