Marine Engineering Economics and Cost Analysis

Marine Engineering Economics and Cost Analysis is intended for students and practitioners of ship design, shipbuilding, and ship operations who want to understand and apply the concepts of engineering economics to routine engineering decisions. Computer software is included to aid in completing the analyses required. To my knowledge this is the first text published during my fifty-year career...that deals with the methods of economic evaluation of maritime decision alternatives from an engineering viewpoint...This book applies engineering economics and cost analysis to the maritime industry and sets forth in a logical sequence the method to reach the most efficient vessel from both a cost and capacity-required approach.from the foreword by Captain Warren G. Leback, former maritime administrator.
