MARINE ENGINEERS REVIEW
'This latest edition is completely rewritten and restructured, while retaining the directness of approach and attention to detail characterising its predecessors'
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 new edition has been completely re-written and re-structured, while retaining the directness of approach and attention to essential detail that characterised its predecessors. There are new sections covering principles and theory, and engine selection, and important developments such as the use of high speed diesel engines (for instance in fast ferry craft) are treated in full. In addition, numerous illustrations of all the listed types of engines appear in their relevant chapters.
