Engine Design Considerations - Reciprocating Internal Combustion Engines (4 credit hours)
This course is an introduction and overview of the basic design considerations of reciprocating internal combustion engines.  Included in this course are descriptions of the most common engine configurations and their main components.  The main configurations include in-line, opposed, Vee block, and radial engines.  This course explores some of the design compromises that are necessary in designing internal combustion engines.  Vibration, balancing and cylinder arrangement and sequencing are discussed.  Major engine components are described and discussed.   The differences between opposed cylinder and opposed piston engines and the differences between radial and rotary engines are explained
