Pounder's marine diesel engines and gas turbines, Edition: by Woodyard, Douglas F.; Pounder, Cuthbert Coulson

By Woodyard, Douglas F.; Pounder, Cuthbert Coulson

Considering its first visual appeal in 1950, Pounder's Marine Diesel Engines has served seagoing engineers, scholars of the certificate of Competency examinations and the marine engineering through the global. every one new version has famous the alterations in engine layout and the effect of recent know-how and financial wishes at the marine diesel engine.

This 8th variation keeps the directness of process and a focus to crucial element that characterised its predecessors. There are new chapters on tracking keep an eye on platforms and governor platforms, gasoline generators and security elements of engine operation. vital advancements equivalent to the newest diesel-electric LNG companies that might quickly be in operation.

After adventure as a seagoing engineer with the British India Steam Navigation corporation, Doug Woodyard held editorial positions with the establishment of Mechanical Engineers and the Institute of Marine Engineers. He therefore edited The Motor send magazine for 8 years prior to turning into a contract editor focusing on transport, shipbuilding and marine engineering. he's at the moment technical editor of Seatrade, a contributing editor to hurry at Sea, transport global and Shipbuilder and a technical press advisor to Rolls-Royce advertisement Marine.

* Designed to mirror the new adjustments to SQA/Marine and Coastguard business enterprise certificates of Competency checks. cautious agency of the recent variation permits readers to entry the knowledge they require
* fresh chapters specialise in tracking regulate platforms and governor structures, gasoline generators and safeguard features of engine operation
* prime quality, basically labelled illustrations and figures

Example text

It is sinusoidal. 12) f= 1 2p I where q is the stiffness in newton metres per radian and I is the moment of inertia of the attached mass in kg metres2. 13) 16 POUNDER’S MARINE DIESEL ENGINES AND GAS TURBINES where s is the stiffness in newtons per metre of deflection and m is the mass attached in kg. The essence of control is to adjust these two parameters, q and I (or s and m), to achieve a frequency which does not coincide with any of the forcing frequencies. Potentially the most damaging form of vibration is the torsional mode, affecting the crankshaft and propeller shafting (or generator shafting).

The firing order will determine the vectorial sum of the forces and moments from the individual cylinders. A distinction should be made between external forces and moments, and internal forces and moments. The external forces and moments will act as resultants on the engine and thereby also on the ship through the foundation and top bracing of the engine. 11(b) Free couples of mass forces and the torque variation about the centre lines of the engine and crankshaft (New Sulzer Diesel): M1V is the 1st order couple having a vertical component.

6) THEORY AND GENERAL PRINCIPLES 13 Note that in an opposed-piston engine ‘l ’ totals the sum of the strokes of the two pistons in each cylinder. To apply the formulae to doubleacting engines is somewhat more complex since, for instance, allowance must be made for the piston rod diameter. Where double-acting engines are used it would be advisable to seek the builder’s advice about the constants to be used. 6) is based on the movement of the point of application of the force on the piston in a straight line.
