Efficient ship modelling
On the FEM side, there are improvements to the functionality for modelling the non-parallel fore and aft part of the cargo area, including the import of the hull shape from stability software. Ship- specific modelling features, such as adding longitudinals to the outer shell, have been significantly improved.
It is also possible to reuse finite element models from other software systems. GeniE includes powerful algorithms to automatically generate mesh according to various requirements. For further improved mesh control, the hull design software has been updated with functionality for partial meshing and state-of-the-art tools for manual mesh adjustments.
