Design Principles of Ships and Marine Structures

   In the last 40 years, the author has been involved in teaching ship design and associated subjects, stability and hydrodynamics and industrial activity related to marine design. During this period, design methodology underwent tremendous changes and improvements. With the availability of high-speed computing and many sophisticated software, advanced numerical techniques are being applied to maritime design procedure at the concept design stage. The use of empirical formulations has reduced. Also, in recent years, concerns of energy consumption, environment, safety and reliability have increased. Designers are increasingly incorporating such aspects at the design stage to reduce these concerns. With increasing competition, it has become necessary to look at the effectiveness of design from the economic point of view such as project profitability and shipbuilding cost. With these varied requirements, the system design aspects in large complex products have become important and it is necessary to evaluate alternatives for each system or unit, as well as the final product. Systems engineering applications try to integrate technical, environmental or societal and economic systems, making a final complex marine platform. The management of design activities has also become increasingly important and complex, providing space for creativity and innovation. This book intends to make the reader aware oi all these aspects oi design and their integration. As the title of the book indicates, the subjects deal with the many and varied principles of design. The chapters of the book are fairly varied in nature, the intention being to focus on the importance of each of the topics covering the entire sphere of marine design. For each chapter, there are enough books written by renowned authors and the reader is advised to refer to those books if needed, to produce good design work. With the author's experience of more than 40 years in marine design applications, the book is written focussing on marine design with examples of ships wherever necessary. He believes that the principles described in this book can be applied to successful designs of any other marine structure or vehicle, the details being different in each case.

The Ship that Wouldnt Die - The Saga of the USS Neosho - A World War II Story of Courage and Survival at Sea

   The best-selling and award-winng author of this very interesting work on naval history, Don Keith, is not actually the technical historian, but he is a perfect storyteller. That is the reason why this book would not be the best choice for the serious students of history and experts in this field; however, it will definitely serve as the excellent easy reading for everyone wishing to get a feel for the bravery of the sailors of the World War Two - the book is written in a crisp style that will put the reader in the middle of the story but will not resort to fake sentimentality.

The Roman Navy - Ships, Men and Warfare 350BC-AD475

   The Roman Navy or, more accurately, the naval forces of the Roman state, is more often than not consigned to little more than a couple of paragraphs in many accounts of Roman military endeavour. In fact, it was for over 800 years an integral part of the armed forces of that Roman state and became the world's first ;super-power: navy. It was the instrument by which Rome achieved domination of the western Mediterranean, which enabled her expansion into the lands surrounding it and the foundation of her empire; it was naval forces that enabled the Romans to intervene and eventually to dominate the Eastern Mediterranean and the lands of the near east. It was a naval campaign and a sea battle that established and secured power for the first of the emperors of Rome; it was the navy's domination that enabled trade and the economy of the empire to grow and to flourish, free from the scourge of piracy and to an extent not equalled until the twentieth century. Finally, it was the loss of that domination that was a vital factor in the disintegration and ending of the Western Roman Empire. Cicero's dictum that 'The master of the sea must inevitably be master of the empire' has proved to be true in every Europe-wide war since. At its height, during the Punic Wars, the navy accounted for fully a third of the total Roman military effort and during imperial times it averaged rather more than a tenth of it...

Dynamics of Crank-Piston Mechanisms

   This monograph was written with the intention to provide the design specialists and specialists-manufacturers as well as students and scientists with the research work on crank-piston mechanisms considering both basic and additional motions. It studies the mechanisms with clearances in kinematic pairs to get the full dynamical analyses. The book also focuses in the general problems of dynamics and the authors tried to determine the necessity of carrying out the dynamical research of crank-piston mechanisms. The durability and reliability of such machines and mechanisms were defined by means of comparative method on theoretical and practical results.

The Gondola Philadelphia & the Battle of Lake Champlain

   This publication will tell readers about one of the veterans of the American Revolutionary War, namely the Continental gondola Philadelphia, which is the oldest intact warships, being currently on display in North America. It was recovered from the bottom of Lake Champlain in 1935. The ship was fifty-four foot long and armed with three cannon and eight swivel guns. In the sixty-four years since her recovery, no one has produced any analysis of this vessel or the associated artifacts. In his work, archaeologist John Bratten details the history, construction, tools, armament, utensils, personal items, and rigging elements of this famous gunboat, taking advantage of contemporary records in order to describe the ship's artifacts...

The French Assault on American Shipping, 1793-1813

   The famous conflict between America and with France is still called a "quasi" war. There was no solemn declaration of war made (though a bill to declare war came within two votes). The term "war" itself had various meanings to the different parties people involved in the conflict - obviously, the soldiers, the naval commanders the legislators, the jurists, the merchants, and the diplomats all saw armed conflict differently. This book is an attempt for a comprehensive accounting of all losses sustained by the American merchant marine at the hands of French privateers, consular officials, public vessels as well as and colonial administrators during the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic eras as reported to the State Department. Initial reports of losses came from masters, ship owners, shippers, and insurers who filed the claims and protests for damages sustained.
