This book was written to address the important aspects of the hydrostatics and stability of the vessels and other marine facilities. We all know that this is one of the most critical areas of the naval architecture. The content covers the essential concepts under assumption that the readers have little to no prior technical knowledge. All of the topics covered in the volume have been dealt with in a very methodical manner, being explained step by step to achieve better understanding of the subject.
The book can be used by the students, willing to enhance their knowledge, as a good reference tool and textbook. There are in total ten chapters in the book, opening with the introduction where the basic vessel geometry is explained and forms are defined. The second chapter covers the flotation matters including the Archimedes’ Principle, static equilibrium, stability curves etc. The next chapters are dealing with the longitudinal stability and trim of the ship, followed by the centroids and methods.
Then, two chapters address the static ship stability at small and large angles of heel. The remaining chapters are devoted to the intact stability, dynamic stability and damage stability. This is a real must-have for any naval architect, from student to the professional.
