This publication is truly classic. It is widely recognized as one of the most comprehensive reference books to be used by marine engineers plus all people who seek a good working knowledge of marine diesel engines and associated equipment. This is the eight edition, which has been fully rewritten. The author of the title has added several completely new chapters dedicated to the slow-speed and super-long-stroke diesel engines, and also the newly introduced medium-speed diesel engines that can work burning the fuel oils of considerably lower quality than the conventional engines. In addition to that, the publication contains a thorough and interesting technical discussion on the new purifier systems for the treatment of the fuel oil, and also the issues concerning the testing of fuels and lube oils on board the vessels. The text part of the book has been written in a very understandable language, making this book an excellent choice even for the non-professionals and undergraduate students of marine engineering and similar technical disciplines; the text has been illustrated with more than a thousand images, sketches and drawings, specifically designed and drawn for this release of the publication.
