Ship Structural Analysis

Vessels of all shapes and sizes require a sound structural design in order to effectively carry out their mission. This design is developed through prudent arrangement and analysis of the vessel's major and minor structural members. Such ship structural arrangement and analysis is at the core of RESOLVE Engineering Group's (REG) expertise.

We design vessels to meet or exceed the criteria specified by regulatory agencies such as American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), Det Norske Veritas (DNV), United States Coast Guard (USCG) or any other agency. In addition, we employ first principles analysis to design and assess structure that is not governed by regulations. Other examples of our capabilities include:

  • Static Loading Analyses
  • Hull Girder Section Modulus Calculation
  • Longitudinal Strength
  • Stress Analysis and Criteria Comparison
  • Inertial Loads from Ship Motions
  • Scantling Reduction due to Corrosion
  • Vibration and Natural Frequency Calculations
  • Foundation Design
  • Structural Arrangement and Drawing Development
