Written to acquaint the marine engineer with the latest types of turbine and some of the problems common to turbines generally, this book concentrates on the steam turbine as a prime mover. The material is divided into two main sections, the first dealing with reasons for the steam turbine revival; the main types in use or available; prospects for the steam turbine in the immediate future; and developments to come. The second section covers certain faults which should be looked for on opening the casing; blade, wheel and rotor vibration; modal balancing of flexible rotors and specified limits of vibration; and certain case histories of turbine investigations. The book will also be a valuable work of reference for owners, ship-builders, engine builders, maintenance engineers and all who operate and manage ships.
