Basic Ship Theory, Vol. 1

by Tupper, E. C. & K. J. Rawson

CAD $79.95

5th ed. Rawson and Tupper’s “Basic Ship Theory”, first published in 1968, is an introductory text for naval architecture students, and a reference for the more experienced designer. This edition provides a balance between theory and practice. Volume 1 discusses ship geometry and measurement in its more basic concepts, also covering safety issues, structural strength, flotation, trim and stability. Volume 2 expands on the material in Volume 1, covering the dynamics of behaviour of marine vehicles, hydrodynamics, manoeuvrability and seakeeping. It concludes with some case studies of particular ship types and a discussion of maritime design. Both volumes focus on the importance of considering the environment in design.
