Marine Propellers and Propulsion 3rd Edition
   Since the second edition was published in 2007 a number of important changes have and are taking place which relate to ship propulsion. Among these are the developments arising from the IMO's initiatives on the Energy Efficiency Design Index and the bringing to fruition of their earlier work on hull coatings stemming from their resolution on the subject in 2001. In addition to these legislative initiatives is a greater understanding of the physics associated with cavitation development and collapse and its subsequent erosive effects on propeller materials. Moreover, some new types of propulsor are being developed while in other technical fields there is a greater awareness, for example, of the effects of shipping activity on the behavior of marine mammals. It is the intention of this third edition to capture these and other developments that have occurred. In addition a certain amount of rearrangement of the subject matter has also taken place.

pressure vessel handbook
   All engineers involved in equipment design in chemical process industry are confronted with the design of pressure vessels as well as with mounting requirements for them. It is always a frustrating experience for any specialist who is not kept up with current literature in the field of design equations and code requirements. Firstly, this person has to familiarize himself with the up-to-date version of the applicable code, and after that he must search the literature for techniques used in design to meet the applicable codes. Finally, it is necessary for him to properly select dimensional data and material properties from handbooks and other recognized sources for use in the design equations. The author of this book, Mr. Megyesy, has fully recognized this problem. For years he has been collecting data on calculational methods and code requirements methods. First, he has been presented this data in the form of his "Calculation Form Sheets"; later, he has put it all together in the present Pressure Vessel Handbook.

Diesel Engine Transient Operation
   The most attractive feature of the compression ignition (diesel) engine is its excellent fuel efficiency, which can surpass 40% in vehicular applications and even 50% in large, two-stroke units of marine propulsion or electrical generation. Consequently, vehicles equipped with diesel engines achieve much lower specific fuel consumption and reduced carbon dioxide emissions than their similarly rated spark ignition counterparts over the entire operating range, resulting also in considerable money savings over the vehicle's lifetime. Moreover, diesel engines are characterized by low sensitivity in terms of air—fuel ratio variations, absence of throttling, high torque and high tolerability in peak cylinder pressures and temperatures that favors the application of various supercharging schemes.

Diesel engines - troubleshooting and repair
   There are several areas that have changed drastically during the last few years with diesel engines and will greatly affect the near future of diesel engine technologies. The highway trucking industry was the first to require these changes to meet federal EPA emissions guidelines for diesel engines back in the late 1980s. In the mid-1990s these same guidelines were required of the off-highway heavy equipment industry. Now even areas not affected in the past such as the marine, petroleum, and agricultural industries have come under these new requirements. They will change these industries in the same way they have previously changed the trucking and heavy equipment industries. During the last 20 years only certain engine horsepower sizes or industries have come under these federal guidelines. However, the 2007, 2010, and 2012 emissions guidelines will cover and affect all horsepower sizes and industries. Additionally, in most areas the current technologies to meet the 2007 guidelines will not completely meet the 2010 and 2012 requirements without additional technological changes or improvements. These technological changes are inevitable and future technician training needs will be a reality. This is where diesel engine course books like Troubleshooting and Repairing Diesel Engines can help the technician stay current with these changing technologies. To show how rapidly these changes have taken place, information of some past and current examples of those areas affected are mentioned...

Adhesives in Marine Engineering
   During the design, fabrication and modification of ships and offshore structures there are innumerable joining tasks to assemble the structure and to install equipment.The vast majority will be done using welding and perhaps some other mechanical joining process such as bolting or riveting. However, there are situations where these joining processes are not the best option. Typically this is for the assembly of lightweight structures based on thin materials or material combinations such as composite and steel that cannot be welded. However, to be successful, adhesively bonded connections not only need to have sufficient mechanical strength and long-term performance, but they first and foremost have to be economically viable. What do we mean by 'adhesive'? According to Adams et al (1997). 'an adhesive can be defined as a polymeric material which, when applied to surfaces, can join them together and resist separation4. Adams and co-workers describe structural adhesives fcas one used when the load required to cause separation is substantial such that the adhesive provides for the major strength and stiffness of the structure'. The structural members of the joint, which are joined together by the adhesive, are the adherends. Adhesion as such is used widely on marine structures.

Lambs Questions and Answers on the Marine Diesel Engine
   In technology, matter is sometimes referred to as material substance. It can be defined as anything known to exist and occupy space. Any material substance consists of minute particles known as molecules; these are the smallest particles of a substance which can exist and maintain all the properties of the original substance. A molecule is made up of a combination of two or more atoms of the elements. The atom consists of various parts which are held together by forces, recognized as being electrical in character. The forces of attraction come about from unlike electrical charges. The constituent parts of an atom are the central core or nucleus which has a positive charge and one or more electrons. The electron has a negative charge. The nucleus is composed of protons and neutrons (except the atom of hydrogen). Protons have positive electrical charges and the neutrons are electrically neutral. When an atom is electrically neutral it will have the same number of protons and electrons. The number of electrons contained in an atom is shown by the atomic number of the element. An atom becomes an ion when the number of electrons is more or less than the number of protons. The ion will be positive or negative according to the predominant electrical charge. The atom of hydrogen is the simplest; it consists of one proton and one electron. If the electron is removed from the atom of hydrogen the remaining proton becomes a hydrogen ion which will be positive. In some cases two atoms of the same element may differ in the number of neutrons contained in the nucleus. The atomic weights will therefore be different and the atoms are described as being isotopes of the element. The isotopes of an element have identical chemical properties but differing physical properties. The electrons outside the nucleus control the properties of the atom, and the protons and neutrons in the nucleus determine its atomic weight. The electrons are considered to form a series of orbital envelopes or cases around the nucleus, each envelope containing a set pattern of electrons. Other particles exist but need not concern us in this study.

Working With Heat Exchangers - Questions and Answers
   Although the literature on heal exchangers is extensive and growing, в newcomer i«i the Held confronts difficulties at a number of points and dues not know where to turn since no one has enough lime to answer all questions. Sometimes he or she is hesitant to ask "simple" questions. Until now, there was no single book that directly told a person about such items as tie-rods and various types of baffles; what to do if the calculated pressure drop is higher than the allowable value; comparison of various types of multi-pass exchangers, multiple segmental baffles, and tube layouts: effects of laminar and turbulent flows; minimum information required for thermal and mechanical design; flow stratification; when a stress anlaysis report is required and which factors are to be taken into account during a stress analysis;mechanical design and failure analysis; nondestructive testing methods; maintenance and repair; types of corrosion and fouling and steps to counter them; causes of vibration, vibrational damage and steps to prevent it; and so on. This book is intended to help newcomers, those with a few years of experience in design and operation, and senior-level students in design courses find answers to over a thousand such questions. It is not meant for experts in the field, although they might use it to review information. The book is self-explanatory, self-contained, and easy to read. It brings out subtle details that do much to aid one's understanding of the topics.

Fundamentals of Heat Exchanger Design
   Significant advances have taken place in the development of heat exchanger manufacturing technology as well as design theory. Many books have been published on the subject, as summarized in the General References at the end of the book. However, our assessment is that none of the books available seems to provide an in-depth coverage of the intricacies of heal exchanger design and theory so as to fully support both a student and a practicing engineer in the quest for creative mastering of both theory and design. Our book was motivated by this consideration. Coverage includes the theory and design of exchangers for many industries (not restricted to, say. the process industry) for a broader, in-depth foundation.
