HHI implements NAPA Steel 3D

Shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) has implemented NAPA Steel’s 3D model-based ship structural design tool across its business, the companies report.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}NAPA Steel provides an interactive 3D structural modelling interface. Once a model is created for the whole vessel, this can be used throughout the design process, including class society rule checks, creating plan approval drawings, FE (Finite Element) model generation, and weight calculation.

HHI was itself involved in the testing and development of NAPA Steel, and says it expects man-hours to be reduced by almost 30 per cent in ship structural design with the introduction of the software.

“NAPA Steel is one of the forerunners in ship structural design technology. We have been testing this new software over a long period of time and are sure that the roll-out of NAPA Steel will allow our engineers to become more productive, greatly enhancing the quality of ship structural design,” said Hong-Ryeul Ryu, head of the basic hull design department, Hyundai Heavy Industries.{/mprestriction}
