From the Author:

The Wiley book from 1994 was the first attempt to bring hydrodynamic modeling and control system design into a unified notation for modeling, simulation and control. My first book also contains state-of-the-art control design methods for ships, offshore structures and underwater vehicles up to 1994.

Instead of making a second edition of the book, I decided to write the Handbook of Marine Craft Hydrodynamics and Motion Control and merge the most important results from my previous book with recent results. The books is divided into two parts; marine craft hydrodynamics and motions control systems (guidance, navigation and control). This makes the two Wiley books complementary.

The Handbook of Marine Craft Hydrodynamics and Motion Control was published in 2011 by Wiley, both as Hardcover and Kindle editions.

Review:

This is a very good textbook for engineering students, in particular, research-oriented engineers interested in the control systems of marine vessels. Every university with an engineering program should have this publication available in their library - J. Sasiadek, Control Engineering Practice Vol. 7, 1999.

Fossen has written a very comprehensive textbook for graduate students on modelling and control of marine vehicles.  With so much detailed information about design of marine control systems compiled in this textbook in a systematic way, I am convinced that this will be widely used as a reference - C. G. Källström, Automatica Vol 32, 1996
