The coursekeeping and maneuvering requirements for a ship are governed by international maritime law. In assessing and predicting the coursekeeping and maneuvering capabilities of the ship, knowledge is required of the rudder forces necessary to keep a course or facilitate a maneuver. Marine Rudders, Hydrofoils and Control Surfaces: Principles, Data, Design and Applications, Second Edition includes up-to-date data and rudder design techniques which enable the rudder forces to be estimated, together with any interactions due to the hull and propeller. The professional will also face the need to design control surfaces for motion control, such as roll and pitch, for surface vessels and submersibles, and the book contains the necessary techniques and data to carry out these tasks. The new edition also describes the design and application of hydrofoils including shape adaptive design, and their applications including hydrofoil craft, yachts and kite surfing hydrofoils.
This book is for practicing naval architects and marine engineers, small craft designers, yacht designers, hydrodynamicists, undergraduate and postgraduate students of naval architecture, ship science and the broader engineering sciences, as well as the broader engineering community involved in development of marine craft that rely on the generation of ‘lift’ such as control engineers and aerodynamicists.

ANTHONY F. MOLLAND is Emeritus Professor of Ship Design at the University of Southampton. Professor Molland has extensively researched and published papers on ship design and ship hydrodynamics including ship rudders and control surfaces, propellers and ship resistance components. He also acts as a consultant to industry in these subject areas and has gained international recognition through presentations at conferences and membership of committees of the International Towing Tank Conference (ITTC). Professor Molland is the co-author of Ship Resistance and Propulsion (2017) and editor of the Maritime Engineering Reference Book (2008).

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).
