Since its first appearance in 1950 pounders marine diesel engines has served seagoing engineers students of the certificates of competency examinations and the marine engineering industry throughout the world each new edition has noted the changes in engine design and the influence of new technology and economic needs on the marine diesel engine. Marine gas turbines are available only in specific sizes and ratings unlike a given diesel engine design which can cover a wide power range with different in line and v cylinder configurations a power rating at particular ambient conditions determines the internal engine temperatures and the resulting expected service life of components . Growing opportunities for dual fuel and gas diesel engines in land and marine power industries have stimulated designs from leading medium speed and low speed engine builders such as wrtsil the primary reason for this development is the increasing availability of gaseous fuels the much lower level of noxious exhaust emissions associated . V contents preface vii introduction ix 1 theory and general principles 1 . Since its first look in 1950 pounders marine diesel engines has served seagoing engineers school college students of the certificates of competency examinations and the marine engineering business all by means of the world
