Ship Stability for Masters and Mates
Understanding ship stability - the ability of a ship to return to an initial state after disturbing forces and moments - is critical for all maritime students and professionals studying for a deck or engineering certificate of competency, or seeking promotion to a higher rank within marine or naval companies or institutions. The seventh edition of this classic text provides a comprehensive introduction to all aspects of ship stability and ship strength, squat, interaction and trim, materials stresses and forces.
Stability is a difficult concept to define. The idea of a stable character is readily grasped, although it is harder to put into words. The same applies to the notion of a stable ship, as stability is an intangible and complex entity. Nevertheless, it plays an extremely important role in navigation. If a ship is unstable, there is immediate danger to ship, crew, passengers and the environment. Therefore, stability regulations have been established for all types of ships.
This indispensible guide to ship stability covers essential topics such as flotation and buoyancy, small angle, large angle and longitudinal stability, water density effects, bilging, ship resistance, and advanced hydrostatics. Each chapter has a comprehensive list of aims and objectives at the start of the topic, followed by a check-list at the end of the topic for students to ensure that they have developed all the relevant skills before moving onto the next topic area.
The tenth edition of this popular guide has been completely revised and expanded to take account of the latest changes to maritime regulations and procedures.
