Another piece of classics here. The old yet useful volume on naval architecture written by the former professor of naval architecture and marine engineering of the MIT, standing for the Massachusetts Institute of technology. The intention of the publication was to provide in a connected and maximum possible consistent manner the theoretical essentials of the naval architecture.

The author tried to stick to this approach, making the presentation of the material more direct and simple, particularly for such topics as the ship stability, ship propulsion, local and overall strength, displacement and many others. First of all, the author gave a clear statement of the computing rules and also included an informative instruction on the mechanical and graphical integration. Then, the text moves to the detailed explanation of the ship displacement and everything related to the stability of the ship, since this is considered one of the most important areas.

All fundamental information and commonly used computational methods have been covered in detail. Going through the contents of the book we can definitely say that the author managed to compile all the basics of the naval architecture in a single volume which would be equally useful to the students of naval architecture and to the practicing shipbuilders and ship designers.
