Pounder's Marine Diesel Engines, Sixth Edition focuses on developments in diesel engines.
The book first discusses theory and general principles. Theoretical heat cycle, practical cycles, thermal and mechanical efficiency, working cycles, fuel consumption, vibration, and horsepower are considered. The text takes a look at engine selection and performance, including direct and indirect drive, maximum rating, exhaust temperatures, derating, mean effective pressures, fuel coefficient, propeller performance, and power build-up. The book also examines pressure charging. Matching of turboblowers, blower surge, turbocharger types, constant pressure method, impulse turbocharging method, and scavenging are discussed. The text describes fuel injection, Sulzer, MAN, and Burmeister and Wain engines.
The selection also considers Mitsubishi, GMT, and Doxford engines. The text then focuses on fuels and fuel chemistry; operation, monitoring, and maintenance; significant operating problems; and engine installation. Engine seatings and alignment, reaction measurements, crankcase explosions, main engine crankshaft defects, bearings, fatigue, and overhauling and maintenance are discussed.
The book is a good source of information for readers wanting to study diesel engines.
