    This 12-chapter book sets out to provide useful information covering many areas including ship types, describing the majority of vessels, large and small, several types are illustrated by diagrams with salient features clearly marked. The author also defines a ship and its parts, introduces the terminology used, rules and regulations and tonnage definitions. Methods used in calculating the areas and volumes of ships’ hulls are next explained and worked examples. An important feature throughout the book’s chapters — are given making, each calculation easy to follow. Such calculations form a necessary part of following chapters which have the self-explanatory headings as: Buoyancy, Stability and Trim; Ships and the Sea; Structural Strength; and Resistance. The latter chapter also features the use of model testing and its relationship to full scale ships. The book then moves on to the subjects of Propellers and Propulsion; Manoeuvring and Motion Control; and Vibration, each of which is described from fi rst principles through to the various formulas used in the necessary calculations relating to the appropriate subject heading. The book closes with a chapter on Ship Design, which, in the words of the authors ‘…is not a static process, but one which is evolving constantly to meet new frontiers created by technological developments and market demands.
