The Kemp and Young series provides a general introduction to a number of subject areas in a style that will be ideally suited for those wishing to learn more. The concise presentation of the subject matter is made possible by the reduction of the work to its simplest terms. This is achieved through the omission of unnecessary mathematics or mathematical concepts, and the generous use of diagrams and illustrations. Rapid reference to the substance of each topic can be made by use of the carefully constructed index.
The third edition of 'Ship Stability: Notes and Examples' has been updated by Dr C B Barrass, who has wide experience in both industry and the academic field. The book has been thoroughly revised and expanded to be more in line with current examinations, and now covers topics such as ship squat, angle of heel whilst turning, and moments of inertia via Simpson's Rules. Also included is a diagram showing Deadweight-Moment.
Ship Stability: Notes and Examples is an invaluable tool to aid in the passing of maritime examinations.

"Ship Stability: Notes and Examples will be an invaluable text for those students studying the subject for the first time. It should also prove to be a useful reference tool to seagoing personnel and shore-based staff involved in ship handling." --Nicola Pryce-Roberts, MSc Maritime Operations Programme Leader, Liverpool John Moores University, June 2003
"By revising the classic Kemp and Young book, Dr Barass has brought to marine students valuable material in the ship stability domain... the author succeeds in transforming the old stability notebook into a very good self-study book that includes good explanations with very clear sketches, so that anyody can do it himself." --Captain Eli D Shiran, Seaways Journal, June 2002
"Those who have found (Ship Stability for Masters and Mates) helpful will also find the present publication useful. For each topic covered, Dr Barrass sets out the basic theory involved and then illustrates this with numerous worked examples." --E C Tupper, The Naval Architect, May 2001
"..an introduction to the topic covered that will be suitable and useful for both those who are newly at sea, and those whose practical experience is limited to narrow areas and wish to expand their knowledge." --Maritime Journal, March 2001
