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:
