HUMAN FACTORS FOR NAVAL MARINE VEHICLE DESIGN & OPERATION By Jonathan M Ross MRINA Ref: HFNM There is a driving need for naval professionals to focus on human factor issues. The number of maritime accidents is increasing and the chief cause is human error, both by the designer and the operator. Decreasing crew size, lack of experienced operators, operations in higher sea states and fatigue worsen the situation. Automation can be a partial solution, but flawed automated systems actually can contribute to accidents at sea. This book integrates knowledge from numerous resources as well as the advice of a panel of eight recognised experts in the fields of related research, development and operation.

INTERIOR DESIGN METHODS FOR YACHT DESIGN AND THE BOAT BUILDING INDUSTRY By Lisa C. Hix Ref: IDMYD In a first-time release to industry and the general public, the Westlawn Institute of Marine Technology announced in April 2009 this textbook was now available for purchase. Specifically prepared as a textbook for Westlawn’s intensive Yacht & Boat Design Program, and also used as the text for Westlawn’s continuing education course in boat interior design this book provides detailed technical information not available from any other source. Heavily illustrated, with numerous line drawings and photos on nearly every page, this textbook will answer almost any question a designer, builder, surveyor, crewmember, or serious boater may have about the accommodations and arrangements required for safe, comfortable, and efficient crew and passenger spaces. Though focused on boats (vessels under 200 feet or 60 meters), the information is equally valuable for commercial vessels of all sizes.

MULTI-HULL SHIPS By V. Dubrovsky FRINA, A. Lyakhovitsky Ref: MHS Catamarans, SWATH, and other multi-hull ships are among the dynamically progressing types of marine vessels both in terms of performance and production growth. This progress has been accompanied by a remarkable growth in the number of technical publications. Although these publications, scattered over many sources, decades, and languages, constitute a great database they cannot fulfill the demand for a comprehensive state-of-the-art reference book. This monograph satisfies such demand. For multi-hull ships it is what “Principles of Naval Architecture” (PNA) is for traditional ships.

SAFETY MANAGEMENT AND ITS MARITIME APPLICATION By Professor Chengi Kuo FRINA Ref: SMMA The author introduces this book by asking a seemingly obvious question "What is safety?". To show there is no straightforward answer he illustrates from his experience in conducting a number of safety workshops worldwide. In the foreword to this book Mr E E Mitropoulos Secretary General of the IMO writes: "As Professor Kuo points out early in his book, safety is not an absolute concept and the levels chosen are based on shared values. It is for this reason that this book is so useful because it introduces safety concepts, explains safety terms, and demonstrates how the different techniques can be applied in practice.

SHALLOW WATER AND SUPERCRITICAL SHIPS By Anatoly Lyakhovitsky Ref: SWSS This book presents systematic and detailed results of studying the hydrodynamics of ships in shallow water. Due to the current trend of building larger and faster ships, many coastal waters and inner waterways become shallow for these and future ships. Clear and detailed explanation is given how ship performance declines in shallow water at speeds approaching the critical speed, and how wasteful can be attempts to boost the propulsion engine unless the ship is designed for optimal regimes at sub critical speeds and can transit to supercritical regimes. Detailed description is also given how the energy wasted for propelling a ship at near-critical speeds in shallow water is transformed into generating destructive and dangerous waves.

SHIPS AND SHIPBUILDERS: PIONEERS OF SHIP DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION By Fred Walker FRINA Ref: SAS Ships and Shipbuilders describes the lives and work of more than 120 great engineers, scientists, shipwrights and naval architects who shaped ship design and shipbuilding world wide. Told chronologically, such well-known names as Anthony Deane, Peter the Great, James Watt, and Isambard Kingdom Brunel share space with lesser known characters like the luckless Frederic Sauvage, a pioneer of screw propulsion who, unable to interest the French navy in his tests in the early 1830s, was bankrupted and landed in debtor’s prison. With the inclusion of such names as Ben Lexcen, the Australian yacht designer who developed the controversial winged keel for the 1983 America’s Cup, the story is brought right up to date.
