Practical Ship Hydrodynamics, Second Edition

Buy
Ten years after the 1st edition, it was time to update, extend and reorganize the material. The book still gives an introduction to modern ship hydrodynamics, which is in my opinion suitable for teaching at a senior undergraduate level or even at a postgraduate level. It is thus also suitable for engineers working in industry. The book assumes that the reader has a solid knowledge of general fluid dynamics. In teaching, general fluid dynamics and specific ship hydrodynamics are often mixed but I believe that universities should first teach a course in general fluid dynamics which should be mandatory to most engineering students. There are many good textbooks on the market for this purpose. Naval architects should then concentrate on the particular aspects of their field and cover material more suited to their needs. This book is organized to support such a strategy in teaching.

The first chapter covers basics of computational fluid dynamics and model tests, and Chapters 2 to 6 cover the four main areas of propeller flows, resistance and propulsion, ship seakeeping including ship vibrations, and maneuvering. Chapter 5 was added to cover ship vibrations from a hydrodynamic point, as a natural extension of rigid-body motions in waves in seakeeping. It is recommended that this sequence be followed in teaching. The book tries to find a suitable balance for practical engineers between facts and minimizing formula work. However, there are still formulae. These are intended to help those tasked with computations or programming. Readers with a practical interest may simply skip these passages. Readers with a more theoretical interest will find additional background, e.g. derivations of formulae, on the associated website.

The final two chapters of the 1st edition involved more extensive background on boundary element methods. They were intended for graduate and postgraduate teaching. Research is no longer active in these methods and more modern field methods are covered in standard textbooks. The original two chapters on boundary element theory are now still available but only as appendices to this book.
