This is an excellent booklet developed by the specialists of the world respected MAN Diesel & Turbo. It will serve as a perfect supplementary training tool for the people dealing with the propulsion arrangements on ships. Nowadays marine diesel engines are considered primary means of ship propulsion. Their power requirement and revolution rate vary according to the form of the ship's hull and design of the shipboard propeller.
That is why in order to get the optimal technical solution one has to possess a good knowledge of the ships and diesel engine parameters influencing the propulsion systems. The authors of the present booklet have made an attempt to provide readers, especially newcomers, with the explanation of the basic terms relating to the dimensions and sizes of the ships, and also give clarification of the various parameters concerning the propeller conditions and resistance of the ship's hull etc.
Note that the content of the volume does not cover propulsion calculations since they are too complex. The material is arranged in three separate chapters and in fact each of them may be treated as a separate paper. These three chapters cover the main definitions and ship hull resistance, propeller propulsion, and engine layout together with the load diagrams.
