[yme0676] Practical Ship Production-Carmichael (1919)

This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project

to make the world's books discoverable online. Shipbuilding has very old engineering history. Book digitized by Google from the library of the University of California and uploaded to the Internet Archive by user tpb.This book could be one of evidence for engineering achievement on shipbuilding technology in that era.

The purpose of this book is to present in convenient form the most important general principles of ship design, with which every naval architect should be familiar, and to describe the various processes in connection with the building of ships. Its nature is intended to be practical rather than theoretical, it being assumed that the principal problem with which the reader is concerned is the quick production of seagoing vessels from plans already in existence rather than the preparation of new plans.
