Book Description

7 Dec 1995 Cambridge Ocean Technology Series (Book 2)
This book explores the many engineering and architectural aspects of submarine design and how they relate to each other and the operational performance required of the vessel. Concepts of hydrodynamics, structure, powering and dynamics are explained, in addition to architectural considerations which bear on the submarine design process. The interplay between these aspects of design is given particular attention, and a final chapter is devoted to the generation of the concept design for the submarine as a whole. Submarine design makes extensive use of computer aids, and examples of algorithms used in concept design are given. The emphasis in the book is on providing engineering insight as well as an understanding of the intricacies of the submarine design process. It will serve as a text for students and as a reference manual for practising engineers and designers.

Format:Paperback
The book is understandably written and the major aspects of submarine design, principles and structure are explained in a very comprehensive and illustrative manner. An overvieuw of the first submarines gives you an understanding of the evolution in submarine design. Although the book focuses more on military submarines all basic principles are explained and taken into account. From bouyancy, trim, weight assesments everything is explained in basic terms. The book is not complete in a way that someone could actually design a submarine (for example you would have to read and understand more about hydraulics or high pressure valves, air cleaningsystems and so on) but in essence all major topics are included as with the prelimary formula's (for example stability calculations or pressure hull weight). In other words the book is complete and I would consider it the basic handbook in understanding the principles in submarine design for submarine enthousiasts or naval architecs. The book starts with explaining the basic terminology which is needed to understand the rest of the material, it reads very easily so anyone with a mere interest in submersibles (not only naval architects)can enjoy the matters which the authors are dealing with. As mentioned before the book is more focused on military submarines (explaining the role of the submarine, submarine tactics, nuclear propulsion vs diesel electric or a comparison on how torpedo's can be launched). This too is quite interesting even for those who do not specifically search for data on military submarine's. I can recomend this book to anyone interested in the technical aspects of submarine's and I am certain that you will enjoy it as i did.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good general introduction for technically oriented reader 18 Feb 2001
By Thomas Faith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Well organized book which ranges over the topics of general design principles to the mechanics of pressure hulls, boyancy, propolusion and underwater hydrostatics. For the technicaly oriented beginner, insights into the specifics design parameters suffer by the authours' frequent ommission of definitions for their terms. Overall well worth the time to orienting oneself to the subject of submarine design.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb insight into the most complex of all ships. 3 Dec 1997
By brianda0@bitmailer.net - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
One of the few engineering books that are actually readable by most human beings. For that alone it merits the highest rating. Otherwise, its an excellent and comprehensive introduction to submarines which is also inspiring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good technical look at sub design 2 Jan 2004
By Tugboat - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The guy who didn't like this book must not have read anything other than the back cover. I used this book when studying for engineering quals on the USS Albuquerque, and it was of great assistance to me. It does have some flaws, which would mainly be an issue for people with no exposure to naval engineering. That being said, it's readable enough that anyone can learn quite a bit about submarine design. The discussions on hull shape,drag, and propulsion alone are worth the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for anyone interested on submarines. 6 Sep 2001
By "eliezer_rodriguez" - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book offers excellent information from a military point of view but, it is extremly usefull for any submersible. The language is extremly simple even for non-navy oriented readers. The ilustrations are very clear and the book covers from history of military subs to almost how to plan its construction.
