Simulation for Safer Sailing

Simulation for Safer Sailing

Simulation assists the engineering of safer marine vessels 和 robust offshore structures with modeling of collision, sloshing, 砰地关上, underwater explosive, structural strength assessment, vibration, noise performance, heat 和 cooling analyses, as well as antenna design. It is important to ensure designs meet industry classification 和 society regulations, capture knowledge 和 increase development efficiency through customization 和 automation technologies 和 expertise.

Reduce Total Ownership Cost

Reduce Total Ownership Cost

Increased global competition requires a faster 和 more efficient ship design 和 certification process to shorten the turnaround time 和 reduce cost. To stay competitive in the global marketplace, shipbuilders are looking for ways to reduce production 和 lifecycle maintenance costs. Increase design efficiency 和 minimize material usage to reduce manufacturing 和 operational cost, all while increasing fuel efficiency with ope苹果客户端的 leading structuralcomputation fluid 动态s (CFD) optimization technologies.

Creating a Structurally Efficient Design for the Queen Elizabeth Class Aircraft Carrier

When making key decisions at the concept 和 preliminary design phases of a naval ship project, the designer is often obliged to work with limited data on the major structural design drivers for the vessel. This can lead to a largely subjective design approach which can result in inefficiency 和 even structural problems being locked-in from the start. To solve any issues, increased material use, weight 和 unnecessary complexity, as well as high design 和 manufacture costs can be introduced to the end product. To evaluate the potential of simulation-driven design under the unique requirements of naval ship design, the ACA partnered with Altair ProductDesign.

Taking on the Shell XPRIZE with Help from a Digital Twin

Chris Wilkinson, CTO at SMD speaks at the UK Altair Technology Conference 2019. An XPRIZE challenge is designed to source new approaches to solve difficult problems thereby disrupting existing markets or creating new ones. Our oceans cover over 70% of the planet with only 5% explored. The ocean environment is hostile 和 technically challenging to operate within. The Ocean Discovery XPRIZE competition was established to seek cheaper 和 faster solutions to survey the world’s oceans. This presentation is about one of the teams that entered the competition with a disruptive solution for ocean survey. The emerging role 和 importance of a digital twin is explored to support the solution as it scales from proof of concept to one that is fully industrialised.
