Abstract:

The authors have succeeded in blending general information about air cushion vehicles background information such as history, basic features of designs, and prospects for their development by the major sea powers of the world with detailed studies of the major hydro-aerodynamic problems encountered by design engineers concerning theories in the areas of speed, stability, manueverability and seaworthy capabilities of these strange, new craft. The result is a combination formal-informal guide which will enthuse, as well as inform, both students and technical engineers of the shipbuilding industry.
