This book is based on lectures given by the authors at the Leningrad Shipbuilding Institute. The first chapter contains a brief exposition of modern theories of a low-aspect-ratio wing. In the second and third chapters the conclusions of these theories are used to determine the external forces operating on the hull of a ship and its rudder in curvilinear motion. On the basis of the expressions thus obtained we find the coefficients of the differential equations for the motion of a ship and make a thorough analysis of these equations. In the fourth chapter we study cases of the motion of a ship permitting the use of the linear theory, and in the fifth chapter, we make an attempt to define those problems in steerability which must be solved by a non-linear statement of the problem. In this book we describe briefly the experimental methods for determining the hydrodynamic characteristics of the ship necessary for calculating its steerability, and also experimental methods of studying the turning qualities of a ship under full-scale conditions and by using self-propelled models. Practical calculations for steerability are given in the appendix
