Reeds Vol 4: Naval Architecture for Marine Engineers covers the theoretical, fundamental aspects of vessel design for students preparing for the Class 2 and Class 1 Marine Engineer Officer exams. It introduces the basic foundation themes within naval architecture--hydrostatics, stability, resistance, and powering--using worked examples to show how solutions should be presented for an exam. The topics are presented as a typical teaching module, to aid the use of the book by lecturers as a compliment to a course.
This updated edition contains text and figures in line with modern practice, including many of the figures as 3D diagrams, and a new section on computer software for naval architecture. Naval Architecture for Marine Engineers also includes sample examination questions with worked examples answers to aid students in their learning.
