The rapidly growing demand for the commercial activities taking place at sea has eventually resulted in the development of the vessels together with the rules commonly applicable to and governing their construction and operation. The publication deals with every single aspect of the practical ship design, handling the widest range of merchant and naval vessels with authority.
The author has provided a good coverage of the cargo and passenger vessels, dredgers, tug boats and other ships. Among the topics covered there are also concept design and hydrodynamics, detail and structural design, regulation governing the design, preparation of the technical specifications, economical and costing matters.
The content has been developed on the basis of the author's huge experience in the field of ship design and will be interesting to people involved in the ship design activities as well as to those dealing with ship construction and repair, ship operation etc. The layout is excellent - most of the things normally not covered in the naval architecture books have been addressed in this volume so this is in fact the only publication offering such a wide coverage of topics in a single volume.
