Marine Rudders and Control Surfaces guides naval architects from the first principles of the physics of control surface operation, to the use of experimental and empirical data and applied computational fluid dynamic modelling of rudders and control surfaces. The empirical and theoretical methods applied to control surface design are described in depth and their use explained through application to particular cases. The design procedures are complemented with a number of worked practical examples of rudder and control surface design. • The only text dedicated to marine control surface design • Provides experimental, theoretical and applied design information valuable for practising engineers, designers and students • Accompanied by an online extensive experimental database together with software for theoretical predictions and design development
The coursekeeping and maneuvering requirements for a ship are governed by international maritime law. In assessing and predicting the coursekeeping and maneuvering capabilities of the ship, knowledge is required of the rudder forces necessary to keep a course or facilitate a maneuver. Marine Rudders, Hydrofoils and Control Surfaces: Principles, Data, Design and Applications, Second Edition includes up-to-date data and rudder design techniques which enable the rudder forces to be estimated, together with any interactions due to the hull and propeller. The professional will also face the need to design control surfaces for motion control, such as roll and pitch, for surface vessels and submersibles, and the book contains the necessary techniques and data to carry out these tasks. The new edition also describes the design and application of hydrofoils including shape adaptive design, and their applications including hydrofoil craft, yachts and kite surfing hydrofoils. This book is for practicing naval architects and marine engineers, small craft designers, yacht designers, hydrodynamicists, undergraduate and postgraduate students of naval architecture, ship science and the broader engineering sciences, as well as the broader engineering community involved in development of marine craft that rely on the generation of ‘lift’ such as control engineers and aerodynamicists. Describes techniques for analyzing the performance characteristics of rudders, hydrofoils and control surfaces Includes extensive data and worked examples for the analysis of rudder, hydrofoil and control surface performance Provides a detailed examination of the design of hydrofoils
The Maritime Engineering Reference Book is a one-stop source for engineers involved in marine engineering and naval architecture. In this essential reference, Anthony F. Molland has brought together the work of a number of the world's leading writers in the field to create an inclusive volume for a wide audience of marine engineers, naval architects and those involved in marine operations, insurance and other related fields. Coverage ranges from the basics to more advanced topics in ship design, construction and operation. All the key areas are covered, including ship flotation and stability, ship structures, propulsion, seakeeping and maneuvering. The marine environment and maritime safety are explored as well as new technologies, such as computer aided ship design and remotely operated vehicles (ROVs). Facts, figures and data from world-leading experts makes this an invaluable ready-reference for those involved in the field of maritime engineering. Professor A.F. Molland, BSc, MSc, PhD, CEng, FRINA. is Emeritus Professor of Ship Design at the University of Southampton, UK. He has lectured ship design and operation for many years. He has carried out extensive research and published widely on ship design and various aspects of ship hydrodynamics. * A comprehensive overview from best-selling authors including Bryan Barrass, Rawson and Tupper, and David Eyres * Covers basic and advanced material on marine engineering and Naval Architecture topics * Have key facts, figures and data to hand in one complete reference book
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.
engineers into a single volume whilst concentrating on two important research control design problems: autopilots with rudder-roll stabilization and fin and combined rudder-fin stabilization. He has been guided by some of the leading marine control academics, in particular Mogens Blanke and Thor Fossen; indeed Chapters 3 and 4 on kinematics and kinetics of ship motion are jointly authored with Professor Fossen. There are some 240 cited references – an invaluable resource for interested readers. The volume is likely to appeal to a wide range of readers who will each be able to extract something different from the various parts of the monograph. Part I has some four chapters on the modelling fundamentals including kinematics, dynamics and actuators. Part II is a very useful survey of the ship roll stabilization problem and how ship roll performance is measured and assessed. This clearly motivates the human necessity for roll-reduction and roll stabilization. Parts III and IV move on to the control systems aspects of the various stabilization designs. Valuable material here includes a study of system performance limitations as caused by the presence of non-minimum phase characteristics and actuator saturation. Chapter 10 has an interesting historical review of these marine control problems stretching back some thirty-years into the 1970s.
The early development of the screw propeller. Propeller geometry. The propeller environment. The ship wake field, propeller perfomance characteristics.
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.
This book covers specific aspects of submarine hydrodynamics in a very practical manner. The author reviews basic concepts of ship hydrodynamics and goes on to show how they are applied to submarines, including a look at the use of physical model experiments. The book is intended for professionals working in submarine hydrodynamics, as well as for advanced students in the field. This revised edition includes updated information on empirical methods for predicting the hydrodynamic manoeuvring coefficients, and for predicting the resistance of a submarine. It also includes new material on how to assess propulsors, and includes measures of wake distortion, which has a detrimental influence on propulsor performance. Additional information on safe manoeuvring envelopes is also provided. The wide range of references has been updated to include the latest material in the field.
A textbook that offers a unified treatment of the applications of hydrodynamics to marine problems.
