Naval Engineering Plants (1955a1990) takes a look back over a thirty-five year period of the fundamentals of shipboard machinery, equipment, and engineering plants. Engineering theories on the background of ship propulsion and steering, measuring devices, lubrication systems, and energy exchanges are explained. Conventional steam turbine propulsion plants are presented in propulsion boilers, steam turbines, and heat transfer apparatus in condensate and feed systems. Common principles of diesel, gasoline, and gas turbine engines are provided. Nuclear power plants are examined in terms of the fission process, reactor control, and naval nuclear power plant. This book covers a select period of engineering machinery and systems of ships. The reader will learn the operation and maintenance of main power plants and the associated auxiliary machinery and equipment for the propulsion of various ships, without the details. Inside, you will find a host of systems like diesel engines, gas turbines, boilers, steam turbines, heat exchangers, and pumps and compressors, electrical machinery; hydraulic machinery, refrigeration machinery, lubricating oil, compressed gas, and equipment for automation and control. An emphasis has been placed on helping the reader to acquire an overall view of Navy shipboard engineering plants from 1955 through 1990.Common principles of diesel, gasoline, and gas turbine engines are provided. Nuclear power plants are ... He has developed and implemented myriad engineering documents, handbooks, training aids and programs. Collins is an expert inanbsp;...
