Summary: Hydrodynamics of High-Speed Vehicles discusses the three main categories of high-speed marine vehicles, vessels supported by submerged hulls, air cushions, or foils. The wave environment, resistance, propulsion, seakeeping, sea loads, and maneuvering are extensively covered based on rational and simplified methods. Links to automatic control and structural mechanics are emphasized. A detailed description of waterjet propulsion is given, and the effect of water depth on
wash, resistance, sinkage, and trim is discussed.
