Hydrodynamics of High-Speed Marine Vehicles by Odd M. Faltinsen

Book Description

Hydrodynamics of High-Speed Marine Vehicles, first published in 2006, discusses the three main categories of high-speed marine vehicles - vessels supported by submerged hulls, air cushions or foils. The wave environment, resistance, propulsion, seakeeping, sea loads and manoeuvring are extensively covered based on rational and simplified methods. Links to automatic control and structural mechanics are emphasized. A detailed description of waterjet propulsion is given and the effect of water depth on wash, resistance, sinkage and trim is discussed. Chapter topics include resistance and wash; slamming; air cushion-supported vessels, including a detailed discussion of wave-excited resonant oscillations in air cushion; and hydrofoil vessels. The book contains numerous illustrations, examples and exercises.

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).
