Download or read book entitled Practical Ship Hydrodynamics by author: Volker Bertram which was release on 25 August 2011 and published by Elsevier with total page 382 pages . This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Practical Ship Hydrodynamics provides a comprehensive overview of hydrodynamic experimental and numerical methods for ship resistance and propulsion, maneuvering, seakeeping and vibration. Beginning with an overview of problems and approaches, including the basics of modeling and full scale testing, expert author Volker Bertram introduces the marine applications of computational fluid dynamics and boundary element methods. Expanded and updated, this new edition includes: Otherwise disparate information on the factors affecting ship hydrodynamics, combined to provide one practical, go-to resource. Full coverage of new developments in computational methods and model testing techniques relating to marine design and development. New chapters on hydrodynamic aspects of ship vibrations and hydrodynamic options for fuel efficiency, and increased coverage of simple design estimates of hydrodynamic quantities such as resistance and wake fraction. With a strong focus on essential background for real-life modeling, this book is an ideal reference for practicing naval architects and graduate students.
