This volume considers hydrodynamic aspects of the three main categories of high-speed marine vehicles, i.e. vessels supported by either the submerged hull, an air cushion, or foils. (Submerged-hull-supported vessels include planing and semi-displacement vessels.) The wave environment, resistance, propulsion, seakeeping, sea loads, and maneuvering are extensively covered based on rational and simplified methods. Links to automatic control and structural mechanics are emphasized. A detailed description of waterjet propulsion is given, and the effect of water depth on wash, resistance, sinkage, and trim is discussed. The book contains many illustrations, examples, and exercises.Read more
- Covers all aspects of marine hydrodynamics and all types of high-speed vessels
- Starts with basic fluid dynamics and links this to practical issues
- Simplified and rational explanations of the fluid behavior by use of many illustrations, examples and exercises
Reviews & endorsements
"excellent coverage of special topics that may not be included in traditional marine hydrodynamics textbooks. The book is an excellent technical resource for information about high-speed vessels, since as it provides a summary of relevant recent research and references. I highly recommend this book to naval architects and marine and coastal engineers. This book is a valuable desktop reference for planners, designers, and decision makers involved in various issues concerning high-speed vessels."
