We can design vessel constructions to standards set by the European Conformity (CE) or standards of various classification societies. Apart from the standards we will always use our common sense and company insights. For the calculation of structures we use programs of various classification societies and/or our own spreadsheets. The detailing of vessel structures and production of construction drawings is done, 2D and 3D, in CAD systems.
For the calculation of strength and stiffness we use the following software: SSC (Lloyd’s Register, London, GB). MAAT Hydro+ (SISTRE International, Volos, Greece): longitudinal strength. Femap/Nastran (SDRC, Milford, Ohio, USA): eindige finite element calculations.
As various in-house development spreadsheets.
For the production of construction drawings we use the following software: AutoCAD (AutoDesk Inc, San Rafael, CA, USA): 2D.
ShipConstructor (ShipConstructor Software Inc., Victoria, BC, Canada): 3D.
