About this book

This book covers specific aspects of submarine hydrodynamics in a very practical manner. The author reviews basic concepts of ship hydrodynamics and goes on to show how they are applied to submarines, including a look at the use of physical model experiments. The book is intended for professionals working in submarine hydrodynamics, as well as for advanced students in the field.

This revised edition includes updated information on empirical methods for predicting the hydrodynamic manoeuvring coefficients, and for predicting the resistance of a submarine. It also includes new material on how to assess propulsors, and includes measures of wake distortion, which has a detrimental influence on propulsor performance. Additional information on safe manoeuvring envelopes is also provided. The wide range of references has been updated to include the latest material in the field.



About the authors

RENILSON, MARTIN (Prof) has been working in the field of Ship Hydrodynamics for over 35 years. He established the Ship Hydrodynamics Centre at the Australian Maritime College (AMC) in 1983, and was Director of the Australian Maritime Engineering Cooperative Research Centre in 1992. He launched the Department of Naval Architecture & Ocean Engineering at the AMC in 1996, which he ran until 2001 when he was appointed Technical Manager, Maritime Platforms & Equipment for DERA/QinetiQ in the UK. In 2007 Professor Renilson returned to Australia and set up his own company, providing maritime-related consulting. He also held a part-time chair in hydrodynamics at AMC, now an institute of the University of Tasmania. In 2012 he was appointed inaugural Dean of Maritime Programs at the Higher Colleges of Technology, United Arab Emirates, tasked with introducing maritime education in the UAE. He is also an Adjunct Professor of Hydrodynamics at the University of Tasmania, Australia
