Suppkmrlrty Natrr A project of the SNAME Ship Production Committee Education and Training Panel 16. Aktmt A video lecture course presenting the fundamentals of naval architecture was developed as part of the government- industry-supported National Shipbuilding Research Program (NSRP). This publication, along with Volumes I1 and III, contains the instructor syllabus, problem sets, and solutions that complement the videotapes. The notes include many of the slides used in the videotapes and are intended to be used by the instructor for overhead transparencies. The following topics are covered in this volume: Introduction, Ship Types and Ship Systems, Nomenclature, Dimension Form and Flotation, and Static Stability. This material was developed to convey to trade school students the foundations of naval architecture. Tilz level of material presented makes it suitable for engineers transferring into the field of naval architecture, a college level study course for students not majoring in the field (e.g. Ocean Engineering majors) or a naval or merchant marine officer candidate program. The course consists of 45 videotapes (average length of 35 minutes each) presented in a classroom lecture format by Dr. Paul R. Van Mater
