Topics include: symbols and nomenclature; tools; flotation and trim; stability; hazards; ship girder; more." --Offshore Engineer, October 2004
"This is one of the leading textbooks for naval architect students, and it remains a fine reference book....The subject matter is presented clearly with a great deal of information contained in the two volumes... Basic Ship Theory remains a primary textbook, designed to provide the student with an understanding of the fundamental principles of shiop design. A particular strength is the large number (more than 500) of worked examples, with answers included in the text." --The Naval Architect, Feb. 2002
"Will be of great assistance to practising marine engineers and naval architects." --Maritime Journal, December 2001
