The key to a vehicle's overall operation is the superior, quality design of its major moving subsystems. Automotive gasoline and diesel fuel delivery systems in particular must be virtually malfunction free for all components for the entire vehicle prescribed service life. Fuel systems must be robust and precise enough to store and deliver the appropriate amount of fuel to power the engine. These stringent requirements necessitate a basic understanding of the subsystem working principles, functionalities and interrelated components.
This course provides a basic yet thorough examination of technical issues involved in automotive gasoline and diesel fuel delivery. Participants will acquire a fundamental understanding of the current technology and requirement guidelines and apply some of the principles through an in-class project and exercises. Examples of frequently encountered technical issues of fuel delivery systems shall also be discussed. The course is designed to encourage discussion, insights, and possible solutions into the engineering problems encountered in the gasoline and diesel fuel delivery systems and components.
By attending this seminar, you will be able to:
You should attend if you are an engineer or engineering manager involved in design, research, testing or implementation of automotive fuel delivery systems. Engine designers, suppliers of fuels and fuel delivery system components, and polymer engineers may benefit as well.
An engineering degree in any discipline would be beneficial.
You must complete all course contact hours and successfully pass the learning assessment to obtain CEUs.
