This volume considers hydrodynamic aspects of the three main categories of high-speed marine vehicles, i.e. vessels supported by either the submerged hull, an air cushion, or foils. (Submerged-hull-supported vessels include planing and semi-displacement vessels.) The wave environment, resistance, propulsion, seakeeping, sea loads, and maneuvering are extensively covered based on rational and simplified methods. Links to automatic control and structural mechanics are emphasized. A detailed description of waterjet propulsion is given, and the effect of water depth on wash, resistance, sinkage, and trim is discussed. The book contains many illustrations, examples, and exercises.

Book Description:

Hydrodynamics of High-Speed Marine Vehicles discusses how ocean waves and the water flow affect high-speed vessels and how this depends on the vessel type and forward speed. There is a clear difference between the behavior of a catamaran, a hydrofoil boat and an air-cushion supported vessel. All aspects of marine hydrodynamics are covered with an emphasis on rational and simplified methods. The book contains many illustrations, examples and exercises. Knowledge of water flow is important in the structural design and is essential in the construction of an automatic motion control system.

About the Author:

Odd M. Faltinsen received his Ph.D. in naval architecture and marine engineering from the University of Michigan in 1971. He has been a Professor of Marine Hydrodynamics at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) since 1974. Dr Faltinsen has experience with a broad spectrum of hydrodynamically related problems for ships and sea structures, including hydroelastic problems and slamming. Faltinsen is a member of the Norwegian Academy for Technical Sciences, the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, the Royal Norwegian Society of Sciences and Letters and a foreign member of the US National Academy of Engineering. He has held visiting professorships three times at MIT and at the Research Institute of Applied Mechanics, Kyushu University. His publications include more than 200 scientific papers, and books including Sea Loads on Ships and Offshore Structures (Cambridge University Press, 1990) and Sloshing, with A. Timohka (Cambridge University Press, 2010).
