Naval Engineering

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. Naval architecture and maritime engineering also involves the formulation of safety regulations and damage control rules and the approval and certification of ship designs to meet statutory and non-statutory requirements.

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. This is where a powerful structural analysis software become essential. These marine structures involve a selection of materials, sizing and positioning that 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.

Case Study

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."
