ANALYSIS OF STEAM PROPULSION PLANTS
The main purpose of this work is to introduce students of marine engineering to learn how to do steam propulsion plant heat balances. They are not intended to compete with the SNAME heat balance bulletin, but rather to cover general principles and calculational techniques that that bulletin neglects because it is not an instructional tool for the uninitiated. At this time, the SNAME Marine Engineering (1971) has not been published. It will also instruct in heat balance principles and techniques, but some points are covered here that are not included in that book, so that these notes should retain a fair part of their value even after it becomes available.
