The course is an introduction to the Nauticus Hull ship structural analysis and design program for rule compliance checks on hull girder strength, and plate and stiffener scantling checks for a hull cross section. The main focus is on cross-section modelling and analyses executions. The course covers how to use the software for DNV Rules, DNV GL Rules and Common Structural Rules for Bulk Carriers and Oil Tankers (CSR BC & OT).
After the course, you should be able to use Nauticus Hull to carry out compliance checks on the hull girder and cross sections according to rule requirements.
The following topics will be covered:
- Describing ship particulars and main data
- Describing tank plan, compartments and loads
- Scantlings modelling
- Prescriptive rule check analyses
- Fatigue analyses
- Results presentation
Most of the procedures and methodology are common for all sets of rules. Where there are differences, the course will cover the alternatives for rules that are relevant for the participants.
