Kees Kuiken, who is the recognized expert and author of this two volume set of books, has aimed it to the people who are directly involved in the engineering, operation and due maintenance of the marine diesel engines as well to all students of marine engineering and ship construction, and even to the enthusiasts of marine engineering. Note that it will also serve as a very useful tool for the manufacturers of the diesel engines and associated machinery.
We all know that the diesel engines play a vital role in society's life and they are deservedly considered indispensable for the shipping industry. The approach applied by the author implied inclusion of all relevant technical information relating to the construction of the diesel engines, materials used, classification of the engines in categories, their maintenance and repair, and everyday use. The author has paid so much attention to the graphic material supplementing the text. This was done to help readers to gain the insight.
We can say that the book covers literally everything, e.g. efficiency and energy losses occurring in the diesel engines, engine types, fuel oils and injection systems, cooling and lubrication of the diesel engines, driving gears, starting arrangements and air supply, engine speed control, noise and vibration issues, and so many other aspects.
