The monograph presents a systematic and detailed description of naval architecture disciplines for multi-hull ships such as hydrostatics, stability, resistance, propulsion in calm water and high seas, seakeeping, controllability, strength, and specifics of applying the multi-hull concepts to various fields of marine transportation. The scope of architectural types encompasses all the variety of multi-hull "species" from ordinary catamarans and trimarans to SWATH ships, wave-piercing, hydrofoils, supercritical shallow-water catamarans, and to ships with more than three hulls. The sizes of ships range from small fast crafts to large ferries, from river passenger catamarans to transatlantic container carriers, and from high-speed patrol boats to naval combatants and aircraft carriers. This book is a sort of multi-discipline reference book akin to the SNAME's 3-volume "Principles of Naval Architecture". In this respect, the book is unique and the only one available in English yet. The book is addressed to virtually all kinds of readers involved in production and operation of multi-hull ships including designers, naval architects and marine engineers, university professors and graduates, planning and ship operating managers. It is a "must-have" for technical libraries, rule developing organizations, design offices and shipyards, universities, and consulting experts.
