KR updates hull structure software for Harmonized Common Structural Rules

The Korean Register (KR) reports that it has overhauled its ship design support software package, SeaTrust-HullScan, to more efficiently handle the process of applying incoming Harmonized Common Structural Rules (CSR-H).

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}KR says that, since CSR-H includes a significant expansion in the scope of the direct strength analysis of vessel hulls, more time and resources are required to meet the new requirements.

As a result, the society has incorporated additional functionality into its new version of SeaTrust-HullScan to support modelling through interfaces with specialised 3D CAD systems, such as AVEVA Marine, Smart Marine 3D, and others widely used in shipyards in Korea.

The new hull structure software allows for the review of data so that calculation results can be analysed, with results evaluated through automatic generation of buckling panels based on a Finite Element Methodology (FEM).

SeaTrust-HullScan was initially launched in 2013 and KR says it has now been adopted by almost all shipbuilders and ship designers in Korea.

“We constantly work hard to save time and money for our customers. This completely overhauled software solution shortens the time yards and designers need to spend on ensuring the new structural rules are applied correctly,” said Dr Kim Chang-Wook, executive vice president of KR’s Technical Division.

“The unique feedback system built into the software encourages an open dialogue with our customers and is helping them make full use of the new solution. I am confident that SeaTrust-HullScan will help our customers generate rapid and more accurate modelling.”

The harmonised rule set became effective from 1 July 2015.{/mprestriction}
