Ship Construction


Another training software developed specifically to be used by future naval architects. It is the first of two programs directed at learners who are studying to get the professional merchant navy deck officer COC (certificates of competence).

The course covers the syllabus requirements for the SQA examination plus HNC level units that are being offered by maritime colleges as part of the training required for certification to Officer of the Watch level (OOW/STCW 95). The new approach applied by the developers of this training program gives it some additional advantages over the majority of the textbooks addressing the ship stability - note that most of them assume quite high level of math ability.

This program presents the whole learning material in a very user-friendly, easy understandable manner. The content of the course has been divided into nineteen section. The first one is purely introductory, The other sections deal with everything relating to the ship stability, i.e. basic stability principles, form coefficients of the ship's hull, load lines, transverse statical stability, free surface effect, stability curves, list, various characteristics of the intact and damage stability, effect of the suspended weights, procedure of the inclining test and evaluation of the results obtained, hydrostatic data, trim, practical vessel loading problems etc.

This release of the ShipConstructor is a very user-friendly 3D tool for modeling, that was specifically developed to be used by the shipbuilding industry professionals, such as naval architects and ship constructors. This powerful parametric modeling program is database-driven is arranged so that it runs into the AutoCAD 2007/2008 and easily interfaces with a huge number of supported programs, such as Max- and MultiSurf, Rhino, Inventor and others.

It took three years to develop this program. It shall be noted that this software is much better platform than any of the predecessors - it is more robust and user-friendly in comparison to the previous release. The overall functionality of this release is quite similar to the one of the SC 2006 so there is no any need for additional training; in the meantime, the performance of the program has been significantly improved.

There are also some new modules under development at the moment - they are being released or planned for release in the nearest future. Please also note that the system requirements for this release are slightly higher than for the previous one. However, two versions of the software, say 2005 and 2008, can be run at the same time.

We introduce the new 3.1. version of Simufact Welding software that was developed by Simufact professionals and released in 2013. Here is the brief overview of some new features: In this release of the program start scripts can be defined separately; domain decomposition is now supported; "refresh results" button during calculation now copies result files of first and last time step for Simufact Solver in order to reduce network traffic; GUI can be started without necessity to possess administrator rights; moreover, local installation of the GUI is not necessary anymore.

In addition to the above, there are even more newly implemented features in Simufact Solver, as well - for example, optimization of memory management, of check routines and improvement of calculation time especially by implementation of Domain Decomposition Method (DDM), parallelization by decomposition into smaller calculable domains communicating with each other. Can be combined with multiprocessing.

DDM allows the calculation of large models. This software will be useful and practical to the engineers dealing with ship design and construction as well as to the students who may use the program for training purposes.

The present welding software is specifically intended to be utilized for modeling the weld technology, to define the weld stress as well as welding deformations. The application of this program will help to reduce the number of test pieces, find the optimal conditions of fastening and the best arrangement of the weld seams. Among the welding types that can be modeled using Weld Planner there are contact welding, fillet welding, butt welding, arc welding, manual and semi-automatic welding and even laser welding.

The intention of the developers was to create a program that could be used by the design and construction professionals for evaluation of the welding distortion of large welded assemblies and provide necessary recommendations for the clamping positions and sequence of welding that would minimize the distortion. As a result, this would help to solve a very complex model maintaining the acceptable accuracy level and providing insightful and timely outcome to the customers.

The program has been in use for modeling welding deformations worldwide and was proven effective and reliable. It is enough fast and straightforward; another advantage of this program is the simplified representation of the material - this is possible because the analysis bases only on the shrinkage techniques. The graphical interface of the program is very intuitive.
