This book is written for marine structural engineers and naval architects, as well as mechanical
engineers and civil engineers who work on struch~ral design. The preparation of the book is
motivated by extensive use of the finite element analysis and dynamidfatigue analysis, fast paced
advances in computer and information technology, and application of risk and reliability methods.
Rawson and Tupper's Basic Ship Theory, first published in 1968, is widely known as the standard introductory text for naval architecture students, as well as being a useful reference for the more experienced designer. The fifth edition continues to provide a balance between theory and practice. Basic Ship Theory is an essential tool for undergraduates and national vocational students of naval architecture, maritime studies, ocean and offshore engineering, and this combined hardback version will be of great assistance to practising marine engineers and naval architects.c...
This book is based on a course of Ship Hydrostatics delivered during a quarter of a
century at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the Technion-Israel Institute
of Technology. The book reflects the author's own experience in design and R&D
and incorporates improvements based on feedback received from students.
Rawson and Tupper's Basic Ship Theory, first published in 1968, is widely known as the standard introductory text for naval architecture students, as well as being a useful reference for the more experienced designer.
The fifth edition continues to provide a balance between theory and practice. Volume 2 expands on the material in Volume 1, covering the dynamics behaviour of marine vehicles, hydrodynamics, manoeuvrability and seakeeping. It concludes with some case studies of particular ship types and a discussion of maritime design.
To stay in business, you must develop and maintain a Value Proposition
that is compelling. Whether you are a high-volume manufacturer of
commercial products or a low-volume, high-value-added producer, over the
last decade Reliability has become a critical aspect of that proposition.
Customers have come to expect that every product shipped will work the
first time and every time. This is evidenced in the PPM, Six Sigma, and Cpk
programs that we, as manufacturers, are expected to deliver.
Whether it's in Java, .NET, or Ruby on Rails, getting your application ready to ship is only half the battle. Did you design your system to survivef a sudden rush of visitors from Digg or Slashdot? Or an influx of real world customers from 100 different countries? Are you ready for a world filled with flakey networks, tangled databases, and impatient users?
If you're a developer and don't want to be on call for 3AM for the rest of your life, this book will help.
In Release It!, Michael T. Nygard shows you how to design and architect your application for the...
The prediction of ship hydrodynamic performance can be broken down into
the general areas of resistance and propulsion, seakeeping, manoeuvring. Propeller flows and propeller design can be seen as a subtopic of resistance
and propulsion, but it is so important and features special techniques that it
is treated as a separate topic in its own right. Morgan and Lin (1998) give a
good short introduction to the historical development of these techniques to
the state of the art in the late 1990s.
The Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) is a relatively small surface combatant vessel intended to perform littoral or coastal missions where highspeed maneuverability, agility, and sprint speed are required. In early 2005, the U.S. Navy commissioned the RAND Corporation to evaluate the operational, logistical, and cost implications of modules being developed and put into service aboard the LCS, a new platform that, through modular design, can be rapidly reconﬁgured to suit changing tactical situations. The ships will com...
Welcome to the second edition of Professional Crystal Reports for Visual Studio .NET. Crystal Reports is one
of the world’s leading software packages for creating interactive reports that can be integrated into a
wide range of Windows and Web applications. With more than four million licenses shipped, Crystal
Reports is the leader among Windows report writers. Crystal Reports has been in the Visual Studio box
since 1993, but with the introduction of Visual Studio .NET 2002, a new version, Crystal Reports .NET,
was integrated more closely than ever before.
Welcome to The Motor Ship’s annual directory of marine diesel engines which is now published on our website so as to make it a more useful reference source for our readers. Produced in A4 size format, it covers engines with ratings of 300kW and upwards from around the world, where it joins what will be an ever increasing
range of news and reference material. In the 2005 Guide marine diesel engines are listed alphabetically by design/manufacturing company.
Your data center is the most critical resource within your organization. As you know, it provides the means for all storage, management and dissemination of data, applications and communications for your business. When employees and customers are unable to access the servers, storage systems and networking devices that reside in the data center, your entire organization can shut down. Millions of dollars can be lost in a matter of minutes for businesses like banks, airlines, shipping facilities and online brokerages.
Progress has been made in many areas of marine engineering since the
first edition of this book was published. A greater emphasis is now being
placed on the cost-effective operation of ships. This has meant more
fuel-efficient engines, less time in port and the need for greater
equipment reliability, fewer engineers and more use of automatically
Cisco documentation and additional literature are available in a Cisco Documentation CD-ROM
package, which is shipped with your product. The Documentation CD-ROM is updated monthly and may
be more current than printed documentation. The CD-ROM package is available as a single unit or
through an annual subscription.
If the customer’s unhappy, everyone’s unhappy!
Every great piece of software starts with a customer’s big idea. It’s your job as a
professional software developer to bring those ideas to life. But taking a vague
idea and turning it into working code—code that satisfies your customer—isn’t
so easy. In this chapter you’ll learn how to avoid being a software development
casualty by delivering software that is needed, on-time, and on-budget. Grab
your laptop and let’s set out on the road to shipping great software...
Making devices small has long had engineering, scientific, and aesthetic motivations.
For example, John Harrison’s quest  to make a small (e.g., hand-sized)
chronometer in the 1700s for nautical navigation was motivated by the desire to
have an accurate time-keeping instrument that was insensitive to temperature,
humidity, and motion. A small chronometer could meet these objectives and allow
for multiple instruments on a ship for redundancy and error averaging. A number
of technological firsts came from this work, such as the development of the roller
