953 Pages with Comprehensive Index. A tight bright used book showing minor wear to covers. No marks or stamps. Interiior text pages are faultless. Most of the changes in this 1992 Edition have been of an evolutionary nature; as examples, diesels have continued to supplant steam turbines for most ship propulsion applications in the commercial arena, and gas turbines have become more firmly established as propulsion engines, particularly for warships of the frigate class. Because of the evolutionary nature of the technology changes, the coverage of some subjects has been reduced in comparison with that in the previous edition (e.g., Boilers and Combustion), but the coverage of other subjects has been expanded substantially. Noise Control, for example, has been given a more thorough treatment; Chapter 13 is dedicated to that subject. In addition, the introductory chapter has been broadened to include several topics, such as Design for Production, that have been given an increased emphasis since publication of the previous edition. The purpose of this second revision remains the same as that for earlier editions, that is, to provide a basic understanding of marine engineering principles to persons who are nominally second-year engineering students. During the process of allocating the various topics to the most appropriate chapters for coverage, the introductory chapter became the repository for subjects which, for a variety of reasons, could not suitably be published as stand-alone chapters. Notwithstanding the diverse subjects covered, however, the chapter has been shaped into a remarkably coherent theme. The selection of the units of measure to be used in the text was the result of much deliberation. The advocates of both English and SI units held strong positions; therefore, the chapter authors were permitted to select the units used in each respective chapter, with SI units recommended where there was no strong preference. The use of dual units was considered; however, to avoid numerous duplications throughout the text and to improve the clarity of the material presented, the use of only one type of units, along with a conversion table at the end of the text, was considered preferable. Contents in 22 Chapters: Basic Concepts, Thermodynamics and Heat Engineering, Diesel Engines, Gas Turbines, Boilers and Combustion, Steam Turbines, Nuclear Marine Propulsion, Electric Propulsion Drives, Reduction Gears, Propellers Shafting and Shafting System Vibration Analyses, Bearings and Lubrication, Fuelsand Fuel Treatment, Noise Control, Pumps Compressors Blowers and Ejectors, Main and Auxiliary Condensers, Heat Exchangers, Desalination Plants, Hull Machinery, Electrical Systems, Piping Systems, Heating Ventilation Air Conditioning and Refrigeration, and Construction Materials.

Acerca de


This edition of Marine Engineering presents more than twenty years of evolutionary changes in the maritime industry. The book provides a complete review of marine engineering, encompassing both naval and merchant practices and incorporating the broad range of technological developments that evolved during the last decades. Also included is material presenting the principles associated with pollution control, design for production, integrated logistic support and noise control, as well as expanded coverage of propulsion shafting and piping. Long-time SNAME member Roy L. Harrington, now retired from Newport News Shipbuilding, edited this landmark volume.
