Naval Architecture for Marine Engineers focuses on resistance, propulsion, and vibration aspects of ships. The book first discusses the functions, layouts, and types of ships and terms used. The text looks at classification societies and governmental authorities influential on the design, construction, and safety of ships. Lloyd's Register of Shipping; governmental authorities; and Inter-governmental Maritime Consultative Organization (IMCO) are noted. The book also highlights ship calculations, including trapezoidal rule, Simpson's rule, and other rules for calculation. The text discusses as well the buoyancy, stability, and trim. Conditions for equilibrium of body floating in still water; calculation of underwater volume; stability at large angle of inclination; and flooding and damaged stability are considered. The selection also underscores structural strength of ships. Static forces on a ship in still water; dynamic longitudinal strength problem; resistance of ship to buckling; and materials used in ships are noted. The text also looks at resistance, powering, vibration, and propulsion of ships. The book is a vital source of data for readers interested in naval architecture.
