About the Author

Eric Tupper is a Fellow and Honorary Vice-President of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA), UK. In 2011 he received the William Froude Medal for outstanding contribution to naval architecture from RINA for his Basic Ship Theory books, co-authored with Ken Rawson. His long career in naval architecture has included ship design, hydrodynamic and structural research, and ship production.


"He approaches the science and art of naval architecture in physical rather than mathematical terms, in order to explain the fundamental principles in a clear manner that should be adequate for many people associated with maritime matters. For naval architects proper, he provides a framework to fill in with the details needed to become a designer, builder, or researcher."--Reference & Research Book News, October 2013 "..a clear and concise introduction to the subject, giving a good grasp of the basics of naval architecture."--Maritime Journal
