The present book is devoted to the ships featuring hybrid hull construction. The publication was written to provide shipbuilders, ship designers and other categories of people engaged in the industry, with the latest technological developments in the field of constructing hulls from the hybrid materials.
The content of the book will tell readers about the most important differences in processing of construction materials and also about different structural behaviors - this information should be taken into consideration in order to maximize the performance of the ship.
The author has addressed the relevant engineering requirements that are normally specific to the hybrid structures fundamental to the optimization of the ship design. The content of the book is fully covering the basic aspects of methodology and techniques that are unavailable today fro any other sources; it provides the technical knowledge required to support the ship hull design and facilitate the reliability of manufacturing.
The MATLAB codes have also been dealt with to enable the engineers apply the methods that have been covered in the book easier and according to their engineering tasks. Particular focus has been made on heavy-duty applications including innovative ship design engineering solutions.
