We also have specially illustrated pages, featuring our hero, Mabuk, that let you think over situations sometimes encountered in the shipping and engineering environment, and invite you to give your solution to them.

You don't have to worry if you do not know the answers because we provide them after you have given up.

Calculations

Engineers working on ships of different makes often have to get used to the engineering units used on board ship. Some of the instruction manuals may contain references to units that are unfamiliar or need to be converted. Our calculation page will help you calculate the equivalent values for commonly used engineering units.

There are a lot of engineering units in the world in used today. There are also other references that simply cannot be remembered. For reference, we have made it convenient for you to find out things like steam properties, conversion units, metric and british units, motor full load currents for various voltages, viscosity conversions, piping sizes and dimensions and many others. These references can be found here.

Engineering Tools

We have also assembled a collection of commonly used hand tools complete with photographs for you to identify their names. We feel that it helps in your communication with other staffs on the ship if you can correctly state the exact names in your instructions to them.

The ship is quite a large structure. It will help matters and boost morale, if your workers have confidence in your orders. If they have to climb many staircases just to bring tools to you, make sure your instructions are clear.

More Detailed Information for Marine Engineers

Lastly, we know you are here because you want to know about ships and other floating vessels. Our pages on ships contains information about the various types of ships, their construction and several information on ship stability and naval architecture.

More detailed information on ship construction, and machinery can be obtained by downloading our free e-book, "General Engineering Knowledge Notes". This e-book is written specially for those marine engineers who want to sit for their competency license examinations and pass.

You too, can make use of the notes contained there. It is written in a simple, and concise manner so that anybody can understand them. However, in writing the e-book, we have assumed that the reader has already got some basic knowledge and experience working on board ship. This is because for this licensing examination, the candidate is required to have acquired several months of sea time before they are allowed to sit for it.

Download free e-book, "Motor Engineering Knowledge Notes" and "Naval Architecture Questions and Answers" and "Electro-Technology Questions and Answers"

Do contact us and send us your thoughts, perhaps on courses or e-books that you would like to see in the future, how you have benefited from our notes, etc.
