It's just what it sounds like. The large open space, enclosed by steel outer walls, which houses the engines themselves on the lower decks and is continuous with their ventilation shafts (of smaller area) which rise through the upper decks. There are two of these casings, one for the main reciprocating engines and another smaller one for the turbines. Further forward are the 'boiler casings', 6 on the lower decks converging into three shafts as they rise through the upper decks to carry the exhaust smoke and steam to the first three funnels.
