Marine Hydrodynamics was specifically designed to meet the need for an ocean hydrodynamics text that is up-to-date in terms of both content and approach. The book is solidly based on fundamentals, but it also guides the student to an understanding of their engineering applications through its consideration of realistic configurations. Such texts have proved valuable in aerodynamics courses, but in hydrodynamics a wide gap has existed between basic texts on fluid mechanics and the engineering handbooks that are the stock-in-trade of ship designers.
