AeroHydro’s founder and chairman Dr. John Letcher is the
author of a new reference book titled
The Geometry of Ships, published in 2009 by the Society of Naval
Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME).
Geometry of Ships is Volume 1 of what will
eventually be a 9-volume series, collectively titled
Principles of Naval Architecture. Other volumes in the series cover
intact and damaged stability, ship structures and strength, propulsion and
resistance, motions in waves, and directional control. Past editions of the
series have been widely used as reference material and textbooks for the
field of ship design and engineering.
The new edition has a much stronger emphasis
throughout on computer-aided design methods. Principal topics of
The Geometry of Ships include:
points and coordinate systems; geometry of curves, surfaces and solids;
subdivision surfaces; hull surface definition; displacement and weight; form
coefficients; and upright hydrostatics.
