|Publisher||Thomas Reed Publications|
|D O W N L O A D|
First of all, we would like to note that the main of the initially declared objectives of this volume was to prepare the marine engineering students and, actually, learners of any relevant discipline for the COC, i.e. Certificates of Competency. The material that has been included in this book by the author is covering the work that is necessary to pass the examination.
Note, however, that this book is not really intended to serve as a nicely detailed reference book - it should rather be considered a specific examination guidance. Most of the sketches included in the book are mainly intended to serve as the applications to the exam requirements. Obviously, the best way to learn the subject is to read very thoroughly and carefully through each of the chapters of this book, paying particular attention to the sketchwork and drawings, where applicable. Plus, there are several questions located at the end of each chapter helping to control the progress and evaluate your knowledge.
The book has been conveniently arranged in nine major sections that address the construction materials and welding issues, fuel oil technologies, marine boilers, ancillaries, corrosion matters, boiler water treatment and associated tests, steering gear, shafting arrangements, refrigerating installations, both active and passive measures of fire protection, pumps and various pumping systems together with piping, safety matters and procedures etc.
