The empirical and theoretical methods applied to control surface design are described in depth and their use explained through application to particular cases. The design procedures are complemented with a number of worked practical examples of rudder and control surface design.
. The only text dedicated to marine control surface design
. Provides experimental, theoretical and applied design information valuable for practising engineers, designers and students
. Accompanied by an online extensive experimental database together with software for theoretical
predictions and design development
