Maritime engineering involves many scientific, engineering and engineering aspects as well as economic, legal and insurance aspects. The Maritime Engineering Reference Book has been prepared as a first-hand reference source for those who want to know the basic principles and basic information in the field of marine engineering, and as an easy reference for those who want to read in more detail about a particular subject. . .This book is intended for a wide audience, including marine engineers, marine and oceanographers, non-marine scientists and researchers. It should be used by students of naval architecture, marine sciences and naval engineering, and other natural science and engineering students interested in maritime subjects. It should also be attractive to finance and others interested in maritime affairs, including law, research, insurance and maritime policy. The content of has been selected to provide an overview of marine engineering, focusing on practical aspects of the marine environment, types of marine vessels, ships and vessels, construction, operation and safety.
