This book addresses the hydrostatics and stability of ships and other floating marine structures - a fundamental aspect of naval architecture and offshore engineering for naval architects and marine engineers. It starts from the most basic concepts, assuming that the reader has no prior knowledge of the subject. By presenting the topic in a methodical and step-by-step manner, the book helps students to enhance their understanding, while also providing valuable guidelines for lecturers teaching related courses.
Dr Lee studied naval architecture at Seoul National University and ship production at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow. On completion of his PhD at Strathclyde he joined the academic staff of the Department where he taught ship hydrostatics and stability for over 35 years. During this time he tried to teach subjects other than hydrostatics. For example, he initiated the introduction of maritime transport and economics into the curriculum among other things and took particular pleasure in trying to teach this intractable subject to the naval architecture students. He also undertook a variety of research projects ranging from stability of ships, hydrodynamics and computer-aided design to container ship operations and safety of LNG-fuelled ships. He has now retired from teaching, although he retains an interest in helping PhD students.
Dr Lee used to enjoy playing the guitar badly but his arthritic fingers no longer allow this delight, but he is glad that he can put more energy into growing delicious organic tomatoes. He has recently discovered the joys of making things out of clay, and consequently the house is beginning to be filled with misshapen pots.
