Written by an award-winning naval architecture author and former vice-president of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA), the fifth edition of Introduction to Naval Architecture has been fully updated to take in advances in the field and is ideal both for those approaching the subject for the first time and those looking to update or refresh their knowledge on areas outside of their direct expertise. This book provides a broad appreciation of the science and art of naval architecture, explaining the subject in physical rather than in mathematical terms. While covering basic principles, such as hull geometry, propulsion, and stability, the book also addresses contemporary topics, such as computer aided design and computer aided manufacture (CAD/CAM). The new edition reflects the continuing developments in technology, changes in international regulations and recent research. Knowledge of the fundamentals of naval architecture is essential not only for newcomers to the field but also the wealth of non-naval architects working in the marine area, including marine engineers, marine surveyors and ship crews. This book provides the most well-known and trusted introduction to the topic, offering a clear and concise take on the basics of this broad field. Praise for previous edition "...a clear and concise introduction to the subject, giving a good grasp of the basics of naval architecture." — Maritime Journal "...my go-to book for understanding the general principles of naval architecture. The book is well-written and easy to understand." — Amazon.com reviewer Provides a perfect introduction to naval architecture for newcomers to the field and a compact overview for related marine professionals needing a working knowledge of the area Updated to cover key developments including double-hulled tankers and the increased use of computational methods and modeling in ship design Draws on the experience of renowned naval architecture author Eric Tupper to provide extensive scope and authoritative detail, all in an accessible and approachable style

The fundamental characteristics of a ship's design, and how they affect its behaviour at sea are of crucial importance to many people involved in the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of all marine vessels. Naval architects and those working in ship design need to understand these principles in depth. Marine engineers must likewise recognise the degree to which their activities are influenced and bounded by these principles. Naval architecture is an engineering discipline dealing with the engineering design process, shipbuilding, maintenance, and operation of marine vessels and structures. Naval architecture involves basic and applied research, design, development, design evaluation and calculations during all stages of the life of a marine vehicle. Preliminary design of the vessel, its detailed design, construction, trials, operation and maintenance, launching and dry-docking are the main activities involved. Knowledge of the fundamentals of naval architecture is essential not only for newcomers to the field but also the wealth of non-naval architects working in the marine area, including marine engineers, marine surveyors and ship crews. The book Introduction to Naval Architecture provides the most well-known and trusted introduction to the topic, offering a clear and concise take on the basics of this broad field. This book is ideal both for those approaching the subject for the first time and those looking to update or refresh their knowledge on areas outside of their direct expertise.

This textbook provides readers with an understanding of the basics of ship stability as it has been enacted in international law. The assessment of ship stability has evolved considerably since the first SOLAS convention after the sinking of the HMS Titanic, and this book enables readers to familiarise themselves with the most up-to-date modern day methodology, as well as looking ahead to the effects on ship design over the next fifty years. The author not only explains the methodology of probabilistic ship damage as required by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), but also details the new requirements to assess certain sizes and classes of ships to the seven second-generation ship stability requirements. Many textbooks that are currently used by undergraduates focus on the geometric-centric deterministic approach to the assessment of ship stability, whereas this book also includes material on the classes of ships that are now required to have probabilistic ship damage assessment, as has only recently been agreed by the IMO. Basic Naval Architecture: Ship Stability contains up-to-date information, making it ideal for university students studying ocean or marine engineering, as well as being of interest to students on naval architecture and ship science courses. Highly illustrated and including chapter studies for ease of learning, the book is an ideal one-volume textbook for students.

Applied Naval Architecture is intended for undergraduate students of many of the disciplines in maritime affairs, including marine engineering, marine transportation, nautical science, shipbuilding or ship production (shipyard apprentice schools), marine electrical engineering, meteorology, and oceanography. It could be used as an introduction to naval architecture for technical personnel of all types already employed in shipyards, and for licensed officers as a general reference and as preparation for license upgrading examinations. In short, its purpose is to describe what a naval architect does, and how he or she does it, to all students and practitioners involved in the business of merchant ships and shipping, except for professional naval architects themselves. Students preparing for a degree in naval architecture would also find the book useful as an introduction to their profession.
