Efficient design iteration process
The new CSR rules are based on the first principles of physics instead of on empirically based models. This will provide a better answer to the conditions the ship will experience in reality. However, it also means a shift towards more computerization of the rule formulations and structural assessments. Good support from ship structural analysis and design software will be essential in the design process.
These more advanced methods of determining loads and structural strength will give a better picture of how a design will perform in reality. The latest Nauticus Hull and Sesam GeniE address the needs of ship designers, who will be working with an increased number of models and load cases, and will gain from a streamlined and efficient design iteration process.
