This title has been specifically designed with the intention of John Newman, its author, to meet the needs for the ocean hydrodynamics text that is duly updated in terms of the approach and content. The publication is solidly based on the fundamental information; however, it also guides the students to a proper and thorough understanding of the various engineering applications. The content of the volume is very well-written and extremely easy-to-follow. The readers can learn a lot about the hydrofoil theory through the induction effects. It will be also useful for the people willing to get the understanding of the outboard propellers. The book is aimed to satisfy the existing needs for a good and comprehensive textbook that would cover the application of the hydrodynamics to the various marine problems. The topics presented in the book cover the whole diversity of the problems related to the ship steering and propulsion. The matter addressed in the book has been chosen taking into consideration its huge practical importance. Unfortunately, due to the restricted space some of the topics could not be covered, such as the 3D boundary level computations. However, the information that has been included in the book is remarkably useful and practical.
