This detailed guide describes the key features of ships, the stresses of the marine environment and the science of naval architecture. It has primarily been written to meet the needs of engineers and navigators serving in the Merchant Navy, but will also be useful to those in shipbuilding, shipping and any other interested parties.

Part 1 of this book covers the challenges of the marine environment and the stresses it places on a ship, its equipment and its personnel. It discusses the crucial elements of strength, freeboard and stability and references the statutory regulations applicable to shipbuilding. The key features of different types of merchant ship are highlighted, supported by line drawings. Part 2 discusses the basic principles of naval architecture, covering definitions of symbols and terms such as transverse stability, rudders and oscillation and propulsion and propellers.
