The term Condition Monitoring is in this context used to describe instrumental aids for evaluating functioning and physical condition of vital components during normal running of an engine. The objectives of such systems are reviewed, and some considerations on economical and operational sequences of main engine failures are presented as experienced by a shipping company. Based on a survey of typical failures of cylinder units of large diesel engines and their most probable causes, a series of possible monitoring parameters are reviewed.
