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.

Marine Boilers

Everett A. Catlin (3rd Edition, Updated)

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 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 Future

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

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.

Shafting, Bearings and Lubrication

Kevin D. Prince

This chapter focuses on the design of the propulsion shafting, the shaft bearings and their lubrication. The propeller hydrodynamic design and the design of reduction gears are presented in other chapters and are not repeated here. Although the fundamentals outlined in the following sections apply to all types of prime movers and propulsors, the discussion is for a propulsion plant using a fixed-pitch propeller and a geared diesel prime mover in order to avoid being unduly confusing in the discussion. However, considerations are discussed where the selection of a prime mover has an influence on the shafting design.

Heat Transfer and Heat Exchangers

Profs. Benjamin H. Scott and Edwin G. Wiggins

Heat exchangers are used to transfer heat from a hotter fluid (liquid or gas) to a colder fluid (liquid or gas). This broad definition encompasses a wide array of equipment, including boilers, condensers, distilling plants, and ventilation cooling coils, which are given detailed coverage in other chapters. Consequently, this chapter if focused upon the many other types of shell-and-tube, plate, and compact heat exchangers that are used aboard ships and includes an assessment of thermal design, mechanical design, and design-for-manufacture considerations.

Reliability, Safety and Risk Assessment

Dr. John Kokarakis, Prof. Dimitrios Lyridis, and Prof. Konstantinos Anyfantis

This is a completely new chapter that deals with Reliability and Risk Assessment, two closely related topics that are built on the use of probability considerations and analysis. The maritime field is in a period of rapid technological change where concepts and projects are often moving in advance of the development of technical standards. In these cases, proof of concept and implementation must be accepted on the basis of showing equivalent risk to current projects. Its authors, Dr. John Kokarakis of Bureau Veritas and Profs. Dimitios Lyridis and Konstantinos Anyfantis of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), are members of the Greek Section of the Society. The Society is pleased to be able to include their contribution in this 4th Edition of Marine Engineering.
