SHIP DESCRIPTION — DESCRIPTION DU NAVIRE
|D O W N L O A D|
This is a large and very useful collection of chosen maritime terminology and popular acronyms/abbreviations presented in both English and French languages; the content of this book is supplemented with the numerous photographs, informative sketches and images. It will be very practical for everyone involved in shipping and shipbuilding or repair.
The present publication is deservedly treated as maybe the best among the works available today for the accurate technical translation from English to French since it is covering the vast majority of the vessel's mechanisms, gears, parts of the hull and relevant working processes. The volume opens with a page demonstrating the main dimensions of the vessels and associated terms in two languages, followed by the part intended to depict the general arrangement plus the structure of the cargo ships.
The next chapters have been dedicated to the development of the superstructures of cargo vessels, ship motion, design issues, tonnage, load lines, ship stability, freeboard and hull subdivision, all stages of shipbuilding starting from the preparation for bidding through shipyard trades and production facilities and up to the yard equipment used, welding matters and other important ship construction techniques. Long story short, it contains absolutely all terminology one will require to deal with any vessel.
