An engine room simulator as an educational tool for marine engineers relating to explosion and fire prevention of marine diesel engines

  title={An engine room simulator as an educational tool for marine engineers relating to explosion and fire prevention of marine diesel engines},
  author={Leszek M. Chybowski and hab. inż. Katarzyna Gawdzińska and Oskar Ślesicki and Kamil Patejuk and Grzegorz Nowosad},
The paper presents basic information about the prevention of explosions and fires in marine engines, with particular reference to explosions in the crankcase. It also discusses the possibility of using engine room simulators in educating marine officer engineers to prevent dangerous situations during actual marine diesel operation. Two scenarios have been shown that illustrate the developments in the case of improper operation of main bearings while the operation of an engine safety system is…
