About the Author

Odd M. Faltinsen received his Ph.D. in naval architecture and marine engineering from the University of Michigan in 1971. He has been a Professor of Marine Hydrodynamics at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) since 1974. Dr Faltinsen has experience with a broad spectrum of hydrodynamically related problems for ships and sea structures, including hydroelastic problems and slamming. Faltinsen is a member of the Norwegian Academy for Technical Sciences, the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, the Royal Norwegian Society of Sciences and Letters and a foreign member of the US National Academy of Engineering. He has held visiting professorships three times at MIT and at the Research Institute of Applied Mechanics, Kyushu University. His publications include more than 200 scientific papers, and books including Sea Loads on Ships and Offshore Structures (Cambridge University Press, 1990) and Sloshing, with A. Timohka (Cambridge University Press, 2010).

Reviews

'... excellent coverage of special topics that may not be included in traditional marine hydrodynamics textbooks. The book is an excellent technical resource for information about high-speed vessels, as it provides a summary of relevant recent research and references. I highly recommend this book to naval architects and marine and coastal engineers. This book is a valuable desktop reference for planners, designers, and decision makers involved in various issues concerning high-speed vessels.' Journal of Waterway, Port, Coastal, and Ocean Engineering
'The book strikes a good compromise in presentation between two possible extremes: a purely descriptive narrative on the one hand, and a highly mathematical treatment on the other hand. This reviewer believes that the book will soon become a standard reference on the subject. While the book is definitely mathematical, there are also many clear and straightforward explanations of the physics which should be acceptable to most engineering students. The typography of the book is of a high standard.' Journal of Fluid Mechanics
