Developments in two-stroke and four-stroke designs for propulsion and auxiliary power drives in the five years since the publication of the seventh edition of Pounder’s Marine Diesel Engines call for an update.
Rationalization in the engine design/building industry has also been sustained, with the larger groups continuing to absorb (and in some cases phase out) long-established smaller marques.
This eighth edition reflects the generic and specific advances made by marine engine designers and specialists in support technologies—notably turbocharging, fuel treatment, emissions reduction and automation systems—which are driven by: ship designer demands for more compactness and lower weight; shipowner demands for higher reliability, serviceability and overall operational economy; and shipbuilder demands for lower costs and easier installation procedures.
