Naval officers having some basic mathematical ability can easily make themselves familiar with the fundamental principles governing the design of the vessels and the most commonly used calculation methods; however, those willing to become naval constructors would require long and very patient apprenticeship of the shipyard.
The naval architecture addresses such the problems as how to make a vessel sail and carry weights, how to make the vessel stand right at sea and obey the commander, and go easily through the waves at a given speed, in fact everything connected with the construction of the vessels and prediction/calculation of their behavior at sea.
In fact, shipbuilding itself implies giving the materials of which the vessel is to be made of all the shapes, forms and dimensions, as well as strength and power characteristics required to make them fully comply with the conditions that have been already calculated by the naval architects. he naval architects, shipbuilders and marine engineers are representing three professional skills.
Their duties shall be performed successfully so that the duties of the newly built vessel may also be performed in a successful manner. All of these duties are considered essential but they do not have to be performed by three separate people... Have a look into this rare and classic book, you will not get disappointed, it is much more than a regular textbook.
