Pounder's Marine Diesel Engines and Gas Turbines

9780750658461: Pounder's Marine Diesel Engines and Gas Turbines

Since its first appearance in 1950, Pounder's Marine Diesel Engines has served seagoing engineers, students of the Certificates of Competency examinations and the marine engineering industry throughout the world. Each new edition has noted the changes in engine design and the influence of new technology and economic needs on the marine diesel engine. This eighth edition retains the directness of approach and attention to essential detail that characterized its predecessors. There are new chapters on monitoring control systems and governor systems, gas turbines and safety aspects of engine operation. It covers the important developments such as the latest diesel-electric LNG carriers that will soon be in operation. After experience as a seagoing engineer with the British India Steam Navigation Company, Doug Woodyard held editorial positions with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and the Institute of Marine Engineers. He subsequently edited "The Motor Ship" journal for eight years before becoming a freelance editor specializing in shipping, shipbuilding and marine engineering. He is currently technical editor of "Seatrade", a contributing editor to "Speed at Sea", "Shipping World and Shipbuilder" and a technical press consultant to Rolls-Royce Commercial Marine. It is designed to reflect the recent changes to SQA/Marine and Coastguard Agency Certificate of Competency exams. Careful organisation of the new edition enables readers to access the information they require. Brand new chapters focus on monitoring control systems and governor systems, gas turbines and safety aspects of engine operation. It includes high quality, clearly labelled illustrations and figures.
