Thayer, C. B.; Farris, C. L.
This Navy training and self-study manual is designed to provide a basic theoretical and practical understanding of primarily diesel engines and associated equipment, the main emphasis being on shipboard types and operations. Each chapter offers verbal and pictorial description of machinery, with both schematic and equipment-specific depiction of operation. Chapters cover basic reciprocating internal combusion engine theory, parts, operating principles, and mechanisms; engine starting, cooling, and lubricating systems; diesel air and fuel systems; compressed air systems; refrigeration and air conditioning systems; pumps and valves; distilling plants; lathes and lathe machinery operations; propulsion control systems and power transmission. At the end of the text there is a glossary and a series of study assignments, each with its own learning objectives clearly stated, followed by corresponding test questions. The emphasis throughout is on proper maintenance and operation of equipment based on understanding and practical experience. (CP)
