Description

This is a classic instructional text into
the underlying principles governing the
interaction between the ship, her hull
form and propulsion in both deep and
shallow water. Chapters cover: the
nature of water; waves; proximity; foils,
fins, and blades; turning corners;
fairness and flow; stability and stabilisation; vibration. The book
is the result of a lifetime’s work as a leading naval architect
whose insight will deeply interest anybody involved in designing
ships and taking them to sea.
