Since its first appearance in 1950, Pounder's Marine Diesel Engines has served seagoing engineers, students of the Certificates of Competency examinations and the marine engineering industry throughout the world. Each new edition has noted the changes in engine design and the influence of new technology and economic needs on the marine diesel engine.
Now in its ninth edition, Pounder's retains the directness of approach and attention to essential detail that characterized its predecessors. There are new chapters on monitoring control and HiMSEN engines as well as information on developments in electronic-controlled fuel injection. It is fully updated to cover new legislation including that on emissions and provides details on enhancing overall efficiency and cutting CO2 emissions.
After experience as a seagoing engineer with the British India Steam Navigation Company, Doug Woodyard held editorial positions with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and the Institute of Marine Engineers. He subsequently edited The Motor Ship journal for eight years before becoming a freelance editor specializing in shipping, shipbuilding and marine engineering. He is currently technical editor of Marine Propulsion and Auxiliary Machinery, a contributing editor to Speed at Sea, Shipping World and Shipbuilder and a technical press consultant to Rolls-Royce Commercial Marine.

The HCS12 / 9S12: An Introduction to Software and Hardware Interfacing
The Freescale HCS12 (also known as 9S12) microcontroller family was initially designed for
automotive applications. The design of the HCS12 combines most features common in major
8-bit and 16-bit microcontrollers.

C++ Programming Fundamentals
C++ Programming Fundamentals teaches the basics of C++ programming in an easy-to-follow style, without assuming previous experience in any other language. A variety of examples such as game programming, club membership, organization, grade tracking and grade point average calculation, make learning C++ both fun and practical. Each...
Collision Detection in Interactive 3D Environments The heart of any system that simulates the physical interaction between objects is collision detectionthe ability to detect when two objects have come into contact. This system is also one of the most difficult aspects of a physical simulation to implement correctly, and invariably it is the main consumer of CPU cycles. Practitioners, new to the...
