The present compendium of files contains all technical documents presented and discussed during the Seventeenth Ship & Offshore Structures Congress held in South Korea some years ago in 2009. It consists of the proceedings of eight specialist committees dealing with the damage assessment after accidental events, fabrication technology, utilization of the ocean wind-and-wave energy, floating production systems, naval ship design, sailing yacht design, condition assessment of aged ships, impulsive pressure loading and response assessment.

The second part of the volume contains eight documents corresponding to the technical committees covering the environment, the loads,  quasi-static and dynamic response, ultimate strength, fatigue, fracture, design principles and applicable criteria, design methods. As everyone may see from the above list of the topics that have been addressed during the event, the information included in this set of technical papers is very valuable and practical so we believe that it would be very beneficial to all marine industry professionals to go through all of them to get updated with the recent scientific developments and researches, especially taking into consideration that all articles have been prepared by the world recognized industry experts.

When Japan joined the World War Two in December of 1941, the IJN - Imperial Japanese Navy - was made up of old 5500-ton light cruisers. The newest of them were three ships of Sendai class commissioned in 1925. The 10000-ton Tone and Mogami classes of cruisers had been designed secretly with 6-inch main armament in triple or 8-inch main guns in double turrets (they could be changed over), and this allowed them to be converted into heavy cruisers.

The two Tone-class and four Mogami-class ships were modified and entered the War as part of the Imperial Japanese Navy heavy cruiser force... This publication shall be treated as an excellent companion to Wayne Patton's volume on the Japanese heavy cruisers of the Second World War, offering the readers comprehensive and perfectly illustrated overview. The tonnage of the vessels addressed n the present document varies between 5500 and 1000.

Those vessels had a truly distinctive look - they were narrower and longer in comparison to their American counterparts. The cruisers were armed with the famous and deadly "Long Lace" torpedoes and were considered extremely dangerous opponents at sea. The content of the book provides an interesting and informative text summarizing the design matters and service life of each class of the Japanese light cruisers accompanies by many images and artwork...

They have established a brilliant "heavy hitter"-reputation during their action throughout the whole Second World War. The present title should supplement another publication by Wayne Patton, dedicated to the Japanese light cruisers serving in the historical period covered.
