Just imagine, the volume presented to your attention here, is the fifteenth edition of the title so popular among the marine engineers of the beginning of the last century. By the time of its release, the publication had already been treated as maybe the best reference books on marine engineering of all those available at that time.
Apart from the general marine engineering content, the volume also includes valuable guidance for the marine surveyors involved in surveying the shipboard machinery and equipment. The learners start with the prime movers and measurements relating to the engine power, efficiency of the machinery installed on board ships, followed by the ship propulsion and resistance experienced by the ship’s hull. After that, all of the engine components are dealt with in detail, including the cylinders, pistons and rods, shafting and connecting rods, main bearings, etc.
It would be good to focus on the shipboard pumping arrangements, including all types of pumps and services, for example air pumps, bilge pump, feed water pumps and so many others. The ship valves are also explained in a very clear way. Taking into account the really impressive coverage of the topics, it would be impractical to list all of them here, so we just recommend you to have this volume – even though it obviously does not reflect the modern technological trends, the theoretical essentials are perfectly covered.
