The Marine Steam Engine

   The full name of this classical and rare publication by Richard Sennett and Henry J. Oram is The Marine Steam Engine - A Treatise for Engineering Students, Young Engineers, and Officers of the Royal Navy and Merchantile Marine. Just imagine, it was published in London in 1898! However, most of the material presented inside, is still actual and very well explained. In 2007, the book was digitized by the Internet Archive sponsored by Microsoft Corporation.

Pump Characteristics and Applications

   In fact, every a pump is a machine that is used for moving liquid through a piping system and raising its pressure. Pumps can be also defined as machines using several energy transformations in order to increase the pressure of the fluid. The electricity is commonly used for powering an electric motor; however, there are some alternative forms of energy used to power the driver like fuel oil powering a diesel engine, high-pressure steam driving a steam turbine, high-pressure hydraulic fluid to power a hydraulic motor, and compressed air to drive an air motor. The present publication jas been dedicated to the pumps and covers following major aspects of pumping technology - introduction; hydraulics, selection, and curves; special hydraulic considerations; types and applications of centrifugal pumps; sealing systems; sealless pumps; life-cycle costs and energy conservation; special pump-related topics; installation, maintenance and operation; major pump suppliers in the US; conversion formulae.

Pipe Flow - A Practical and Comprehensive Guide

   This book provides practical and comprehensive information on the subject of pressure drop and other phenomena in fluid flow in pipes. The importance of piping systems in distribution systems, in industrial operations-and in modern power plants justifies a book devoted exclusively to this subject. The emphasis is on flow in piping components and piping systems where greatest benefit will derive from accurate prediction of pressure loss. A great deal of experimental and theoretical research on fluid flow in pipes and their components has been reported over the years. However, the basic methodology in fluid flow textbooks is usually fragmented, scattered throughout several chapters and paragraphs; and useful, practical information is difficult to sort out. Moreover, textbooks present very little loss coefficient data, and those that are given are desperately out of date. Elsewhere, experimental data and published formulas for loss coefficients have provided results that are in considerable disagreement. Into the bargain, researchers have not accounted for all possible flow configurations and their results are not always presented in a readily useful form. This book addresses and fixes these deficiencies.

Wilhelmsen Fuel and Lube Oil Test Methods

   This document released by Wilhelmsen describes the fuel oil and lube oil test methods. The Total Base Number is determined by measuring the pressure build-up in the cell when a pre-determined quantity of oil sample is added to a special reagent. Then, we determine the amount of sample needed by the cell measurement processor; this amount is based on the expected TBN. When using this instrument for the very first time it is necessary to calibrate it for each of the oil grades to be measured. The cell is able to hold calibration data for up to seven different oil grades. The calibration process requires a sample of new oil for each of the grades to be measured. We recommend you use the oil grade name as the "Name" during the cell setup process. The cell should be re-calibrated approximately every six months. The calibration can be checked by using new oil in the TBN test procedure, in place of used oil. The'test'TBN should be close to the new oil TBN.

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.
