    1 Steam Properties Our Steam Engine Plants Steam engines work by using the expansion of high-pressure steam to push against moving pistons in the cylinders of reciprocating engines, or against the moving vanes of steam turbines. When the Berkeley and the Medea were built, steam piston engines, after a century of develop-File Size: 2MB.   However, the diesel marine engine was also developed, notably by the Germans, instead of steam turbines.

A marine steam engine is a steam engine that is used to power a ship or article deals mainly with marine steam engines of the reciprocating type, which were in use from the inception of the steamboat in the early 19th century to their last years of large-scale manufacture during World War ocating steam engines were progressively replaced in marine applications.

Having now descrlbed the usual arrangements for producing the rotary motion of a shaft, which motion is essential for marine propulsion (using reciprocating engines), we will consider an example of the 'rotary engine' which is being used to a small extent for this purpose, viz.

the marine steam turbine introduced and perfected by the Hon. Marine turbine engines have mostly been replaced by large two stroke diesel engines as a means of ships propulsion.

This was mainly because of the great difference in fuel consumption, even modern oil-fired steam boilers consumption was up to 30% more than that of today’s big diesels. The superheated steam enters the high pressure (HP) stage (the astern turbine is on the same.
