About the Class

Course Description:

This course caters, mainly, to Engineers, Technicians, and Facilities Managers who are not intimately familiar with Mechanical Engineering Principles and Practices. Through this course, attendees are expected to learn the basic principles of mechanical engineering in a simple, easy-to-understand, format. This course will enable attendees 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 proportional amount of engineering knowledge from “cross-discipline” skill-building seminars, such as this one.

What will you learn in this live class?

  • Understand the principles and concepts associated with mechanical energy, work, torque, power – and the inter-conversion between these entities in the engineering realm.
  • Get familiarized with methods and strategies utilized by mechanical engineers for analyzing forces and moments in beams and truss systems - in static equilibrium.
  • Understand how to perform stress, strain, toughness, and ductility analyses on engineering materials.
  • Get familiarized with – or get refreshed on – the basics of dynamics; kinematics and kinetics, in linear and angular motion domains.
  • Learn about the strengths, thermal, and alloying characteristics of materials.
  • Comprehend and learn to apply hydrostatics and hydrodynamics principles, laws, and equations for analyses of fluid systems.
  • Gain an introduction to – or get refreshed on – the four stages/phases of a refrigeration cycle illustrated and supported by the DuPont R-134a refrigerant pressure-enthalpy case study.
  • Get introduced to some of the primary instruments utilized by mechanical engineers.

Topics:

  • Mechanical engineering system of units - Imperial (US) and Metric (SI) Systems.
  • Basic mechanical engineering concepts, associated formulas, and units.
  • 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: This topic covers concepts such as stress, strain, strengths of materials, alloy phase diagrams, and phase equilibrium liquid-solid diagrams.
  • Fluid Mechanics Hydraulic Machines: This topic includes fluid statics, hydrodynamics, and hydraulic machines.
  • Thermodynamics: In this segment, the attendee is introduced to some fundamental, yet practical, thermodynamic concepts, principles, laws, and problem-solving techniques. Refrigeration Cycle: Basic refrigeration cycle model is covered, coupled with a brief explanation of thermodynamic processes associated with each segment of the refrigeration cycle.
  • Engineering Economics Financial Analysis of Engineering Projects: This topic is intended to provide engineer and non-engineer attendees with a brief introduction to basic, yet practical, methods for performing simple, financial evaluations of capital projects.

Who should take this live class?

  • Licensed Professional Engineers, who need to meet the annual or biennial license renewal PDH (Professional Development Hour) or CEU (Continuing Education Units) requirements.
  • Engineers and Architects who do not possess current working knowledge of mechanical engineering and are interested in broadening their engineering knowledge base through basic cross-training.
  • Facility Managers, Maintenance Engineers, Maintenance Managers, Engineering Managers, Program/Project Managers, and other professionals in leadership who sense a lack of current and adequate mechanical engineering knowledge to hold meaningful technical discussions and make informed decisions when interacting with their mechanical engineering direct reports or colleagues.
  • Non-engineers, including technical writers responsible for developing operations and maintenance manuals for mechanical, civil, and HVAC systems

Requirements

You should have a science and math background.
