Jersey City: Society of Naval Architects, 1993. Reprint. 2 volumes. Trade paperbacks. Just as an increasingly competitive business climate resulting from the realignment of nations is increasing the demand for efficiency in marine systems, increased environmental awareness is demanding higher safety and reliability. But these are obviously not conflicting demands: an unsafe, unreliable ship is neither efficient nor economical. Some of the systems in which such demands are regularly encountered today include open-top container ships, ecologically benign tankers, safe and economical high-performance craft of a variety of configurations, and offshore structures advancing into deeper and more hostile ocean regions. The ITTC is the most important international forum for the exchange of information on the latest research developments involved in the solutions to these problems. New.. Reprint. Trade Paperback. New. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
