ClassNK releases new version of hull software

ClassNK has released the latest version of its vessel design support software PrimeShip-HULL (HCSR), developed in response to the latest updates to the IACS Common Structural Rules for Bulk Carriers and Oil Tankers (CSR BC & OT).

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The new version 5.0.0 incorporates rule amendments to CSR BC & OT (Rule Change Notice 1 to CSR 01 JAN 2017 version), while also expanding functionality within the application’s prescriptive calculation and direct strength assessment modules.

The calculation report function found in the prescriptive calculation software is now a stand-alone system, allowing users to create calculation reports while editing cross section data or operating the calculation window.

The prescriptive calculation software now also includes enhanced data linking capabilities, to add body plan data from 2D CAD software or to import transverse member data from NAPA Steel models into the initial design function of the software.

The direct strength assessment software now includes a ‘parameter check and update’ function which can detect model-dependent parameters and update them automatically, and the design support tool for yield assessment has also been streamlined.{/mprestriction}
