The engineering fundamentals of naval architecture are emphasized in this basic textbook prepared by two U.S. Naval Academy professors. The book develops such topics as ship geometry, strength, and stability, submarine hydrostatics, ship hazards and vulnerability, and ship hydrodynamics. This generously illustrated volume includes numerous example problems and suggestions for additional study. The book covers such topics as ship geometry, properties of shipbuilding materials, stability, submarine hydrostatics, propulsion systems, and maneuverability.
