Synopsis:

This book forms part of a two-volume guide to the fundamental principles governing how and why a sailing yacht behaves in the way it does including an understanding of the physics involved and mathematical modelling.

From the Back Cover:

Sailing craft form an expanding sector of the marine industry and events such as the America's Cup and the Volvo Ocean Race (formerly the Whitbread Round-the-World Race) are receiving increased public interest. The science and technology associated with the design, construction and operation of sailing yachts is developing at a rapid rate. New design tools based on computational techniques are emerging and the fabrication and construction materials technology is advancing very quickly.

This two volume set, Sailing Yacht Design: Theory and Sailing Yacht Design: Practice, provides a guide to the fundamental principles governing how and why a sailing yacht behaves in the way it does. It also provides an understanding of the physics involved and the mathematical modelling of yachts, The material was compiled for a WEGEMT School held at the University of Southampton in September 1998. WEGEMT is an association of European universities in marine technology.

Sailing Yacht Design: Practice
  • Contains a series of chapters by different designers on their experiences of translating scientific principles into reality.
  • Covers the practical design of hulls and appendages such as keels and sails.
  • Describes the practical design of the structure of a high performance hull made from advanced composites.
  • Looks at production techniques and boatyard facilities.
  • Puts a practical perspective on handicap rules, statutory and regulatory constraints and safety considerations.

The three editors are all at the University of Southampton, which has pioneered the education of ship science students at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels with specializations in yacht and small craft design.

The contributors are all internationally renowned authorities. They work in the fields of sailing yacht design, construction, design consultancy, classification societies, yachting associations. materials supply research establishments and universities.
