English version textbooks of
"Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering Series"
2nd Release

The "Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering Series", which consists of 12 volumes of textbooks written in Japanese, has been the best seller books of the Japan Society of Naval Architects and Ocean Engineers (JASNAOE) since its publication in 2013. For the sake of non-Japanese foreign students and engineers, English version of the series has been long awaited and finally several volumes of the series have now been released in English.

The series of these books is well suited for fundamental study of ships and offshore structures concerning the stability, resistance, propulsion, dynamic performance, structural strength, manufacturing, and so forth. Three textbooks (series 1, 6, 7) were released first and now secondly two textbooks (series 2, 3) have been added in the English series publication.

Series 1: Ship Geometry and Fundamentals of Hydrostatics
by Y. Ikeda, Y. Furukawa, T. Katayama, T. Katsui, M. Murai, S. Yamaguchi
B5 size 169pp・¥3,600 (ex.tax)

Series 1: Ship Geometry and Fundamentals of Hydrostatics

This book, which is the first of the series, summarizes the fundamentals in naval architecture, such as hull geometry, hydrostatics and stability that any engineer engaged in shipbuilding must be familiar with. It is hoped that this book is found useful first book for learning about ships and shipbuilding techniques. Contents of this book are as follows.

Chapter 1
Basic Knowledge of Ships
Chapter 2
Representation of Hull
Chapter 3
Displacement Calculation and Hydrostatic Curves
Chapter 4
Basics of Stability
Chapter 5
Application of Force of Stability (Ship Stability)
Chapter 6
Related Basic Theories and Various Theorems

Series 2: Resistance and Propulsion
by K. Suzuki, N. Sasaki, T. Kawamura
B5 size 215pp・¥4,000 (ex.tax)

Series 2: Resistance and Propulsion

This book aims at providing basic knowledge of resistance and propulsion for undergraduate and graduate students and people in the maritime industry who are involved in the performance design and basic design of ships. This book additionally contains basic descriptions for important concepts as a "Note" and "Exercise" to aid understanding the concepts. The "Feature" corners give some information that may be useful and interesting for readers.

Chapter 1
Fundamentals of ship resistance
Chapter 2
Viscous resistance
Chapter 3
Wave making resistance
Chapter 4
Other resistances acting on a ship
Chapter 5
Fundamentals of propulsors
Chapter 6
Cavitation
Chapter 7
Propulsive efficiency
Chapter 8
Model tests and analysis

Series 3: Ship Maneuverability
by H. Yasukawa, Y. Yoshimura
B5 size 148pp・¥3,400 (ex.tax)

Series 3: Ship Maneuverability

The ship maneuvering includes various motions such as straight moving with acceleration/deceleration, stopping with propeller reversing, course changing by steering, turning with large rudder angle, and zig-zag maneuver, etc. This book deals with most of them except for birthing in a harbor. The effect of external forces from wind and current cannot be neglected. In ship maneuverability the ship hull is usually treated as a rigid body and external forces in the equation of motions are estimated from hydrodynamic force components acting on the ship hull, propeller and rudder.

Chapter 1
Equation of Motion of Ship Maneuvering
Chapter 2
Force and Moment Acting on Ship
Chapter 3
Fundamentals of Ship Maneuvering
Chapter 4
Turning Ability
Chapter 5
Course Stability
Chapter 6
Acceleration/Deceleration Motion and Stopping Ability
Chapter 7
Ship Maneuverability in Wind
Chapter 8
Ship Maneuverability in Restricted Waters
Chapter 9
Maneuverability of Tow and Towed Ship System

Series 6: Fundamentals of Ship Strength Analysis - Part 1 Structure and Global Strength
by M. Fujikubo, T. Yoshikawa, T. Fukasawa, N. Osawa, H. Suzuki
B5 size 191pp・¥3,600 (ex.tax)

Series 6: Fundamentals of Ship Strength Analysis - Part 1 Structure and Global Strength

This book summarizes basic topics related to the hull structure and strength evaluation of a ship. It should serve as a foundation for those involved in the structural design and strength evaluation of a ship as well as students of ship engineering. Although the focus is on ships, many of the topics are applicable to floating structures in general including offshore structures. It is hoped that this book will help deepen the reader's understanding of the structure and strength of ships. Contents of this book are as follows.

Chapter 1
Structure of the Ship
Chapter 2
Structural Strength and Safety of the Ship
Chapter 3
Methods of Hull Structural Design
Chapter 4
Loads Acting on the Ship's Hull
Chapter 5
Ship Construction Materials and Their Properties
Chapter 6
Bending Strength of the Hull Girder
Chapter 7
Torsional Strength of the Hull Girder
Chapter 8
Transverse Strength of the Hull
Chapter 9
Failure Modes of the Hull Structure

Series 7: Fundamentals of Ship Strength Analysis - Part 2 Design load, Local strength, and Hull girder ultimate strength
by M. Fujikubo, T. Yoshikawa, T. Fukasawa, N. Osawa, K. Gotoh
B5 size 243pp・¥4,200 (ex.tax)

Series 7: Fundamentals of Ship Strength Analysis - Part 2 Design load, Local strength, and Hull girder ultimate strength

In this Part 2 Design load, local strength, and hull girder ultimate strength, the authors first detail the statistical prediction methods for the loads and structural responses that are required for the strength evaluation in structural failure modes, and then explain the properties of some representative local and global structural strengths and their strength evaluation methods.

This book consists of four parts:

  1. Statistical estimation method of loads and responses: Chapter 1
  2. Yielding and buckling strength
    1. Beam-column members: Chapter 2 and 3
    2. Plate structures: Chapter 4 and 5
    3. Hull girder: Chapter 6
  3. Fatigue and fracture strength
    1. Fatigue strength: Chapter 7
    2. Fracture strength: Chapter 8
    3. Fractography: Chapter 9
  4. Ship structural steels: Chapter 10

The price of the books varies from ¥3,400 (series 3) to ¥4,200 (series 7) without tax and postage. You may use the order-form to purchase and send it to JASNAOE, then you can save VAT and postage cost (domestic).
