Preface to Marine Engineering PDF Book

Progress has been made in many areas of marine engineering since the first edition of this book was published.

A greater emphasis is now being placed on the cost-effective operation of ships. This has meant more fuel-efficient engines, less time in port and the need for greater equipment reliability, fewer engineers and more use of automatically operated machinery.

The marine engineer is still, however, required to understand the working principles, construction and operation of all the machinery items in a ship.

The need for correct and safe operating procedures is as great as ever. There is considerably more legislation which must be understood and complied with, for example in relation to the discharging of oil, sewage and even black smoke from the funnel.

Engineers must now be more environmentally aware of the results of their activities and new material is included in this revised edition dealing with exhaust emissions, environmentally friendly refrigerants and fire extinguishants.

The aim of this book is to simply explain the operation of all the ship’s machinery to an Engineer Cadet or Junior Engineer who is embarking on a career at sea.

The emphasis is always upon correct, safe operating procedures and practices at all times. The content has been maintained at a level to cover the syllabuses of the Class 4 and Class 3 Engineer’s Certificates of Competency and the first two years of the Engineer Cadet Training Scheme.

Additional material is included to cover the Engineering knowledge syllabus of the Master’s Certificate. Anyone with an interest in ships’ machinery or a professional involvement in the shipping business should find this book informative and useful.
