Ship Stability for Masters and Mates, Fifth Edition

Buy
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:

. Floodable and permissible length curves
. Icing allowances - effects on trim and stability
. Tabular and assigned freeboard values
. Load lines and freeboard marks
. Effects of side winds on stability - wind levers and wind moments
. Air draft considerations
. Synchronous rolling and parametric rolling of ships - associated dangers
. Recent SQA/MCA examination questions
. Updated glossary of ship terms and nomenclature

Ship Stability for Masters and Mates is required reading for seafarers and students alike and an important resource for naval architecture students, shipboard officers and shore-based staff, including dry-dock personnel, ship-designers, ship surveyors, port authorities, marine consultants and superintendents.
