Written by an experienced marine engineering consultant, author and lecturer, this book presents key facts and formulas, backed up throughout by relevant theory, illustrations and photographs. It includes examples of modern ship-types and their general particulars and covers topics ranging from design and power coefficients to types of ship resistance; types of ship speed; types of power on ships; designing a ship's propeller; details of maximum ship squats; the phenomena of interaction of ships in confined waters; mechanisms for improving ship handling; and improvements in power output.
This book is an essential introduction and reference for students and those newly at sea, as well as for anyone involved with ship design, marine engineering, naval architecture, and the day-to-day operation of ships in port.* Accessible information on understanding and improving ship performance at your fingertips
