Marine Engineering

edited by Roy L. Harrington (1992)  

This edition of Marine Engineering presents more than twenty years of evolutionary changes in the maritime industry. The book provides a complete review of marine engineering, encompassing both naval and merchant practices and incorporating the broad range of technological developments that evolved during the last decades. Also included is material presenting the principles associated with pollution control, design for production, integrated logistic support and noise control, as well as expanded coverage of propulsion shafting and piping. Long-time SNAME member Roy L. Harrington, now retired from Newport News Shipbuilding, edited this landmark volume.

Design of Marine Engineering Systems in Ship Concept Design

by Alan Brown

Prof. Brown presents a rigorous approach to the integrated conceptual design of distributed mechanical, electrical and fluid marine engineering systems during the conceptual design of complex warships. The interdependence and complexity of ship systems is growing at such a rate that a total system-of-systems design approach is now essential. At each stage of design, the total ship system must be resolved at a level of detail sufficient to make decisions necessary to move to later design stages without costly backtracking. The modeling uses a network representation and linear programming to optimize the architecture and sizing of these systems considering normal operating, casualty and damage situations. The approach would be equally applicable to the integrated conceptual design and optimization of other complex offshore projects and vessels. This development was largely the result of a Navy sponsored cooperative program at Virginia Tech, the University of Michigan, Delft Technical University of Technology (DUT) and University College London (UCL) with collaboration from MIT and the Naval Surface Warfare Center. This new chapter would be an excellent starting point for teaching the overall design of marine engineering installations in an advanced undergraduate or graduate marine design course.

Thermodynamics, Combustion and Heat Engineering

by Jose Femenia

Prof. Emeritus Femenia presents an updated and modified coverage chapter that introduces the thermodynamics, combustion, heat transfer and heat engineering associated with marine power cycles and steam plant heat balances. This is based on a long career of teaching, consulting and research related to both marine and land-based power plants. Following a review of thermodynamic principles, the fundamentals of combustion and heat transfer are introduced.  Ideal power cycles are presented including regenerative and reheat vapor cycles. The thermodynamics and heat transfer associated with marine boilers are then briefly presented.  The external thermodynamics of marine steam turbines and the estimation of state lines are discussed.  This sets the stage for the introduction to the thermodynamics and heat balances of marine regenerative and reheat steam plants.  The chapter closes with a discussion of waste heat recovery and gas turbine and steam combined cycles. This chapter provides excellent text material for marine applied thermodynamics and heat engineering.  It would also provide a valuable review for marine engineering PE license study.

Sound and Noise Control

by Raymond W. Fischer

The newly revised edition of this material contains significant improvements and updates.  Creating a quiet ship is a complex process. A ship presents two diametrically opposite challenges to achieving a quiet environment. These are powerful equipment and propulsors inside and outside a confined floating space and comfort for the crew and passengers within that envelope. Just as a ship designer needs to consider power, speed, metacentric height, etc., they also should know about the acoustical design considerations prior to building the vessel. Fortunately, using the proper engineering, design tools, and appropriate planning, this process is relatively straightforward.

Integrated Electric Propulsion

by Norbert Doerry

The newly revised edition of this material contains significant improvements and updates.  Integrated Electric Propulsion (IEP), characteristic of an Integrated Power System (IPS), enables the same set of prime movers to provide ship propulsion via electric motors and drives while simultaneously providing electrical power to non-propulsion (hotel) loads. While electric propulsion has been incorporated into ships for over a century, the introduction of affordable high power semiconductor switches in the late 1980's facilitated the wider employment of IEP in commercial and naval vessels.

Marine Boilers

Everett A. Catlin (3rd Edition, Updated)

The newly revised edition of this material contains significant improvements and updates.  From the dawn of the Industrial Revolution the attention of many individuals focused on the advantages of powering ships by steam.  A study of the history of early marine boilers reveals that early designers and engineers did not lack novel and ingenious ideas for steam propulsion equipment. However, they did lack the materials and machine tools with which to implement these ideas.  Dependable boilers were sorely needed in the development of the steamboat.

Marine Nuclear Power

David J. Palmer & Michael Fitzgerald

The newly revised edition of this material contains significant improvements and updates.

The purpose of this chapter is to present a survey of the application of nuclear energy to marine propulsion. With the continued push to comply with ever increasing airborne emission reduction control laws, nuclear power is a viable option as it does not produce greenhouse gases or air pollution such as NOx, SOx, CO and CO2. This chapter is directed toward people having an engineering background but no experience regarding nuclear reactors. Fundamental atomic theory and nuclear reactor theory are described with an overview of former, current and possible advanced nuclear reactor options to propel and power future merchant marine and naval vessels.

Greenhouse Gases and a Low Carbon

Dr. Santiago Suárez de la Fuente &  Dr. Domagoj Baresic

The newly revised edition of this material contains significant improvements and updates.

In this edition, there are two chapters that address the science/policy background of the major environmental issues that affect the marine industry today: Greenhouse Gases and a Low Carbon Future, by Dr. Santiago Suárez de la Fuente, Dr. Domagoj Baresic and Prof. Tristan Smith, Energy Institute, University College London Biology of Marine Invasions and Biofouling, by Marcie Merksamer, Enviro Management Inc., Arroyo Grande, CA and John A. Lewis, ESLink Services, Castlemaine, Victoria, Australia.

The goal of these two chapters is to give marine engineers the background and foundation to better understand the issues and work effectively with other professionals who are involved in the development and response to the major environmental issues that will affect marine engineering in the years ahead. The authors of the GHG chapter have had lead roles in the key proposals placed before the IMO to establish the path forward. The latter chapter is the result of the cooperation of IMarEST in this new edition, which is greatly appreciated.
