"This work is significant. It is the first to include a method of assessing structural strength in the context of the modern marine environment." --Commander M. C. Cruder, U.S. Coast Guard Acclaimed author and naval architect Dave Gerr created this unique system of easy-to-use scantling rules and rules-of-thumb for calculating the necessary dimensions, or scantlings, of hulls, decks, and other boat parts, whether built of fiberglass, wood, wood-epoxy composite, steel, or aluminum. In addition to the rules themselves, The Elements of Boat Strength offers their context: an in-depth, plain-English discussion of boatbuilding materials, methods, and practices that will guide you through all aspects of boat construction. Now you can avoid wading through dense technical engineering manuals or tackling advanced mathematics. The Elements of Boat Strength has all the formulas, tables, illustrations, and charts you need to judge how heavy each piece of your boat should be in order to last and be safe. With this book, an inexpensive scientific calculator, and a pad of paper, you'll be able to design and specify all the components necessary to build a sound, long-lasting, rugged vessel. What reviewers have said about Dave Gerr's books: Propeller Handbook "By far the best book available on the subject."--Sailing "The best layman's guide we've ever read."--Practical Sailor Dave Gerr and International Marine made a complicated topic understandable and put it into a handbook that is easy to use."--WoodenBoat "Without doubt the definitive reference for selecting, installing, and understanding boat propellers."--Royal Navy Sailing Association Journal The Nature of Boats "If you are not nautically obsessed before reading this book, you will most certainly be afterward."--Sailing Fascinating potpourri of information about today's boats, modern and traditional."--WoodenBoat

Apple, Audi, Braun oder Samsung machen es vor: Gutes Design ist heute eine kritische Voraussetzung für erfolgreiche Produkte. Dieser Klassiker beschreibt die fundamentalen Prinzipien, um Dinge des täglichen Gebrauchs umzuwandeln in unterhaltsame und zufriedenstellende Produkte. Don Norman fordert ein Zusammenspiel von Mensch und Technologie mit dem Ziel, dass Designer und Produktentwickler die Bedürfnisse, Fähigkeiten und Handlungsweisen der Nutzer in den Vordergrund stellen und Designs an diesen angepasst werden. The Design of Everyday Things ist eine informative und spannende Einführung für Designer, Marketer, Produktentwickler und für alle an gutem Design interessierten Menschen. Zum Autor Don Norman ist emeritierter Professor für Kognitionswissenschaften. Er lehrte an der University of California in San Diego und der Northwest University in Illinois. Mitte der Neunzigerjahre leitete Don Norman die Advanced Technology Group bei Apple. Dort prägte er den Begriff der User Experience, um über die reine Benutzbarkeit hinaus eine ganzheitliche Erfahrung der Anwender im Umgang mit Technik in den Vordergrund zu stellen. Norman ist Mitbegründer der Beratungsfirma Nielsen Norman Group und hat unter anderem Autohersteller von BMW bis Toyota beraten. „Keiner kommt an Don Norman vorbei, wenn es um Fragen zu einem Design geht, das sich am Menschen orientiert.“ Brand Eins 7/2013 „Design ist einer der wichtigsten Wettbewerbsvorteile. Dieses Buch macht Spaß zu lesen und ist von größter Bedeutung.” Tom Peters, Co-Autor von „Auf der Suche nach Spitzenleistungen“

The First Ever Guide for Optimizing Boat Systems This guide is invaluable for anyone designing or installing mechanical systems on a new boat, retrofitting an existing boat, or evaluating a boat's operating condition. Writing for designers, builders, owners, buyers, mechanics, surveyors, and insurers of sailboats, powerboats, and commercial vessels, Dave Gerr provides design and installation guidance for each major mechanical system plus pragmatic guidelines and real-world interpretations of American Boat & Yacht Council (ABYC) and European standards. No marine professional or serious boater should be without Boat Mechanical Systems Handbook. "Dave Gerr has a knack for breaking down the more esoteric concepts of naval architecture into language that’s easily understood by the layman, which is one of the reasons why his writing often appears in the pages of SAIL. Another reason is his deep practical knowledge of the intricacies and subtleties of boat construction and systems, and the way they relate to each other. The subhead of Boat Mechanical Systems Handbook says it all--'how to design, install and recognize proper systems in boats.' Light reading this isn’t, but if you’re about to refit your boat or upgrade outdated systems, perhaps with some serious voyaging in mind, this book is a worthwhile investment. This is a unisex book, for both powerboaters and sailors; there’s no mention of sailing rigs, but every other conceivable system is covered more or less exhaustively." --PETER NIELSEN, SAIL, November 2009 Praise for Dave Gerr's previous books: The Elements of Boat Strength: “Certain books, because of their thoroughness, tend to become industry standards; such is the case with The Elements of Boat Strength.” --Ocean Navigator Propeller Handbook: “The best layman's guide we've ever read.” --Practical Sailor “Gerr made a complicated topic understandable and put it into a handbook that is easy to use.” --WoodenBoat The Nature of Boats: “Offers, in a disarmingly charming fashion, a look at all aspects of what makes a boat work. If you are not nautically obsessed prior to reading this book, you most certainly will be afterward.” --Sailing

Questo nuovo volume sulla comprensione e progettazione delle barche completa il precedente (più teorico e dedicato alla fisica della vela, allo scafo, alle appendici e al piano velico), affrontando con un approccio più pratico i materiali, i sistemi costruttivi, i calcoli e i dimensionamenti. Il volume muove dal disegno della barca, dall'idea originaria al piano esecutivo, per passare ai materiali (legno, i compositi polimerici, i metalli) e sistemi di costruzione. La terza parte è dedicata ai calcoli strutturali delle diverse parti dell'imbarcazione e ai suoi dimensionamenti. Viene così affrontata la costruzione dello scafo e della coperta, della chiglia, del timone, delle attrezzature veliche, fino ai materiali necessari per le manovre correnti. La lunga esperienza dell'autore permetta a chi legge di realizzare il sogno di costruirsi un'imbarcazione.

Dozens of detailed drawings plus delightful descriptions and reminiscences of the boats and the people who loved them, the text accompanying each design centers on the background of each boat rather than on a technical study. Each essay is as different as the boat it describes, sometimes explaining a detail of the building process, the origins of a design, the individuals involved, or the evolution of a yacht type.

Eine Einführung in die physikalischen Grundlagen des Segelsports für die an Naturwissenschaften interessierten Segler, die schon immer wissen wollten, wie Segeln tatsächlich funktioniert. »Physik des Segelns« führt zunächst in die einfachen Grundsätze und Bedingungen des Segelns ein, wie beispielsweise das Kräftegleichgewicht während der Fahrt. Anschließend wird aus den Eigenschaften von Luft und Wasser und den dynamischen Grundgleichungen das Entstehen dieser Kräfte dargelegt. Das Buch räumt mit verbreiteten falschen Vorstellungen auf und schreitet systematisch von der Betrachtung zweidimensionaler Phänomene zu dreidimensionalen Phänomenen voran. Von Erscheinungen innerhalb der Medien Luft und Wasser geht es weiter zu den Erscheinungen an ihrer Grenzfl äche, den Schwerewellen des Wassers und dem damit verbundenen Widerstand. Mit der Kenntnis aller Beiträge zur Vortriebsleistung wird erläutert, wie sie aufeinander abgestimmt werden müssen, um ein optimales Segeltempo zu erreichen. Abschließend werden zeitlich veränderliche Phänomene wie Manöver und das Arbeiten des Bootes im Seegang betrachtet, und die Materialfestigkeit von Takelage und Rumpf diskutiert.
