Description: 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 quickly 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
Additional info: Adrian Biran, born Birbanescu, received a Cum laude Diploma of Engineering, in the field of ship engineering, from the Bucharest Polytechnic Institute, and Master of Science and Doctor of Science degrees from the TECHNION — Israel Institute of Technology, the latter two with theses related to software for Marine Engineering and Naval Architecture. After graduating he worked as Design Engineer, Chief of Department and Project Leader at IPRONAV — the Institute for Ship Design, in Bucharest. In continuation he managed the design office of the Bucharest Studios and worked as Project Leader at IPA — the Institute for Automation Design, in Bucharest. In Israel Adrian Biran worked as a Senior Engineer at the Israel Shipyards, Haifa, and as Research Fellow and Research Engineer at the Technion R&D Foundation. In parallel with the above activities Adrian Biran served as a project instructor at the Military Technical Academy, in Bucharest, and at the Beersheba University. He has been for many years an adjunct teacher at the TECHNION — Israel Institute of Technology. Adrian Biran is the author of several technical papers on various subjects including also Naval Architecture.
