The content of this volume was written based on the decades of experience of the author as well as his years of lecturing in the university. Since the subject lectures were left unpublished for so many years, the decision was made by the author to compile this perfect book and provide all information and knowledge needed by and useful to the students, in a single and comprehensive volume.
All of the calculations are duly explained in a way making them understandable to the students at all levels. The content is divided in three parts, the first one dealing with the areas, volume, and center of gravity, giving some very general considerations on the subject. The second part of the book is devoted entirely to the ship calculations. The third part addresses the strength of ships together with all associated calculations.
As you can see, the publication was released more that a century back. However, it is still recommended to the students, due to the fact that the theoretical basics of the ship design and construction have not changed. And, the explanations given by the author in his work are somewhat more clear and easier to follow, understand, and apply than the ones in the books being released today.
