ABS launches guidance and software for container stack analysis

ABS has launched its new Guide for Certification of Container Securing Systems, along with a companion software package to aid in implementation.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}By year’s end, ABS says that the Guide will introduce significant changes in on-deck container stack load analysis and lashing bridge design load calculations, introducing non-linear methodology to that analysis to more accurately determine container carrying capabilities.

The software tool, known as C-LASH, provides non-linear direct calculations for load analysis of these on-deck container stacks. ABS says that this proprietary software will allow operators and designers to better understand the impact of twist lock clearance and lashings to help optimise cargo capacity.

“In today’s operating environment, container ship owners must improve performance while maintaining reliability and safety,” said ABS vice president for container ships, Matt Tremblay.

“These cutting-edge tools provide industry leading guidance that optimises operational capacity and enhances safety for container ships.”{/mprestriction}
