THE ELEMENTS OF BOAT STRENGTH FOR BUILDERS, DESIGNERS AND OWNERS
|D O W N L O A D|
First of all, we want to emphasize that the present publication was not written specifically for the professionals of boatbuilding who are looking for the very latest arcane developments in the field of structural engineering; we would better say that it was prepared and released for the average boatbuilders (amateur or professional) - mechanics, marine surveyors, serious yachtsmen, and naval architects will also find it useful. It is intended to serve as the very easy-to-use source of information, dealing with the important calculations one has to perform in order to determine the final reliable scantlings for the boat.
It definitely makes sense to spend some tome studying the new data tables and graphics; however, do not worry - all the calculations contained within this book can be quite easily performed by any person having some basic understanding of math and every formula can be solved using an inexpensive, student-grade scientific calculator. It shall be noted that this book was the first one to include the structural strength assessment method in the context of modern marine environment.
It is the very definitive reference book covering nearly every aspect of boat strength; it is also considered one of the best layman's guides available today. We have another boatbuilding book by Dave Gerr here.
