This webinar highlights how digital tools, including process automation, simulation, and design space exploration, can help you stay in control of the ship design spiral.
The current ship design process is complex and time-consuming. During the initial tender phase, time is limited: proposing a hull design that minimizes capital expenditure (CAPEX) during build, whilst meeting operational expenditure (OPEX) demands of the customer, as well as certification requirements, remains a challenging task.
Learn how a simulation-driven approach to ship design enables rapid development and testing of multiple hull designs so you can meet tender deadlines and have full confidence in vessel performance.
Move from disconnected teams working in silos to a connected approach. Using a master model, or digital twin of the ship, connect all data throughout the ship design process. This master model contains CAD data (including general arrangement, structural design, and marine systems). Any simulation starts with importing the relevant data from the master model. Any alterations based on the simulations can be fed back to the master model. This digital twin contains all information relevant to the vessel at any stage of the ship design process. The model is freely available and accessible to all teams, removing lags in information between different departments.
Optimize your ship design process by connecting various disciplines for multidomain design exploration. While computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulation software is growing in use in the marine industry, combining it with design exploration software takes your analysis to the next level. Naval architects can focus on design analysis rather than setting up marine simulations. Specify the requirements and restraints for your vessel, then let the software drive the process, simulating multiple designs and assessing their hydrodynamic efficiency. You can efficiently find design concepts that meet or exceed your performance requirements and compare designs and trade-offs between different specifications.
