Knovel has announced its 32nd subject area: Marine Engineering & Naval Architecture. The collection was developed for design engineers in the engineering design and construction, and oil and gas sectors. It aims to help engineers specify and design ships, marine equipment, and offshore structures for longer service lives, more efficient operation, and safer conditions for workers.
This subject area will provide: practical design guidance on offshore platform and ship design and performance; adapting machinery and equipment for use in marine environments; and improving performance of marine engines, pumps, and electronics. It provides examples of how to design for ship/wave interaction and offers guidance about the criteria ships and vessels will be graded against by the various governmental and private classification agencies. It also covers the repair and maintenance of structures, ships and marine equipment – including cost estimating, scheduling and performance criteria.
