Handbook of Marine Surveying
Sheridan House, Inc., 2007 - 246 pages
This expanded and updated edition of Thomas Ask s Handbook of Marine Surveying will be welcomed by students of marine surveying, professional marine surveyors, boatyard operators and technically-minded boat owners. It covers the latest surveying technology, including an analysis of the mechanical behavior of materials, stress concentration, failure analysis, fatigue an fracture, corrosion, wood-damaging organisms, the composition and characteristics of common plastics, metals and composite materials. New sections include: hull and deck loads, non-destructive testing, combustion and pollution, hydraulic and pneumatic systems, engine installations, fuel systems, electrical systems, piping and lubrication systems, HVAC/R systems, firefighting systems, noise and vibration, and propellers. There is also a useful survey checklist that provides practical techniques and hints for conducting a survey."
