Many ships at sea employ medium speed diesel engines for propulsion purposes and over the past decade there have been numerous changes to this type of machinery. This completely new edition provides up-todate information, including topics such as exhaust emission control, while considering recent developments in medium speed diesel engines, materials of construction, wear reducing systems, exhaust valve rotation, electronic governors, and engine management. This book describes the construction, installation and operation of medium speed marine propulsion engines, describing alternative engines confi gurations and forms of construction such as connecting rods, pistons and valve actuation systems, Developments in bearing and constructional materials are considered as are innovations for reducing cylinder liner wear such as anti-polishing systems. Written in a detailed and concise manner which includes questions asked in certifi cate of competency examinations, with over 60 diagrams, many integrated and specially drawn, this volume is a powerful tool for those studying for certifi cates of competency and for the practising engineer working at sea.
