Publisher Summary. This book presents an introduction to marine engineering and begins by taking an overall look at the ship. The various duties of a marine engineer all relate to the operation of the ship in a safe, reliable, efficient, and economic manner. part 6 to marine engineering practice: application of automatic machinery and alarm equipment in ships: inst. mar. eng. part 7 to marine engineering practice: hydraulic power transmission in marine machinery: inst. mar. eng. part 8 to marine engineering practice: marine steam turbines: inst. mar. eng. part 9 to marine engineering practice.

Marine Engineering Marine engineering is a field that deals with the engineering aspect of the maritime industry. Like any conventional engineering course, marine engineering is a four year course which prepares an individual to become an engineer on ships. Marine engineering is all about machinery on ships, boats, yachts, or any sea going vessel. Mariners of yore would certainly be more familiar with machinery like marine steam engine valve gear, though the rest of us would surely be interested to know more about it. Actually reciprocating steam engines have now literally been made obsolete and current ships either operate on marine diesel engines or steam turbines. This is a very rudimentary explanation of a small marine steam plant and is intended for the newcomer - to help dispel the mysticism that surrounds a steam engine and boiler. A small marine steam plant, in its simplest form, is easier to understand and repair than any internal combustion engine. steam from the waste heat boiler is used for process or space heating, the term "cogeneration" is the more correct terminology (simultaneous production of electric and heat energy). Steam turbine plants generally have a history of achieving up to 95% availability and can operate for more than a year between shutdowns for maintenance and.

To the many who knew the late Richard Bennett, my old friend and predecessor in office, and appreciated his work and worth, and regretted the all too early closing of his brilliant career, it will be a source of gratification that the revision of this book has been undertaken by so capable a marine engineer as Inspector of Machinery H. J. Oram, R.N. Introduction to Marine Engineering – D.A. Taylor One of the finest and most read books on marine engineering, Introduction to marine engineering by D.A. Taylor provides information on every aspect of the ship’s machinery systems, from propulsion and steering to deck machinery and electrical equipment.
