Complete Examination Questions and Answers for Marine and Stationary Engineers: Complete (Classic Reprint)

The development of the science of steam engineering and the continually increasing demand for more power for manufacturing purposes and for transportation, both on land and sea, have in these modern times resulted in the creation of power plants, which are truly marvelous in their details when compared with the steam machinery of forty years ago. Even the last twenty years have witnessed tremendous developments along these lines, and we may imagine the effect it would have upon an engineer, who twenty years ago was counted as first class in his business, but who, having taken a Rip Van Winkle sleep of twenty years, is suddenly awakened and finds himself set down in the engine room of a first-class ocean steamer, or in the midst of one of our modern up-to-date power plants. The facts are, he would have hard work to recognize his surroundings. Even the steam gauges would indicate a pressure of 150 to 175 pounds more per square inch than did the old-time gauges. Therefore, in view of the remarkable improvements in steam machinery which have been made and are continually being made, it certainly behooves engineers to do their utmost to keep step with the march of progress. The author has endeavored, in the following pages, to place before his readers information in a catechetical form which will be found to cover all of the various details appertaining to the operation of modern steam plants, both stationary and marine.
