Since its first appearance in 1950, Pounder's 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. Now in its ninth edition, Pounder's retains the directness of approach and attention to essential detail that characterized its predecessors. There are new chapters on monitoring control and HiMSEN engines as well as information on developments in electronic-controlled fuel injection. It is fully updated to cover new legislation including that on emissions and provides details on enhancing overall efficiency and cutting CO2 emissions. After experience as a seagoing engineer with the British India Steam Navigation Company, Doug Woodyard held editorial positions with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and the Institute of Marine Engineers. He subsequently edited The Motor Ship journal for eight years before becoming a freelance editor specializing in shipping, shipbuilding and marine engineering. He is currently technical editor of Marine Propulsion and Auxiliary Machinery, a contributing editor to Speed at Sea, Shipping World and Shipbuilder and a technical press consultant to Rolls-Royce Commercial Marine. * Helps engineers to understand the latest changes to marine diesel engineers * Careful organisation of the new edition enables readers to access the information they require * Brand new chapters focus on monitoring control systems and HiMSEN engines. * Over 270 high quality, clearly labelled illustrations and figures to aid understanding and help engineers quickly identify what they need to know.

Pounder’s Marine Diesel Engines and Gas Turbines, Tenth Edition, gives engineering cadets, marine engineers, ship operators and managers insights into currently available engines and auxiliary equipment and trends for the future. This new edition introduces new engine models that will be most commonly installed in ships over the next decade, as well as the latest legislation and pollutant emissions procedures. Since publication of the last edition in 2009, a number of emission control areas (ECAs) have been established by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) in which exhaust emissions are subject to even more stringent controls. In addition, there are now rules that affect new ships and their emission of CO2 measured as a product of cargo carried. Provides the latest emission control technologies, such as SCR and water scrubbers Contains complete updates of legislation and pollutant emission procedures Includes the latest emission control technologies and expands upon remote monitoring and control of engines

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.

Since its first appearance in 1950, Pounder's 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. This new edition has been completely re-written and re-structured, while retaining the directness of approach and attention to essential detail that characterised its predecessors. There are new sections covering principles and theory, and engine selection, and important developments such as the use of high speed diesel engines (for instance in fast ferry craft) are treated in full. In addition, numerous illustrations of all the listed types of engines appear in their relevant chapters.
