GEM 321E - Ship Theory

Course Objectives

1. To provide an understanding of basic hydrostatics and stability of ships and marine vehicles, both intact and damaged,
2. To offer various solution techniques to estimate the hydrostatic and stability properties and launching characteristics of ships and marine vehicles,
