The Geometry of Ships, now available from the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME), presents the theoretical basis for these hull modeling systems and the procedures for computing hull geometric, buoyancy and other properties by mathematical methods utilizing such models.

Written by SNAME Life Member John S. Letcher, Jr., author of over 30 publications on computer-aided design and analysis of boats, ships and marine structures, this new book emphasizes the nomenclature and fundamentals underlying several different methods of hull geometrical modeling to provide the understanding needed to use intelligently both existing and future tools.

The Geometry of Ships can be ordered online at www.sname.org/publications_catalog.htm (and click the “Go To New Titles” button) or by calling 1+(800) 798-2188 (in the U.S. & Canada) or 1+(201) 499-5068. $40.00 ($35.00 for SNAME members, $30.00 for student members), plus shipping.
