When working on this volume, the author was pretty aware of the huge scope of the contemporary vessel design as well as the difficulties faced by the designers trying to place the different elements in the correct perspective. The significant increase in the world tonnage has eventually resulted in the progress with this task, and that is why the need for the food review appeared.
Apart from the discussions on the newly introduced design techniques, the content of the present title also focuses on the essential theory of the naval architecture, without which it would bake little to no sense to proceed any further. Every effort has been made to present the material in the way that would make it understandable to the students; it should not be, however, treated as the mere textbook of naval architecture.
The real intention of the author was to introduce students to the general scope of the most important areas of ship design. The volume is therefore highly recommended to the students of the naval architecture and ship design faculties; however it will be of practical use even to the specialists willing to improve or refresh their knowledge of the subject, expanding it to cover some new areas.
