Product Description

Review

"Part of Cambridge University Press's Ocean Technology Series,

this book explores the many engineering and architectural aspects of submarine design. Particular attention is given to the interplay between aspects of hydrodynamics, structure and propulsion, and many examples of concept design algorithms are provided. This book will serve as a text for students and as a reference manual for practicing engineers, naval architects, and designers." Proceedings, a publication of the United States Naval Institute, July 1994

Book Description

In addition to architectural considerations, this text explains the concepts of hydrodynamics, structure, powering and dynamics, paying particular attention to their interplay in submarine design. It is intended for engineers and designers in marine and naval engineering, as well as students.

Format: Paperback
The guy who didn't like this book must not have read anything other than the back cover. I used this book when studying for engineering quals on the USS Albuquerque, and it was of great assistance to me. It does have some flaws, which would mainly be an issue for people with no exposure to naval engineering. That being said, it's readable enough that anyone can learn quite a bit about submarine design. The discussions on hull shape,drag, and propulsion alone are worth the price.

This book is a waste of money and time. Please don't waste your money. You can buy and learn the hardway, as I did!.
I wish someone would have wrote an honest review before I wasted my money. You can find the content of this book plus more advanced articles about Submarine design on the internet FREE.

Good general introduction for technically oriented reader Feb. 18 2001
By Thomas Faith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Well organized book which ranges over the topics of general design principles to the mechanics of pressure hulls, boyancy, propolusion and underwater hydrostatics. For the technicaly oriented beginner, insights into the specifics design parameters suffer by the authours' frequent ommission of definitions for their terms. Overall well worth the time to orienting oneself to the subject of submarine design.

Superb insight into the most complex of all ships. Dec 3 1997
By brianda0@bitmailer.net - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
One of the few engineering books that are actually readable by most human beings. For that alone it merits the highest rating. Otherwise, its an excellent and comprehensive introduction to submarines which is also inspiring.

Excellent book for anyone interested on submarines. Sept. 6 2001
By "eliezer_rodriguez" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book offers excellent information from a military point of view but, it is extremly usefull for any submersible. The language is extremly simple even for non-navy oriented readers. The ilustrations are very clear and the book covers from history of military subs to almost how to plan its construction.
