The main intention of this classic volume was to treat in a very connected and consistent way, the essential theory of the ship propulsion and to provide readers, mainly students of marine engineering, with the useful and effective methods, formulas and rules to be applied when dealing with such manners. The contents of the book are prepared on the basis of the model experiments conducted by the world famous William Froude in England.
At the time of the initial release of this book, the subject experiments were considered the most effective method of investigation of the ship propulsion and ship hull resistance. Every effort was made by the author to underline the limitations of this method and the regions where it can be applied and stay reliable.
Taking into account that the physics of the ship propulsion remains unchanged and that the results of the Froude’s experiments are still considered one of the reliable methods when designing ship hulls, we would recommend it to the people interested in the naval architecture, ship design and marine engineering, especially students making their first steps in the field. Note that the powering of ships and sea trials have been covered in the separate chapters.
