Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book presents sloshing with marine and land-based applications, with a focus on ship tanks. It also includes the nonlinear multimodal method developed by the authors and an introduction to computational fluid dynamics. Emphasis is also placed on rational and simplified methods, including several experimental results. Topics of special interest include antirolling tanks, linear sloshing, viscous wave loads, damping, and slamming. The book contains numerous illustrations, examples, and exercises.

Book News Annotation:

Authors Faltinsen (associate, National Academy of Engineering, USA) and Timokha (applied mathematics, Institute of Mathematics and Norwegian U. of Science and Technology) offer a textbook on the analytically based nonlinear multimodal method for sloshing and on computational fluid dynamics (CFD), viscous flow, the effect of internal structures, and slamming. The book primarily addresses issues of concern in ship tanks where sloshing can be particularly violent. Additional topics include antirolling tanks, linear sloshing, viscous wave loads, damping, and slamming. While the text is very technical, the writing is clear and straightforward. The text is supported by a large number of illustrations, examples, and exercises. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
