Marine Boilers, Third Edition provides practical information about boilers and other relevant equipment used at sea on steam and motor vessels. The coverage of the book includes auxiliary boilers, water tube boilers, and boiler mountings. The text also covers stresses in boiler shells; combustion of fuel in boilers; and boiler operation. The book will be of great use to marine engineers, mechanics, and technicians who primarily deals with marine-related machineries.
Stromeyer's book - first published in 1893 - is still a valuable source for people interested in the manufacture and management of marine boilers. The author shows how boilers must be designed for their work on ships and how any defects which may show themselves are re-moved. His descriptions are complemented by many drawings and practical examples.
Marine Steam Boilers: Fourth Edition deals with the involved concepts, parts and construction, usage and maintenance, and the future direction of steam boilers. The book covers topics such as the history of steam boilers; theoretical development of steam boilers; and the materials and methods used in their construction. Also covered are the types of boilers - the tank-type boiler, which includes horizontal and vertical boilers; water tube boilers such as the Foster Wheeler boiler, Babcock & Wilcox boilers, and combustion engineering boilers; and dual-fired boilers. The text is recommended for marine engineers who would like to know more about boilers, its different types and the advantages of each, and their operation.

Dieses vorliegende Werk aus dem Jahr 1893 von C. E. Stromeyer bietet auch heute noch eine nützliche Informationsquelle für alle, die sich für die Konstruktion, Herstellung und das Management von Schiffskesseln interessieren. Der Autor zeigt auf, welche Maßnahmen nötig sind um die Dampfkessel fachgerecht zu konstruieren, damit ein reibungsloser Ablauf auf Schiffen möglich ist, und wie mögliche Schäden behoben werden können. Hierbei handelt es sich um eine englischsprachige Ausgabe.
