"Fundamentals of Automobile Engineering"
You don't need to have a degree in Mechanical Engineering to understand working of Automobiles!
This course is all about learning the working of cars right from basics. The course will take you on a journey in which you will learn about automobiles piece by piece. We will take the most common automobile - A Car and then understand its working by taking different parts of it, analyzing it closely and then comprehending how different parts work together enabling the vehicle to move from one point to another smoothly.
I will not be using unnecessary jargon and terms that only a car mechanic will be knowing! The journey will be for people from variety of backgrounds. So even if you are a person involved in Biology Lab or in making Android apps, you can happily enroll in the course if you have interest in knowing about Cars,
The course will be mostly in form of video lectures, where I will be explaining the different components using diagrams on whiteboard. For very complicated diagrams, I will be including images and pdfs so that your understanding can become concrete. It can take a total of 2-2.5 hours for completing the entire course.
To make this more interesting, I promise to reply to each and every genuine queries of the students, irrespective of the level of toughness of the query WITHIN 24 HOURS! I wish to have every student enrolled in the class, enjoy this journey with me.
At the end of the course, you will have a strong understanding of what happens inside the car and how different components work together in making a car ride comfortable, while moving from one place to another.
Let's start with some simple questions. Don't worry if you get any of them wrong! We will learn about it soon.
Engines are complicated beasts! In this we will simplify it with a help of a simple story. A boy wanders through forest and feels hungry. Check the lecture to know what happens next!
Now we will see how exactly a Gasoline Engine works and how the different functions are analogous to different steps taken by the boy.
There is another commonly used engines - Diesel Engines. In this lecture we will look at the working and differences of Diesel engine and petrol engine.
We will be learning about the frames on which different components are installed.
There are frameless cars too. Let's learn about it in this lecture.
The central portion of the legs on which cars stand - the wheels. In this we will look at the different types of the wheels and how it works.
Tyres are the ones that are in contact with the road. It is an important component which we will be learning in this lecture.
The first step in transmission of power from Engine to wheels. Let's learn about clutches - the need of it.
We will go a bit deep and learn how exactly the clutches work in a car.
An important topic - we will be learning about gears that will be helpful in understanding the other components.
A commonly used component - Gear Box. Let's see how the driver changes gears and how it effects the speed.
One very important component of any car - Differential. In this we will learn it's working.
Go through the video to learn the working in a concrete way.
We need to connect the components studied so far together. We will learn how it is done.

What makes the ride smooth in a car. Let's start learning about it.
The overall layout of hydraulic brakes and it's working.
Let's learn what exactly forces the wheels to stop.
How is the driver able to turn the car left or right?
The description of various control pedals.
I am a Mechanical Engineer and a Top Writer at Quora, who loves sharing knowledge and experience with people around the world. I have been awarded by Google for Entrepreneurs for building a stair climbing, completely mechanical wheel chair. I enjoy learning new things, building stuffs, and sharing knowledge.
I am taking this course as I have a passion for sharing knowledge and I wish that everyone should know about Mechanical Engineering. Now since Cars are one of the most fascinating technology in this field, I have made this course for students. After being quite successful on Quora and have been followed by 1400+ people, I thought of sharing knowledge in form of videos and hence Udemy! I run a blog named Crazy Curiosity on Quora which is followed by hundreds of people.
I have a belief that learning should always be mixed with practical knowledge and not just be theoretical in nature. This is why I try bringing practical daily life experiences to make the learning more enjoyable and sticky!
