- Strong coverage of regulations to help readers incorporate all-important international standards and requirements into their designs
- Equips readers to understand and deal with a ship's stability from the first stages of the design, through the construction phase to use and through its life
Outlines a clear approach to developing stability models and analyses using computational methods
Ship Hydrostatics and Stability covers recent developments in the field of naval architecture such as parametric resonance (also known as the Mathieu effect), the effects of non-linear motions on stability, the influence of ship lines, and new international stability regulations for small vessels. Extensive use of computer techniques is made throughout and downloadable MATLAB files accompany the book to support readers' own hydrostatic and stability calculations.
Naval architects involved in the design of ships and offshore structures; Students of naval architecture and marine engineering; Engineers, crew and officers managing stability aboard naval ships.
