DIESEL ENGINE DESIGN INSTALLATION FROM THE VIEWPOINT OF A SHIPYARD

This paper discusses the competitive issues, operational issues, and risk areas, giving examples of diesel experience in a shipyard. The shipyard must consider basic engine fuel consumption, propeller efficiency, added fuel-saving measures, the cost of the propulsion, access to the engine, piston removal, effect upon ship's structure, the relationship to the shaft centre-line, engine alignment, foundation support and the selection of rpm that will tolerate ship fouling, torsional vibration and noise.
