Naval architecture. Shipbuilding. Marine engineering

Most popular at the top

  • Boat Watchingby Edmund W. Jupp

    Intellect 2003; US$ 10.00

    The aim of the Watching series is to draw attention to some of the very interesting items around us, things that perhaps we don't notice as much as we might. The first was Bridge Watching, and when this was put ''on the Net'' it produced, to the surprise of the author, such a pleasant flood of e-mail that another was written, called Water Watching.... more...

  • Introduction to Naval Architectureby E. C. Tupper

    Elsevier Science 2004; US$ 76.95

    The fundamental characteristics of a ship?s design, and how they affect its behaviour at sea are of crucial importance to many people involved in the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of all marine vessels. Naval architects and those working in ship design need to understand these principles in depth. Marine engineers must likewise recognise... more...

  • Ship Motion Controlby Tristan Perez

    Springer 2006; US$ 239.00

    This title is aimed at practising naval engineers who need the latest research in stabilization for their designs; academic control engineers working with stabilization systems; and from academics and students in control or marine engineering looking for up-to-date background or for ideas for academic project work. more...

  • Steamby Andrea Sutcliffe

    Palgrave Macmillan 2005; US$ 28.00

    In 1807, Robert Fulton, using an English mail-order steam engine, chugged four miles an hour up the Hudson River, passing into popular folklore as the inventor of the steamboat. However, the true first passenger steamboat in America, and the world, was built from scratch, and plied the Delaware River in 1790, almost two decades earlier. Its inventor,... more...

  • Design of Ship Hull Structuresby Masaki Mano; Yasuhisa Okumoto; Yu Takeda; Tetsuo Okada

    Springer 2009; US$ 229.00

    Shows how to design ship hull structures. This book presents the fundamentals, the theory and the application of structural design of hulls. It explains why structural design needs are to be carried out on several levels in order to ensure that correct loading is applied and that local structural behavior in properly understood. more...

  • Risk-Based Ship Designby Apostolos Papanikolaou

    Springer 2009; US$ 239.00

    Presents an understanding of the fundamentals and details of the integration of risk-based approaches into the ship design process. This book facilitates the transfer of knowledge from research work to the wider maritime community and advances scientific approaches dealing with risk-based design and ship safety. more...

  • Control of Ships and Underwater Vehiclesby Khac Duc Do; Jie Pan

    Springer 2009; US$ 239.00

    Most ocean vessels are underactuated but control of their motion in the real ocean environment is essential. Control of Ships and Underwater Vehicles concentrates on the control of underactuated ocean vessels both surface and submarine. Having more degrees of freedom to be controlled than the number of independent control inputs these vessels give... more...

  • WIG Craft and Ekranoplanby Liang Yun

    Springer 2010; US$ 199.00

    WIGs (Wing in Ground) are advanced hybrid air cushion crafts and they offer the combination of speed, fuel efficiency, and ride smoothness. WIG rides above the surface like an airplane on a dynamic air cushion that is produced by the vessel's forward motion. This title provides an overview of the design, development and building of WIG vessels. more...

  • Torsion and Shear Stresses in Shipsby Mohamed Shama

    Springer 2010; US$ 209.00

    In the last few decades, much research work was conducted to improve ship structure analysis and design. Most of the efforts were directed to improve the strength of hull girder and to use the method of finite element analysis more efficiently and effectively. Because of the high degree of complexity of ship structures the interaction between hull... more...

  • Practical Ship Hydrodynamicsby Volker Bertram

    Elsevier Science 2011; US$ 99.95

    Practical Ship Hydrodynamics provides a comprehensive overview of hydrodynamic experimental and numerical methods for ship resistance and propulsion, maneuvering, seakeeping and vibration. Beginning with an overview of problems and approaches, including the basics of modeling and full scale testing, expert author Volker Bertram introduces the... more...
