The History of Stainless Steel

2010-01-01
This book provides a fascinating glimpse into a vital material that we may take for granted today. Stainless steel, called “the miracle metal” and “the crowning achievement of metallurgy” by the prominent metallurgist Carl Zapffe, is a material marvel with an equally fascinating history of people, places, and technology. As stainless steel nears the 100th anniversary of its discovery, this book is a fitting perspective on a vital material of our modern life, and it is the first book that captures the unfolding excitement and innovations of stainless steel pioneers and entrepreneurs. Amply illustrated with photographs, the book also includes a timeline that lists more than 450 important facts and events related to stainless steels technology and applications.

The Dynamics of Marine Craft

2004-01-01
This book presents a theoretical treatment, as well as a summary of practical methods of computation, of the forces and moments that act on marine craft. Its aim is to provide the tools necessary for the prediction or simulation of craft motions in calm water and in waves. In addition to developing the required equations, the author gives relations that permit at least approximate evaluation of the coefficients so that useful results can be obtained. The approach begins with the equations of motion for rigid bodies, relative to fixed- and moving-coordinate systems; then, the hydrodynamic forces are examined, starting with hydrostatics and progressing to the forces on a moving vehicle in calm water and (after a review of water-wave theory) in waves. Several detailed examples are presented, including calculations of hydrostatics, horizontal- and vertical-plane directional stability, and wave-induced motions.
