The types, sizes, functions and arrangement of the modern merchant fleet vessels vary considerably. Among these vessels there are passenger vessels, cargo vessels and vessels of specialized types suitable for the particular assignments. This is how the first chapter of this book starts – here the reader will get the basic information about the types of ships and terminology used.
Then, the author proceeds to the explanation of the stresses normally encountered in the different ship structures as well as the materials used for ship construction and welding aspects. Each part of the ship’s hull has been addressed in detail, from the bottom and up to the main deck and superstructure. There is a separate chapter in this volume solely devoted to the freeboard and tonnage, including freeboard assignment, the major provisions of the Tonnage convention and all relevant rules and regulations that shall be taken into consideration when developing the design of any ship.
The author has also dealt with the shipboard lifesaving appliances and arrangements, structural fire protection, ship classification, hull vibration, ship dynamics, insulation of the ships, prevention of corrosion to the hull including cathodic protection, painting, anti-fouling, drydocking activities and many other areas.
