William Rankine was interested in naval architecture. Rankine examined the rolling, dipping, and heaving motion of ships in waves. Similarly, his two-dimensional analysis of the flow of water around circular and oval bodies enabled him to determine the waterlines of a ship that would create a minimum of friction as it moved through the sea; he also calculated the efficiency of propellers. A number of his papers were ... View more info

Scoop circulation is a method of circulating condensing water in such a manner that the moderate speed of a ship will cause a projection to "scoop" sea water into the condenser without the use of the circulating pump. This was an important method of designing fast naval vessels from 1892 to the 1930s. View more info
