Handbook of Marine Surveying DISCOUNTED!
This is a textbook for students of marine surveying, boating professionals and technically- minded boat owners. The book is structured into sections for easy reading. Essential information is provided in the first primer section where subjects range from composite materials to failure mechanisms. Then follows a survey checklist which is fully annotated to provide practical techniques and hints for conducting a survey. Design guides provide a concise collection of practical, theoretical and regulatory information.
The Primer Section includes the mechanical behavior of materials, failure analysis, stress concentration, fatigue and fracture, corrosion, polymer chemistry and characteristics of common plastics, metal and the comparison and characteristics of alloys and composite materials and their properties.
