Compiled with the help of an internationally acclaimed panel of experts, the Ocean Engineering Handbook is the most complete reference available for professionals. It offers you comprehensive coverage of important areas of the theory and practice of oceanic/coastal engineering and technology.
This well organized text includes five major sections: Marine Hydro Dynamics and Vehicles Control, Modeling Considerations, Position Control Systems for Offshore Vessels, Applications of Computational Intelligence in the Ocean's Environment, and Fiber Optics in Oceanographic Applications. Designed to be used as a traditional handbook, it thoroughly covers position control theory and implementations and offers a close look at the present state of ocean engineering.
With 200 tables and over 100 figures, the Ocean Engineering Handbook will give you a head start in many aspects of oceanic engineering.
