Muckle's Naval Architecture, Second Edition is concerned with problems related to resistance, propulsion, and vibration in naval architecture. Topics include ship calculations, stability and trim, ship motions, and structural strength. This book also gives a brief reference to ship design. This text is comprised of 13 chapters; the first of which provides an overview of the function of the ship, its layout, and various types. The next chapter explains definitions, principal dimensions, and form coefficients, along with classification societies and governmental authorities that regulate ship design, construction, and safety. Various calculations that are performed to determine the form of a ship are the subject of the next chapter. Attention then turns to buoyancy, stability, and trim, along with sea and ship motions, the problem of structural strength, vibration, and resistance. The influence of rudders and control on ship movement is also discussed. Finally, this book describes the methods for determining the amount of power required to propel a ship. This book is intended primarily for practicing naval architects, marine engineers, deck officers, and all students of naval architecture.
