The object of this paper is to bring to the attention of mechanical engineers a number of dynamical problems encountered in the theory of the ship; to indicate briefly the form of corresponding differential equations and their solutions; to analyze the validity of underlying theoretical assumptions; and to approach in this manner a comparison of the ship’s dynamics with problems commonly encountered in other fields, such as that of vibration theory.
