An essential resource for naval architects Written for anyone taking a first course in naval architecture or ocean engineering at undergraduate or graduate level, 'Ship Hydrostatics and Stability' is a complete guide to understanding ship hydrostatics in ship design and ship performance. The book guides readers from first principles through basic and applied hydrostatic and ship stability theory, and introduces contemporary mathematical techniques for hydrostatic modelling and analysis. Extensive use of computer techniques is made throughout, and the book is accompanied by a selection of downloadable MATLAB files. While hydrostatic approaches to ship stability are essentially a matter of balancing idealized weight and buoyancy forces, these are complicated in practice by a wide range of factors. The book considers the practical application of hydrostatics and also covers recent developments in the field such as parametric resonance (also known as the Mathieu effect). Other key features: * Adheres to international standards and terminology in the field * Emphasis on computer-based techniques * Downloadable MATLAB files for hydrostatic and stability calculations * Examples of calculations with real-ship data With its contemporary coverage and computer based approach, this book will be an essential resource for both students and practicing naval architects.
