After a brief historial review of the development of large medium-speed four-cycle engines, the paper investigates the limits of power increase. Piston speed and mean effective pressure have a variable influence concerning the thermal stresses of engine parts. Another section of this paper investigates the consequences, originating from largeness of engine parts, on design, engine components, and maintenance. The dimensions of the new generation of large medium-speed diesel engines demand and enable constructions which are different from previous solutions.
