Product description

Marine Engineering Series: Marine Steam Engines and Turbines by W. J. Fox A.M.I.Mech.E., M.I.Mar.E. and S. C. McBirnie A.M.I.Mech.E., A.M.I.E.S.

In this comprehensive book the authors place at the disposal of students and engineers the fruits of an aggregate of twenty-five years practical and teaching experience of Marine Engineering. The book covers the relevant sections of the First and Second Class Ministry of Transport Certificates of Competency, and the clear way in which the steam-engines and turbines are built up in logical sequence should make it invaluable to the student. It will also be of interest as a practical book of reference to the sea-going engineer, who will be particularly interested in the sections on breakdowns and emergency repairs, maintenance and procedure on watch. Many theoretical problems are covered as well as elementary turbine mathematics. Lucid text and carefully selected illustrations make this the ideal book for seagoing engineers and for those intending to take their Certficate of Competency examination in this subject.

Damage to dust jacket and Foxing along edges. Blue boards in good condition.

Second edition published by George Newnes Limited 1961
