What is Diesel Engine ( Main Engine )

The diesel engine (also known as a compression-ignition or CI engine) is an internal

combustion engine in which ignition of the fuel that has been injected into the

combustion chamber is caused by the high temperature which a gas achieves (i.e. the

air) when greatly compressed (adiabatic compression). Diesel engines work by

compressing only the air. This increases the air temperature inside the cylinder to such

a high degree that it ignites atomised diesel fuel that is injected into the combustion

chamber. This contrasts with spark-ignition engines such as a petrol engine (gasoline

engine) or gas engine (using a gaseous fuel as opposed to petrol), which use a spark

plug to ignite an air-fuel mixture. In diesel engines, glow plugs (combustion chamber

pre-warmers) may be used to aid starting in cold weather, or when the engine uses a

lower compression-ratio, or both. The original diesel engine operates on the "constant

pressure" cycle of gradual combustion and produces no audible knock.

Purpose of Structural Parts

to support running parts

to keep them in position and line
to provide jackets and passages for cooling water, sumps, for lube oil
to form protective casing for running parts
to support auxiliaries (valves, camshaft, turbo blowers)

Purpose of System Components

Supply of air
Removal of exhaust
Supply and injection of fuel

Structural Parts

frame or column
engine or cylinder block
cylinder liners
cylinder head or cover

Bed Plate

foundation on which the engine is built

must be rigid enough to support the rest of the engine and hold the crankshaft

which sits on the bearing housing in alignment with transverse girders

at the same time, the bedplate has to be flexible enough to hog and sag with the

foundation plate to which it is attached and which forms part of the ship structure



load-carrying part of an engine

it may include parts as the cylinder block,base, sump and end plates

in two-stroke engines, frames are sometimes known as A-frames

Cylinder Block

part of the engine frame that supports the engine cylinder liners, heads and

cylinder blocks for most large engines are made of castings and plates that are

welded horizontally and vertically for strength and rigidity (stiffener)

entablature = cylinder block which incorporates the scavenge air spaces in two-

stroke engines

Cylinder liner

a bore in which an engine piston moves back and forth

replaceable component
the material of the liner must withstand extreme heat and pressure developed

within the combustion space at the top of the cylinder, and at the same time

must permit the piston and its sealing rings to move with a minimum of friction


Dry Liner
Wet Liner

Cylinder Liner

Cylinder head

the space at the combustion chamber top is formed and sealed by a cylinder

the cylinder head of a four-stroke engine houses intake and exhaust valves, the

fuel injection valve, air starting vale, safety valve

(the two-stroke engine lacks the intake valve)

Cylinder Head

Major Parts of the Main Engine

piston rod
connecting rod
crankshaft & its bearings

one of the major moving parts



must be designed to withstand extreme heat and combustion pressure

made of cast iron or aluminium (to reduce weight)
