Describes and illustrates the major features of the diesel engine, emphasizing the low speed type. Stresses the comprehension of the engine required for the application of the engines to ship propulsion rather than mere description or analysis of principles. Topics covered include: interactions with propeller and with hull; mounting in the ship; problems of noise and vibration; and machinery arrangement. Maintenance, fuels, and auxiliary systems are also analyzed as part of the concerns of a propulsion designer.
