9781330576311: A Manual of Marine Engineering: Comprising the Design, Construction, and Working of Marine Machinery (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from A Manual of Marine Engineering: Comprising the Design, Construction, and Working of Marine Machinery

The demand for the Manual having exhausted the edition, the opportunity has been taken to make such alterations and addition as will bring it up to date. Although such a comparatively short time has elapsed since it was revised, the modifications and extensions of the Rules of the Board of Trade, Lloyd's Register, Bureau Veritas, British Corporation, &c., have been considerable, and they are now all noted in this edition.

The use of superheated steam on board ship has been revived in a tentative way, the advantages of steam in this state are obvious, and the possibilities and value of it are shown in diagrammatic form (Fig. 16a) from experiments made with engines of the marine type, or of the types analagous to it, in central electric station on shore.

In Appendix N, the turbine as a marine motor is discussed.

In conclusion, the author trusts that this revised edition may meet with as kindly a reception as has been accorded to its predecessors.

Description du livre Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from A Manual of Marine Engineering: Comprising the Design, Construction, and Working of Marine Machinery In 1880, the triple compound engine was little more than a dream; in fact, there were then many people who believed in, and continued to use, the ordinary expansive engine. The highest boiler pressure used by advanced and enterprising engineers was 100 lbs. Per square inch, and few of them had ventured even so far as that. Steel crank-shafts, and other heavy forgings made of steel, were looked upon as luxuries to be indulged in only by the British and Foreign Governments, and wealthy corpora tions. At the present time ingot steel forgings are common enough, and not very much dearer than iron ones. Engines with three cranks were few and far between, and generally limited to very large compound engines, in which a single low-pressure cylinder would have been abnormally large. Today, most of the ships recently built have engines with three cranks, and even tug boats and other small steamers are generally fitted with three crank triple engines, While larger vessels not infrequently have four-crank triple and quadruple engines.
