Synopsis

Ship Resistance and Propulsion provides a comprehensive approach to evaluating ship resistance and propulsion. Informed by applied research, including experimental and CFD techniques, this book provides guidance for the practical estimation of ship propulsive power for a range of ship types. Published standard series data for hull resistance and propeller performance enables practitioners to make ship power predictions based on material and data contained within the book. Fully worked examples illustrate applications of the data and powering methodologies; these include cargo and container ships, tankers and bulk carriers, ferries, warships, patrol craft, work boats, planing craft and yachts. The book is aimed at a broad readership including practising naval architects and marine engineers, seagoing officers, small craft designers, undergraduate and postgraduate students. Also useful for those involved in transportation, transport efficiency and ecologistics who need to carry out reliable estimates of ship power requirements.

Anthony F. Molland is Emeritus Professor of Ship Design at the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom. For many years, Professor Molland has extensively researched and published papers on ship design and ship hydrodynamics including propellers and ship resistance components, ship rudders and control surfaces. He also acts as a consultant to industry in these subject areas and has gained international recognition through presentations at conferences and membership of committees of the International Towing Tank Conference (ITTC). Professor Molland is the co-author of Marine Rudders and Control Surfaces (2007) and editor of Maritime Engineering Reference Book (2008). Stephen R. Turnock is Professor of Maritime Fluid Dynamics at the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom. Professor Turnock lectures on many subjects, including ship resistance and propulsion, powercraft performance, marine renewable energy and applications of CFD. His research encompasses both experimental and theoretical work on energy efficiency of shipping, performance sport, underwater systems and renewable energy devices, together with the application of CFD for the design of propulsion systems and control surfaces. He acts as a consultant to industry in these subject areas, and as a member of the committees of the International Towing Tank Conference (ITTC) and International Ship and Offshore Structures Congress (ISSC). Professor Turnock is the co-author of Marine Rudders and Control Surfaces (2007). Dominic A. Hudson is Senior Lecturer in Ship Science at the University of Southampton in the United Kingdom. Dr Hudson lectures on ship resistance and propulsion, powercraft performance and design, recreational and high speed craft and ship design. His research interests are in all areas of ship hydrodynamics, including experimental and theoretical work on ship resistance components, seakeeping and manoeuvring, together with ship design for minimum energy consumption. He is a member of the 26th International Towing Tank Conference (ITTC) specialist committee on high speed craft and was a member of the 17th International Ship and Offshore Structures Congress (ISSC) committee on sailing yacht design.
