Marine Rudders and Control Surfaces guides naval architects from the first principles of the physics of control surface operation, to the use of experimental and empirical data and applied computational fluid dynamic modelling of rudders and control surfaces.
The empirical and theoretical methods applied to control surface design are described in depth and their use explained through application to particular cases. The design procedures are complemented with a number of worked practical examples of rudder and control surface design.
• The only text dedicated to marine control surface design
• Provides experimental, theoretical and applied design information valuable for practising engineers, designers and students
• Accompanied by an online extensive experimental database together with software for theoretical
predictions and design development

STEPHEN R. TURNOCK is Professor of Maritime Fluid Dynamics at the University of Southampton. He teaches Masters modules in Ship Resistance and Propulsion and Marine Renewables. His research encompasses both experimental, theoretical and simulation work in the areas of decarbonisation of shipping through improved energy efficiency of shipping, future fuels and maritime autonomy. He works extensively in marine renewables devices, underwater systems, propulsors and control surfaces. The Performance Sports Engineering Lab he led at Southampton was awarded the Queen’s Anniversary award for Higher Education in 2012. He acts as a consultant to industry and was on committees of the ITTC and International Ship and Offshore Structures Congress (ISSC). Professor Turnock is the co-author of Ship Resistance and Propulsion (2017).
