Description: The techniques of ship construction advance steadily over the years. This book meets the needs of those connected with ships, whether practising engineers or students. It is an up-to-date review of current ship types, their construction, special features and outfit requirements. Current shipbuilding techniques are described and the ship as a stressed structure is examined. The major items and regions of structure are illustrated in detail, and types and methods of strengthening and stiffening are explained. The statutory and regulatory bodies and organisations involved in shipping and shipbuilding are described, together with their influence on ship construction. The final chapters deal with the corrosion process and the preventive methods employed for the ships.
