Lectures on Ship Manoeuvrability
by Nikolai Kornev
Publisher: Bookboon 2013
Number of pages: 177
This book is written on the base of a lecture course taught by the author at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Marine Technology at the Rostock University in Germany. The course contains fourteen lectures which include main principles of ship manoeuvrability. Experimental, theoretical and numerical methods used in the ship theory are presented in a clear and simple form. Each chapter is supplied with exercises which can be solved either analytically or using software provided by the author.

Despite a significant increase in research activities after the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami, there certainly can be -- and needs to be -- more research with the aim to reduce the destruction caused by tsunamis to us and our environment.

The book is approaching the problems of ships stability loss through the study of operational aspects as well as dynamic ship behaviour in severe conditions offering a picture of some stability failure modes that are not covered by any regulations.
