    The ITTC has started to set up some interesting wiki pages at:
    http://www.ittcwiki.org

    From the statement on the front page:

    "..this Dictionary is intended for a broad readership including practising naval architects who wish to acquire and apply knowledge of hydrodynamics and also physicists and theoretical hydrodynamicists who wish to apply their particular knowledge to the solution of ship problems. Engineering, physical and nautical terms in common use have not been included when they did not require special definition in the context of ship hydrodynamics or when their meanings were self evident. The work is arranged in the following sections prefaced with a brief reference to the nature of their content:

    General
    Ship Geometry
    Resistance
    Propeller (including propeller geometry)
    Cavitation
    Seakeeping
    Manoeuvrability
    Performance (in the context of speed and power)
