Added Masses of Ship Structures
Knowledge of added body masses that interact with fluid is necessary in various research and applied tasks of hydro- and aeromechanics: steady and unsteady motion of rigid bodies, total vibration of bodies in fluid, local vibration of the external plating of different structures. This reference book contains data on added masses of ships and various ship and marine engineering structures. Also theoretical and experimental methods for determining added masses of these objects are described. A major part of the material is presented in the format of final formulas and plots which are ready for practical use.
The book summarises all key material that was published in both Russian and English-language literature.
This volume is intended for technical specialists of shipbuilding and related industries.
The author is one of the leading Russian experts in the area of ship hydrodynamics.
Summarizes most of known results on added masses of objects of various geometryEssentially self-contained and includes the necessary theoretical backgrounEasy to use in practice: most of results are presented in the form of final formulas and plotsContains the complete list of existing literature on the topicSelected sections of the book devoted to added masses of vibrating bodies are written by other leading Russian marine engineers
