Key Features

* Adheres to international standards and terminology
* Includes real life practical examples and calculations to illustrate the hydrostatic approach to ship stability
* Accompanied by free downloadable MATLAB files to support readers' own hydrostatic and stability calculations

Description

The hydrostatic approach to ship stability aims to balance idealized ship weight against buoyancy forces. This textbook is a complete guide to understanding ship hydrostatics in ship design and ship performance.

Adrian Biran guides readers from first principles through basic and applied hydrostatic and ship stability theory, and introduces contemporary mathematical techniques for hydrostatic modelling and analysis. Real life examples of the practical application of hydrostatics are used to explain the theory and calculations; and to illustrate the effect shifting weights and central gravity displacements have on overall ship stability.

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.

Readership

Practicing naval architects; marine engineers; undergraduate and graduate level students of naval architecture or ocean engineering.

Quotes and reviews

"The hydrostatic approach to ship stability aims to balance idealized ship weight against buoyancy forces. This textbook is a complete guide to understanding ship hydrostatics in ship design and ship performance. Real life examples explain the theory and calculations." Offshore Engineer, October 2004

"I found the book to be a thorough, well-referenced treatment of those areas of naval architecture it set out to cover. The subject matter is developed in a logical way as the reader progresses through the book. It will be very useful to those taking a degree or practising in the field." Eric Tupper, Author of Introduction to Naval Architecture, The Naval Architect, Feb 04

"The book meets expectations of both academia and practice. This excellent textbook, which may also serve as reference throughout the professional career, deserves unrestricted recommendation and should soon be found on the bookshelf of any naval architect or mariner."
Volker Bertram - author of Practical Ship Hydrodynamics and Ship Design for Efficiency and Economy

"The author guides readers from first principles though basic and applied hydostatic and ship stability theory, and introduced conteporary mathematical techniques for hydrostatic modeling and analysis" Sea Technology, Nov 03
