«Engine Management Propulsion» subject includes theoretical and practical information about advanced training for work on any type of vessel. Knowledge of this information directly shows employee’s competence who holds a relevant post on a vessel. Propulsion on a vessel refers to the system or mechanisms responsible for generating the force necessary to move the vessel through water. There are several types of propulsion systems commonly used on vessels.

Diesel engines are widely used for propulsion in various types of vessels, including commercial ships, cargo vessels, and smaller boats. These engines burn diesel fuel to produce rotational motion, which is then transmitted to a propeller or water jet to generate thrust. Gas turbine engines are often used in high-speed vessels, such as naval warships, fast ferries, and some luxury yachts. They operate by burning fuel (usually marine diesel or natural gas) to produce hot gases that drive a turbine, which in turn drives the propeller or water jet.

Therefore, we recommend carefully reading each question and making decision with no hurry. In case you have some difficulty answering, you have also possibility to request a hint.

Code: OAET A U tube manometer is used to measure the pressure delivered by a ventilation fan. Following replacement of the fan by a larger unit with a higher delivery rate and pressure the liquid is blown out of the open end of the manometer. Which of the options given will allow the manometer to be used to measure the delivery pressure of the larger fan?
Refill the manometer with liquid with a higher density.
Refill the manometer with liquid with a higher viscosity.
Refill the manometer with a reduced the amount of liquid.
I don’t know.

Code: WNMM The torsion meter for the main propeller shaft is reading high. The torque is sensed using the angle of twist principle with two clamp rings attached to the shaft at a fixed distance, with stationary proximity switches for measuring the angle of twist and also shaft speed fixed to a rigid stool. What is the most likely cause of the high reading?
Circumferential slip of the after clamp ring in the opposite direction to shaft rotation.
Axial slip of one of the clamp rings to bring them closer together.
Axial slip of one of the clamp rings to move them further apart.
Circumferential slip of the forward clamp ring in the opposite direction to shaft rotation.
