Note that the Vol. 2 and Vol. 3 are also available, so make sure you have your own full set of publications.
The present publication belongs to the world popular and famous Reeds series. The content of the volume is covering the essential concepts of the theoretical maritime physics science underpinning the basic principles of the electromagnetic wave, and same is discussed in the numerous relevant training courses, including the merchant and naval marine engineering.
That is why it is critically important for the maritime users to possess a good knowledge of the concepts on which the contemporary marine communication devices and sensors work. It shall be noted that the subject knowledge forms an integral part of the merchant navy requirements as per the relevant sections of the STCW convention.
This compact volume is intended to provide some introductory information presented in a very clear and easy-to-understand manner making is the best choice for the trainees with the English being non-native language. The authors have presented a truly comprehensive yet quite concise study of the fundamental principles, providing readers with the necessary background before they proceed to studying the subject further, since it will greatly contribute in their technical knowledge and preparation.
This publication would be recommended to anyone whose working activities imply dealing with the pumping arrangements. The publication covers different types of pumps used in the industry and provides comprehensive and understandable explanations of their working principles and construction. This is a very valuable textbook and reference source giving an excellent general overview of pumping machinery and hydraulics.
The text has been supplemented by numerous informative diagrams, data tables and images included to be of help when explaining the theoretical basics of the pumps and their practical applications. And note that this book is the best choice for those who are willing to understand much more than just a simple pump curve - they fill find all the information they require in one single volume covering the components of the pumps and all technical aspects involved. The material presented in the book is remarkably detailed and technically correct making the book deservedly popular in the industry.
All information provided on the pumps is up-to-date and will benefit any worker involved in mechanical maintenance of the subject machinery. The reader will learn how to properly install and maintain all types of pumps, get the fundamental knowledge of the operating principles and application of the pumps in robotics and other new fields, find some useful installation and troubleshooting tips and all other information.
Here is the one more piece of pure classics - a publication released more than a century ago to provide the marine engineers of that time with the essential information related to the ships featuring electrical propulsion. Despite rapidly developing and changing technology, the basic points raised by the author of the volume, remain valid.
After a short introduction, there is a section of the sizes of the ships and how the ships are powered. Then, the author provides some analysis of the energy required to propel the vessel at the constant speed, in ton-miles. This is followed by the chapters of interest not only for the marine engineers but also for the naval architects, because here such the important aspects as the momentum of ships and frictional resistance of the hull, speed and propeller efficiency, steam turbines together with the mechanical and electrical speed-reduction gear, are dealt with.
The use of the superheated steam has also been addressed. Then, we are coming to the internal combustion engines as the last step before the electrical propulsion. Having covered the basic intro, the author proceeds to the description of the electrical propulsion systems, explaining their technical features.
The publication contains minimum basic technical information that would be of great help in case of necessity - the user will be able to do some of the maintenance of their diesel engines and perform a troubleshooting. Moreover, the information provided in the pages of the booklet will even enable them to do some of the emergency repairs while being afloat. It contains valuable tips prepared by Nigel Calder, who is a professional diesel mechanic with the experience of more than thirty years.
The readers will know how to save some money by performing their own diesel engine maintenance, how to recognize the first signs of trouble, how to diagnose and possibly overcome common problems occurring to the diesel endings, and, finally, how to keep their engines ticking. Every boat owner knows that, should any problem with the diesel engine surface while the boat is on the water, there is usually little to no time at all to spend going though very exhaustive manuals.
That is why we designed a short manual that could provide all answers very fast. The publication was drawn from the largest boating library in the world and consists of several color panels of authoritative an quite concise technical information related to the boat diesel engines - we would say that it is an excellent on-the-spot reference tool.
Here is an excellent training resource which would be equally effective when used by both students of marine engineering and practicing marine engineers. The author of the volume collected all information that would be necessary for them to possess, reworked it and then presented in a very reader-friendly manner, making the understanding of the content easy.
The contents starts with the general introductory information about the engineering units and power measurement, followed with the chapters on steam turbines and marine boilers. After that, the readers will proceed to the distillation of the water and its production on board ship, and shipboard pumps together with the associated pumping systems. The refrigeration, air conditioning arrangements and ventilation equipment and systems have been discussed in a separate chapter.
Same approach was applied to the ship steering gear, considering its critical importance for the safe navigation. Having this completed, you may continue to the shipboard machinery and hydraulics, electrical installation, deck machinery and pollution prevention equipment, namely oily water separators and sewage treatment plants. As you can easily see, virtually all aspects of marine engineering have been covered in the pages of this nice publication.
