19 Jul Introduction to Turbocharger Engineering 3 day course – Tuesday 19th to Thursday 21st February 2019

This three-day course has been developed in response to feedback from industry requesting a non-examined course covering the basics of turbocharger engineering.

This short course is designed to provide a technical education in the field of turbochargers and turbocharging for automotive professionals including OEMs, suppliers and other associated organisations. It will start from the fundamental requirements of turbocharger systems and cover a range of applications including automotive, commercial vehicle, rail and marine and will look at recent developments such as multi staging and waste heat recovery.

The course structure will include;

  • Reasons for turbocharging and supercharging
  • Basic mechanical and aerodynamic design features
  • Turbocharger strip down and benchmarking
  • Design aspects and consideration of turbine, compressor and bearing systems
  • Failure modes and their identification
  • Waste gating, variable geometry and multistage turbocharging
  • Turbo installation
  • Recent developments and the influence of future engine technologies

It is particularly aimed at non-turbo specialists, including component suppliers, applications engineers, systems engineers and packaging engineers. The course is intended to give an understanding of how a turbocharger should be installed and used, as well as the basic principles of design and operation.

Each delegate will receive a book of course notes and a Certificate of Continuing Education from the University of Huddersfield. This can be used as evidence of CPD for professional purposes.

The course is scheduled to run from Tuesday 19th to Thursday 21st February 2019 at the University. The cost will be £1,000 plus VAT per delegate, inclusive of course notes, lunches and refreshments.
