Key good points include:
- a three-part constitution masking Modeling of Marine Craft; information, Navigation and keep watch over platforms; and Appendices, offering all of the helping conception in one resource
- kinematics, kinetics, hydrostatics, seakeeping and maneuvering concept, and simulation types for marine craft and environmental forces
- guidance structures, sensor fusion and built-in navigation structures, inertial size devices, Kalman filtering and nonlinear observer layout for marine craft
- state-of-the-art equipment for suggestions control
- more complicated tools utilizing nonlinear thought, allowing the consumer to check linear layout recommendations prior to a last implementation is made.
- linear and nonlinear balance concept, and numerical methods
- companion web site that hosts hyperlinks to lecture notes and obtain info for the Marine platforms Simulator (MSS) that's an open resource Matlab/Simulink® toolbox for marine platforms. The MSS toolbox comprises hydrodynamic types and movement regulate platforms for ships, underwater cars and floating structures
With a suitable stability among mathematical idea and useful purposes, educational and business researchers operating in marine and keep watch over engineering elements of manned and unmanned maritime autos will reap the benefits of this finished guide. it's also compatible for ultimate yr undergraduates and postgraduates, teachers, improvement officials, and practitioners within the components of rigid-body modeling, hydrodynamics, simulation of marine craft, keep watch over and estimation thought, decision-support structures and sensor fusion. www.wiley.com/go/fossen_marine

The well known warship writer, D ok Brown, examines the advance of those vessels and appears at how wartime event affected warship layout. in addition to battleships and battlecruisers, for the 1st time the developmental historical past of smaller vessels corresponding to minesweepers, screens and escort vessels, inbuilt direct reaction to wartime wishes, is defined, as is that of the submarine and airplane provider. an in depth research is made up of conflict harm, together with the position performed through ammunition explosions within the lack of 3 British battlecruisers at Jutland. additionally defined are the postwar capital send designs, killed off by means of the Washington Treaty, that are one of the so much attention-grabbing ‘might-have-beens’ of naval history.
A vintage paintings back to be had for historians and fans, detailing the improvement of all these ships that enabled the Royal military to rule the waves perfect and guard state and empire.
