W Kell: 1462. Engineering Aesthetics in Warship Design. 1982.



The case is made that the aesthetic considerations that make a warship appear to be an effective combatant do not conflict with the design engineering considerations that contribute to combat effectiveness. The features suggested by Roach and Meier [1,2] for making a warship look warlike are shown to have been included in the configurations of two ships as a result primarily of engineering considerations, without stressing aesthetics.
