How to confidently design and virtually test ship piping system workflows with simulation software

Applying simulation software to improve maritime thermo-fluid systems


Dramatically reduce the time to virtual test and validate shipboard piping systems by leveraging CAD data

The marine industry is under pressure to reduce costs and produce high-tech solutions in a shorter development cycle and with the highest quality possible. Watch this webinar to learn how you can gain a competitive advantage by utilizing an integrated computer-aided engineering (CAE) process in the design of ship piping systems.

Using an example of a marine engine room, propulsion system and its associated piping, you will learn how to utilize the data within your computer-aided design files to:

  • Quickly and accurately construct the piping system analysis model
  • Limit data input errors through direct data transfer
  • Assess the pressures and flow rates within the piping system
  • Assess the thermal efficiency of the piping system

Advanced technology for smart ships

Smart ships utilizing hybrid electric systems are increasing in adoption, as are electric ships for certain applications that remain closer to shore. Due to challenges of weight and cost, electric ships cannot yet support offshore shipping purposes. Digital transformation is key to actualizing these advancements. In this case, it requires the ability to view the ship piping system within a holistic digital twin to streamline the design and simulation processes.

Integrated simulation tools, such as Simcenter system simulation with Siemens NX, serve that exact purpose. Explore how you can create your piping system models from the data that is already stored in the pipe routing created in the NX models of your ship. With this approach and integrated process, you can reduce the model creation time by up to 90%.

Documenting flow analysis for marine vessels

Conducting flow analysis of piping systems is critical to establish safe and efficient operability of numerous thermo-fluid systems. Learn how Simcenter Flomaster can be used to help you understand the implications of design choices early in the design phase, achieve compliancy with safety norms and more.

Accurately quantify hydrodynamic forces

Without preventative safety features in place, unchecked surge and cavitation in auxiliary systems can be catastrophic. Simcenter Flomaster can simulate these changes as well as accurately quantify resultant hydrodynamic forces. Discover how you can quickly evaluate different scenarios to determine the optimal design and pipeline loads to facilitate pipe stress simulations.

Watch the webinar recording to explore all the ways that an integrated CAE process can be leveraged to confidently design and test ship piping systems.
