9780750649889: Ship Hydrostatics and Stability

The hydrostatic approach to ship stability aims to balance idealized ship weight against buoyancy forces. This textbook is a complete guide to understanding ship hydrostatics in ship design and ship performance.

Adrian Biran guides readers from first principles through basic and applied hydrostatic and ship stability theory, and introduces contemporary mathematical techniques for hydrostatic modelling and analysis. Real life examples of the practical application of hydrostatics are used to explain the theory and calculations; and to illustrate the effect shifting weights and central gravity displacements have on overall ship stability.

Ship Hydrostatics and Stability covers recent developments in the field of naval architecture such as parametric resonance (also known as the Mathieu effect), the effects of non-linear motions on stability, the influence of ship lines, and new international stability regulations for small vessels. Extensive use of computer techniques is made throughout.

  • Adheres to international standards and terminology
  • Includes real life practical examples and calculations to illustrate the hydrostatic approach to ship stability

Book Description:

An essential resource for naval architects

From the Back Cover:

An essential resource for naval architects

Written for anyone taking a first course in naval architecture or ocean engineering at undergraduate or graduate level, 'Ship Hydrostatics and Stability' is a complete guide to understanding ship hydrostatics in ship design and ship performance.

The book guides readers from first principles through basic and applied hydrostatic and ship stability theory, and introduces contemporary mathematical techniques for hydrostatic modelling and analysis. Extensive use of computer techniques is made throughout, and the book is accompanied by a selection of downloadable MATLAB files.

While hydrostatic approaches to ship stability are essentially a matter of balancing idealized weight and buoyancy forces, these are complicated in practice by a wide range of factors. The book considers the practical application of hydrostatics and also covers recent developments in the field such as parametric resonance (also known as the Mathieu effect). Other key features:

* Adheres to international standards and terminology in the field
* Emphasis on computer-based techniques
* Downloadable MATLAB files for hydrostatic and stability calculations
* Examples of calculations with real-ship data

With its contemporary coverage and computer based approach, this book will be an essential resource for both students and practicing naval architects.

Dr. Adrian Biran is Adjunct Associate Professor at TECHNION, the Israel Institute of Technology, Israel
