This course is and
abridged version of the 2-Day Mechanical Engineering Principles & Practice for
Non-Mechanical Engineers Course. 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
basic principles of mechanical engineering in a simple, easy to understand,
format. This course will enable attendees to accomplish straightforward and
common calculations associated 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 seminars, such
as this one.
1. Understand the principles and concepts associated with mechanical energy, work, torque, power – and the inter-conversion between these entities in the engineering realm.
2. Get familiarized with methods and strategies utilized by mechanical engineers for analysing forces and moments in beams and truss systems - in static equilibrium.
3. Understand how to perform stress, strain, toughness and ductility analyses on engineering materials.
4. Get familiarized with – or get refreshed on – basics of dynamics; kinematics and kinetics, in linear and angular motion domains.
5. Learn about strengths, thermal and alloying characteristics of materials.
6. Comprehend and learn to apply hydrostatics and hydrodynamics principles, laws and equations for analyses of fluid systems.
7. Gain an introduction to – or get refreshed on – the four stages/phases of refrigeration cycle, illustrated and supported by DuPont R-134a refrigerant pressureenthalpy case study.
8. Get introduced to some of the basic instruments utilized by mechanical engineers.
