Product Description

This book covering the marine bulk cargo measurement (MBCM) survey (also known as a ‘draught survey’) is for both marine surveyors and ships’ officers. It is also a source of ‘theory into practice’ applications for naval architects. The basics of naval architecture are outlined so that you can follow and understand the steps taken during a marine bulk cargo measurement (MBCM) survey. MBCM surveys are usually carried out on bulk carriers, a type of ship that has undergone substantial changes and improvements since the 1990s. However, while the size of the ships has steadily increased and their designs have changed, the original principles and concepts of naval architecture remain unchanged.
