The basic concepts of the theory of dimensional analysis and similarity are presented, on the basis of which a number of problems related to the hydromechanics of ships are solved a group of problems with respect to water-displacing ships are analyzed. The major part of the book is dedicated to the problems that arise in connection with the development of high-speed craft. To these belong steady and non-steady planing, various aspects of cavitational phenomena, motion of hydrofoil and air-cushion craft, deformations of the free surface and spray formation.
