When working on the present publication, the main objective of the author was to adapt the contents for the students of naval architecture possessing a very basic knowledge of mathematics, at elementary level. That is the main reason why the book gained so much of popularity and was treated as one of the best volumes for the students of naval architecture who will find here all the information they need to conduct the general calculations, explained using commonly and easily applied rules and formulae.
Every effort was made by the author to get the main problems of stability calculations simplified, and this was done through dividing the all calculations in two groups – the calculations related to the ship hull; form and calculations related to the weight of the ship. In short, we can say that all important aspects have been covered in detail. The information contained in the pages of this classic volume is still valid and useful since it is based on the provisions of the theoretical calculations. It is highly recommended to all naval architects to have a good understanding of the underlying principles of all calculations associated with the ship design including but not limited to the ship stability.
