Stability and Trim for the Ship's Officer has been completely updated after twenty-two years. Aboard today's vessels, technology and computers abound as ship's gear. The once long and tedious calculations for stability, trim, and hull strength are now done in minutes. But no matter how much change the industry has undergone, the laws of physics are constant. The only way to verify that the computer is coming up with accurate figures is to read the ship's drafts. _x000D_Two new chapters have been included, "Prerequisites for Stability, Trim, and Hull Strength Calculations," and "U.S. Coast Guard Questions on Stability, Trim, and Longitudinal Hull Strength." The appendix has also been updated to include the Stability Data Reference Book--August 1989 Edition, which is the same supplied in the United States Coast Guard license examination room._x000D_ AUTHOR:

Since it was first published in 1946, this book has become the definitive text on ship stability. It is written from the point of view of the merchant officer and correctly assumes that the officer does not want to wade through unnecessary technical terms. It impresses upon the reader the fact that stability is a practical, though not easy, subject that can be used to increase the safety of the vessel and the comfort of the crew. In addition to extensive sections on transverse and longitudinal stability, the book includes treatment of hull strength and shipboard applications, including the effects of damage to the ship. A chapter on marine disasters demonstrates the need for attention to this vital aspect of shipboard management, and a generous section of appendices includes questions and problems on stability, useful stability and trim formulas, a conversion table, a trim and stability booklet, hydrostatic curve graphs, and a glossary of terms, symbols, and abbreviations.
