Ship Stability by DOKMAR
   Ship stability is deservedly considered one of the most difficult concepts to define. The whole technical idea of a stable character is grasped even though it is quite hard to be put in words. Same would apply to the notion of a stable vessel because stability is a very complex entity. It still plays a critically important role in ship navigation. Should the ship be unstable, immediate danger arises to the vessel and people on board as well at to the surrounding environment. That is the reason why the regulations have been established to govern the stability of the ships. One of the main strength of this volume is that it makes the ship stability visible to the readers and also makes it accessible and easily understandable even for the newcomers because of the approach applied by its author who has supplemented the theoretical part of the publication with numerous informative figures and illustrations as well as detailed drawings. The book is expected to be highly suitable for the professional training in the classroom or for the self-studying. All required and important topics have been addressed in this volume together with the abbreviations and terminology used in the naval architecture and ship stability, in particular. Note that this book is an excellent supplement to another publication prepared by the same author under title Ship Knowledge so we would recommend you to have a close look into both books.

Ice Induced Resistance of Ship Hulls

   The global warming and exploration of the hydrocarbons that is carried out in the Arctic region results in the constantly increasing maritime activity in iced waters. Nowadays, it is possible to predict if a ship will be capable of surviving an encounter with the ice of a particular given thickness; however such knowledge will not be enough to accurately predict the associated increase of the fuel costs. In the present thesis the investigation of the validity of the analytical formulations for the ice resistance in the above mentioned geographical region has been performed. Subject formulations have been based on the trials in the Swedish-Finnish waters having lower salinity and relatively warm climate in comparison to the ones of the Arctic waters. This has been conducted by comparing the ship resistance that is estimated on the basis of the information obtained from the onboard measurements of the ship's speed and thickness of the ice as well as the engine power with the estimates received from the analytical formulations. The topic addressed in this book is very challenging and rewarding. The thesis starts with the introduction followed by the description of the characteristics of the sea ice, models used for the calculation of the ice induced hull resistance, open-water resistance, analysis of the relevant statistical data, and many other important aspects.

LOAD AND GLOBAL RESPONSE OF SHIPS
   The present title is intended to provide the required introductory technical background to the naval architecture statistics. Each of the subjects discussed within this volume has been treated in detail, and this approach has been applied starting from the very first principle. The main objective of J. Jensen, the author of this volume, was to derive and present readers all required theoretical information for the prediction of the extreme loads and evaluation of the corresponding stresses in the hull girder of the ship. Though some part of the book is dedicated to the reliability analysis, this treatment shall be supplemented with the methods for the detailed evaluation of stress and also for the assessment of the structural strength of the ship's hull prior to the commencement of the reliability analysis. The class societies have issued their regulations covering the structural analysis of a vessel and proper selection of its scantlings. In the past, subject regulations gave formulas for the calculation of the hull thickness and size of the stiffening members. Such empirical regulations must be conservative so that they can be applied to the majority of the vessels. However the regulation have been changed with the advent of the powerful computers. Nowadays, naval architects can perform the structural analysis of the hull using the rational methods that are based on the first principles...

   The ship disasters that occurred in the past all serve as reminders to the professionals of the maritime industry of the serious need for the cost effective enhancement of the safety and also as strong indicators of the gaps existing there in the stability safety of the vessels. The latter problem is actually very complex, and practically meaningful solutions to it can be feasible only in case of close international co-operation and combining the efforts made by all members of the maritime community. A CRP, standing for the Collaborative Research Project, was launched some thirty years ago as a response to the above mentioned problem. The authors of the present publication have included selected and most valuable technical materials obtained from the first four CRP workshops. The book contains nearly fifty documents representing all currently available professional expertise related to the stability of the vessels, spanning seventeen different countries of the world. All of the papers included in this volume have been arranged in four groups, dealing with the stability of the intact ship, stability of a damaged ship, covering the special problems of ship stability, and addressing the impact that stability has on design and operation of the vessels. Definitely must-have book for all those people who wish to be kept updated with all recent happenings in the field of contemporary naval architecture, and ship stability in particular.

a treatise on naval architecture
 

   Naval officers having some basic mathematical ability can easily make themselves familiar with the fundamental principles governing the design of the vessels and the most commonly used calculation methods; however, those willing to become naval constructors would require long and very patient apprenticeship of the shipyard. The naval architecture addresses such the problems as how to make a vessel sail and carry weights, how to make the vessel stand right at sea and obey the commander, and go easily through the waves at a given speed, in fact everything connected with the construction of the vessels and prediction/calculation of their behavior at sea. In fact, shipbuilding itself implies giving the materials of which the vessel is to be made of all the shapes, forms and dimensions, as well as strength and power characteristics required to make them fully comply with the conditions that have been already calculated by the naval architects. he naval architects, shipbuilders and marine engineers are representing three professional skills. Their duties shall be performed successfully so that the duties of the newly built vessel may also be performed in a successful manner. All of these duties are considered essential but they do not have to be performed by three separate people... Have a look into this rare and classic book, you will not get disappointed, it is much more than a regular textbook.

damage stability of the small vessel
 

   The ship survivability is directly related to the requirements governing the intact/damage stability of the ship. It should actually be noted that the intact survivability of the vessels has received relatively more attention. The safety of the passenger ships has always been considered a prime concern for all regulatory authorities. There are several established and proven ways of assessment of the damage stability of the ships, including the probabilistic, deterministic methods and the real-time simulation. The main purpose of the present study was to address the further development of the ship stability software using the MATLAB program on the basis of the real time simulation, i.e. third approach, of the dynamic behavior of the damaged ship at waves. The particular vessel called "Sarawak Fast Ferry" has been specifically chosen to perform the parametric study for the further application of the DSP, standing for the Damage Stability Program, which, in turn, has been developed and introduced. The experiment has been conducted by means of the image processing and the results obtained during the experiment showed a remarkably good correlation to the simulation results. Subject results have also shown that the loading conditions and height of the waves are the most important and influencing factor to the stability of the vessels...

Ship Hydrostatics and Stability

   The hydrostatic approach applied to the problem of ship stability intends to find a due balance of the idealized weight of the ship and buoyancy forces acting on the hull. The present textbook may be treated as a complete guide book to be used by the students and even professionals willing to get better understanding of the ship hydrostatics in the design and performance of the vessels. The author of the volume is bringing the readers from the first fundamental principles through both basic and applied theory of hydrostatics and ship stability, and he is also introducing the modern and newly presented mathematical techniques used for hydrostatic modeling and analysis. Numerous real-life examples have been included in the book to show the practical application of the hydrostatics and explain the theory and calculations; they will also help to demonstrate the effects of the shifting weights and displacements of the central gravity on the overall stability of the vessel. The content of the book addresses all recent developments in naval architecture, for example the Matthieu effect relating to the parametric resonance, influence of the ship lines, effects of nonlinear ship motions on stability, and the international regulations governing the stability of the small vessels with the extensive use contemporary computer techniques...

ship collision damage
 

   The main declared purpose of the author of the present thesis was to develop a procedure for the analysis of the ship collisions that would address all ship types and all possible damage scenarios. Among the main aspects covered within this work are the deterministic analysis and numerical Monte Carlo-based simulation of collisions to estimate the distributions for the damage expected to occur to the struck vessel and released energy, damage statistics analysis, and new proposal for the regulations governing the damage stability applying the probabilistic approach. Three new programs have been developed and introduced for the deterministic analysis, addressing the damage to the struck vessel, striking vessel and to both of them. The author has conducted a thorough analysis of the information contained in the database of the damage from collisions occurred in the past with respect to the type of collision and relation between vessels plus the parameters of damage and the main particulars. Chapters of the thesis cover the risk analysis, external dynamics and internal mechanics of ship collisions, deterministic and probabilistic analysis of collisions, damage statistics, comparison of the results obtained in the course of the observations and simulations, stability regulations, input for the collision programs, damage relations and other relevant information.

introduction to naval architecture

   A truly timeless textbook on naval architecture providing all interested people, and not necessarily professionals. with a required introduction to this interesting discipline - in fact, the way in which the material has been presented in this book makes it ideal even to the newcomers having limited knowledge of this subject. Eric Tupper, the author of this brilliant and world popular title, made a remarkable attempt to make a book equally useful to all categories of readers, giving them a very clear yet quite concise introduction. We all understand that the basic characteristics of the design and the way they impact the behavior of the ship at sea are of critical importance to the people. Of course, the practicing naval engineers must have a very deep and thorough understanding of all technical principles involves; however, the pro's supporting naval architects in design and production of the ships will also need some good grasp of the fundamentals. Marine engineers should recognize the exact degree to which their everyday working activities are influenced and bounded by the basic principles of naval architecture. The present publication covers the basic of the naval architecture and will therefore present a great practical interest to students and specialists in the fields of ship construction and marine engineering.

basic ship theory
   Over the past several decades there have been many significant changes in the maritime industry. Vessels of today are much bigger and their speeds are higher, their manning has been reduced; there are now so many types of ships including newly introduced ones, for example hovercrafts; ferries carry much more passengers and vehicles than in the past. And even taking into account that people may now perform much quicker and much more accurate assessment of the ship stability and strength of the ships' hull together with the maneuvering and powering of the ships and their motions at sea by means of the very complex and specialized computer software, the basic concepts of the naval architecture remain unchanged and are valid as ever. Some very rapid technical advances have been made in the field of the ship design, ship construction and ship operation, and many of them directly relate to the effectiveness. This is mainly owing to the higher efficiency and lower costs of the computers and proliferation of the available information. This book of ship's theory consists of two separate volumes providing readers with the coverage of all important aspects, including trim and floatation, ship stability, potential hazards and protection of the ship, hull girder, structural design of the ship and associated analysis, launching of the ships and their docking, powering, seakeeping and maneuverability, major design features and so many others.

Practical Ship Hydrodynamics

   This book starts with the five chapters providing readers with the general introduction to the hydrodynamics of the ship's hull. It is assumes that the readers have a solid knowledge of the general fluid dynamics. Though there are numerous books available on the market, it should be underlines that naval architects must concentrate on selected aspects of their field and try to cover the materials exactly suited to their practical needs, and this is a strategy supported by the author of this title. The first of the chapters gives an introduction to the CFD while the other four chapters are covering the areas of propeller flows, hull resistance and ship propulsion, seakeeping and maneuvering of the ship. This is the recommended sequence of teaching. The aim of these chapters is to find a balance for the practical naval engineers between the facts and minimum of formulas. However,  some formulas are still there included to help people engaged in computations or programming tasks. People having only practical interest may easily ship these passages. The final two chapters of the book are involving a bit more extensive formula work and are therefore more specialized; they have been reserved mainly for the post-graduates and will assist them in gaining the proper understanding and development of the boundary element codes...
