Deals with the prediction of speed and power in ships — an important part of ship design. Describes the techniques used in ship model experiments as well as different types of experimental facilities. Considers different methods of estimating or determining speed and power. Questions regarding wake, thrust deduction, cavitation, and propeller design are covered. Correlates the interaction between ship, machinery, and propeller. Includes a thorough exposition of shipyards' and shipowners' needs for model testing. Extensive drawings and diagrams highlight the text.
