Course Summary

This course provides the fundamentals of diesel engines, heat exchangers, pumps and Valves. This course provides information covering the basic operating principles of 2-cycle and 4-cycle diesel engines. And also describes the operation of engine governors, fuel ejectors, and protective features of the typical engine.

This course describes the construction of plate heat exchangers and tube and shell heat Exchangers and also describes the flow patterns and temperature profiles in parallel flow, counter flow, and cross flow heat exchangers. The operation of centrifugal and positive displacement pumps, and various terms like net positive suction head, cavitations, gas binding, and pump characteristic curves are explained in detail.

This course introduces the functions of the basic parts common to most types of valves and provides information on applications of many types of valves. Types of valves covered include gate valves, globe valves, ball valves, plug valves, diaphragm valves, reducing valves, pinch valves, butterfly valves, needle valves, check valves, and safety/relief valves.
