During the twenty years that have elapsed since publication of the previous edition of this book, there have been remarkable advances in the art, science and practice of the design and construction of ships and other floating structures. In that edition, the increasing use of high speed computers was recognized and computational methods were incorporated or acknowledged in the individual chapters rather than being presented in a separate chapter. Today, the electronic computer is one of the most important tools in any engineering environment and the laptop computer has taken the place of the ubiquitous slide rule of an earlier generation of engineers. Advanced concepts and methods that were only being developed or introduced then are a part of common engineering practice today. These include finite element analysis, computational fluid dynamics, random process methods, numerical modeling of the hull form and components, with some or all of these merged into integrated design and manufacturing systems. Collectively, these give the naval architect unprecedented power and flexibility to explore innovation in concept and design of marine systems. In order to fully utilize these tools, the READ MORE >
