Hybrid Ship Hulls provides an overview of cutting-edge developments in hybrid composite-metal marine ship hulls, covering the critical differences in material processing and structural behavior that must be taken into account to maximise benefits and performance. Supporting the design of effective hybrid hulls through proper consideration of the benefits and challenges inherent to heterogenic structures, the book covers specific details of quality control, manufacturing, mechanical and thermal stress, and other behavioral aspects that need to be treated differently when engineering hybrid ship hulls. With a particular focus on heavy-duty naval applications, the book includes guidance on the selection of composite part configurations, innovative design solutions, novel hybrid joining techniques, and serviceability characterization.

About Vladimir M. Shkolnikov

Dr. Vladimir M. Shkolnikov has over 40 years of combined Russian-American experience in composite science and engineering, primarily relating to naval structural applications. Throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s he was involved in most R&D projects involving composites application for the Russian/Soviet Navy, being a Research Scientist/Sr. Research Scientist in the Krylov State Research Centre (1972-1991) and then a Sr. Research Scientist in the Institute of Transportation Problems of the Russian Academy of Sciences (1991-1995), both in St. Petersburg, Russia. Since moving to the U.S. in 1995 he has conducted a number of challenging projects for the U.S. Department of Defense and other federal agencies and private companies. His most recent investigation, sponsored by the Office of Naval Research, is dedicated to development of advanced hybrid (composite-to metal) joining technology for heavy-duty naval applications.
