Here is a re-print of the classic book on the theoretical foundations of naval architecture. This book will be of great interest for the naval architects and other workers of the shipbuilding facilities and drawing offices because it will offer them an excellent text clearly explaining all associated calculations, The author of this volume is also expecting that his work may serve as a standard textbook covering the whole theoretical portion of the exam in naval architecture. Unfortunately, it was not possible to include literally all subjects, for example such subjects as the advanced stability work, vibration, rolling of the vessels and some others. However, the author has really made his best to cover as many of the important topics of naval architecture as possible, and to provide readers with a huge amount of interesting and understandable theoretical information on the naval architecture basics. One of the special features of this title is the number of practical examples presented in the text of the book as well as at the end of the chapters. These subject are aimed to help students test their grasps of processes and processes covered within the paper. Most of the examples have been taken from the real calculations of different drawing offices and this makes them practically useful.
