Book Description

Fundamentals of Ship Hydrodynamics (PDF) is designed as a textbook for undergraduate education in ship resistance and propulsion. The ebook provides connections between basic training in calculus and fluid mechanics and the application of hydrodynamics in daily ship design practice. Based on a foundation in fluid mechanics; the origin; use; and limitations of experimental and computational procedures for resistance and propulsion estimates are explained.

The ebook is subdivided into 60 chapters; providing background material for individual lectures.  The unabridged treatment of equations and the extensive use of figures and examples enable students to study details at their own pace.

Key features:

•             Around 250 figures and tables.

•             Subdivided into 60 succinct chapters.

•             In-depth coverage of material enables self-study.

•             Covers the range from basic fluid mechanics to applied ship hydrodynamics.

Fundamentals of Ship Hydrodynamics: Fluid Mechanics; Ship Resistance and Propulsion is essential reading for students and staff of naval architecture; ocean engineering; and applied physics. The ebook is also useful for practicing naval architects and engineers who wish to brush up on the basics; prepare for a licensing exam; or expand their knowledge.
