Course Description

We will disassemble the gasoline engine for cars, which is mounted on the test cab and is actually operable, while explaining the composition and operation of parts. Each time the disassembled parts are inspected and measured, the state of the engine is checked. After assembly, make adjustments, diagnoses, and experiments to ensure normal operation. In the second half, a full load test of the diesel engine will be performed.
In this class, you will acquire knowledge, skills and attitudes about DP2 to DP5.

Course Objectives

Students aim to understand, acquire and practice the following:
(1) Basic structure, operating principle, and names of each part of the reciprocating engine.
(2) Knowledge on disassembly / assembly / adjustment and experimental methods, engine power and fuel efficiency

Grading Policy

The final examination (50%) and the assignment / experiment report (50%) will be used, and the class attitude will be evaluated by the deduction method. The class attitude is to protect the "knowledge of practical training and experimental work" distributed on the first day of class.
During the class, you will give exercises one by one and explain the answers. In addition, we will give feedback on the whole in the last class.
The assignment / experiment report is written on A4 paper vertically using a ballpoint pen, and the contents and assignments are summarized for each training / experiment once for all training / experiments. Please submit by the test date.

Requirements(Assignments)

As a preparatory lesson, check the meanings of proper nouns and relationships shown in the lesson contents, and collectively (about 1.5 hours) start the lesson. In particular, it is desirable to understand part names and functions to some extent. After the class, please review the contents of the lesson for about 1.5 hours to deepen your understanding.
Then, make a report of the contents of practical training and experiment for every class.

Note

All training and experiments require attendance. Strictly check for late / absent / early leaving.
Please prepare report papers and notebooks by yourself. Please wear the uniforms, hats, and safety shoes purchased in advance for the training.
It is desirable that the engine structure theory, which is a lecture related to the engine engineering experiment, has been completed.
