This is a completely re-written, updated and revised release of the textbook which, together with a huge number of newly added illustrations and images, forms an excellent guide to the construction and operating principles of the machinery installed on board marine vessels, i.e. diesel engines and boilers. This edition of the textbook contains more chapter in comparison to the previous edition. Moreover, there is now a separate introductory section developed to address the syllabus that is usually used during the naval training. Some little portion of the publication has been given to the types of marine boilers and engines that are now considered obsolete. In addition, the auxiliary section of the book covers such the important matters of marine engineering as steering gear, towing arrangement and other deck equipment, electrical machinery and associated equipment, air compressors, various hydraulic machinery, refrigerators, etc. Particular attention has been paid to such important aspects of naval architecture and ship construction as water-tightness of the hull, ship stability, pumping arrangement, fire-fighting matters etc. Finally, the last section of the book addresses the steam turbines and ICE, i.e. internal combustion engines. The author did his best to explain the complex technical matters in a very simple and understandable manner.
