Developed to compliment Volume 8 (General Engineering Knowledge), this indispensable book comprehensively covers the motor engineering syllabus for marine engineering officer cadets.
Starting with the theoretical and practical thermodynamic operating cycles, the book is structured to give a description of the engines and components used to extract energy from fossil fuels and achieve high levels of efficiency.
Accessibly written and clearly illustrated, this book is the only guide available for marine engineering students focusing on the knowledge needed for passing the motor engineering certificate of Competency (CoC) examinations.
This key textbook takes into account the varying needs of students studying motor engineering, recognising 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. An essential buy for any marine engineering student.
