This work by Edward Attwood is an expansion of his Textbook of Theoretical Naval Architecture which was published more than a century ago. The content of this book has been prepared with the intention of the author to provide all readers, including students of naval architecture and professional draughtsmen with a good and useful textbook explaining the calculations they are continually involved in every day. The book is expected to form a textbook for the different exams held in naval architecture. Since this subject is constantly growing, it is really impossible to confine all relevant information in a single volume; however, the author has tried to demonstrate how exactly the ship calculations could be carried out in the intelligent manner giving students a perfect fundamental knowledge on which the further progress in the field can be achieved easier. One of the special features of this volume is a huge number of the examples provided in the text as well as at the end-chapters, and this feature has been found to be greatly appreciated by the readers, and students, in particular. The author of this classic and really brilliant textbook hopes that his work would be found practical and useful to that class of readers which is willing to obtain a good working knowledge of the basic principles of naval architecture.
