Engine Performance Training Course

Intermediate Level: Fundamentals of Internal Combustion Engine Performance A3.1

This engine performance training course launched in December 2019  in order to bring a better understanding of the forces at play in torque generation, performance optimisation, and the constraints involved in 4 stroke internal combustion engines.

Designed for individuals and groups seeking to better understand how a 4 stroke engine produces torque, how to increase it’s performance and to mitigate the constraints to higher output.

The course duration is half a day so makes it ideal to combine with one of our other courses!

A completion certificate is provided.


Day 1 – The classroom

An introduction to the training course and a run through of the subjects covered.

A run-through of the basic functions of the 4 stroke IC engine

Understanding the principle of energy transformation

A look at the different types of energy in play , and how to optimise them

Understanding the ways to increase engine output

An explanation of the constraints to improving engine output


Learning Outcomes
