EM620 - Marine Propulsion Systems


Credits: 3

This introductory course addresses the fundamentals of marine propulsion prime movers, propulsion systems, and associated auxiliary machinery and systems.  The course covers diesel, gas turbines, conventional, steam, and nuclear propulsion plants, as well as the required fluid support systems, transmission systems, and basic control systems.  Students will apply knowledge of the engineering sciences (fluid dynamics, heat transfer, strength of materials, and thermodynamics) to the analysis of marine power plants. This course includes an on-campus laboratory session.

This course may substitute for an elective for those students who do not have an undergraduate degree in marine engineering or naval architecture.

Prerequisites: Undergraduate thermodynamics.
