Course detail

Vehicle Engines

FSI-QVOAcad. year: 2018/2019

The course deals with the present day conditions and development prospects of vehicle combustion engines. Descriptions of design solutions and functions of individual assembly groups and engine elements are followed by the main functional requirements, achievements and development trends for passenger cars, truck engines, tractor and motorcycle engines.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will have an overall idea of the design of vehicle combustion engines and their parts.

Prerequisites

Design of machine part, kinematics and dynamics of machine mechanism, evaluation of these elements regarding mechanics, elasticity, and strength. Thermo cycles of combustion engines and thermal load. Combustion engines maps.

Co-requisites
