The main purpose of the present publication is to let students better prepare for their Certificates of Competency with the focus made on the steam engineering. The text of the book is covering the essentials that are necessary for the above exams. We would treat this volume as a specific examination guidebook. All sketches and illustrations included in the book can be used as the applications to the particular exam requirements.
It is recommended that the students first study the content of each chapter carefully and then practice the sketches and images; after that they should proceed to the examples provided at the end of each chapter. There are six main chapters in this book. The first two chapters are dealing with the boilers and turbine theory. They are followed by the chapters devoted to the gearing, turbine practice and fundamentals of the control arrangements. Finally, the last chapter of the volume concentrates on the feed systems and shipboard auxiliaries.
This is where the main part of the book ends and the readers proceed to the specimen questions selected and embedded to make the learning process more effective and interesting. This is an excellent volume not only for the students but also for the crew members of the vessels with subject equipment installed.
