[yme2789] The Dynamics of Marine Craft: Maneuvering and Seakeeping-Lewandowski(2003)

This book is intended to serve as an upper-level undergraduate or introductory-level graduate text for students of Naval Architecture or related fields. It is not a book about design of marine vehicles, but rather addresses the question, “How can we predict the dynamic performance of the vehicle, given its physical characteristics?” Thus the material should be of interest to present and future designers, since evaluation of maneuverabilitylcoursekeeping ability and performance in waves is of course an essential (though sometimes neglected) part of the infamous “design spiral” in naval architecture. In addition, the material should also be useful to those interested in simulation of vehicle performance, for training purposes or to conduct engineering studies. The emphasis is on hydrodynamics, since these are the predominant external forces acting on marine vehicles. Knowledge of differential and integral calculus, elementary differential equations, and complex numbers is presumed, as is familiarity with basic fluid mechanics and potential flow theory.
The treatment is not intended to be highly mathematical or theoretical; an outline of the theory is given but the emphasis is on exposition of practically useful results. To this end an attempt has been made to present results in the form of equations
(“curve fits”) rather than plots that do not lend themselves to automatic computation. Several fairly detailed worked examples are included.
