This perfectly arranged guidebook was written to provide the readers with the reference source covering the design calculations of the offshore platforms, which are the main marine structures in the offshore oil-and-gas industry, with the particular attention paid to all critical issues which the designers usually face.

It also provides readers with the descriptions of the simple design instruments based on the popular international codes by ISO, API plus other commonly applied standards and practices used in marine structure design. Coordination among the different engineering disciplines and managing the engineering phase are also discussed in the book.

A separate chapter of the book has been devoted to the modeling by means of the PDMS and SACS software. The content includes more than three hundred of representative calculations related to the marine design and structural analysis.

The real life case studies and worked examples age given providing some additional information and supplementing the main text. Numerous practically useful checklists, tables and design schemes have also been provided for easy reference.

One of the most popular publications devoted to the structural design of marine structures. It may definitely be treated as a practically useful and very wide-ranging guidebook to the structural design and analysis. The author has managed to describe in detail the established principles of structural engineering that are in common use today together with their practical applications to the design of the various marine and offshore facilities.

The content has been arranged in five major sections covering the fundamental principles of structural design, fatigue, fracture and strength of the structures, reliability of the structures and risk assessment principles. the book is expected to provide all required technical knowledge for the design and assessment of the marine and offshore structures.

Needless to say that this publication is a sort of must-read for all persons dealing with the design of the marine structures and associated analysis. The way the information is presented and theory is explained by the author makes the content understandable for all categories of readers, from students of marine design to the professionals engaged in the real design and analysis activities.

The content of the publication was prepared to guide the practicing naval architects and students of naval architecture from the original theoretical principles of control surface operation up to the use of the various empirical and experimental data as well as the applied CFD modeling of the ship rudders and control surfaces.

The methods that are commonly applied to the control surface design have been described in this publication in detail and their application to the particular design cases has been clearly explained. All of the design procedures covered have been supplemented with numerous informative working examples. In fact, this is the only publication available today on the subject, and it will provide readers with the valuable technical information related to the theoretical and practical design which will be particularly useful to the engineers and designers.

The text of the volume has been accompanied with the online database of the information obtained in the course of the experiments. Please have a close look in this book especially if you are engaged in the design of marine rudders or planning to get involved in the design and engineering activities.

The FEM is considered one of the best numerical methods used to solve the differential equations describing many various engineering problems. This new publication is covering the fundamental theory of the final element method including appendices on each program. The authors have introduced the concepts of this method enabling engineers to use it efficiently and also to properly interpret the obtained results.

They will learn all finite elements including one, two and three dimensional elements. The book is written excellently; the readers will definitely enjoy the examples provided in the book and illustrating the concepts. The book has been found to be among the best available resources to learn the FEM, suitable for the graduate and undergraduate levels.

The content is perfectly organized and procedures are well explained and illustrated. Some of the relevant programs including MATLAB and ANSYS have also been covered and provided with detailed explanations. This is highly recommended volume to the people willing to have a clear idea about the FEM and its applications and understand the fundamentals of this method to be able to apply it.

Nowadays HPMVs, i.e. high performance marine vehicles are ranging from the fast ferries of high-speed navy crafts. In the list of contemporary HPMVs there are hydroplanes and powerboats, hovercrafts, hydrofoils and other vehicles.

The present publication is addressing the main technical concepts of these vehicles, discussing the historical background and design features plus all services that have proven successful; moreover, it also touches some of the concepts that were not too successful.

Some particular attention has been paid by the author to the aero-marine interface technology, explanation of the historical developments oh high power vehicles, and the discussion of the different types of vehicles including pleasure and racing crafts, ferries, military missions etc.

The full range of HPMV concepts has been covered. In short, this is an ideal source of information to naval architects and marine engineers, both students and practicing pro's, and not only to them - the way information is presented makes it readable and understandable even to the people without extensive experience in the field.

The UMV, standing for the unmanned marine vehicles, is a collective term which is commonly used for describing the autonomous vehicles operating under the surface of the water, ROVs, i.e. remotely operated vehicles, unmanned surface crafts and semi-submersibles.

In fact, the content of the present volume continues to familiarize readers with the advances in UMV, the process commenced within the original publication by these authors coming under the title Advances in Unmanned Marine Vehicles, published about ten years back.

Nowadays, there is quite considerable interest in these vehicles shown by the military, scientific and even civilian communities planning to undertake different missions while being autonomous or working together with some other vehicle.

This volume addresses many important topics, for instance the navigation guidance and controlling the UMVs etc. Recommended to the people with professional interest in the subject, willing to be in line with all latest developments in the field.

This book should definitely be recommended to the beginners studying ship dynamics as well as to many practicing ship designers who are in doubt about the fundamentals of ship dynamics. The author of the volume has used very simple language when explaining the basics of the subject in order to make the complex nature of vessel behaviors easily understood by the people without serious theoretical knowledge and experience.

The text of the book has been supplemented with many practical calculations. The book may actually be used even by the people having no idea about the ship dynamics - anyone can start learning using this volume and get to quite serious level. The formulas that have been given for the vessel motion responses under the various conditions of the sea have been found to be very authentic and matching to the results commonly obtained using the expensive computer software...
