High-Speed Marine Craft by Peter J. Mantle

This book details the efforts to build a large naval vessel capable of traveling at 100 knots. It is the first book that summarizes this extensive work from historical and technical perspectives. It explores the unique principles and challenges in the design of high-speed marine craft. This volume explores different hull form concepts, requiring an understanding of the four forces affecting the lift and the drag of the craft. The four forces covered are hydrostatic (buoyancy), hydrodynamic, aerostatic and aerodynamic forces. This text will appeal to naval researchers, architects, graduate students and historians, as well as others generally interested in naval architecture and propulsion.
