The fundamental characteristics of a ship's design, and how they affect its behaviour at sea are clearly of great importance to a variety of different people. Whilst naval architects need to understand these principles in depth, those supporting them in
design and production will need a good grasp of the basics. Marine engineers must likewise recognise the degree to which their activities will be influenced and bounded by these principles. This book offers a clear and concise introduction to the
subject, and will therefore be of great interest to both students and practising professionals in both fields. Written by Eric Tupper, formerly Head of Structures Research and Chief Engineer with the Admiralty Research Establishment, a member of the
Royal Corps of Naval Constructors and a Vice-President of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects, this book will no doubt prove to be without rival in its treatment of the subject.
