Geometry for Naval Architects
Auteur : Biran Adrian
Geometry for Naval Architects is the essential guide to the principles of naval geometry. Formerly fragmented throughout various sources, the topic is now presented in this comprehensive book that explains the history and specific applications of modern naval architecture mathematics and techniques, including numerous examples, applications, and references to further enhance understanding.
With a natural four-section organization (Traditional Methods, Differential Geometry, Computer Methods, and Applications in Naval Architecture), users will progress from basic fundamentals to specific applications. Careful instruction and a wealth of practical applications spare readers the extensive searches once necessary to understand the mathematical background of naval architecture and help them understand the meanings and uses of discipline-specific computer programs.
- Explains the basics of geometry as applied to naval architecture, with specific practical applications included throughout the book for real-life insights
- Presents traditional methods and computational techniques (including MATLAB)
- Provides a wealth of examples in MATLAB and MultiSurf (a computer-aided design package for naval architects and engineers)
- Includes supplemental MATLAB and MultiSurf code available on a companion site
