About this item

Reeds Introductions: Physics Wave Concepts for Marine Engineering Applications covers the fundamental theoretical maritime physics concepts which underpin electromagnetic wave and sonar principles as developed in most maritime-related courses, whether Naval, Coastguard, or Merchant Marine engineering. For these reasons it is vital that maritime users have a basic understanding of the concepts upon which many essential modern sea-going sensors and communications devices now operate.

Knowledge regarding electromagnetic waves and electromagnetic devices is an established merchant navy sea service requirement, particularly for the Standards in Training and Certification in Watchkeeping (STCW95) qualification in various Maritime Coastguard Agency exams, e.g. Marine Electrotechnology (as Chief Engineer and Second Engineer), as mandated by the UK Department for Transport. This short introductory book is written as simply as possible to support growing numbers of overseas students for whom English is not their first language.

This volume is a comprehensive study of maritime physics principles and provides an introduction to the following Reeds Marine Engineering series: volumes 1, 3, 6, 7, 14, and 15. Students having read this easy-to-read volume will be better prepared for the more in-depth study of the other volumes listed.
