This book details the efforts to build a large naval vessel capable of traveling at one hundred knots. It is the first book to summarize 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), hydro-dynamic, aerostatic, and aerodynamic. This text will appeal to naval researchers, architects, graduate students and historians, as well as others generally interested in naval architecture and propulsion.N1a€, Hydrodynamics Note PRC/DGG/MFKi/3823, Saunders Roe Ltd, November 1960 6. ... of Turbomachines, Part A: Similarity Relations and Design Criteria of Turbinesa€, American Society of Mechanical Engineers Paper 60WA230 (1960) 16 .
