This is a world popular and truly indispensable, one of the best available guidebooks on ship stability. The authors of the book managed to cover, in a single volume, all important stability topics, including but not limited to the buoyancy and flotation of the ship, stability at small and large angles of inclination, longitudinal stability, effects caused by the density of the water, bilging and hull resistance, etc.
There is a separate chapter devoted to the advanced hydrostatics. There is a list of objectives accompanying each of the chapters, located at the beginning. It is followed with the check sheet at the end of each topic – these should be used by the students as a supplemental tool to track the learning process and ensure that the relevant skills have been developed prior to moving to the next one.
There are more than 170 working examples included in the book, each of them is provided with the thoroughly explained solutions so that the students can work through them, building up their knowledge of the topic and developing their skills. Subject examples vary in difficulty and base on a hypothetical vessel – the readers are given extracts from the typical ship data book replicating the data books on board real vessels.
