MARINE STEAM TURBINES. MARINE ENGINEERING DESIGN AND INSTALLATION SERIES

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.
