CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The fundamental characteristics of a ship's design, and how they affect its
behaviour at sea are of crucial importance to many people involved in the
design, construction, operation, and maintenance of all marine vessels. Naval
architects and those working in ship design need to understand these principles
in depth. Marine engineers must likewise recognise the degree to which their
activities are influenced and bounded by these principles. Finally, senior crew
- both Ship's Engineers and Commanders - need an understanding of the
principles of naval architecture in order to properly fulfil their duties. This
book offers a clear and concise introduction to the subject and is of great
value to both students and practising professionals in all of the above fields.
