Jones Engineering Laboratory

The Jones Laboratory is primarily utilised for marine engineering teaching, consultancy and research. The Laboratory includes a number of marine diesel engine test beds providing a wide range of power outputs. Uniquely, a large medium speed engine is available which is fully instrumented.

Services Offered

The Jones Engine laboratory is fully supported by marine, mechanical and electronic technicians with facilities for fabrication and machining to allow test rigs and prototype equipment to be produced 'in-house'.

The laboratories includes a number of marine diesel engine test beds providing a wide range of power outputs. Uniquely, a large medium speed engine is available which is fully instrumented. Parameters which can be measured and analysed are:

  • engine brake horse power
  • fuel consumption
  • cylinder pressure
  • fuel injection pressure
  • needle valve lift
  • valve temperature
  • cylinder liner temperature

A fuel atomisation test and measurement rig is also available together with engine emissions measurement equipment.
