Reeds Marine Engineering and Technology Series Reeds Vol 3: Applied Thermodynamics for Marine Engineers - Paul Anthony Russell; William Embleton; Leslie Jackson (Paperback) 17-02-2022
This authoritative textbook will cover the principal topics in thermodynamics for officer cadets studying Merchant Navy Marine Engineering Certificates of Competency (CoC) as well as the core syllabi in thermodynamics for undergraduate students in marine engineering, naval architecture and other marine technology related programmes. It will cover the laws of thermodynamics and of perfect gases, their principles and application in a marine environment. This new edition will be fully updated to reflect the recent changes to the Merchant Navy syllabus and current pathways to a sea-going engineering career, including National Diplomas, Higher National Diploma and degree courses. This new content will focus on how the the formulae and calculations apply to the actual workplace, and these updates will open up the potential market in the UK as well as appealing to more of the international market. Each chapter has fully worked examples interwoven into the text, with test examples at the end of each chapter. Other revisions include new material on combined steam and motor propulsion systems, expanded sections on different IC engine cycles, information on the modern use of steam and gas turbines for the production of electrical power, and more.
