Naval Architecture for Non-Naval Architects
by Harry Benford (1991)
By providing an understanding of the basic concepts of naval architecture, this book is the perfect companion for the maritime professional who is not a naval architect, but needs to be able to communicate effectively with naval architects. Written in engaging and easily understood terms, this book concentrates on two aspects of naval architecture: design and analysis. Technical discussions are almost entirely qualitative rather than quantitative and coverage focuses on conventional ship worthiness, structural integrity, powering requirements and functional capability. Harry Benford is Professor Emeritus and former Chairman of the Department of Naval Architecture at the University of Michigan.
