Book review: Hydrodynamics of high-performance marine vessels

Author(s): J.K. Paik

Abstract:
This book is a comprehensive two-volume book devoted to the analysis of common types of high-speed marine vessels. These vessels may also be generally referred to as advanced marine craft. Types of craft addressed include monohulls, catamarans, trimarans and othermultihull vessels, air-cushion vehicles, surface-effect ships and planning craft. The hydrodynamic aspects dealt with are the steady-state resistance, wave generation, sinkage and trim, unsteady effects and motions in waves. Separate chapters are devoted to viscous resistance, transom sterns and the behaviour of skirts for aircushion vehicles and seals for surface-effect ships. Effects of the finite depth of the water and the possible lateral restriction on
the width of the waterway feature prominently in the book. In each case, the presentation includes a full analytical development of the theory accompanied by a comparison of the theoretical predictions with extensive experimental data.
