The author of this classical work developed it with the intention to give students a sort of compact yet informative treatise that would cover all the aspects of the ship hull resistance and propulsion and that would contain all necessary formulae, tables and other data for making correct estimates. His efforts eventually resulted in the present title that gained popularity among students of naval architecture.

There are six basic chapters in this volume, starting with the general information about the hull resistance, where the essentials are explained including but not limited to the eddy and skin resistance, Froude’s and Rankine’s methods, phenomena of waves, trochoidal waves, squat and shallow water effects etc. The second chapter deals with the propellers and provides all important definitions and formulae with proper and easily understandable explanations.

After that, the author proceeds with the analysis of the mutual reactions between ship’s hull and propeller, including the thrust deduction; later, the analysis of trials is given together with the average results. Two other chapters of the publication are devoted to the power of ships and design of the ship’s propellers.
