Ohio State Univ., Columbus. National Center for Research in Vocational Education.; Army Transportation School, Fort Eustic, VA.
This volume of student materials for a secondary/postsecondary level course in principles of marine diesel engines is one of a number of military-developed curriculum packages selected for adaptation to vocational instruction and curriculum development in a civilian setting. The purpose of the individualized, self-paced course is to acquaint students with the operating cycles and systems that make up a diesel engine. It provides theory that is useful in laboratory and on-the-job learning experiences. The course is divided into two lessons: Diesel Engine Construction, Principles, and Structural Parts; and Valve Gear, Fuel Injection, and Governors. These materials are included: the reference text, "Basic Principles of Marine Diesel Engines" (five chapters and an appended glossary); and a student workbook that details lesson objectives, reading assignments from the text, review exercises, and review exercise answer keys. A course examination is included, but no answers are provided. (YLB)
