This course caters, mainly, to Engineers, Technicians and Facilities Managers who are not intimately familiar with Mechanical Engineering Principles and Practices. Through this course, participants are expected to learn basic principles of mechanical engineering in a simple, easy to understand, format. This course will enable participants to accomplish straightforward and common calculations associated with mechanical engineering concepts such as statics, kinetics, kinematics, materials, mechanics of materials, fluid mechanics, hydraulic machines, thermodynamics, refrigeration cycle, financial evaluation and decision making associated with typical engineering projects. Most concepts are presented in basic and easy-to-understand terms. Mechanical engineering concepts are illustrated by practical numerical problems and case studies. Past experience has shown that even professionals without engineering education can take away a commensurate amount of engineering knowledge from “cross-discipline” skill building courses, such as this one.
- Fundamentals for mechanical engineering
- Basic mechanical engineering concepts, associated formulas and units
- Statics: The statics topic introduces the concepts, laws and problem analysis techniques associated with beams and truss systems in equilibrium, under point and distributed loads
- Dynamics – Kinematics: The kinematics topic provides an introduction to concepts, laws and analytical techniques pertinent to motion in the absence of unbalanced forces
- Dynamics – Kinetics: The kinetics topic introduces the attendees to concepts, laws and problem analysis techniques associated with bodies or objects in motion, when motion is influenced by unbalanced forces
- Materials and Mechanics of Materials
- Fluid Mechanics & Hydraulic Machines
- Thermodynamics & Refrigeration Cycle
- Better understanding of the principles and concepts associated with mechanical energy, work, torque, power – and the inter-conversion between these entities in the engineering realm
- Better familiarity with methods and strategies utilized by mechanical engineers for analyzing forces and moments in beams and truss systems - in static equilibrium
