Developed to complement Reeds Vol 8 (General Engineering for Marine Engineers), this indispensable textbook comprehensively covers the motor engineering syllabus for marine engineering officer cadets. Starting with the theoretical and practical thermodynamic operating cycles, the book is structured to give a description of the engines and components used to extract energy from fossil fuels and achieve high levels of efficiency.
Accessibly written and clearly illustrated, this book is the only guide available for marine engineering students focusing on the knowledge needed for passing the motor engineering certificate of Competency (CoC) examinations.
This new edition reflects all developments within the discipline and includes updates and additions on, amongst other things:
· Engine emissions and control engineering
· Fuel injection
· Starting and reversing
· Ancillary supply systems
· Safety and the environment
Plus updates to many of the technical engineering drawings.
