This module aims to develop knowledge and understanding of general introduction to marine engineering systems onboard ships, familiarisation with the components of Marine engineering systems onboard a ship, and mathematical background to operation and analysis of engineering systems onboard ships.
This module covers both components of practice and science, which includes
1.Ships and Machinery: Types of propulsion engines, Main and Auxiliary Machinery arrangement
2.Marine Diesel Engines: Four-stroke and two-stroke cycles, Power measurement (indicated power, brake power, fuel power, efficiencies), Combustion equations, Stoichiometric air/fuel ratio calculation, Gas exchange process and pressure charging, Components of two and four stroke engines. Marine Engine Supporting Systems: Fuel system, lubricating oil system (including Cylinder oil lubrication), cooling systems and air starting system.
3.Boilers: Steam requirements, Boilers types, other boiler arrangements, boiler mountings, purity of boiler feed water, Boiler water treatment.
4.Definitions of basic parameters, properties, units, dimensions and energy groups.
5.Thermodynamics systems and control volumes: Closed and open systems.
