The updated PrimeShip-HULL(Rules)/CSR and PrimeShip-HULL(DSA)/CSR software are provided free of charge to customers planning to perform CSR structural assessments.
The former, which can be used for both bulk carriers and tankers, is designed to perform structural evaluations using the scantling formulae defined in the CSR.
The latter is designed to perform the direct calculations defined in the CSR. Using FE models, users can execute FEM analyses through the use of special features like the automatic identification of structural members and compartments. A function to help users navigate the operation process is also provided.
ClassNK says that both applications have been updated to help make design work more efficient.
Customers planning to perform CSR structural assessments are invited to contact ClassNK’s Hull Department or Natural Resources and Energy Department to apply to use these products.
