Explores the engineering and architectural aspects of submarine design.
'The authors of this book are internationally known for their
contributions and capabilities in submarine design and
construction. They have outlined the concept design process in a
simple yet complete manner ... an excellent guide for anyone in the
submarine business.' The Naval Architect
"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
