Ship Hydrostatics and Stability, Third Edition is a complete guide to understanding ship hydrostatics in ship design and ship performance, taking you from first principles through basic and applied theory to contemporary mathematical techniques for hydrostatic modeling and analysis. Real-life examples of the practical application of hydrostatics are used to explain the theory and calculations using MATLAB and Excel. The new edition of this trusted resource covers new naval architecture regulations such as Second Generation Intact Stability Code (SGISC) and new case studies based on recent capsize and ship stability disasters.

Extensive reference to computational techniques is made throughout and downloadable MATLAB files accompany the book to support the reader's own hydrostatic and stability calculations. The book also includes tables of notations and technical terms and indexes in French, German, Italian, and Spanish.
