The Kemp and Young series provides a general introduction to a number of subject areas in a style that will be ideally suited for those wishing to learn more. The concise presentation of the subject matter is made possible by the reduction of the work to its simplest terms. This is achieved through the omission of unnecessary mathematics or mathematical concepts, and the generous use of diagrams and illustrations. Rapid reference to the substance of each topic can be made by use of the carefully constructed index.

The third edition of 'Ship Stability: Notes and Examples' has been updated by Dr C B Barrass, who has wide experience in both industry and the academic field. The book has been thoroughly revised and expanded to be more in line with current examinations, and now covers topics such as ship squat, angle of heel whilst turning, and moments of inertia via Simpson's Rules. Also included is a diagram showing Deadweight-Moment.

Ship Stability: Notes and Examples is an invaluable tool to aid in the passing of maritime examinations.
