The Work of Naval Engineers

Naval Architecture, or marine engineering, is an engineering discipline dealing with design processes, shipbuilding, maintenance, and operation of marine vessels and structures.

Naval engineers are responsible for the safe design and specification of ships, boats, and marine structures, both civil and military, including merchant ships (cargo and passenger), warships, submarines & underwater vehicles, offshore structures (fixed & floating), high speed craft, workboats and pleasure craft.

At the same time, naval architecture and maritime engineering also involve the formulation of safety regulations and damage control rules and the approval and certification of ship designs to meet statutory and non-statutory requirements.

Structural Analysis in Naval Engineering

Among most of the principal elements of naval architecture (hydrostatic, hydrodynamics, structures, arrangements, and constructions) lies a core structure stage that must support these applications, where powerful structural analysis is essential. There is a selection of materials, sizing and positioning involved in the marine structures, which is bound to keep the structure and its equipment safe from failure. This includes an analysis of global and local aspects of the vessel, vibration of the structural components and structural responses of the vessel during motions in seaway.

From quick checks to complex projects, SkyCiv allows you to model and analyse beams, shafts, truss, frames and other various components of ship design.

Design Components and Sub Structures

SkyCiv can be used to quickly and easily design frames and naval sub structures, up to 10x faster than traditional FEA software. The software uses 1D beam elements and 2D plate (shell) elements which can be quickly modelled and meshed to perform accurate structural analysis.

SkyCiv software is extremely intuitive and easy to use, so the learning curve is very short. Since there's nothing to download or install, you can get started instantly!

Case Study

Tried and Tested by Real Engineers around the World
Rupert Shaw - Managing Director at Lighthouse Naval Architecture
Rupert Shaw, Managing Director at Lighthouse Naval Architecture, started using Skyciv as a tool for engineering calcs relating to ship based structures such as A-frames, vehicle decks, vehicle ramps, link-spans etc. In his own words: " SkyCiv Structural Software assists me with the design and analysis of structural components and assemblies. I like that Skyciv is cloud based, constantly evolving/upgrading and simple to use. I find it particularly useful to check reactions and internal member forces for complex assemblies as well as to validate hand calculations."
