And this is the third and the last volume of the Principles of Naval Architecture set. This part is dedicated to the Motions in Waves and Controllability. Among the issues addressed there are ocean waves, ship's responses to regular waves and derived responses, control of ships motions, various design aspects, assessing vessel seaway performance, the control loop, and basic linear and non-linear equations of motion, analysis of coursekeeping, control-fixed stability and turning ability, model tests, theoretical prediction of hydrodynamic coefficients and systems identification, accelerating, stopping, backing, automated control systems, environment effects, ship waterway interactions, and many more.
