We recommend all our visitors to have a close look at this fourth edition of one of the most popular books on marine steam engines and turbines. The publication has proven useful and practical. It has been well met by the marine engineers worldwide and has been serving as an excellent textbook for decades. When preparing this edition of the volume, the author needed to include a lot of new materials and significantly update the content of the previous releases.
However, every effort was made by hum to retain the relatively compact size of the book. The publication covers absolutely all important aspects of construction and operation of the shipboard steam engines and steam turbines. The information is presented in a very readable format making this book a very good option for the people with little experience.
The author has managed to avoid going too deep into the theoretical fundamentals of the processes to make the book easier to follow. The content of the volume opens with the introductory chapter devoted to the generation and main properties of steam including superheated and wet steam, from which the readers are invited to proceed to reciprocating engines, steam turbines etc. - as we said, the book covers everything you may need to know
