Reeds Vol 9: Steam Engineering Knowledge for Marine Engineers by Thomas D. Morton

Year: 2003

Description: The object of this book is to prepare students for the First and
Second Class Certificates of Competency in the subject of Steam
Engineering Knowledge.
The text is intended to cover the ground work required for both
examinations. The syllabus and principles involved are virtually the
same for both examinations but questions set in the First Class
require a more detailed answer.
The book is not to be considered as a close detail reference work
but rather as a specific examination guide, in particular almost all
the sketches are intended as direct applications to the examination
requirements. If further knowledge from an interest aspect is
required the student is advised to consult a specialist text book,
e-g., turbines, boilers, control theory, etc., as the range of modern
marine practice has superseded the times whereby all the subject
can be accurately presented in one volume.
The best method of study is to read carefully through each
chapter, practising sketchwork, and when the principles have been
mastered to attempt the few examples at the end of the chapter.
Finally, the miscellaneous questions at the end of the book should
be worked through. The best preparation for any examination is the
work on examples, this is difficult in the subject of Engineering
Knowledge as no model answer is available, nor indeed any one
text book to cover all the possible questions. As a guide it is
suggested that the student finds his information first and then
attempts each question in the book in turn, basing his answer on a
good descriptive sketch and writing occupying about 1 f sides of
foolscap in f hour.
All the miscellaneous specimen questions given at the end of the
book are from D.O.T. examinations together with the tea examples
at the end of chapter one.
