Review

'This book has everything a good textbook should have ... Ship Stability is an invaluable reference' SEAWAYS, 2000 '... a useful book for both seafarer and student alike, it covers the basics of the subject matter. The text is comprehensive with clear illustrations.' Nicola Pryce-Roberts, Programme Leader, Liverpool John Moores University, 2002 'Valuable for marine engineers studying for certificates of competency as well as students. It is recommended for its clarity of explanation and breadth of coverage.' MER (Institute of Marine Engineers), 2000 'Ship Stability for Masters and Mates is recommended reading for all deck officers' The Marine Observer, 2000 "...thoroughly recommended to masters, mates and engineer officers preparing for their SQA/MCA written and oral examinations." - The Naval Architect, 2006

From the Back Cover

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 the merchant marine or Navy.

The sixth 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. With a generous provision of worked examples and exercise questions to assist masters, mates and engineering officers with written and oral examinations.

Revised throughout with twelve new chapters:

• Floodable and permissible length curves
• Icing allowances – effects on trim and stability
• Tabular and assigned freeboard values
• Load lines and freeboard marks
• Effects of side winds on stability – wind levers and wind moments
• Air draft considerations
• Synchronous rolling and parametric rolling of ships - associated dangers
• Recent SQA/MCA examination questions
• Updated glossary of ship terms and nomenclature

Ship Stability for Masters and Mates is required reading for seafarers and students alike and an important resource for naval architecture students, shipboard officers and shore-based staff, including dry-dock personnel, ship-designers, ship surveyors, port authorities, marine consultants and superintendents.|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 the merchant marine or Navy.
